Slate falls under Spiritarer’s rock category of mineable materials.

It’s used in crafting, and slate is mined from nodes found on two separate islands in the game: Hoseki Quarry and Mount Toroyama.

Mount Toroyama

The next island is Mount Toroyama, at X: -99, Y: 34. This island is just to the east of Hoseki Quarry, and as such, it also doesn’t require any ship improvements to reach.

Here’s where to find the Slate nodes here:

Step 1: Enter the mountain mine entrance and run to your left.
