FFXIV Mining Ore Location

FFXIV Mining Ore Location

Aside from killing monsters and defeating celestial beings, Final Fantasy XIV offers other content that gamers can explore. Gathering is one of the main features of the popular MMORPG, which gives players a more peaceful alternative activity to running dungeons. Two of the most prominent gathering contents that adventurers can engage in are Botany and Mining.

Mining is considered one of the most lucrative activities in Final Fantasy. Ores gathered from this activity are typically used for crafting equipment for Paladin, Dark Knight, and Warrior classes. Due to the number of jobs that use heavy armor and steel weapons, the materials gathered from mining are very important to crafters like Blacksmiths.

Whether leveling up their Mining Level or gathering materials to sell, adventurers should consult guides that will help them locate ore veins or large nodes. Knowing where specific ores are found can help miners reduce the time they will use looking for minerals. Here are some of the most commonly known mining locations:
