An Unidentified Molepig Den, one of the possible sample nodes.

Unidentified Samples are a unique Gathering mechanic in The Three Brothers The Three Brothers DLC, in the Caldera region.

Overview[]

There are three types of Unidentified Sample nodes you can find in the Caldera region:

There are many potential locations where these nodes spawn, and there are four random rotations which determine which nodes will be active at any one time.

The random rotation changes every two in-game days, however the samples themselves are subject to Area Reset and still require 7 days spent outside of the scene to replenish their resource. A quick way to reset scenes is by speaking to Dorion Dumas and offering to help build for a week.

In addition to the random rotations, all nodes have 10 random positions (for exterior nodes) or 5 random positions (for dungeon nodes) where they may spawn. This means that realistically you will have a rough idea at best of where you should expect to find them, but over time you will become familiar with common places to look.

Identifying[]

Samples can be identified by Evangeline Vallier in New Sirocco after the Sirocco quest line has begun.

You have an equal chance of receiving any of the available 6 outcomes from each sample.

Rotations[]

There are four random rotations which determine where the nodes will spawn, and the rotation will change every 2 days - though it is possible to get the same rotation twice in a row.

The maps for the exterior regions show the potential spawns for each rotation, but keep in mind only one of each ID (the number) for each node can be active at a time.

Random Node[]

There is 1 of each sample which has a random spawn position in the Caldera Misc. Dungeons, and this is independent of which rotation you are on. It will pick a random spawn position once every few days.
