Tips

As an Adept, you have to visit not one but two mining sites! The fiery Lava Cave can be found south-west from the Crowned Champion’s house, while Nautilus Cave is located near the middle of Tortuga Archipelago.

To warm yourself up, try mining the silver ore deposits around Tortuga Archipelago to get your Port Puerto Silver and any Quality Minty Ore you might be missing.

Next, head for Nautilus Cave and poke around looking for Marine Ore, Purple Stones and (cross your fingers) Amethysts.

If you can sneak past or defeat the Rocksalt Golem towards the east, carry on north east through the cavern to reach the Forgotten Tunnel . At the very end, you’ll find the Pickaxed Golem guarding the Water Wingstone.

No golem; no trouble!

You can try sneaking past the Pickaxed Golem to mine the Water Wingstone, but defeating it may be easier. There’s nothing worse than reducing the wingstone to a fraction of its HP bar and then the golem notices you and interrupts you.

Once you’re done, it’s time to turn the heat up a notch by excavating the Lava Cave on Mt. Snowpeak. Here, you can dig for Magma Ore and hopefully a Ruby or three.

Note : You can improve your chances of finding rare items such as Amethysts and Rubies by increasing your Luck stat.

When you get to the end, beat the Lava Golem to a pulp and continue north to the Dragon Scab . This beast of a rock is resilient and requires both a good pickaxe and good stats.

If you need to, purchase a Silver Pickaxe from the ore shop in the Port Puerto Marina. Also check to see if your Strength stat is high, then your Focus and Vitality.

Luckily, at this point you’ve got the Terra Former special skill, so use your Ore Breaker on the sweet spot to build up your skill gauge and unleash a Terra Former or two to show the Dragon Scab who’s boss.
