  • You will need to collect 10 Super Abalone but this will require you to go back and forth or to wait for the nodes to respawn, giving you time to do other things such as collect resources or slay other monsters.
  • Try to follow a sequence when collecting from the Conch Shells so that you can repeat the cycle and collect in an orderly manner.
  • To kill time, you can always explore the map or go hunting for other monsters and searching for materials.
