FFXIV Mining Timed Node Guide

A comprehensive guide covering all of FFXIV's non-collectable timed mining nodes.

Timed gathering nodes are more common than new miners and botanists might expect, with many of Final Fantasy XIV's most valuable raw materials only being available at one node at set times of day.

The aim of this guide is simply to present all of the timed mining nodes to peruse and take note of, should you not want to use a timer website. However, it does not go over gathering collectibles. We go over that in our FFXIV mining collectibles guide.

All times are based on Eorzean Time (ET). You can view Eorzean Time simultaneously with real-time in-game in the UI by going to the Character Configuration menu, choosing UI Settings, and then HUD.

Once checked, both your local time and Eorzean time will show on your HUD.

Set Alarms!

You'll want to get cozy with the game's alarm function to take advantage of these mining nodes, which can be accessed by entering /alarm into the text box and hitting Enter in-game.

FFXIV A Realm Reborn Mining Timed Nodes

The first timed nodes are level 50, but you should be able to attempt to gather them at level 46.

These nodes spawn once per day and are up for three hours.

That's it for all the non-collectible timed nodes for miners in Final Fantasy XIV. We have a very similar guide for botany timed nodes, as well as separate guides for botany collectible spawns and mining collectible spawns.

Ashley is pretty lost in most things, but not the FFXIV smol life. Oh yeah, there's someone impersonating me. Trust me: I didn't email you.
