Rich Orichalcum Vein

Gathering results[edit]

Locations[edit]

Like any nodes, the location of orichalcum veins changes each time the server resets. The respawn rate for the veins is just under 24 hours.

Rich Orichalcum Vein[edit]

The total number of "possible" vein(s) are listed next to the zone name once known and confirmed. Each of the "possible" (random) Rich Orichalcum Vein locations in a zone are chosen from the list by the server and can change with each map instance. All of the characters on your account can mine the Rich Orichalcum Veins (they appear per character not per account). The locations below are all confirmed locations.

A Rich Orichalcum Vein has a 50% chance to reward x2 Orichalcum Ore per hit for 3 hits. Rich Orichalcum Nodes found in the Heart of Maguuma will yield at least ten hits.

Notes[edit]

The Orichalcum Node that can appear by the Elder Earth Elementals in Scalding Gorge, Draconis Mons cap drop shards and crystals instead of orbs.
  • Node locations are randomly generated for each server.
  • Nodes respawn per character, allowing multiple characters to mine the same node. [1]
    • However, you can only mine the equivalent node once per character per day across all servers. For example, if you mine two Frostgorge nodes on your home server, until reset, you will not find any nodes in Frostgorge on guest server. Similarly, if you mine only one node, when you guest, you will only be able to find one other node to harvest. The only exception to this is the Karka Hive node on Southsun Isle.
  • If forced to disconnect, or log out, having not completely mined a rich vein, there is likely a second rich vein location in the same zone where the player can finish mining from as only one of the nodes can be completely mined from.

Trivia[edit]

  • A permanent Rich Orichalcum Vein located on the upper level of Southsun Cove's Karka Hive was replaced by a normal node on January 28, 2013.
