  • Adalberta wants to teach you the importance of knowing the land.
  • In recognition of your progress, Adalberta has set you a new task. Wishing to impress upon you the importance of knowing the land, the guildmaster bids you procure ten bone chips. Mine the required quantity beyond the Gate of Nald and deliver them to her.
  • After counting your bone chips, Adalberta explains that knowledge acquired through practical experience is what allows a miner to grow. With your trusty gathering log to guide you, venture forth into the wilderness in search of further riches, and amass a wealth of knowledge in so doing.
※The next miner quest will be available from Adalberta upon reaching level 10.

Remember, that's fifty bone chips I want you to bring. Good luck!

Ah, yes. Precisely fifty bone chips. You've done well, Forename.

No doubt you had trouble tracking these down at first, but each chip you found added to your understanding.

For your efforts, you've come to know where best to search for bone chips. And so it goes for everything else we mine.

Now, in addition to learning where to find materials, you should also make a point of knowing who needs them.

For instance, armorers and blacksmiths are our best customers when it comes to ores, while goldsmiths would struggle to ply their trade if we didn't supply them with gold and gemstones.

Oh, and I mustn't forget the alchemists. Those fellows can never have too much rock salt and cinnabar, and we often rub shoulders with them.

In short: know whence it comes, and whither it goes. To be sure, you still have much and more to learn, and there's no substitute for hard work.

Oh, don't look so glum! Just be thankful you don't have to bleeding memorize all that information─you have a gathering log for such stuff. Make good use of it, and you can't go wrong.

That's all for now. Keep up your efforts, and visit me again when you've spent more time in the wilds, with pickaxe in hand. I'll have another task for you when you've perfected your swing.
For every fifth level you reach as a miner, you will gain the ability to detect higher-level mineral deposits. When this occurs, any new items that are available through gathering will be added to your gathering log.
You can use the Lay of the Land miner action to help you locate the nearest mineral deposits within your skill range.

Exiting Ul'dah from the Gate of Nald, head directly East until you reach the mineral deposits on the cliffside near the Ul'dah Dispatch Yard. If you just stand on the steps and search with a spell, you will be led in the wrong direction. Go to Central Thanalan 23-27 and look at the outcrop of rock, with the trees to your left. Start to the left of the tree, and run behind the tree and onto the top of the rock. Hug the cliff face until the rock ends. Jump down. Follow the lower path back to the tree. Of course, you should mine any deposits you see. I got 3-4 deposits per circuit, and it was a short circuit. The only things available in this circuit are shards and bone chips (and experience, of course).
