Once you’ve found your first pickaxe, you’re ready to start delving in caves, quarries, and passes for ore veins.
Ore types are dispersed throughout Terminus based on their local stratum, rather than by intended player levels within a given zone. As a result some areas will be richer in certain gems and ores, with some zones having wholly unique materials.
Starting out a miner will find common ores and gems such as copper, tin, iron, jasper, onyx, quartz, and opal.
As they gain in skill miners will find themselves digging up more rare materials like gold, mithril, platinum, rubies, diamonds, and emeralds. Additionally, some creatures like golems and gargoyles can be mined with the correct skill levels and stronger pickaxes.
Regardless of a miner’s skill level they should be prepared to find lots of coal.
The primary use for mining yields is in crafting recipes for Blacksmiths and Stonemasons, with some overlap for Alchemists and Scribes.
The core of Mining lies in the ore veins and what you can find in them. They can be common rocks or be rare gems.
