Hobby in which various items can be harvested by using a pickaxe at a Mining Point. In order to harvest, all you need to do is use your pickaxe in the item list on the Mining Point. You can set the following macro in order to speed up the process.


/item Pickaxe <t>

Pickaxes can break with use, although the Field Tunica Set or Worker Tunica Set can minimize such breakages.

Because ores don't stack, your inventory can become full very quickly. If you have sufficient skill in Smithing or Goldsmithing, bring Fire Crystals along to craft the ores into Ingots. You can also take Wind Crystals and Lightning Crystals to desynth the beastmen items.

  • Due to an update, characters under level 25 cannot procure items from mining in Mount Zhayolm.
  • There are only allowed to be a set number of mining points at one time. If you're in a secluded area and know that there are an abundance of people in another area filled with mining points be patient; they will use up their mining points and the ones near you will spawn.
  • In Adoulin areas there is a limit on the number of attempts you can mine, this is called Mining Fatigue, you gain 1 attempt to mine every 1 minute (real time), with a cap of 37 attempts.
