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.

Some other useful links:

Getting Started

  • To start mining, buy an Advanced Pick from any general goods store for 400 gold.
  • 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.


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.

NOTE: All ores have a random respawn timer, anywhere between 1 second and 3 or 4 hours (possibly longer). It seems higher tier ores may take longer to respawn on average, though they can still respawn very quickly.

  • You will obtain 1-3 ores with an enhanced pick.
  • You will obtain 1-5 ores with a gold pick.
  • You will take 1-5 ores in the first try with a meteorite pick.


In order to smelt ores into bars you must go to Grazlin's forge in Mittenhoff or the forge in Cirone. There is also a Home Forge which can be placed in your house, obtainable at random only from the Mystery Box, purchasable from the Medivia Store.
No mining skill is required to smelt ore, anyone can smelt any bar, making smelting a good way to boost mining at low skills, even if it does give less skill progress than actual mining.
Use the ores you have collected on the smelter to create bars (5 ore = 1 bar). Depending on how high your mining skill is (seems it needs to be AT LEAST as high as the skill to mine it), you will have a chance to smelt 2 bars out of 5 ores instead of just 1, the higher your skill is, the higher chance to get double bars from a certain type of ore.


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.

The Great and Meteorite items, Golden Boots and Golden Mace can only be crafted once you complete The Dwarf Faction.

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.
