# Mining

## Description

Improves the success rate and decreases the gather time when mining ore in Barri Dungeon, Cuilin Stones in Sliab Cuilin, and Sulfur Ore in Zardine with a Pickaxe. |

## Details

- Passively increases the success rate of mining, reduces the time required to mine, and grants a chance to gather one additional item.
- Equip a Pickaxe and click on a deposit to gather resources.
- Base collecting time is 5.0 seconds.
- Base mining success rate is 50% for Ore, Stone Spirit Rock, Flint, and Sulfur deposits, 66% for Cuilin deposits, and 60% for Sulfur Golems.

### Location and Probability

The probability of receiving any given type of ore varies by its location and source:

- In Barri Dungeon, Solea, and Connous Underground Maze, the type of Ore received is determined by fixed odds.
- 74.07% chance of receiving an Iron Ore.
- 14.82% chance of receiving a Copper Ore.
- 7.41% chance of receiving a Silver Ore.
- 3.70% chance of receiving a Gold Ore.

- In Sliab Cuilin, the type of Cuilin stone received is determined by fixed odds.
- 58.30% chance of receiving a Low-Grade Cuilin Stone
- 25.00% chance of receiving a Common Cuilin Stone
- 16.70% chance of receiving a Earth Crystal

- In Sliab Cuilin (Shadow), the type of Cuilin stone received is determined by fixed odds.
- 41.24% chance of receiving a Low-Grade Cuilin Stone
- 30.93% chance of receiving a Common Cuilin Stone
- 9.28% chance of receiving a Fine Cuilin Stone
- 3.09% chance of receiving a Finest Cuilin Stone
- 15.46% chance of receiving a Earth Crystal

- Mythril Ore is obtained from Barri Dungeon's Mythril Mine's Mythril Ore Deposits, which has a 100% finding rate. It can also be found in Barri Advanced, Solea and Ant Hell.
- Mythril Ore deposits appear much less frequently than regular ore deposits in the caves.
- The Mythril Mine can only be accessed during the Generation 2 Quest Mythril Armor.

- From Sulfur Ore deposits, there is a:
- 90.91% chance of receiving a Sulfur Ore.
- 9.09% chance of receiving a Fossil.

- From Sulfur Golems, there is a:
- 50.00% chance of receiving a Sulfur Ore.
- 50.00% chance of receiving a Fossil.

- Flint can be obtained by mining the Volcanic Rocks around Raspa Volcano during Rainy Weather. It has a 100% chance of rewarding Flint.
- Spirit Fossils are found in the deposits in Barri Spirit Fossil Dungeon, which also have a chance to produce Iron.

### Ore Deposits

- A standard ore deposit contains 7 collections.
- Ore deposits in Barri Spirit Fossil only have 5 collections.

- Ore deposits in Barri Dungeon, Solea, and Ant Hell do not regenerate. Once a deposit is depleted, you must find a new deposit.
- Ore deposits are found two ways:
- In Barri Dungeon, every difficulty level.
- Ore Deposits appear in groups of 4, either in a room (usually empty, sometimes with pre-spawns and rarely with chests) or in a hallway.
- The first floor of Barri dungeon
**always**has two sets of Ore Deposits (8 deposits in total) sequentially just before the last room before the stairs, which is**always**an orb room. - The presence and number of Ore Deposit groups on subsequent floors is entirely random. There can be as many as four groups on a single floor, or none.

- By exploring in the Solea Caves or Connous Underground Maze.
- Use an L-Rod to uncover Ore Deposits in the open rooms of Solea or the wider paths in Ant Hell.
- There are usually 2 to 5 deposits in each large room of Solea.

- In Barri Dungeon, every difficulty level.
- Copper, Silver, and Gold Upgrades for the Pickaxe increases the chance of receiving that Ore.
- Copper Upgrade increases gathering of Copper by 20%, creating an 17.77% chance of receiving Copper Ore.
- Silver Upgrade increases gathering of Silver by 30%, creating a 9.62% chance of receiving Silver Ore.
- Gold Upgrade increases gathering of Gold by 40%, creating a 5.18% chance of receiving Gold Ore.
