What node to Invest?
Altinova is the land of mining. Ores usually use for crafting such as Grunil, Utensil, Wagon and also for crates. If you have no interest in these, you may opt-out on this investment but as usual there free 1 lodging from town, at least utilize it to invest for iron ore node. Why Iron Ore? Iron Ore after heating you may use it to craft advance cooking utensil which very profitable in CM. You may find the setup below and modify it based on your preference. Basically, I'm focusing on powders and the ores selling it Central Market or convert to crates in future.

Powder of Time
|9||Altinova --> Altinova Entrance --> Abandoned Iron Mine|
Rough Black Stone
Powder of Darkness
|Omar Lava Cave||
Powder of Crevice
|7||Altinova --> Altinova Entrance --> Stonebeak Shore --> Omar Lava Cave||Powder of Crevice is the basic material for barter. May sell it to Central Market if you not into bartering|
Powder of Flame
|8||Altinova --> Altinova Entrance --> Stonebeak Shore --> Omar Lava Cave --> Mediah Shore||Powder of Flame is the basic material for barter. May sell it to Central Market if you not into bartering|
Total CPs required for setup above
* This excludes CPs invested to the inventory
Personally, I wouldn't recommend investing in the Gorgo Rock Belt for Elder Tree Sap & Pistachio as:
- Elder Tree Sap can be gathered but required energy. Although currently in Central Market is full of Pre-order, the usage of Elder Tree Sap currently used for ship upgrade and furniture crafting
- Pistachio too expensive to invest at Altinova. You may find a cheaper one in Valencia City.
That is for my guide & sharing on node investment in Altinova. Feel free to share your node investment in Altinova for other adventure to refer.
