    In the [Mining] FAQ it states that you need a UOSA enabled account, and read the book Mining for Gems, in order to get the normal gems. What about Crystalline blackrock? The FAQ doesn't mention whether you also need a UOSA account to mine it.

    Nevermind, I found my answer finally. You only get it in Ter Mur thus, only SA enabled accounts can dig it up. Guess I have to upgrade another account.

    It is also stated that you can loot them everywhere from (digged up) ore elementals. Unfortunaly I cant say anything about rates .... I used up my garg pickaxes before that publish went live/before the change was announced. And I even dont know, if you need an sa-enabled acc for looting crystalline blackrock from those elementals.
  3. I went mining in Ter Mur around the outskirts of the city. I dug up an elemental and a door opened in the mountain side and a guard appeared and killed the elemental. Neat graphic thing I haven't ever seen that before.

    You should have went through. Maybe that is the hidden passage to the lands that remain undiscovered. You were the first to discover it and had your chance yet missed it.

  5. Duh Yeah. I thought about that afterwards. :) If it wasn't for me being so time limited I would have gone back and tried it.

    Where exactly is this? Can you post a SS of your map or something? I would like to find this place you speak of.
  7. I will try to make a trip tonight if I have time and get some screen captures.
    It was along this stretch working back toward the steps. For asome reason I couldn't get a single elemental to spawn
  8. It's so weird. One night I get 6 elementals to spawn and see the guard two times and the next time no elementals spawn. I did get 2 crystallline blackrock.
