Final Fantasy XI Excavating

Excavating in FFXI is a way to obtain bones, shells, and other items that are primarily used by the Boneworking guild. Excavating is accomplished by going to one of the zones listed below, and finding one of the Excavating Points that occur throughout the zone. When an excavating point is targetted, a Pickaxe can be used to try to dig up an item. Once an excavating point is used up, it disappears, and another one appears somewhere else in the zone. In this way the excavating points change randomly in availability throughout the zone. Sometimes the excavating point will give nothing, and often a pickaxe will break while trying to excavate. An excavator can dig at an excavating point multiple times without obtaining any items; the more times a specific point is dug at before it disappears, the greater the chance that the pickaxe used will break.

The items that are dug up with excavating are not known to be based in any way on the weather, moon phase, or anything else; the results seem rather random. The colored stones that can be dug up in some zones are dependant on the game day of the week, however; when those are excavated, the color of the stone is based on the game day of the week.

The items listed below are all those that can potentially be obtained with excavating in FFXI. All items are listed by the zone that they are available from, and by estimated rarity.
