I found this great trick at mmoverload.com I can realy recoment this page as it got tons of tricks and tips, exploits, level guides and the first addons/UI customizations for age of conan I have seen on the net.
When you hit lvl 20 you can start picking up harvesting quests in the 3 places where you can buy guildcities - lotus swamp, poltain and that mountain place i havent been to yet.
you pick up quests which require you to get 20 of each resource before you can harvest rares so i made 2 maps over spots in poltain and in lotus swamp where you can see where the nodes are for ez hunting.
the maps arent perfect but in the general area around the spots.
nodes got 100% health and harvesting once will take them down 10% and they slowly regen, so they wont jump spots.
you can get interrupted by mobs that pop on you when done with the node so beware.
