Metallurgy
From Mabinogi World Wiki
Contents
Description
This skill enables you to collect Ore Fragments from the beach and near the river in Iria; you must be equipped with a Metallurgy Sieve in your right hand which can be purchased from general shops. Various ore fragments are available including Iron, Copper, Silver, Gold, and Mythril, and they can be refined to ingots at Forge in town. This skill has an extremely low chance of discovering Gems whose types vary depending on the weather, time, and location. Gems, repositories of ancient knowledge, can be exchanged with a variety of experience points when they are given to Spirit Weapons. When given to villagers, they elicit various reactions and may be exchanged with gifts. 
Details
 Allows one to sift sand to find Ore Fragments and Gems.
 Requires a Metallurgy Sieve equipped in order to use.
 Metallurgy deposits appear as sparkling areas on the ground. These deposits are located within the beaches of Port Qilla, south of Muyu Desert, southwest of Karu Forest, south and northeast of Connous, north of Cor, as well as Erkey Falls.
 Deposits appear once every minute, or every 40 ingame minutes. However, each location can only have a limited number of deposits present at any time.
 All metallurgy spots resets at 8:00am PST100, causing any sparkling spot to disappear simultaneously in all areas.
 Enabling Mini Effects causes these sparkles to be invisible.
 Every metallurgy attempt will cause the sparkling spot to disappear, regardless of success or failure.
 There are two types of sparkling spots: white and gold.
 Upon success, white produces:
 Iron Ore Fragment (40%)
 Copper Ore Fragment (30%)
 Silver Ore Fragment (10%)
 Gold Ore Fragment (10%)
 Mythril Ore Fragment (10%)
 Upon success, gold produces:
 Iron Ore Fragment (20%)
 Copper Ore Fragment (40%)
 Silver Ore Fragment (10%)
 Gold Ore Fragment (15%)
 Mythril Ore Fragment (15%)
 Metallurgy success rate can be increased using the following skills: Production Mastery and Raining Weather
 Doing Metallurgy on Alban Heruin (Wednesday) can also be utilized to increase your success rate.
 Harvest Song can be used to decrease the time it takes to sift ores, but cannot be used to increase success rate.
 Starting at Rank 9, there is a chance to find two ore fragments from a single deposit. Rank 5 increases the amount to three.
 Gold sparkles only appear in raining weather.
 Failure will always produce an Unknown Ore Fragment.
 Gems appear randomly alongside ore fragments.
 Gems found within the deposit are determined by location and weather; color has no effect.
 Rain Casting has no effect on weather for finding gems.
 Very rarely, multiple gems can be found from a single deposit, with 5 being the max amount.
 Upon success, white produces:
 Partner gathering has no effect on Metallurgy.
 If a player frequently clears out a beach's metallurgy deposits and then changes channels, they will receive a temporary penalty that prevents anything from dropping from a metallurgy spot, regardless of success or failure.
