Hey no worries dude, just thought I’d offer in case a T7 hammer was out of your reach as coming here with anything less will just end up driving you crazy.
As for advice/help I may or may not be on at that time, so feel free to message here or on discord when you get on and if I’m here I’ll help (wakenbake#1746)
If i’m not heres some simple tips. Get a complete atlas and a piece of rift in it (this is a necessity). Target the brightest blue dots on the atlas (these are the small clusters of rift, and there are a few remaining). They will most likely be in the 30-35 range, but could be anywhere from 10-50. They are mapped on the atlas more like a surface plant is than a high density gem is, so the centre of the blue dot is exactly where it is (you just need to find the altitude).
Dig to the next dot or if it’s far away, escape to sanctum or regen bomb to get to surface and run there. Usually each cluster will clear the hotspot completely, sometimes a blue haze will remain and it’s up to you if you want to spend the time finding the last piece or 2 scattered in the spot.
Biggest advice, be persistent , patient and don’t get too upset if you don’t find more than 40-50 in an hour. It’s the hardest planet available, it’s been cored out nearly hollow and yet it still has 1000’s of rift just waiting for a new owner!
