So HELM is Harvesting, Excavation, Logging, and Mining. It is one of the most lucrative activities you can do on Nasomi, especially as a new player. Spawn points are limited to 4-6 per zone and can be wide scanned on Nasomi. Below Ill include a map of each zone with the ones active on nasomi circled. Once 3 items have been gathered from one point, the point instantly respawns at any point in zone, even the one just gathered. Ideal HELM strategy includes bringing enough players to quickly cover points and maximizing items gathered.

Players may not HELM in the same zone on two characters. However, since much of HELM involves sitting in one spot, it's perfect for a second character while your first farms, crafts, etc.


Ifrit's Cauldron


The blue circles inside the messier black circles are the 6 active points in this zone. A group of 6 people can each make 100k-300k an hour here. Right now, maybe more.
This is the best zone for Orichalcum ore.

Maze of Shakhrami

There are 6 points found in Maze of Shakhrami. This zone can be effectively covered by as little as two people and is safe for anyone 50+. Even solo is not that bad. This is one of the two zones for elemental ores. The more points you cover, the more money you make, so taking turns between being the person up top covering 5 points vs the person below covering the 1 or pooling ores helps. The 3 in the bottom are so close that 4 people are usually the most effective.

Attohwa Chasm

The other place to get elemental ores. This zone has 5 points, able to be covered by 3 people. Two in the north, two in the middle, one in the south. However, the two in the middle are dangerously close to a Corse during the night, while a Bomb will spawn on the southern one. This zone also produces HQ scorpion shells, which are a bit of extra gil when there's a bonecrafter skilling to 100.

If anyone wants to add to this, feel free. Been awhile since I have done many of these zones, and I am not going to redo all of them very quickly.

If you want word to get out about you being a complete asshole on a low-population server, by all means, go for it. Just don't complain when people don't invite you to party.
