Mass of Pure Magic is an ingredient to craft Flawless Magical Black Stone for enhancing Blackstar Gear.

  • +0 to +15: Concentrated Magical Black Stone
  • PRI to PEN: Flawless Magical Black Stone

 

 Blackstar Enhancement:

  • Earlier levels of enhancement show easier Enhancement Chances than yellow grade boss gear, but more difficult in later levels.
  • You still need traditional enhancement mats. (Black Stones, Sharps, Hards)
    • Memory Fragments repair Max Durability.
    • Cron Stones protect DUO+ from downgrading (Optional: you decide if the cost is worth it.)
  • Optional TET to PEN weapon upgrade via Godr-Ayed Weapons.

Mass of Pure Magic from Star’s End Node

Star’s End is a high AP/DP Dangerous Node located West of Calpheon City and North of Grana.

Star's End Location, Node Map

 

Copper obtained via Star's End Node Mass of Pure Magic obtained via Star's End Excavation Node

Mass of Pure Magic can be obtained via the Star’s End Excavation Sub-Node. Proc rate is 100%.

Trace of Violence and Trace of Death is also there, given at 1 each per worker cycle.

The other subnode gives Copper, Melted Copper, and Shattered Star Fragment. Shattered Star Fragment is worth 640 silver or you can exchange 30 for a scroll that gives Skill EXP +5% for 10 minutes.

Star’s End Node Output

With a level 30 Artisan Goblin, it takes about 6 hours to harvest the Star’s End node 1 time. You are guaranteed a Mass of Pure Magic each time. (Drop rate is 100%, which means 4 per day, if you keep your computer running and worker fed.)

 

Star’s End <Node Manager>
You can run to the Star’s End <Node Manager> (Runaway Monster) on low level characters if you stay away from the monsters. Make sure you have your Escape off cooldown, just in case. With a VP, you can invest from a distance, without visiting the <Node Manager>

After you discover Star’s End, you can right click the Star’s End node icon on your map, and a beam of glorious light will shoot down from the sky revealing the awesome wonder of the <Node Manager> location. 🙂

Noobie Character Tip:
If you follow the roadways there, stay away from the tentacles. Their ranged attack will not do damage, but they can hit you if you are in melee range. You can shuffle down into the pit where the floating black star is. Don’t worry, it’s empty. Then go up the steps and you can drop down from above along the stepped rocky cliffs, where the <Node Manager> is located.

Cheapest Route to Stars End Node: Grana 

From Calpheon City:

  1. Gabino Farm – 2 CP
  2. North Kaia Pier – 3 CP
  3. Calpheon Castle Site – 1 CP
  4. Calpheon Castle – 3 CP
  5. Brellin Farm – 2 CP
  6. Calpheon Northwestern Outpost – 3 CP
  7. Star’s End – 3 CP
  8. Star’s End Excavation Sub-node – 1 CP
  9. Star’s End Copper Sub-node (optional) – 1

TOTAL CP: 18 or 19

From Grana:

  1. Lake Flondor – 3 CP
  2. White Wood Forest – 1 CP
  3. Tooth Fairy Forest – 3 CP
  4. Loopy Tree Forest – 2 CP
  5. Ash Forest – 3 CP
  6. Star’s End – 3 CP
  7. Star’s End Excavation Sub-node – 1 CP
  8. Star’s End Copper Sub-node (optional) – 1

TOTAL CP: 16 or 17

The route from Grana is cheaper in Contribution cost, if you use the one free worker space.

This node route would give you access to Tooth Fairy Forest, which gives a valuable item, Trace of Forest. Other sub-nodes along this route produce Noc Ore, and Loopy Tree items. Obtaining these additional sub-nodes would tack on an additional cost of 5 Contribution Points, because 2 extra workers cost 5 CP for additional Lodging in Grana. You would also need extra CP for the additional sub-nodes.

Heidel workers are much cheaper, often 1 or 2 CP per worker. Grana must make some extraordinary talent!!! 🙂

The Heidel route is more expensive and would not give you the option of getting additional goodies from investing in it. Heidel workers are cheap, but it doesn’t do much good, since the route from Heidel has no other resource sub-nodes.

Gathering Mass of Pure Magic

The gathering Life Skill also provides Mass of Pure Magic. The best spots drop 1 per hour. Also choose the ones that are the most profitable.

My favorite resource for seeing what the market is currently doing is bdolytics.com.

For example, at the time of this writing, gathering wild herbs at Behr is one of the most profitable gathering spots that also offers 1 Mass of Pure Magic every hour:

top gathering locations

 

Gathering Wild Herbs Near Behr

Wild Herbs are popular because they give more gathering experience. But they are very beneficial for obtaining rare herbs used in alchemy.

Go to bdolytics to view Wild Herb nodes:

Gathering Rough Stone at Pilgrim’s Haven

Pilgrim’s Haven also offers 1 Mass of Pure Magic every hour.

It is also the best place and easiest place to gather Rough Stone. Mudstone nodes are heaped one on top of another and you barely have to move to gather. Just jump on top of a Mudstone tower and press the R key multiple times.

This location is in the Great Desert of Valencia, so be sure to have Purified Water and Star Anise Tea. Otherwise, it’s safe enough to take even low level characters.

bdolytics.com has an excellent tool that lets you select and view gatherable nodes:

 

Gathering Meat & Blood at Sheep Hill

Sheep Hill is the most famous gathering location for meat and blood. Both give about 1 Mass of Pure Magic per hour. Meat is currently more profitable than blood, but be sure to check bdolytics.com for profitability.
