Mark these locations on them, so that you can easily pick them up. Everything in this game comes attached with a cooldown of their own, and pinecones could have a 24-hour cooldown. If you have picked it up once, then head to other locations to find more pinecones. There is another elaborate method that you can use to farm every single item irrespective of the cooldown.

If you hopped into another player’s world, you will get a chance to pick up items once again. However, you won’t be able to open treasure chests, domains, and few other things. Use this method to pick up any specialty item that you would need to ascend a particular character.
