@  konata1550 : (22 October 2014 - 04:58 PM) hello, i want to ask something
@  Halcyon Dtier : (22 October 2014 - 03:38 AM) My work here is done.
@  Xero : (22 October 2014 - 02:35 AM) okay. is it weird that I actually can't find my wallet..?
@  Halcyon Dtier : (21 October 2014 - 11:17 PM) I'm in yo pants, grabbing yo......wallet.
@  Basukesu : (20 October 2014 - 11:04 PM) Yah I was highly skeptical as well. Played the demo on PS3 and held off cause I knew the expo was around the corner. But just from the PS3 demo alone it felt like the Diablo game it should've been from the start. That and the no online requirement makes Hardcore more stable so that is a huge plus for me. Having so much fun right now, the only complaint I have is that a lot of the content is face roll if you make a Crusader lol. Stuff just melts before their eyes lol.
@  Mad Hatter : (20 October 2014 - 08:44 PM) Hard to believe Diablo 3 was so mediocre not so long ago. Sounds like they really turned it around.
@  Basukesu : (20 October 2014 - 06:33 AM) Got Diablo 3 UEE for PS4 and Wow! Such an improvement over w/e the hell PCs got! >< The new loot system has effectively glued by ass to the couch! >< DAMN YOU BLIZZARD! The shinies did it to me again ; ;

I am all late to the bandwagon but having fun, and the best part is I can solo it and not be constantly dependent on Bnet! BooYah! What were we talking about?
@  Mad Hatter : (20 October 2014 - 03:35 AM) I too stand at a reasonable vertical angle.
@  Tuddle : (20 October 2014 - 03:31 AM) All on my gameboy, of course, because I am a respectably upstanding citizen.
@  Tuddle : (20 October 2014 - 03:31 AM) I've been playing more gameboy games nowadays than anything else.
@  iHena : (17 October 2014 - 09:52 AM) 2hu
@  The Random Bard : (17 October 2014 - 04:23 AM) Gotta go back and rediscover them! Then we can compare Metroid finish times and become the best speedrunners in the history of forever.
@  Basukesu : (17 October 2014 - 02:59 AM) Along with a few castlevania games too...now that I think of it I have some fun games there I never touch anymore.

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!
