@  Halcyon Dtier : (17 December 2014 - 11:18 PM) We were doing VoG. Joker hadn't done it before. I've done up to the 3rd event in Crota's End.
@  Champz : (17 December 2014 - 12:22 PM) that is all

@  Halcyon Dtier : (16 December 2014 - 02:13 AM) Hope you enjoyed the Destiny raid last night, Joker.
@  Jask : (16 December 2014 - 01:40 AM) The 3U demo came out about a month before launch. Timing is pretty important with demos. The lack of a release date is pretty odd, though.
@  Jader7777 : (16 December 2014 - 12:50 AM) The demo was fully translated and we've even seen fully(?) translated builds of the game! Surely back end stuff like printing and server operations don't take this long!!
@  Jader7777 : (16 December 2014 - 12:49 AM) Come oooon Capcom give me a MH4 release date

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!
