I've done the Baggi quest (Lost in Blue) several times, hoping to mine Isisium; yet I have found none.

I need it for a Vodyanoy Hammer and a Buster Blade.

Is there some "secret" I do not know about?

Also, yes, I mine in the caves

There is no secret from what I know of...its mostly luck.
The best you can do is a Great Baggi quest and mine there while doing so, as Great Baggi can give ores as rewards at the end of the quest.
I do believe the white rocks give more rare materials such as Isisium though, so keep an eye out for them.
I think that if you are High Rank to initiate a HR 40 Tundra quest and have the Explorer skill, you can mine the white rock in the secret area for higher chances of rarer ores. Its next to the pile of bones where you gather DragonBone Relics.

Yeah, mostly this is a case of luck. I personally would get the Tundra Gathering Tour first, as then you can bring Leather armour to mine and not worry about hunting anything.

Luck doesn't have any effect on the ores you get on a mining run just on quest rewards.

I highly recommend what he said leather armor helps a lot on mining runs prevents pick axes from breaking as fast. It also increases the amount of times you can gather in one spot. Also the longer you remain in a gathering quest the more times mining nodes spawn which is a godsend compared to past games where you had to go on multiple runs because of the set limit you can gather in one run.

The point Lao was making is that Isisium is in the Cold Stones quest rewards. So by increasing Luck, better chances of getting Isisium in the quest rewards.


The quest reward odds for Isisium are slightly better for Leader of the Icepack and Harvest Tour: Tundra. (23% vs 20% for Cold Stones)

So it appears that the best quest choice for Isisium mining is likely Harvest Tour: Tundra. Gathering skills and Luck skills will help.


I do remember that this was one of the harder ores to find, and anytime I wanted to forge or upgrade a weapon or a piece of armor, I'd have to go mine.

Actually, the Harvest Tours give little rewards IIRC. You'd be better off with the Bloodstone quests, as you'll get them through mining by accident anyway.

And on a related note: Best place to get Machalite, Carbalite and Bathycite Ores regularly? I'm sick of mining everywhere and barely finding any.

For bathycite i'm most regularly finding it under water in the flooded forest, areas 5 and 6, and sometimes 3.
Machalite has a higher spawn rate from the rock in area 12 of deserted island.
But carbalite...?

Spoiler:
 

Bathycite is found is also found only in High Rank, not Low Rank.
Carbalite is found in High Rank Deserted Isle and Volcano. Although there is much greater chance of getting Carbalite in the Volcano zones.

I agree with you Emilette but wouldn't achieving 5* require better weapons, meaning that you would have to get Isisium at a slower rate, and then a faster rate. That's just how I see it. I'm on 3* quests though so I need to wait. The Gobul is such a pain. I almost did it on a previous file until it was erased by my idiotic brother. I'm now doing the Qurupeco so I still need to do some more quests. I'll think I'll go a slower rate this time, just to enhance my gear.

I do not know why, but not many people mention that you can do the free hunt in Tundra at any stage. Seriously, just go to the Tavern and talk to the girl who gives guild quests, then select the free hunt in the Tundra quest. Simple as that. I just realized that today. I CAN FINALLY GET ISISIUM AND SO CAN YOU! :D
