Mining Guide Table of contents: i. Tools needed ii. How to find teleports/Where to begin iii. Free to play leveling guide iv. Member donation status information v. Gold donation status information vi. Shooting star information/locations vii. Exp boost / additional information For this skill you will need: A pickaxe, and time. To obtain your starting pickaxe speak to Bob, he sells general skilling supplies. He is located on the South-East side of home. Buy an Iron pickaxe, and a Rune pickaxe from him. Next lets head over to the quest tab, select skilling, then mining > Depending on your level, you will want to choose an appropriate location. Here are my suggestions: From levels 1-35|1-77 Here you can mine copper ores, tin ores, and iron ores. 1-15 do copper/tin (an equal amount if you intend on smithing) 15-35|77 mine Iron ores. Levels 35-77 At a slower rate you can switch to mining coal if you choose, ideally mine iron until 77. (pictures needed) Levels 77-80 You can now head to Living rock caverns and begin mining coal from mineral deposits (pictures needed) 80-85|99 Now that you're level 80, you can go all the way to 99 from mining gold mineral deposits in the Living rock cavern. Alternatively, you can switch to runite ores at level 85 (slower xp) (pictures needed) Members only See donation store for more details You now have access to the donator zone, you can begin training at level 1 on blurite rocks. These rocks give an ore at random, and the associated xp rate to that rock. xp/hr varies based on luck of getting ores. This ore never depletes, all you have to do is keep banking. (pictures) Gold Donators As a gold donator you have access to the gold donator zone, here you will find divine rocks that you can mine at level 70 and 85. Which give adamintite ore, and runite ores. These have a limited amount of uses per day, once you cap on how much you can gather, you'll have to wait until reset. You also don't need to visit the Living rock caverns!! You have 2 of each type of mineral deposit here. pictures Shooting Stars Shooting stars will be based on size, for example Size 2, means you must have a minimum of level 20 to begin mining it. This continues up to sizes 1-9, levels 10-90. Example: Rewards will be based on how many star dust you obtain, you can only obtain rewards after the star has been completely mined. A star sprite will appear and you'll be able to claim the rewards To find out when the next star will occur, go to the North West side of home, and view the telescope Here is a list of all of the shooting stars, and their locations, I have found during my time online: Note: will update with pictures and descriptions as they appear in-game. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A Shooting star has just landed in Mining Guild.
