Final Fantasy XIV has no shortage of content, from godslaying epic sagas to berry quests and just about everything in between. With that comes crafting, and crafting various gear requires reagents like alum to complete the crafting.
Luckily, alum can be found in abundance if you know where to look and if you have the skills. The reagent can be mined at level 20 nodes near Drybone in East Thanalan, meaning players who do not wish to purchase this reagent from the market will need at least a level 20 miner.
Look northeast of Camp Drybone at (18.8, 20) for a good launch spot, and dig west, south, east, then back north. If you run out of nodes, the original node should be mineable again, allowing players to grind large amounts either for consumption or for the market. It is possible to get over 20 Alumen per minute when Quick Gathering is enabled and Gathering Boons are active inside Nodes.
With the natural camouflage of the Disciple of the Land classes, this Alumen grind is not only safe, but easy and effective. Be aware that your harvests are tied to your mining level, watch out for item durability and start mining.
