    Tin where to find?

    All I have seen is Copper, not one Tin node. In Erid Luin area (sp?), not looking for someone to give their omg secret spot but are there particualr areas where you can go tto get it or is it just random? Tried mining and then going back for respawn.

    Pretty random, but SUPER cheap on the AH if you really need it.

    Tin is the "rare" spawn for copper. There is no special place to get it; just keep mining all the copper you see and eventually some will spawn.

    Re: Tin where to find?

    Bumping, because I just spent what seemed like forever having my prospector farm bronze for my weaponsmith. I tell you, if I'd been longer in the game and had a level60, I'd buy the tin from the AH instead of farming it, since tin is really rare.

    I tried farming in Ered Luin, but wasn't satisfied with the number of spawns in general. I thought that the Marsh area seemed to have closer spawns. Tin and copper share the same spawn sites, so if you can walk in a circle, you can refarm the areas you did a few minutes ago. I started out in Chetwood, then walked around the Marsh for about 5 or 6 turns. I mined the copper, and hoped that the next time I made a pass around the same area, I'd find tin instead.

    I found that walking around the Marsh helped keep me from going nuts, as I could see each lap as a kind of progress.

    The marsh above and chetwood are good locations and try the Shire as well. A lot of nodes spawn there so you will eventually get a bit of tin.

    I look for copper and find a lot of tin. Maybe we are running the same loop?

    Erid Luin kind of sucks for ore IMHO.

    I sent my dwarf metalsmith and my dwarf weaponsmith to Rushock Bog in the Shire. Fgure out the spawn points, and keep harvesting sooner or later the good stuff shows up

    Re: Tin where to find?

    I'm finding the same issue and hope that with the rebalancing act that was done for tier 1 that enouhg consideration was put into thought that maybe, just MAYBE, thing will have to change. The previous ratio of copper to tin for tin bars has obviously changed, and with good reason and it is about time. I would like to think that Turbine is in the process of re-evaluating the need for more tin veins or at least drastically increasing the frequency of rich tin veins,

    If you want to find tin, head to the shire. There is a lot more ore in the shire than in Erid Liun. At least on my server, tin goes for pretty outrageous amounts (very close to mount money by level 21 amounts). Quest heavily in the shire and let no node go unmined. Also, realize that taking horse travel represents a large opportunity cost of not mining. You will be questing in the shire until you outlevel the place by a pretty large amount (I finished up in the shire at 17 or 18) so don't bother taking roads-run through the middle of fields to get resource nodes other players are missing.

    Work on griding out your deeds in the corners of the zone. As another player suggested, the blog has a bunch of ore spots and you can grind your slugs at the same time. However, the fields of the shire do have lots of ore in general-work on completing your quest deeds and you will collect a bunch of ore.

    I feel sorry for any profession who has to use bronze to level. Bronze bars go for outrageous amounts. Finally, make sure you mine all the copper nodes as well. Keep in mind that people pay to level professions so ore will frequently sell for more than bars will-it will vary by the server/day of the week.

    Re: Tin where to find?

    I have seen a lot of user created maps for various things and I think a crafting resource map would be really helpful. Not sure one exists but maybe turbine should look into making one of these so that crafting isn't just about wandering around randomly until you find resources.

    Re: Tin where to find?

    Rushock Bog in the Shire's a good spot. Unfortuantely the change to the way bronze works made tin go from worthless to hawt. Turbine apparently gave little to no thought to ore distribution when they made the change and it seems to be a mistake to not have picked up the tin spawn rate slightly.

    Best place for me in the past was always Ruschok Bog just south of Needlehole for T1 items (wood and ore). Was just running around there this weekend (75 quests in Shire to get traits FTW!) and I noticed a fair amount of Tin nodes.

    On a different note: At least they did bump up the silver spawn areas. Unfortunately, Tin took its place.

    Re: Tin where to find?

    If you do head into Rushock bog with your low level toon, watch out for Mangemaw on the hill near the bridge, He only spawns when level 60's with his quest come into the area, but watch out as a level 60 wolf will find tasty hobbit snacks a nice last meal and I believe his agro calculations will prefer you if you are near.

    I ran by his spot a few times (slug-squasher ftw) and never saw him, tho I did see a couple of L60s hanging around (probably waiting for re-pop). Would be interesting to see what the wolf's aggro radius is when encountering a pre-l35 or so.

    Re: Tin where to find?

    I was trying to gather mats for my freshly created weaponsmith over the weekend. So, I figured Rushock Bog as that has been the best location for me to find tin in the past. By the time I had gathered 100 copper ore I still only had 18 tin.

    Re: Tin where to find?

    I wish Turbine would fix the tin issue myself. I get anywhere from 2-5 copper off of a copper node but only 1 ore from the majority of tin nodes I find. Makes the metalsmith and weaponsmith professions almost unbearable.

    Yes the wolf will go for a lower level character over a level 60, I have seen this happen.

    As for the amount of tin produced per tin node versus amount of copper produced per copper node, it is completely random.

    Used to be tin was ignored so it seemed there was more of it spawning. But now it is highly desired, so it is also being farmed.

    You just gotta be willing to spend the time, and COLLECT THE OTHER ORE TOO! That simple rule seems to be unlearnable by so many, as is seen in Eregion where the tin is ignored. Besides, copper is still selling well, for around 250 silver for a 50 stack.
