I am not able to find information in wiki about this. Does the mining tool we use change what we are able to mine? Is it just my level and place I am? I have become so addicted to mining I will keep doing it and not even going into the city.

The tool doesn't change what you are able to mine. There are two different types of locations that require either your main hand or off hand tool, but the locations all have set items you can mine.

Change no. The higher level tools do give you better stats thereby allowing you to more reliably mine higher level nodes that have different set items on them... That's something to consider.

Basically, each mining location is 4 points (You know this). Each of the four points has its own set of items, and that set won't change. There are, however, two types of locations. There's locations where you'll use your pickaxe (gold on your map) and locations where you'll use your sledgehammer (blue on your map). Because they require different tools, you'll never use your pickaxe on a blue point and you'll never use a sledgehammer on a gold point. In short -- just make sure you have both tools equipped, and you'll be able to hit all the points.

Your gathering log also lists everything you're able to mine, breaks it down into gold and blue locations, and tells where to find things.

Also perception will determine if you see all the things you can mine or not, from what I read.

While I'm not aware of this being accurate, I don't know that's it's not.

What i >do< know is that perception determines your percentage for obtaining HQ items. Currently, the cap is 15% natively. Later on, some nodes give a +5% HQ chance if your perception skill is high enough. Furthermore, you have an ability (100GP) that grants and additional 10%, and one for 300GP that grants an additional 30%.

It's false. Once you open the relevant page in your mining log (e.g. once you hit 21, you can see the 21-25 page in the log), you are able to access those nodes. When you first hit a node, everything will be "unknown," with a 25% success chance. Once you successfully hit an unknown node, you get the 1st time exp bonus + regular exp, and the item becomes viewable, along with it's "normal" gathering stats.

The only determination to what you can "see" is level (unless we are talking 50+ gathering - different story). If you are 25, you can only see up to & including level 25 nodes. Once you ding 26, you can now see level 30 nodes.

Also, you have an ability that shows you the minimum perception needed to potentially HQ an item. This starts @ 1% if you just make the requirement, up to a native max of 15%, as Lebarge said. With node bonus + 300GP ability, you could have up to a 50% HQ chance on an individual node.
