Ok, I have spent two days now, harvesting, gathering, mining, meeting reds,
doing shard runs, and finding out where I dont want to be at level 16....
......and, I not only havent I found an electrum cluster...I can only
barely find rocks to mine.
Mining skill....35.
Looking everywhere but the right place....
I dont mind working for it, dont get me wrong, but, phhht...this is
not fun anymore.

Called something like "Windwashed sandstone". In Antonica and
something similar in Commonlands. You won't find electrum in the
little newbie yards around the city, you have to go into the "big boy
lands" outside the city. ;)  All the newbie areas only have tier 1
resources, and electrum is tier 2.

Don't look just for rocks. Powerclear. Find an area with a high
density of resource nodes and harvest EVERYTHING. This forces new
nodes to spawn.

Assuming you are Qeynos based the best place I've found at your level
is the north shore of Antonica. Just go to the Oracle Tower and run
along the coast in an eastern direction harvesting everything you see.
Once you reach the mountains simply run back westerly harvesting all
the respawns. Repeat until you get bored or run out of inventory space.

Few people go there so it generally empty and full of nodes. Only
problem I see is that at your level the mobs might be frightening as
this is also the highest level area of Antonica.

You know I think I've only ever seen one person fish. Who ever thought
fishing and RPGs were a good things needs to be shot. Fishing boring
enough in RL why on earth would I want to do it in a RPG? And why do so
many RPGs have fishing elements?!!

Grumble Grumble.
Spent many hours doing this quest.
Many deaths, a few learning experiences.
and
and
I get a corny thing to hang in my house.
Grumble...

Working on gathering resources.
Finally started selling stuff in the market place.
Made like 2 gold.
Is there a list somewhere, or what level a resource is?
What is considered a rare, etc?

Which you can then come and harvest while the rest of are busy clearing the
fields of fungi and shrubs? Nice try! ;-)

Seriously, I did use to do as you suggest, but because I was the only one
doing it, all I got out of it was an overrunning inventory. If you don't
focus on the valuable stuff, somebody else will likely beat you to it. Of
course, if I find an isolated spot during the quiet hours, I do it, but as
soon as I see somebody else running around I change my strategy.

Go fishing, nodes tend to end up being fish, as nobody bothers with them.
Seriously, you can raise your fishing skill super fast, and respawn
boatloads of nodes. I do this every once in a while, clear out 40 or 50
fish nodes, then go out harvesting again.

No more boring than harvesting any other nodes in EQ2...

In EQ1 it was actually kind of nice as something to do while I medded up
back when that was an issue...
