The picture above is what happens when Jetina cooks. Haha! It’s actually an “Opal” node with hidden Rough Opal inside. Who would have ever thought? 🙂

Rough Opal via Mining
Rough Opal can be gathered with a pickaxe from “Strange Rock” and “Opal” nodes.
There is no gathering level requirement.
“Strange Rock” Nodes
Click to enlarge images. These nodes are visible along the beach north of Port Epheria.
They look like flat stones stacked on top of each other.
Opal nodes are small, dark, and difficult to see. Usually located beside larger rocks.
Rough Opal Location: NW of Sausan Garrison, along the coast.
Rough Opal Location: SE of Kusha, along the coast.
Rough Opal Location: N of Port Epheria, along the coast.
Rough Opal via Worker Nodes
Rough Opal can also be obtained via 4 worker nodes.
- Capotia** (W of Sand Grain Bazaar in Valencia Territory)
- Mediah Shore (SE of Kusha in Mediah Territory)
- Pujiya Canyon (S of Rock Post in Valencia Territory)
- Gavinya Coastal Cliff (NE of Ancado Inner Harbor in Valencia Territory)
** Best choice is Capotia, costing 4 CP, unless you already have nodes near the other nodes purchased.
