If you already harvested them recently they will take a bit to respawn. not sure exactly how long though

Do I need the boat to get to the harvest area?

What beach west of Abby? Are you talking about the area where the royal soil is? I can't find this lava lump harvest area neither. I'm about to go to the fishing town to save the girl who prays to the fish god who went missing. HELP!

You shouldn't.

What beach west of Abby? Are you talking about the area where the royal soil is?

The Royal Soil harvest point is directly south of the Alltrades Abbey. To find the Lava Lump harvest node:

1. Leave the Abbey and travel to the coastline north of the Abbey.
2. Head west (left) along the coast until you hit mountains.
3. Follow the mountains around until you reach the node.

The Pointaven Tree is actually between the node and the Abbey.

I go to the harvest point west of Alltrades Abbey and there's nothing at all (no shiny dots) and I haven't harvested there even once

You have to save the Abbot and be able to change classes first. (The boss you fight at the top of the tower will drop a lava lump and then the lava lumps will start spawning.)

I had this issue too, only with Royal Soil. I went to the gather point for the first time and there was nothing there. When I came back later there was a single Royal Soil. When I went to go look for Lava Lump, same deal, nothing in the spot. I haven't gone back to check yet but I suspect it will show up eventually.
