There doesn't seem to be a discernible pattern to how often you get Miranium and credits from mining/research probes. Additionally, they seem to go at different intervals - sometimes mining will trigger, sometimes the money will trigger, and sometimes the rare materials will trigger. Is there a pattern or timer to this behavior?


It seems like Revenue ticks every 30 minutes, Miranium ticks every 45 minutes, and items tick every 15 minutes. This would explain them sometimes overlapping, and sometimes not.

  • According to this thread, seems like there's some anti-idle functionality that may prevent ticks from happening: gamefaqs.com/boards/701151-xenoblade-chronicles-x/72951245 – Rahat Ahmed Dec 14 '15 at 16:57
  • @RahatAhmed This is correct. It seems as though you can only leave the game run for a max of one hour unattended. I heard someone worked around this by using a fan to keep the gyro on the gamepad constantly in motion, which let them idle indefinitely. Fortunately when you beat the game, idling is no longer necessary. – Seiyria Dec 14 '15 at 17:03
