This morning I log in and try to level up mining, only I repeatedly see Pyrite nodes but I can’t mine it until 525. It takes about an hour to get the last 8 mining points to hit 525.
Of course after I hit that, I only see one Pyrite node. I farm up around 5 stacks of Elementium Ore, and the nodes are stingy with the Volatiles items and I only get like one per 10 nodes. I get one gem, a Ember Topaz. I get a little tired of flying around so I stand around in a spot where I had just farmed a node, and one spawned again shortly after. Nice! Lazy mining at its best. Elementium spawns WAY more than Obisdium I noticed, when I see up to 4 nodes in the same area I am in. Amazing.
I finish farming like a crazy person and rack up nearly 10 stacks of the ore, and 13 Pyrite. I didn’t get any more gems but got a few Volatile Fires, Earth and Water. I can use the fires in tailoring.
I head back to SW and there is a funny discussion about getting ports to various places and Seology remarks that “Mage’s aren’t a magic door, they can’t send you everywhere”. So true!
