[Investigating] Nodes without gathering resources

There are several nodes without their respective gathering subnodes. Please run a check on them as they have vital resources.

Some nodes have requirements before the resource subnodes show up. Sometimes you have to invest in the node, or complete some quests in order to get the node manager to give you a dialogue option to spend energy to get knowledge about the node / subnode.

Goblin cave’s subnodes are there. Have you explored the cave and / or gotten knowledge on it?

Northern quarry’s aren’t showing up for me either, but the node manager has several quests (one of which is unlocked with some amity). Maybe complete these and see if a dialogue option shows up? Otherwise, maybe there’s another NPC at the node who needs to be spoken to?

I’ve tested Norhtern Heidel Quarry on retail, on a fresh character and a pretty fresh account a few weeks ago. Sub-nodes showed up right away.

Omar Lava cave node does not have subnodes on my account. I know others have them. Have tried various solutions(cache, reinstall, even reinstall windows)
I think it is the account itself that is bugged, similar to my stables, which is on my account only AFAIK.

Same for me. In addition i dont see sub nodes in Abandoned iron mine and the nodes for pine tree, one in Serendia shrine and then the one close to hexe.

and since we talk about subnodes i get wrong items from Rhua tree stub - instead of the Trace of forest i get trace of violence.

This is happening to me as well, only with 90% of them being ores nodes. Makes crafting your own items very hard to do, not impossible, but very hard. Now I know that these nodes are obtainable because my husband has the nodes I need on his account, but there is no trade system between 2 characters and he doesnt want to put them on the market for someone else to nab. Is there a work around to getting these nodes for myself? I have tried running around these places for hours, all missions for the areas, amenity conversations, repairing, reinstalling and even tried to make a new account…none of these tries have worked. (major ones include Coastal Cave, Heidel Quarry, Abandoned Iron Mine, Omar Lava Mine, the area next to Coastal Cave and a few others.

We are still uncertain as to what could trigger this issue, we require more data so we can pinpoint the cause of it.

It would be a huge help if everyone who encounters this issue could post in this thread their family name alongside which node is missing sub-nodes. Thanks to those of you who have already done this as well.

Famili name: Tatsujin
Location ID: 175 (Coastal Cave)

No resource nodes (should be iron and copper nodes). I think this is related to knowledge acquired from npcs by spending energy - this bug has been around for a while: npc seems to give the knowledge but takes no energy. Since Coastal Cave is unlocked by this kind of knowledge i believe the nodes are missing because the game didn’t register me acquiring the appropriate knowledge.

Just confirmed - i can’t find Coastal Cave in my knowledge, but the node manager won’t give me the option to learn it in exchange for energy.

I didn’t fully explore my map at the moment. As I will discover more and more nodes, should I update this post or should I write a new post for, in the future, explored nodes?
