Rare collections are a crucial part of leveling your Adventurer job and obtaining the clothing items. Rare exploration collection items can be spotted by their moving sparkling tokens which must be clicked to collect. Tokens associated with towns have the icon for the town. The Sanctuary and Wilds coins use the Sanctuary World Tree logo. While they're hard to find, at least you know when you've got one, unlike normal exploration where sometimes the trigger spots can be a pain to find even though you know you're in the right general location.
In-town locations are often behind, inside, or underneath things. Out-of-town locations require lots of running, climbing, and looking around. Sometimes you can see the token and have to figure out how to reach it, which may involve some route plotting and a jump in just the right spot. Some require swimming, but are always on top of the water, never below.
Collection names often provide hints to help find the location. The Wilds Northwest, Northeast, Southeast and Southwest collections are relative to Sanctuary as the central point.
After collecting the token, it will disappear for the person who collected it, but remain behind for anyone who has not!
