@  piratefinn : (24 October 2014 - 07:19 PM) I can understand no matchmaking. Vault with no communication would be a NIGHTMARE. destinylfg.net and other sites are good to find people though
@  piratefinn : (24 October 2014 - 07:17 PM) Hmm, I'll go look. I havent done Vault this week.
@  Joker : (24 October 2014 - 06:42 PM) For anyone interested, I'm going to go ahead and post my PSN in the Destiny thread in the video games section.
@  Joker : (24 October 2014 - 06:39 PM) I need friends for the raid and weekly heroic strike missions on Destiny as well. Why on earth Bungie didn't implement a matchmaking system for those playlists is beyond me. They hype Destiny as being this amazing interactive social game, yet you can't find people to friggin' play it with. Well done.

@  S13driftAZ : (23 October 2014 - 07:05 PM) hey im trying to find a cheat.db or code i can paste for MHFU. Do any of you remember one that lets you buy absolutely everything in game from the merchant by the guild?
@  Basukesu : (23 October 2014 - 06:26 AM) Really? Hmm, you talking Warframe? On the PS4 we still on 1.4.8 and our raid still has a day and a half to go before it gets shut down for good. I hope to do the 5 raids left for the weapon but if not then no biggie. I got the mods already and they are by far the best catch, the event weapon is just for collectors purposes as they usually suck ass compared to ones you farm.
@  Mad Hatter : (23 October 2014 - 06:20 AM) And we really need a full team of 6. It /can/ be done with smaller groups but I, personally, don't feel leet enough to carry more than 1/6th of the weight.
@  Mad Hatter : (23 October 2014 - 06:19 AM) I tried the raid a week or so ago with some friends but we weren't able to finish it. And then we weren't all able to reconvene in time to get it done that week. And one member hasn't been on since then, as far as I know.
@  Basukesu : (23 October 2014 - 04:40 AM) But when I go home I must play 5 rounds of Warframe in Phobos! Want the event weapon before the event ends! rawr!
@  Basukesu : (23 October 2014 - 04:40 AM) It is the online cooties. Everyone gets them. You go from A team to B team to C team, all in seconds at times, Other times, you are the S team the heavens smile on you and the chicks line up to see you! Such is life.
@  BizzarreCoyote : (23 October 2014 - 04:24 AM) I've finished Destiny's storyline already, now I'm just putzing around on those raid missions. The ineptitude of some people is astounding...and it's even more shocking when suddenly it's me being the scrub.

@  Mad Hatter : (23 October 2014 - 03:37 AM) You too huh?
@  Halcyon Dtier : (23 October 2014 - 02:02 AM) too busy with Destiny to play D3
@  Halcyon Dtier : (23 October 2014 - 02:02 AM) Grats.
@  Basukesu : (23 October 2014 - 12:27 AM) But I fully beat Diablo II RoS with my trusty crusader yesterday! Now to get it to level 70! Oo And do Rifts!
@  Basukesu : (23 October 2014 - 12:26 AM) It is slow day in the hood! Don't have class again for another 2 hours.

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!
