Yup!  Compass, Camel, and nearest Anise node so you can function at night.

Hopefully after I've had a little more time to explore I can work on a "What you need to know about Valencia" type guide - what nodes do what and what recipes they go into, that sort of thing.  Will take awhile to learn it myself, though.  I didn't play Korea or Russia so this is all new to me, too.  ^_^

You're very welcome, hun.  Glad you found it helpful!

Took me 3 hours earlier to connect Sand grain Bazaar to Cresent Shrine. Mostly because the node managers and knowledge is in such awkward/annoying places.

Really nice video.

I didnt know about the compass. I was just wondering, in the video you dont show what you actually can do with the compass. I have been getting around the desert quite easy without it so far (using maps that I found and just pointing my char in the right direction). What does the compass add to this? I will probably do the quest myself today, but might be nice to add this info here.

Extra tip: Use your cat to scout for gathering locations, when it finds something, look on the big map, you will see where you are as there is a beam of light there.

The compass lets you use your map in the desert.  It only lasts 3 days, though, so if you're getting around fine without it, it may not be worth your time to pursue it.  To "use" it you just have to have it in your bag - it's at 3:55.

 

And yeah, I have my cat's notices turned off because he really annoys me.  Unless I'm actually gathering something, I keep him off.
