Mining is a skill about mining and using ores, minerals. oil and other materials. It's the first skill in the game and requires nothing to unlock.

Leveling Edit

Player doesn't get mining XP from mining, but uses the Pickaxe to convert ores into mining XP at a cost of Stardust. Socketing a gem into the pickaxe allows player use high level ores to level and reduce the stardust needed.

The mining level is needed as requirement for Quests and to operate Mining machines. It's also required for miners to mine high tier Stardust Crystal, and increase the Essence drop rate from drinking Essence Potion and Super Essence Potion. The amount of Moonstone loot from the Moon and Mars Rock from Mars also being affected by mining level.

Mining level scales with ores like Stone, Marble, Quartz and Promethium in Treasure Chest.

Mining Ores Edit

Mining machinery Edit

At the start, player can buy miners in Game shop as the first digger. Gradually, high level machines will be crafted and used. The ore from mining is used to sell to the shop for money, to level up with pickaxe or to make bars. The maximum purchase for each tier is ten.

Generally, higher tier machines just mine ores slightly better than lower, but not for the oil they use. Thus running more lower machines generates more money than high ones.

Rocket is a special machine that requires 1,000,000 oil to launch to the moon to collect minerals. Player has chance to get Moonstone, Stardust and a rare Shooting Star from the moon loot.

Oil supply Edit

To run high level machines, the player needs oil. Oil can be obtained from crafted oil supply items, Oil Potion, Super Oil Potion or Oil Barrel from Monster Loot. The first oil supply item is Handheld Oil Pump for 110 coins at the Game shop.

Tips Edit

  • It's highly recommended to get Blue Pickaxe Orb as soon as possible (for standard players), or wait until getting it before level up (for hardcore players), since it reduces the ores by half when leveling.
  • According to the above mining rate table, running one Excavator is probably better than two Giant Drill.
  • Also, one Giant Excavator is better than running three Excavator in term of Promethium only, in case when one is short of promethium and willing sacrifice other ores for it.
