Zeruhn Mines

(Entry Submitted By: Arksniper of the Titan Server)

Zone: Zeruhn Mines

Items needed: Signet and Pickaxes

Target: Worms and Bats

Ok the way that this works is it uses "M" in H.E.L.M. and a low level area to a lower players advantage. When starting off in Bastok in any job one thing i reccomend is doing the quests in the area to gain faim (lowers pickaxe cost). Then grab a stack of pickaxes and head off to the mines. I used this area from levle 1-7 and it worked fairly well. Bats drop wind crystles, wings and Zeruhn Soot. Crystles can be saved or sold for crafting needs wings you can use in a Sand O'ria quest 2 for 200 gil(repeatable), and soot can be traded 3 for 150 gil(repeatable) right outside of the mines to Gerbaum @(F-. Worms drop copper ore, zinc ore, silver ore, flint stones (craft or quest them in bastok markets Aquillina K-9 4 for 100 gil). Mineing drops: Iron Ore Common (sell at the AH or ask a smither to craft for you) Copper Ore Uncommon (Sell or synth) Pebble Uncommon (Sell to NPC 1g only) Zinc Ore Rare (AH or use with copper to make brass ingots) Silver Ore Rare (AH or Synth) Tin Ore Rare (AH or Synth) Snapping Mole Rare (Sells to npcs for about 300+ gil) Darksteel Ore Rare (this is the money maker you can AH these bad boys for 10k on some servers maybe even more) I also suggest in investing in the level 1 gear that improves mineing results. This may not be the fastest way to do it but it can make alot of money in the long run.

Just wanted to point this out (even though it's been my way of farming and this sort of hurts ; ;) Darksteel isn't really the money maker since it's so uncommon. The quick sales of a correctly priced zinc or iron ore are what make this profitable. You can fill and inventory with zinc and iron ores, head back to bastok, set up shop, go eat, come back, and sometimes be sold out already. Things go even faster if you advertise your bazaar.

As a person that has done this quite a bit in his lower-level days, I would say the main fault of mining here is the amount of items you get and how fast everything sells. I can mine an entire inventory and spend days selling it for maybe 20k of profit. To keep my slots open, I carry some fire crystals to make ingots. Iron and Zinc ores are the money maker on my server; darksteel is great, but you only get 1 every other trip or so.
