How the skill works

Life Forge - Mining00:33

Life Forge - Mining

A player mining Dunestone in the Desert Area northeast of Armisitin.

To mine, players must equip a pickaxe. Afterwards, they need to find a resource node that has ore available (such as the nodes shown in the table above). A mining node's health will decrease based on what tier the equipped tool is. The higher the tier, the faster the player depletes the resource. A notice will appear over the node saying "Mined it!" when the player obtains the ore, and as such, will receive the appropriate ore for that node. Players must then wait for the node to restore its resources before mining again.
