    The first step in gathering Island Spectrine is to make sure you’re Rank 13 in your Island Sanctuary. This rank will require 44000 Island Experience with it you’ll unlock the (current) final four gatherable resources: Island Shale, Island Spectrine, Island Marble, and Island Mythril Ore.

    You’ll also need to unlock the Steel Hammer, an upgraded sledgehammer, and the unlock upgrade, the Mammet-sized Spelunking Tools. You’ll need the following materials for the Mammet-size Spelunking tools, but they’re fairly common, so you’ll likely have plenty:

    • 10x Island Palm Log
    • 10x Island Iron Ore
    • 10x Island Quartz
    • 10x Island Resin
    • 10x Island Wood Opal

    You’ll also need the following items for the Steel Hammer:

    • 3x Island Log
    • 3x Island Iron Ore
    • 3x Island Wood Opal
    • 4x Island Coal
