    The working miners can be backstabed without sneaking and ignore combat.
    First working Miner seen, then the patroling one with flamethrower (should have his back turned but can be alerted in contrast to the others), then the remaining two working Miners next to him, fast travel back to side of grace afterwards.
    this does not trigger the vulgar militia close by.

      When I was still familiarizing myself with Caelid, I actually started off, farming the little area just south-west from the Smoldering Wall Site of Grace (but stay close to the wall itself), before actually reaching Fort Gael. There's a Redmane Knight, two soldiers, and a dude with a pole-torch type of thing. I was still really low-level and kept dying for a while... but beating up these guys with the Golden Halberd+5, while riding Torrent, netted me a decent amount of runes, some Smithing Stone [4]'s, and the Redmane Knight's gear (armor, shield, weapons, boots, and gloves). Not bad for starters.

        If farming for smithing stone (4) at the ruin-strewn precipice it's not the overlook site you start at. You start at the Ruin-Strewn Precipice site

          The Artist Shack that is being referred to on this page is the one on the east side Lunaria Lake, Not the one in Limgrave that the link takes you to.

            Drops from at least some of the miners in Ruin-Strewn Precipice with decent frequency. Warp to the grace of the same name, turn around and head into the cave (do not use the elevator), first miner on your left will drop it and others in that same hallway will as well. Don't attack the two sleeping miners on the alter it will cause a bunch of militia to show up.

              occasionally dropped by the surcoat wearing soldiers in altus plateau outside the capital, along with grade 5s

                Dropped by the Imp (drops from the ceiling) near the Site of Grace at the Minor Erdtree Catacombs entrance - super easy farm. I've picked up 5 from it.

                  I've been farming these regularly from the two giants west of Deep Siofra Well in the north-east (the path that leads to the giant pot).
                  They also give 1900+ runes a piece, which is a nice bonus.
