Silver Ore - going nuts - help a man not go crazyFollow

Hi all,

I have decided to really work hard on Goldsmith, but I need silver ore, and tons of it.

I am a level 21 miner. From what I have read, at 21 I get to see level 25 nods. All I see is quarrys. Quarrys dont have ORES, they only have other stuff.

I read that silver ore comes from lvl 25 nods. I have once again gone pretty much everywhere using my search area, but never any silver ores. Any idea's?

Cheers

The gathering log tells you exactly where to find certain materials that you're currently able to mine. Just open it up and have a look.

Silver is found near quarry mine camp. Just go there and use lay of the land.

Just to clarify, you're going to want to be close to level 25 to effectively dig up silver ore. I attempted at 21, and the base % chance was around 48%. So you can either use the 250 GP move and then wait for it to recharge every time, or come back when you're more like 24-25. I'd reccommend the latter. I don't have flawless gear, so it might help a bit, but I think 21 is still too low.

Also, in terms of the gathering log, I haven't gone that far in launch yet, but in the crafting log in P3, the next tier only opens up when you're within 3 levels of it. So at 16 GSM, I could see up to level 19 recipes. Once I hit 18, the next page opened up - as it started @ 21.

If silver ore is in the 26 - 30 page, you may need to be 23 to see it in the gathering log. Another argument for leveling gathering + crafting simultaneously. Smiley: smile

With gathering the nodes become visible and are added to the log at -4 levels in respect to the node. L25 nodes with silver ore are available at 21.
