Locations[edit]

Please note that zones can have one or more "guaranteed" (permanent) Rich Platinum Vein (node) locations as well as one or more "possible" (random) Rich Platinum Vein (node) locations. The total of each type ("guaranteed" or "possible") are listed next to the zone name once known and confirmed. Each of the "possible" (random) Rich Platinum 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 Platinum Veins (they appear per character not per account). The locations below are all confirmed locations.
