I have lots of problems mining the ores I need for my 150PW.
I use the Raw Flawless Ruby (RFR), Stygian Blackwater (SB), Apollonite (Ap) and Discordite (Di) to make my components to make my ammo.
During weekdays I spend all my time to find the ores. I used Merlin's list to find mining spots, I have found a few but the ores I really need are almost non-present.
My biggest problem is that (high levels big guild) players come in, zap out the ores they need then leave me with a field full of 'leftovers'. Many times I find myself cleaning out the fields in hope of a respawn but alas, by the time I cleared a field I have to go to bed again.
After 2 weeks of mining with my (very small) guild we have about 200 SB (this one isn't really a problem), about 120 Di but the Ap and RFR are getting cherrypicked so badly it's almost impossible to find. We have about 20-25 of those.
I'm gonna use my Pw this weekend, but with my 6 Archos I think I will have used all the ammoparts in eehh.. 2 hours or so?
My question is: does anyone know spots that are very evry rich in the ores I need?
And second: is there anything to be done against all the cherrypicking?
It's very hard to compete against the big guilds (we have a 7-people guild), and the prices on Market are like 5 million for 1 stack, so 20 million just for a complete set. That is, IF anyone offers it.
Can anyone help us to some good spots?
I found a liiiiittle bit of Ap in Fenris, Nav Point Derelict in the level 8 crystals.
I found some Disco in Glory's Orbit, near Crystal View and Gahaarns Rock.
I found enough SB in Aragoth Prime, Aragoth Resource field 1 and 2.
But the RFR.. and Ap .. almost nothing.
