Description

Spurred by the discovery of darksteel, the Zeruhn Mines were recently carved through the large rock formation on the eastern edge of Bastok Mines. Due to the high market value of darksteel ore, the Zeruhn Mines is quickly becoming one of Bastok's main sources of income.

A lone Galka stands watch over a heavy gate in the mine's main passageway. Beyond this gate lies Korroloka Tunnel, a popular training ground for up-and-coming adventurers.

Points of Interest

  • The Rise of the Zilart expansion is required to move past the gate at H-7 to Korroloka Tunnel.
  • Zoning in from the boat in Palborough Mines grants a cutscene for the quest Blade of Darkness.
  • New players can get experience points in this zone.
  • Players here can mine Darksteel Ore, which usually sells for nice profits on the auction house.
  • Several Bastok nation quests involve this zone.

Map Sellers & Mining

Here's the full info for those still wondering
where you can purchase the Zeruhn Mine map =)

In Port Bastok (J-7) Seller is Rex.
In Bastok Markets (H-9) Seller is Karine.

And a short lesson on how to dig in the mines:

You will need to buy pickaxes from Boytz's Knickknacks (H-7) from Boytz in the area Bastok Mines. DO NOT JUST BUY ONE! Buy at least one stack. I usually go in with three stacks. Pickaxes break very easily, so if you only have a few, you will have to leave to buy more. What you want to do is buy enough so your inventory can be full of ores instead of having to leave the mines prematurely because you didn't buy enough of the pickaxes.

Head to the Zeruhn Mines. Once in there, tab around for mining points. When you get one, select pickaxes from your item menu. After you mine the first one, try to tab onto the mining point again. Most of the time a mining point will have more than one ore in it, so keep trying for that point until you can't tab on it anymore.

As for the field outfit, I do have it for my miner. Has it helped me? I'd say yes. I mined more iron ores with it on, and even a darksteel, versus from earlier when I didn't have the outfit and I didn't mine any darksteel. Though darksteel is very rare, and if you don't have the money, don't spend it on the outfit. Just try to get the darksteel without it.

For any more mining info, look it up in the forums. Or ask me, and I'll try to help.

Hope that helps!
Happy mining!

Well then you should probably look up Palborough Mines instead of Zeruhn Mines then, yes? ^^ Interesting that whole idea of sorting things into the correct category. :D

BTW, it's in the Eastern half of North Gustaberg all the way in the end of the canyon up in the 'NE corner'.

You cannot get to Palborough Mines from Zeruhn Mines, but by riding the boat upstairs in P. Mines you can shortcut to here from there. It's a good shortcut back to Bastok from P. Mines.

P.S.: read the whole **** page before you post... ALL of this was mentioned below... :<

hey guys i agree, you will rarely find darksteel ores here, i have spent a total of 10 hours in the mines and only found 2. I do not have any of the mining gear, so really don't waste the money on it, i found that if you mine slowly you get more out of a spot. By mining slowely i mean do not rush through the windows to select your axe and mine withit, go through that process much slower. i have tried both ways, and it may just be cooincidence, but i went in with 12 pickaxes mined fast and came out with 3 iron, 4 zinc, 1 silver 3 copper and 2 tin for a total of 13 "ores". I tried with 13 pickaxes mining slowly and i got 5 copper 4 tin, 3 silver, 4 zinc, 4 iron, 2 stacks of pebbles and a darksleel for a total of 23 "ores" Good luck to everyone who tries to mine.

true true bad dst drops lol, HOWEVER if you gi there and mine on darksday you WILL have a better chance at getting darksteel ^^ ive gotten 1 over 4 hours on normal days, then after almost one hour of mining on darksday i collected 3 ores.... probably alot of luck also, and the fact that only 3 other people were there, but still a better chance, hope this helps the rookies ^.^

Ok then...lets get this clear. The name of the map for the area on the "other" side of the locked gate in the Zerhun mines is "Korolaka".

I still haven't been able to find that map yet.

Can someone do me a favour and give me what grid and/or vendor I could buy that from in Bastok? I haven't had any luck as of yet finding it.

Cheers

PS... Is that the map that you can buy for 3000 gil?

I have mined hundreds of time with full mining gear in these mines and can tell you that darksteel is very hard to get here. Anyone who tells you otherwise has not mined alot and has got lucky finding an ore or two. It is not unusual to mine 200 other ores/pebbles before finding a darksteel here to give you some perspective.

Unfortunately, you can not enter Palborough Mines through Zeruhn Mines. There is a one-way boat from the third floor of Palborough Mines back to Zeruhn Mines.

The entrance to Palborough Mines is in the north-west corner of North Gustaberg.

A common problem. The Rise of the Zilart expansion has to be installed and it has to be registered (I believe you can register it after logging in to POL and then starting FFXI.) NOTE: I believe one update may have unregistered Rise of the Zilart. My friend swore up and down that he registered it and couldn't get into the KokaKola tunnel, but when he tried to register it again, it worked and he could get in.

The mines also connect to the Korolaka Tunnel. The entrance to the tunnel can be found on the far side of the locked gate. Once you've finished your very first mission, talk to the hume at the gate, and he'll offer to let you through.

The Zeruhn Mines are perhaps the safest and most reliable place for Miners to dig for ore. Of all the monsters that infest this Mine, only one is aggressive, the Giant Amoeba. Luckily, the blob is far too simple to wander far from the room it is found in, and thus is easy to avoid.

The very first Bastok mission has players delve into this area, and several quests either originate or have sections based in the zone.

Zehrun/S.Gustaberg are also some of the best zones in the game to level a below lvl8 job.

The mobs in Zehrun aren't difficult to anyone except maybe a BLM. Also a great source of earth/wind/water crystals, flint stones, bat wings and the occasional ores (copper, zinc, silver) from levels 1-4.

The mines aren't too crowded with people killing mobs on Siren, so I love it here for those levels.
