@  Jask : (28 August 2014 - 08:21 AM) I think I have a fairly good grasp of how the monster stamina system in MH works.
@  Mad Hatter : (28 August 2014 - 07:33 AM) I can't put my finger on when exactly. I'm fairly bad at keeping track of the date as it is, much less remembering past dates. But I'd say probably around 2-2.5 weeks ago.
@  Jask : (28 August 2014 - 06:16 AM) Not just this round of them, but the first time we experienced it. Could have sworn it happened earlier than last week.
@  BizzarreCoyote : (28 August 2014 - 06:13 AM) I can't be sure, but I want to say around the 21st
@  Jask : (28 August 2014 - 06:08 AM) When did these resets start happening? Anyone remember the date?
@  Mad Hatter : (28 August 2014 - 05:13 AM) One of the enemies that made leveling as a mage slightly more difficult.
@  Mad Hatter : (28 August 2014 - 05:12 AM) They are a pain to take out unless you can really hammer their heart.
@  Mad Hatter : (28 August 2014 - 05:11 AM) lol
@  Jask : (28 August 2014 - 05:08 AM) Welp, I'm not ready to take on a Drake in Dragon's Dogma. I took out I think two of it's five or so health bars, then died horriblu.
@  Mad Hatter : (28 August 2014 - 04:48 AM) The Tekken half is what concerns me. I'd much rather they went with a SSB style fighting game than a Tekken style one. But then, I have completely different ideas for what I'd like out of a pokemon fighting game than they do, probably.
@  Jask : (28 August 2014 - 02:45 AM) Will be*
Hopefully it gets a console release and makes its way over. Currently planned as an arcade game in Japan.
@  17dragonboy : (28 August 2014 - 02:22 AM) Also, a pokemon fighting game would be cool I think.
@  17dragonboy : (28 August 2014 - 02:19 AM) @Coyote: You might have some appretiation for this: /watch?v=HOBfOxDPcQI
@  17dragonboy : (27 August 2014 - 11:23 PM) Coyote's comment was on "future" Minegarde.
@  Mad Hatter : (27 August 2014 - 07:12 PM) Nope. The comment right under Coyote's is Jay El saying "Hello Minegarde!" yesterday in the wee hours of the morning.
@  Mad Hatter : (27 August 2014 - 06:50 PM) Yeah, I can't see that comment. Maybe if I refresh again...
@  Jask : (27 August 2014 - 06:19 PM) Not really, Hatter, I said that Pokken looks interesting and has pretty graphics, then Coyote's comment.
@  Mad Hatter : (27 August 2014 - 05:04 PM) And I can't even see the conversation because the shoutbox, I assume, it still messed up.
@  Mad Hatter : (27 August 2014 - 05:00 PM) Sounds like I missed a conversation about Pokken.
@  BizzarreCoyote : (27 August 2014 - 04:00 PM) I agree that Pokken looks amazing. It's just a shame that I'm garbage at fighting games

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 ;)

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.

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!





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!
