After making calculations based on the items that all of you testers have gathered during the Alpha Test and Beta Test phases 1-3, there was a concern that there would be an excess supply of gathered items. As gathering is directly tied to the economy of the game, the development team decided to make adjustments to reduce the number of gathering attempts in order to stabilize the economy.
2) Greetings gatherers!
I figured I would drop in here quickly to supplement your hard data.
An Active Help window for "Unspoiled Locations" is displayed when acquiring the below skills:
Botanist: Truth of Forests (Level 46)
Miner: Truth of Mountains (Level 46)
It is also shown during the level 50 class quest for botanist and miner.
Since this Active Help window is not automatically displayed if you already have a botanist or miner above level 46, I’d like to let you know what these handy abilities do in case you were unaware.
While under the effects of Truth of Forests or Truth of Mountains, once you enter into an area with an "Unspoiled Location" it will be displayed on your minimap. Compared to regular gathering points their appearance is rare, but that’s not to say that when they appear is random though – as clearly you have all found out! (Good job at becoming one with the land!)
By getting a grasp of the laws of nature for each "Unspoiled Location" you'll be able to predict when these points appear, so keep at it gatherers!
