Mining is a talent that allows the player gather ores and gems, used in armor and Harmony crafting.

Gaining experience[]

Experience may be gained when the player successfully mines for ores. Experience gain is directly proportional to amount of ores mined.

You can mine at mining spots which are marked with pickaxe on minimap. In mining spot you can use: /scan to scan for ore veins. Each ore will have a distinct color to them. Then you go over vein and use: /mine

You can also use scan and mining by putting dowsing crystal (scanning device) and pickaxe in skillbar. Dowsing Crystal and all pickaxes can be purchased from Resonance.

Pickaxe is not needed for mining. Instead, it increases mining speed, with higher level pickaxes increasing it more.


All mining skills listed below are passive skills which improve scanning and mining quantity.
