@  Jask : (31 October 2014 - 07:11 AM) Can't spare the money right now, and I'd need to find people to play with.
@  Halcyon Dtier : (31 October 2014 - 05:11 AM) Jask, try out X-Wing miniature game, its crack. $40 for the starter box, no painting or glueing etc required.

@  Jask : (30 October 2014 - 07:49 AM) I was at a friend's place for a horror tabletop game and we suddenly heard yelling and fireworks, for a fair amount of time.
@  Tuddle : (30 October 2014 - 07:05 AM) lvl World series champions, oh yeh :d
@  Halcyon Dtier : (30 October 2014 - 03:57 AM) lvl 29 in destiny, oh yeh
@  Basukesu : (28 October 2014 - 03:20 AM) Hmm, I just noticed that Safari on Yosemite actually looks at the background color of the webpage you are browsing and is mildly transparent if it is other than white thus spilling the color slightly into the window frame. Oo >< Damn you apple ! Little touches all over, but they still slowed down my Painter 12 >< GRRR!
@  BizzarreCoyote : (28 October 2014 - 03:08 AM) Then again, I need 6 people to even attempt this thing with in the first place. So yeah.
@  Basukesu : (28 October 2014 - 03:07 AM) It is obvious! (>' ')>`@ Cookie for you!
@  Basukesu : (28 October 2014 - 03:07 AM) Testosterone Pill Kick!
@  Mad Hatter : (28 October 2014 - 03:02 AM) You kids and your acronyms. Don't tell me; I'll figure it out.
@  BizzarreCoyote : (28 October 2014 - 01:04 AM) Just reading about the number of ways this Raid can TPK is ridiculous
@  Mad Hatter : (28 October 2014 - 12:14 AM) A good void weapon helps heaps.
@  BizzarreCoyote : (27 October 2014 - 11:46 PM) Still haven't even attempted the Vault of Glass. Not even kinda confident in my own abilities, or the abilities of my potential group.
@  Mad Hatter : (27 October 2014 - 09:47 PM) I hope to one day finish it. Preferably before the next raid comes out. Extra preferably before the first DLC drops.
@  Halcyon Dtier : (27 October 2014 - 09:46 PM) Destiny Raids are my bitch
@  Joker : (27 October 2014 - 11:08 AM) No doubt it's going to be getting lots of DLC and updates in order to remedy some of the problems but November has some pretty big games coming out that could knock Destiny's player pool down. I've heard rumblings from loads of players that say a horde mode would be great for Destiny and I have to agree. A survey showed that MOST people played PvE in the game anyway (explains why Bungie's latest update is all about PVP) so I think a horde mode would be great.
@  Joker : (27 October 2014 - 11:05 AM) Yeah, Destiny is a fun game to play but, for me at least, it's probably going to be taking a back-seat come November because there's a few games coming out that I'm REALLY looking forward to. I never followed Destiny when it was being hyped up so when I jumped on the bandwagon just as the game released, I never felt that sense of disappointment or anger when the game didn't deliver on what everyone thought it would. Still, I'm glad I picked it up because I do enjoy playing it and at the end of the day that's what matters most.

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!
