@  Jask : (28 November 2014 - 07:51 AM) To me it feels like just another white cop shooting an African-American civilian trial that the news has blown up, though in this case it seems (from my very limited attention to it) to be a little more in favor of the cop that other cases.Though it sounds like there was still some bullshit in the justice system. Still doesn't feel like it should have gone national, let alone international. And the rioting is just shitty opportunism.
@  Basukesu : (28 November 2014 - 05:51 AM) Yah just watching it form the outside so my commentary is probably weak on the subject, but the observations made by the press here in Japan and elsewhere world wide CUT DEEP into my American point of view. >< Very embarrassing all around.
@  BizzarreCoyote : (27 November 2014 - 08:46 PM) I'd rather not comment on that shitstorm, to be honest. It's an embarrassing situation that just keeps popping up.
@  Basukesu : (27 November 2014 - 02:35 AM) On a totally unrelated topic, I have been living under a rock. Watching this whole Ferguson thing from overseas is half comical/half sad/half wtf!? It really makes America look about as bad as some of the worst places on earth. That part of it seems media incited doesn't reflect well either as it only contributes to the rep of yellow journalism that US media will never shake I think. But on the whole the fact that this stuff still happens in 21st century America is telling the world all they need to know about American "equality." Though from my point of view, common sense would dictate not to argue with a Cop...they have guns and are close to the law and lawyers. Best keep your mouth shut and do as they say. But maybe I am too old fashioned.
@  Basukesu : (27 November 2014 - 02:32 AM) Yah she is only two years younger than I am. So yeah she is getting up there in years lol. Reading up her recent bio real quick reveals she has had a few personal downs. Guess that makes for less peppy songs.
@  Jask : (27 November 2014 - 01:26 AM) She got older. She still makes songs, they seem a little less cheerful.
@  Basukesu : (27 November 2014 - 01:02 AM) Found a recent photo, she is not as hot as she once was.
@  Basukesu : (26 November 2014 - 11:44 PM) P I N K Loved her body back in the day and her songs were pretty decent. Now, I dunno what she is up to, is she still HOT? Oo
@  Sky : (26 November 2014 - 05:35 AM) new pass for the legacies plox. -_-
@  Halcyon Dtier : (25 November 2014 - 09:03 PM) you love my pink

@  Basukesu : (25 November 2014 - 05:47 AM) sniff...sniff ><;
@  Jask : (25 November 2014 - 05:38 AM) Yes, we're all playing it and you didn't know because you refuse to buy a Nintendo console.
@  Basukesu : (25 November 2014 - 05:19 AM) Oo There must be a new MH game out that I don't know of that justifies these long stretches of silence! Oo
@  Basukesu : (21 November 2014 - 12:09 AM) To each his own. Since the capability is there I have found I appreciate when a developer makes use of it. Just access to someone you can relate to is nice.
@  Jader7777 : (20 November 2014 - 09:29 AM) idk why people get hung up on character creation. I hate having to sit there and fiddle with sliders knowing I have to look at the mug for the next 20 or more hours. That's why I like Monster Hunter, a bunch of no-nonsense presets.
@  Basukesu : (20 November 2014 - 01:56 AM) Not yet but I am curious about it, if a demo comes out in Japan Ill see how it is. The main roadblock for me now is lack of character creation options a la Dark Souls or Demon Souls.
@  Halcyon Dtier : (19 November 2014 - 10:09 PM) anyone got lords of the fallen? I tried the demo at a games expo, seemed fun
@  Jask : (19 November 2014 - 07:08 PM) The main conversion part is done on a PC, the issue is you need to make a data dump file in-game then patch in the conversion in-game. If PPSSPP can run Freecheat then that could do it.

Made a little video tutorial of how to mine the vocalno fast.   Nothing mind blowing for series vets, but I hope it helps out some new folk ;)

 

Enjoy!

Nice guide. Would you like me to move this to the FAQ section?

A few points I noticed:

  • Leather S is nice because you can gem it up to Gathering+2 and Divine Whim easier. 
  • In area 3 there's another mining spot that sometimes shows up on ground level below the ledge and to the right.
  • Area 5 is actually pretty good for rust/ancient shards. It's one of the areas you'll find the smooth, lumpy rocks to mine, which give them. They only show up on the two higher spots though, where you mined and the rock wall to the right of it leading up to lava. Jumping down to it from 10 for a second check is a good strategy. I actually have more luck with shards from 5 than 8.


If you agree with any of these points but don't want to make another video, you can just add them in with annotations.


If you have any issues with the forum or with other members, please PM me. I'm here to help.

Later on, a mix of G-rank Aoashira with leather S will be boss for gathering (with maybe a +4 charm hunting charm), or given a really nice charrm (like 9 to gathering, or 9 to charm hunting, or something like that), a mix of G-rank Aoashira, Leather S, and the 3 socket piercings for charm hunter, gather 2, hi-speed, and divine whim.

 

In area 3, in my experience, the random mining spot sometimes appears on the ledge itself.

 

The mining spot in area 5 that is near the path leading to area 6 can be skipped, because it doesn't dish out [good] charms, unless of course you would like the extra materials. (as Zentea has already stated in his video!)

 

The second mining spot in area 9, on the really thin strip of bridge, always only gives three mining opportunities! Just saying. ;P

 

G-rank charms, in my experience (and i may have read somewhere...? but don't quote me on that), are mined mostly from areas 8 and 9.

@jask,

 

do with it what you want!  Just wanted something out there for the new kids to get them started.

 

The reason I don't 100% endorse the HR leather set is because you can already gem in gather 2 very easy into the LR set and Divine Whim doesn't seem to make that much difference. I've never had a run where all my Mega pickaxes broke.  That's why I say it's ok if people want to usethe LR set.  

 

But by all means, if you want to use the HR set go ahead!  I just don't want to gather those materials lol, I'm lazy!

 

 

edit:

 

the other spots have been hit and miss for me. I've done at least 200 (about 75 or so of those G rank) volcano runs since the game dropped and 8, 9 and 10 are the best spots imo.   Also, like I said, If you are just shard farming it's highly recommended (by me anyway) to just go to them asap.

 

But, hitting all the spots will allow you to get tons of mats that you can sell off or trade for resource points.  I wrote some stuff down inthe comments/description of the vid on youtube.

 

Glad you guys liked it! thank you very much for watching!
