Start at Camp Reclamation Waypoint [&BO8JAAA=]. While this is a "node farm", there a lot of free chests that are along the way. This will net lots of Unidentified Gear while obtaining Elder Wood Logs. It is best to have the Shrines unlocked in the map. I did this in about 8-9 characters to acehieve a 1 hour farm.
