Mining Mining

Mining is a skill used for obtaining ores, gems and oil. Mining Machinery or the Pickaxe are the primary method to obtain ores. Mining XP can be obtained by converting ores with the Pickaxe. Stardust Prisms can also be obtained from mining after completing the hard mining achievements.

Ores are the primary resource obtained from the mining skill, and can be sold, used to craft Bars, or used to obtain mining XP. Socketing a Gem into the Pickaxe reduces the amount of stardust needed, but does not change the amount of ores needed.

Oil is an important resource for Mining which is used to operate all Mining Machinery. It is obtained by Oil Wells and the Oil Factory and can be increased by upgrading the Oil Wells. Only a finite amount of oil can be stored at once, which can be increased by upgrading the Oil Silo.

In the beginning, regular player will have a chance to receive Stone Stone.png at a rate of 1/10 (10%), Copper Ore Copper.png at a rate of 1/19 (5.26%) and Iron Ore Iron.png at a rate of 1/3600 (0.027%) every second. The rates and the ores obtained may change upon having the Mining Machinery as per below:

In addition to ores, miners will begin to find gems after the player finishes the Gem Seeker quest. Gems can be sold for coins or used to upgrade the effect of tools. The amount of Mining Machinery being used does not affect the chance of receiving gems.

GreyGeode.png Geodes

Geodes are rare resources that may be obtained randomly from Mining after obtaining the Chisel from Gathering within the Desert Mines. Finding rarer geodes also required a higher Mining level as well as better gem slotted onto the Chisel.

Every Geode may be cracked with a different chance to receive new Minerals, which may be used to craft Rings for Combat. If not for Crafting Rings, the player may convert the Minerals to free Mining XP.

Upgrading the Chisel with Gems will also allow the player to obtain higher-level geodes.

These are the possible Geodes which may be obtained from Mining:
