Mining is a skill used for obtaining Ores, Gems and Sand. Miners or machinery need to be used to obtain ores. The Shovel is required to get Sand.

Leveling[edit | edit source]

Players don't get mining XP from mining, but use the Pickaxe to fuse ores and stardust and convert them into Mining XP. Socketing a Gem into the pickaxe reduce the amount of stardust needed.

Mining Machinery[edit | edit source]

At the start, the player get the Miner from the Quest "Let the Mining Begin" as the first digger. Gradually, higher level machines will be available to craft and use. The Ore from mining can be used to sell to the shop for Coins.

Generally, higher tier machines just mine ores slightly better than lower tier ones, but this is not scaled to the amount of oil being used.
