Question about mining

Post by Belkar » Sat Jul 04, 2020 7:12 pm

Hi

I am currently in a quest that requires copper ore. I didn't find any yet. I increased the skill to 19 points at the University in the hope of boosting my mining talent but I still suck!

I am mining away at mountain after mountain and I found some stuff like emerald &c, but my skill does not increase at all even after a long time of mining!

It's still 19.0000000 - am I doing something wrong?

Thank you very much for your answers.

It's been awhile since I lvl'd mining but I believe in order to raise the skill you need to mine different types of ores. Sometimes the ore types can be hidden deeper into the mountains. Do you have a grappling hook by chance?

So I had to check the manual to remember how it all worked, your skill probably can't be raised further by strictly mining. Your gonna need a pair of smelting tongs and a brazier to smelt those ores into ingots or other various items. You can have a look here http://euotopia.com/manual/index.php/Mining

Nope, this makes no difference at all - every mountain tile has the same chance depending on your mining skill/race.

the quest that he's referring to (iirc) is the one where he has to go down to Kazadoom. Mining won't work.

could someone please let me in on the answer to Giggles' St.Ives riddle? I am sure I have the right answer but she doesn't react to it :-S

Usually the answer is 2801 not counting the teller. But no way she will accept this :?

Edit: oh my I was stupid I found the correct answer :LAUGHING OUT LOUD LIKE A MORON:
