These mines,nestled in the Northeastern corner of North Gustaberg, are still in relatively good shape -- much of the machinery even still functions. Yet the tunnels and shafts have become infested with beastmen and monsters. The Mines themselves are divided up into three "floors", each progressively more difficult than the last. On the top floor is an unusual shrine with a Burning Circle that seems to lead somewhere else.

If fact, it's not really connected. Palborough mines has a one way exit to Zeruhn Mines from the third floor, around H-8. But beware! Zi'Ghi Boneeater occasionally can be seen in that area. Guarding the boat to Zeruhn mines, as well, are two Quadav's. To actually get to Palborough Mines, go out of Bastok and go to North Gustaberg (The closest entrance to Bastok). Look at your map, and it should show Palborough Mines are your map. I'm on Pandemonium if you need help getting there. /tell xhuli.

Having farmed here when I was at level 30 for hours, I know alot about this place.

I know some really dirty tricks that you used to be able to do.

For the WAR AF boots quest there is a tough quad NM that you pop at the top floor. Pre MPK patch you could use him to kill anyone who entered the mines regardless of level.

My evil friend used to get kicks out of MPK'ing people who were going for KSNM30 and BCNMs.

He used to pop the NM, voke it, then run like **** to the zone on the first floor. He would drop done the old machine thing, to the creek, and rush to the first floor without being hit once. He would then wait at the zone until most of the quads got close.

After that, he would zone it. This was before MPK patch so none of them de poped.

It was ugly.. Anyone who entered would be aggroed by the NM and the 30-40 quads around it would link and kill the player in a matter of seconds.

You had no chance of surviving either. The lag would make it very difficult to cast spells and you were some how bound while the quads attacked you.

Post MPK patch none of that stuff can be done anymore, Yes, I know most don't like MPK'ing, but I used to get alot of laughs out of it.

Don't get me wrong, I wasn't the one killing people. I just watched.

Also, another interesting thing I found out. If you shoot a rabbit across that creek nexto to the elevator, and then enter the elevator, the train will be transported to to elevator. Works with quads too.

So I just spent more then an hour on the top floor of the mines looking to get lucky with some Platinum ore. However, as chance would have it I honestly did not see ONE SINGLE mining point. Has anyone ever had an experience like that? You can still get Platinum ores here right?

Getting Keys

I dunno about all of you, but I find it's really easy to get chest kes here. when i went to get key for Kazham airpass quest, myself (25WAR/12MNK) and my friend (50PLD/25WAR) got it in about a half hour. Just last night, i went to help one of my friends get their key, and we got 3 to drop in half an hour ^^ so, all in all, it was good.

On a side note, i can't seem to find a chest for that key i got last night, can anyone give me a map that has where they spawn?

EDIT: Found one, got my Flame Boomerange ^^. now using it to skill up throwing for when I can use Shuriukens as NIN.

The Old Toolbox is a key item used for a quest in Bastok called The Elevenths Hour. In order to get the quest, you must have completed the previous quest Hearts of Mythril. The NPC for both of these quests (I forget his name) is in the Bat's Lair Inn in Bastok Mines. After you get the Old Toolbox, speak to him, then speak to the Galka in the last room on the left on the catwalk above the Mines area. You will get a cutscene, complete the quest, receive a Small Sword and a cool title.

Palborough is a great place to farm below lvl 30, IF you can catch it when it's not being farmed by half of Bastok. I've helped people get keys many times, and I've always had NP with RDM/THF combo (I suggest you don't try soloing your key below level 26), with THF at 15 of course. I have the best luck getting keys across the river at the furthest E. bridge (across the whole map from the Shrine). You can get it at the other points, too, but I've seen an NM quadav spawn at the egg chamber area and give a lvl 41 MNK a good fight. Working the easternmost area, I can usually get a key within an hour to an hour and a half (solo) with THF subbed at 15.
Side note about the refiner: I have killed beaucoup quadavs in huge trains at the foot of the refiner many times while farming and I've yet to see an NM. If there is one, it takes a special trigger to spawn it.

Wow. I was extremely lucky in all of my key findings. I was able to get each key on the first drop.I soloed each different mob, I reccomend doing this (especially as a monk) because I find rare items drop more frequently while soloing or in a party of 2 or 3.

Not too many rare items up there, if you can get one of the NM's and really only Zi'Ghi' Boneater is common there. The hardest quads drop some brass armor, the keys to low-decent treasure, and feetich peices galore! I guess thats good at lower levels.
P.S. Zi'Ghi Boneater's greatsword, Braveheart, is worth 30-45k on Cerberus and has very good stats for those who want to DD and have good accuaracy and Critical Hits.

Easy way to get key

Guys... I don't know how to tell you this... but all these horror stories make me wince. Because its very easy to get the key. Get a map, and proceed towards the Burning Circle. The Old Quadav that is closest to the Burning Circle drops keys almost every kill. So as long as you can get a map, finding akey, for your friend or yourself... is very easy. By far, this is the easiest key to get. Otherwise, you're gonna be searching for a while...

actually, i had more problems getting this key than any of the others. It took me about an hour to actually get to where the quadav were that drop the keys, to start killing them and to actually get a key. and the sad thing is that i had a lvl 65MNK and a 60 something WHM helping me.

**NOTE: got Giddeus key on first kill off of Yagudo Votary and the Fort Ghelsba key took about 10 minutes after getting to the orc's spawning points.

Since your talking about key experiences, i'll tell mine. First night i was looking for the keys, i found a party that needed them too, so i joined in and we sat around near Ghelshaba and look for the keys. 2 hours go by, no key. We kill 1 last quadov, and we get it. HURRAY. so we all head out and about half way someone gets aggro'd. the party destroys the quadov following her, and bam, two more keys. -_- after that we disband and i run to the mines and log. i log back in the next day and someone invites me to help get the key. i accept, and its the same party O_o. we made no plans to meet there, so i waas just lucky i guess. i wounder around trying to find them for like an hour and as soon as we get up there, they get a key, and i die on top of a chest. they decide to use the key to open the chest and we go find a few more keys after the 1k+ gil we got from the chest. after all the keys are i decide "hey im here. i'll go find that toolbox." so i run and find it and head out to the boat where they're at. i get aggro'd soi bind and run thinking i can jump on the boat. i get there and i see them taking off waveing goodbye. great. so i wait for the boat to come back, and as soon as its in sight, lag like you would not belive. i turn around and there are 40+ quadov comeing at me. i have time to jump on the boat before it is boarded and completly filled with them. safe to say, i got a much faster way back to bastok then through zeruhn......

Ok, im sure you have heard these stories about the kazham airship pass quest before but i gota add mine too because its fairly funny now that my rage has subsided after 4 or so hours. Was serching around for the last few days on lvl 3, couldnt find where the heck the copper quads were... i dont have a map so i kept getting lost. X_X; oh well, but i finaly figured out where they were and went charging headlong in... bad move, two old quadavs and one copper... thankfully they all had their backs turned, so i slowly walk away. waited a few mineuts trying to figure out how to draw them one at a time when a small group runs by and picks up the copper and one old, so i grab the other old and proceide to beat him down, after a 200tp red lotus and my 2 hour i beat him with roughly 60 health left. HE WAS EASY PREY WTF!!! so i heal and proceid a lil further. i see a copper, same situation but i have some tp left over from my last fight so i target him and hit ranged attack... no sooner had i pulled out my boomerang than a brass quad spawened about two feet infront and to the left at me with an evil grin in his eyes... so i ran, very quickly, in the general direction of the exit (still no map), dragging every single quadave on lvl 3 with me... i get down to somewhere on the second lvl when it finaly happens... dead end. so i try and run the gauntlet, of course to no avail and end up dying at the hands of roughly 18 quadav. im not exactly sure on the number because its hard to figure out how many of them were inside other ones. but the best i could figure was 18+... i hate this place. i realy realy do.

What level is good enough to mine in palborough without getting aggro?

Can't stress out how much I hate palborough and the whole bastokan area, the scenery is so dull and it always takes a LONG LONG time to get the kazham key from the Quadavs you need to fight here. Heh love kicking the Dark Dragon's **** though. That is tons of fun. Can't wait to mine here. I make about 10k an hour mining in Zehrun's and yeah it's definitely a lot more iron ore drops since having the field gear. Can't say it increased the rate of darksteel drops though as I have still only mined 2 so far in the past 2 weeks I picked up mining :-/.

Mining in Palborough
# Jul 29 2004 at 12:01 PM Rating: Decent
51 posts
Actually, if you don't mind not getting the occasional rare ore as often as other mines, Palborough can be pretty easy money. Last night I mined for about an hour and a half and made about 30K off of the other stuff (mostly mythrils and irons). Add in the fact that there are also several easy NMs that spawn here (even one that drops a 15K greatsword) and you can make some money in no time.

I myself have never heard the rumor about Field Gear hampering your chances of getting Platinum ores. That just sounds like pure speculation made by someone who had a bad mining excursion while wearing it. Some people just get extremely lucky. I wear the field gear everytime I go and let me tell you, the gear is the reason I make any money off of this mine. Otherwise I'd be stuck getting nothing but copper, tin, and zinc ores. With it on, I mined 9 mythril, 7 iron, 5 zinc, and 5 silver and only lost 14 pickaxes out of a total of 36.

Granted the mine points are a little too far apart, but as there's still money to be made in this mine. I prefer to mine in it because I don't get any aggro at all in there. I try to mine in Gusgen but even at lvl 43 I still get chased around. It's also nice because it's right next to Bastok, so you can mine your heart out and then run straight to Bastok to sell your wares (and they sell FAST in Bastok). Zeruhn Mines is also right next to it (which I've heard is better for getting iron ores) so if you get sick of Palborough, just go next door. Mining is half luck.

Pal is a horrible place to mine. I've heard rumors of field gear hampering your ability to get Plat drops, but otherwise, the points are faaar too spread out (Cant emphasize this enough) and the chance of a Plat drop is incredibly rare.

Yhogott or zerhun will give MUCH better money for your time invested...and to the 14 monk with all the luck, I call BS.

I got 2 platinum ores, 10 mythril ores, 3 silver ores, 11 iron ores, and i don't know how many zinc, tin and copper in Pal with 2 stacks of axes using field gear today(threw all my copper). I then went to Yughott and left within an hour...was getting nothing but iron at best. Just my $0.02.

The mythril seams are for the Rank 3 Mission for people not from Bastok. You mine the gravel from it and then take it to be processed in the refiner. From this you get mythril powder/dust which is used to complete the Bastok section of the Mission. Nothing else can be mined from the mythril seams. Look for Mining Points if you want to get ores. The locations of the points can be found here.

If you go into the room with the elevevator, on the opposite side of where you get on it, I found one in the corner by the river. Hope this helps.

Mine gravel and platium ore

I went to Palborough as the adventurer I am. With $ and £ in my eyes I just kept digging up that mine gravel....
When it seemed not to stop, I realised this was way to good to be true. And unfortunately it was.
I am a lvl 14 monk, so i got aggroed all the time in there. Besides I had my fieldgear on, so I had no defense or attack at all. I managed to find one miningpoint before I got killed, and would you belive.... I got a platinum ore and a mythril ore ++.
I guess I was extreme lucky, but as soon as I get a couple of more levels, I am heading back :)

PS, I got a dark ore on my second or third MP i Zehrun as well :)

With all the ore,(That sold almost faster than I could put it up in AH) and those rare ores, I spent two lucurative hours in Bastok before I went Windy to look for Spiny Spipi.

When your mining they usually have about 2 or 3 mps open at a time i think. It really matters how big the spot is too.

Well as I was helping a friend get his Palborough key for his Khazam Airship quest, I thought it would be cool to get a key for myself. Especially since I would just see the chest sitting there.

No wonder, 1500 gil? Thats not very much considering it can take a person multiple hours to find this key, especially since there are usually other higher level people hanging around. I am curious to see how much the Flame Boomerang is worth at the AH.

Remember you must hunt south of the bridges that cross the waterways. I found the area around the Right Bridge to be less populated with other players than the area around the Left Bridge. Made it easier to kill Quadavs without being bothered.

It is for the 2-3 mission for Windhurst and San D'oria, if you choose to go to Bastok first for the missions. You use the machine to refine mine gravel into mythril sand.

The Copper, Brass & Old Quadav drop the Key and spawn on 3rd floor south part of map anywhere across river. Best way to do it is to get anyone to help that is level 23+ and just spread out across the whole river area killing all that you see and lot until everyone who needs a key gets one. Easy way to get a party of six lvl 25's each a key within an hour. Doesn't matter what jobs you are or anything, just kill as many as you can. Bringing a level 50 (or whatever) friend makes it even faster.
Been there, Done that.

It would be even more helpful if you had a lvl 15+ THF with you for Treasure Hunter so the key will drop much faster.

Actually, the Mine Scorpions on the third floor drop keys, too. That's where I got mine for the Kazham airship pass.

You can find this map in Port Bostok. Talk to the little kid, Rex, inside one of the tents that sells imports. I think you can get it for less than 1k, I dont' remember too clearly though.

In Palborough Mines you can find the following ores:
Pebble: Easy
Copper Ore: Easy
Tin Ore: Easy
Zinc Ore: Easy
Iron Ore: Hard
Silver Ore: Hard
Mythril Ore: Hard
Platinum Ore: Hard

Expect alot of pickaxes to break, even if you have a full field suit.
