Random Plat. Ores
# Nov 06 2006 at 3:04 AM Rating: Decent
I was mining in palbought or however you spell it, and all i was getting was tin and mythril, not complaining, but i nearlly wet my self when one of those tin ores turned into a Plat. ore when i was sorting out my invintory, then i look again later and find that ive picked up ANOTHER without even mining. no record of it going in or it being traded or anything. SEROUSLY WTF?

The only way I know to get a decent amount of gil is to go mining. It's a job and it sux. However, I learned a few things about it. Best time to go is on or near a new moon. I get bad results on a full moon. I get more platinum ores in Oldton Movopolos then I do in Palborough Mines. In fact, the only time, if I'm really lucky, I get platinum is Palborough is during ice day. Ice day is usually pretty bad for mining any where else except palborough. One thing that really pisses me off is that when I bust my *** mining for 80-120k gil, cheaters somehow end up with a full bazaar full of platinum ore. How? I suspect that it might have something to do with the Newton Movopolos exploit I got a glimpse of on a few FFXI sites. Unfortunately they were pay sites so I have no clue what this exploit is. But the point I'm making is that when I called a GM, the *** told me they have the right to mine as long as they want. Like WTF, I was trying to point out they were getting full loads of platinum within 24 hours. Now I know you cant do that legitly cuz of the dam gimp SE put on mining (if you mine in a spot too long, it reduces getting the good stuff). Plus during a mining trip I have to fight all the gill sellers for spots. It has come to the point now where I dont give a dam, i'm gunna mine that spot if some is there or not. Hey, if someone does it to me, i'm paying em back lol.

Yes, mining sucks, but i wanted to make a heads up that what you are speaking of is not an exploit. Simply put Platinum Ore cons as a Ver Rare mining result everywhere, except Newton, were it is simply Rare. Thus, thye have WAY more chance to get Plat. Ores. The problem with mining in Newton is the level of the mobs there, which will rape u no question unless u have sneak or invis up, not sure which, and the mining points have an extraordinary amount of competition b/w them.

Well, happy mining all ^^

well, yesterday i thought it would be a good idea to start mining seriously, so i buyed some Field Armor and went to Palborough. after that i started to mine several Pebbles and Mythril Ores, and i suddenly mined a Platinum Ore. after that 1 hour later i mined another one, and lastly i found another one 30 or 40 minutes later. when i returned to Bastok, Platinum Ores were selling like 70k-80k! (Fairy Server) omg!, i made nearly 250k! in less than 4 hours!!

If you're mining in Oldton Movalpolos and looking for plats, try mining on Iceday. I always get at least one or two plats everytime I mine on this day compared to other days.

just telling and asking

plat ore used to sell for 25k here in kujata but in the past few weeks the price fell down to 10k.

now i read that it's possible becouse of gardeners ..... now my question is. how do they grow them.

and if there was a price drop before did you ever see it go up again ?

Also found in Oldton

Platinums in Fairy

Man, you guys are lucky. Platinum ores in the Fairy server are 15k. The highest I've seen the price rise (then drop after a month) was 18k in Jeuno >_<. I usually mine about 4 plats a day, but when I think of what the other servers are getting for them, I feel like crap.....

I went through 7 Pickaxes before I got one of these. Not too bad, I think ^^ Now I'm off to look for more...
Not bad...
# Jun 24 2004 at 11:54 AM Rating: Decent
Had my first full day of mining yesterday. I never tried it before because I thought that the profit wasn't worth it. Boy was I wrong. I ended up with 2 platinum, 11 mythril and countless iron ores. This paid for my mining gear and left me with quite a profit.

May have been beginners luck getting those two platinums, but I'm not complaining. Sold for 30k each on Valefor.
# Jun 23 2004 at 3:13 PM Rating: Decent
thing I hate about this mine is that is too ????ing big
im really lucky then...
# Jun 09 2004 at 12:09 PM Rating: Decent
i had never mined before and i bought some pickaxes to get some gravel from the seam for mission 2-3..after i got my gravel i had 2 or so axes left so i saw a mining point and stuck my pickaxe in..never have mined for any thing other than the gravel and i pulled out a platinum ore..i had never seen one so i asked some buddies on the LS to check out the ptice in sandy.they said it sold for 40k..i bout jumped out my lizzard gear since i was lvl 18 or so and that was a lot for me..ended up selling it for 30k in bastok though
Palborough vs Zeruhn
# May 23 2004 at 6:09 PM Rating: Decent
From your experiences which mines give better average results: Palborough or Zeruhn? I get a lot of iron and zinc ore from Zeruhn, but how often do you get these kinds of ores or better in Palborough?
RE: Palborough vs Zeruhn
# May 29 2004 at 9:44 AM Rating: Decent
In my experience, Palborough is much better than Zehrun. It is very rare to get platinum ore, but mithril ore is fairly common, and sells for 1.4k each (on Ifrit). You will also find a good amount of Iron and Zinc ores in Palborough.

Recently, the price of Platinum dropped below 10k on Ifrit... has this happened elsewhere? Does anyone know why?

On Asura, Platinum is only 8k at the moment... My guess is the surge in people growing Platinum Nuggets for gil... More supply drives down the prices of the nuggets, and if the nuggets go down in price, people buy more of them, so Ore has to lower cost to compensate.

Stupid gardeners...
On another note, I'm about to start gardening! =P
The day and the orichalcum ore
# Apr 05 2004 at 2:49 PM Rating: Decent
Hey,I have done about 2 days worth of mining with full field gear (well, the three pieces that add to mining...tunic, gloves, and boots. The total i paid for all of them was around 25k). I have gotten 2 platinum ores, and several mythril. I have noticed though that on days like earth and wind i get barely any mine point spawns, and if i do, they suck.

There really is no specific place to get ore, they are all random. So you could possibly get 4-5 platinum ores in a row (VERY unlikely).

The place where you mine the orichalcum ore is in ifrits cauldron i think. Good luck with that one. The risk is WAY to great for anyone under like level 75 (Even then you get aggroed in certain areas. The bombs in there detect magic, so you have to use prism powders and silent oil). A friend of mine de-leveled four times in one day trying to mine there, but he also made around 400k off that stuff and adaman ore.

There is a URL where you can go to find the mining points but it's Japanese.

What's It worth?
# Apr 03 2004 at 6:32 PM Rating: Decent
I just got my grubbie little newbie hands on my first piece of platinum ore.

After drooling over it's pertyness for a while, I decided to try and sell it, but after having been ripped off of all my Iron Ore (ended up selling it 50 a piece) I decided to ask what it's worth.

Anybody here what can tell me?

Seeing these prices makes me think not selling it for 300 was a good idea...
RE: What's It worth?
# May 23 2004 at 4:17 AM Rating: Decent
Why don't you look at the previous prices on the AH? On Lakshimi it is 21k in bastok.
RE: What's It worth?
# Apr 08 2004 at 3:13 AM Rating: Decent
Well, it'll vary from server to server, but on Phoenix, it goes for just about 20k.
