im mostly asking about stuff like platnium ore, royal soil.. etc

i need a LOT of royal soil, but the only place i know of to get them is just north of the port town on the abbey island. and theres only 2 'spawns' of the soil there. and i was playing for like 6 hours yesterday (yea, no life) and it didnt respawn at all

That stuff seems to respawn anytime I turn the game off and back on.

XD I was wondering the exact same thing and I am at the exact same area you are. I was to upgrade my Iron armor and weapons to Steel but I need a buttload of ore and royal soil. I'm going to see if they reappear every time you restart the game... I don't believe that to be likely though.

The Soil didn't respawn. Checking the ore... Nope. They didn't respawn. So items don't respawn when you turn off your game.

Yeah I need more of that darn Lava Rock that is NW of Alltrade's Abbey. That is by far the slowest respawning item.

I imagine it's based off some sort of timeframe based on what I read on some JP wikis. I know some won't reset for 6 hours, others could take a day.

Would you know if the timeframe can be manipulated by moving the clock in your DS ahead in time?
