Mining

From Medivia Online Wiki


Mining is one of the skills which Medivia offers alongside the likes of Fishing and Cooking. It does not have a direct impact on your gameplay, although it can result in long-term benefits and enjoyment.

Getting Started

There are two ways to begin mining:

  1. Join the The Dwarf Faction and complete the first mission in order to trade with Grazlin, or
  2. Purchase an Advanced Pick off a player

Notes:

  • An advanced pick costs 2,000gp from NPC Grazlin. From players it can be more expensive.
  • In order to have Grazlin forge you any items, you must first complete the first mission of the Dwarven Faction.
  • In order to have Grazlin forge you an epic item, you must complete the entire Dwarven Faction.
  • You can increase your Mining skill by either mining ore from rocks or smelting ores into bars.

 

Mining

As with all other skills, all characters start out with the Mining skill of 10. At this point you will only be able to mine Copper Ore. Keep in mind that if you lack the required skill to mine an ore, your character will continuously "poof" and never succeed in obtaining the ore.  Even with Mining skill 80, you can still "poof" several times on even the simplest ores such as Copper and Silver.

The rarer ores become, the more skill they grant you when mining and smelting. Copper, Silver, and Phenakite, however, all give the same amount.
For a list of known ore locations, click Ores Location.

Pick Ores Harvested Cost
Advanced Pick 1 2,000gp
Modified Pick 1-2 Advanced Pick, 15 Copper Bars, 10 Silver Bars, 8 Phenakite Bars, and 5 Chalcopyrite Bars
Enhanced Pick 1-3 Modified Pick, 10 Vanadinite Bars, 7 Bornite Bars, and 5 Wolframite Bars
Golden Pick 1-5 Enhanced Pick, 5 Gold Bars, 2 Carnotite Bars, and 1 Heliodore Bar
  • You will obtain 1 ore with an advanced pick.
  • You will obtain 1-2 ores with a modified pick.
  • You will obtain 1-3 ores with an enhanced pick.
  • You will obtain 1-5 ores with a gold pick.

 

Smelting

In order to smelt ores into bars you must go to Grazlin's forge in Kazordoon or the forge in Cirone. Use the ores you have collected in intervals of 5 on the smelter to create bars. Depending on how high your mining skill is, you will have a chance to smelt 2 bars out of 5 ores instead of just 1. The way it works is that you need a mining skill level 15 points higher than the skill required to mine the ore, with every extra mining skill on top of that you will gain an extra 2% chance to get 2 bars from smelting. For example: in order to be able to get 2 bars when smelting silver you must first have a mining skill of 30 (15 + 15), then at mining 31 you will have a 2% chance of getting 2 bars when smelting, at mining 35 you will have a 10% chance, at mining 40 it will be a 20% chance and so on. The same applies to smelting any other type of ore.

 

Crafting

If you have completed the first mission of The Dwarf Faction, you will be able to have Grazlin craft certain items out of the bars you give him.

Note: The following table lists the items by using the highest-rated ore in its requirement, starting with Copper as the lowest rated and ending with Heliodor as the highest. This list will not be in an economical order, but depending on what types of bars it requires. For a list of items by their item group (Helmets, Swords, Legs, etc.) go to the Grazlin page.
