    Hail all,

    I've found gold ore and iron ore and copper ore ALL over New Britannia, but for the life of me I've yet to see a single silver ore node. Gating taming behind this seems...unwise.

    Any tips where I can start mining for silver would be appreciated.

    TIA!

    Oy.

    In Hilt it is a hidden room towards the end, Verdantis takes slightly higher skill to kill the mobs there, and I believe Elysium is fairly high level as well.

    Yes, there is a slime with zero cooldown respawn timer in hilt, so you will need someone else to keep killing for you

    That room you showed me a few months ago now has slime that seem to ignore all respawn restriction. You tear it to pieces, it will come back before you strike a second node. if you like it out, its cousin will come out of nowhere as well.

    That must have changed lately because it was not many days ago when I showed it to couple of quite new players and we did saw only ghosts in that room. But good to know. I need to test it by my self soon.

    I hit the secret room in hilt for the first time in months yesterday (Sunday). This is the room after the lich and before the ghosts that you have to break down.

    They changed it so its kind of a square with silver spawingin all around.

    2 ghosts are in there, one eventually pulled for the other room but I didnt loot them and their bodies sat there for 2 hours with no respawn.

    Heres the secret I learned.

    For the first one hour the spawn was slow, I only got 100 silver ore. After that one hour, they literally chain spawned once after another, endless mining with no pauses. I puled down another 340ish silver in the next hour. I went afk for 15 mins to eat, came back and the spawn stopped. Its clear that if you keep at it, the silver will continue to chain spawn.

    430 silver in 2 hours was pretty dang nice.

    I did an Elysium run and found that the final silver room had quite slow respawn.

    So I sprinted back to the Kobold room and it was fully spawned already. Then back to the Earth Ellies, and it was 100% spawned in half the time.

    Cool thing is, if you don't kill the Fauns, there's a chance of the respawned mobs to be Fauns too. After 4-5 loops there were only 3 aggro mobs in the Kobold room.

    AFK respawn tactics really blow now. Likely by design.

    Having mobs present felt like it was ramping up the node spawn rate

    Have to test Hilt out one day to compare it vs. Ely/Verdantis.

    @Themo Lock

    Tried Vertas Pass, was very relaxing and I could afk/mine in peace while not being in a dank hole all the time. Very good place when you feel like doing a quick run.
