"Unspoiled" nodes?

These are node that require a skill to be able to see when they spawn and requires level 50 skill to be able to gather the items. they all are unspoiled

Curse the game for changing the meaning on me! Well at least that clarifies things. Basically the "Notorious Monsters" of Gathering Nodes though, that does make it interesting.

It does with Mahi Mahi tuna. Otherwise, I don't know. Mahi Mahi only appear at a certain time of day. THey don't appear at night, and only during a sunny/cloudy day between 12 and 6.

 

I've been fishing them, and I have not been able to find them at night or in the morning, nor during rainy weather. You can fish them at Oschon's Torch. They're a level 50, single star catch. I reccomend Yumizuno as a bait. (You can have a goldsmith make them, 45+. You'll need to find/buy a blacklip oyster for it!)

I am going to throw this up for anyone who is curious.

 

You need at least 320 perception to get a 1% chance at HQ ore from a unspoiled node. I have mine at 337 with the help of HQ gear melded.

 

Tips for getting HQ ore from unspoiled nodes

 

1) Memorize where the rare ore is on the list. This will prevent you from needing to use "Toil of the Mountaineer". If you want a better chance at HQ ore you will need those 300 GP for Unearth II. When you approch a unspoiled node you will get all your choices as ???. The rare ore you seek will always be in the same spot on the node.

 

2) Kings Yeild seems to be a waste here. Correct me if I am wrong miners but you can not get more than the 3 items per hit even if you use

 

3) Of you do not have a high Gathering Skill you will not get a high % chance of getting even the nq stuff. So cap your gathering skill and use Sharp Vision. Food is very helpful for raising your gathering.

 

4) cap that GP as much as you can (obviously)

 

5) Untested...but solid reason allows for one more attempt...wouldn't hurt to throw that up if you can. Also unsure if Deep Vigor works but I don't see why not. It is a good way to make sure you get at least one HQ hit. So a good way to make sure you get at least one HQ hit is to spend 300 GP on Solid Reason to get that extra hit in. Throwing up Sharp vision I or II in tendem with SOlid Reason and then Deep Vigor = 100% chance at rare ore after a Combo 4. again...untested on Unspoiled node BUT the logic is sound!

 

with a 337 perception I get 1% chance at HQ ore and 335 Gathering I get 88% chance at NQ

 

Not sure if Solid Reason works on Unspoiled nodes...but I'm almost positive Kings Yeild does not.

 

hope this helps!

So the list doesn't mention Black Truffles. The gathering log says they're in Eastern Thanalan. Any idea where they are, and what time they spawn?

 

Edit: Found them. I think it's only a once a day thing though.

 

Eastern Thanalan - Black Truffles - 1:00 PM (Near the Golden Bazaar)

I didn't know that I could even do this. Thanks, Big Red!

I have been reading around and devising good uses for abilities to get the most out of your unspoiled nodes, as well as your gear for melding, and this is insofar what i have come up with.

 

first of all they have a hard cap as of this moment in the game of 90%, so totaly useless to go above 340 gathering, and a 95% for clusters, same gathering level. for those with vanilla hq af, you're gathering is 323, perception 321, and gp 573. if you do not wish to bother with materia, i have found that best course is to simply use your ability to clear all debree, then hq +10% (i'm not using ability names because they are diff for btn and mnr yet do same thing) and gathering up 15% (your gathering will be at 87%), then hit away until you have one shot left and use your bonus ability to make hq 100% for last hit. your hq rate will only be 11% but i find i can still hit hq with that 1-3 times randomly lol.

 

or, you can add in 7 extra gp and 17 gathering from materia, and instead after memorizing which slot your item is in, take a hit to clear debree, then use your hq+30% ability, then whack away until you are 1/6 left, which by now your gp should be back up to 300, use the attempt +1 ability, which will give you enough hits to proc your bonus ability for 100% hq on last hit. your gathering will only be 90% so you are taking more of a gamble, but without spending more to reach a higher threshold on gp you can't do much more without sacrificing something else. 

 

last option would be to go all out, bump up your gp another 50 pts and use gather up +5%, put as much perseption onto your gear in all remainnig slots (as far as i have found every 20 perception = another 1%) and use either gather up food or perception food, and use same tactic as previous with added gather up one.

Well, now that I've got access to unspoiled nodes, I've been using this quite heavily:

I was worried that unspoiled nodes were stupid-rare, but they aren't.. a new node every two in-game hours... easy. Hard part is the amount of travel needed for it.

Water clusters and Grade 3 Thanalan Topsoil at Western Thanalan, 5AM.  Forgot to note which spots.  The topsoil is rare - can only gather one.

 

None of the new mining nodes are up at 1PM.

 

 

(Will update this post as I go :P)
