Throughout the world of Guild Wars there are collectors scattered about the landscape, searching for a number of certain items such as Bleached Shells or Fetid Carapaces. In return for these "collectibles" they offer items such as armor and weapons which may be of value for players. Due to the huge number of collectors throughout the world, we've separated them into the following categories:

Keep in mind that collectors only take drops from the geographical region they're in (with exceptions explained below); Jade Mandibles from the Crystal Desert zones are never going to be accepted by a collector in Lion's Arch. If you can't remember where you got a drop from, a helpful hint is that the value of collectable drops usually stay the same throughout one region, with only two known exceptions (though multiple regions might have the same value). Be warned that some drops which match the profile of what you would expect for a collectable might not have a collector at all.
