The deeper you go into the mine, the better ores you can find. The mine has 120 levels, battling your way through all of them requires a good pickaxe and weapon.
General Information About The Mine
In a new game you will receive a message on the fifth day that the gravel, that previously blocked the entrance of the mine, is gone. It is located north of the small lake after you have crossed the wooden bridge. Now you can enter the mine and go to level 1 by clicking on the ladder.
In the mines you will find stones, coal and ores that you need for crafting. To go down one level you have to mine stones and kill monsters. This reveals a ladder that leads down to the next level (sometimes the ladder is also immediately visible).
The chance that you will uncover a ladder through a monster kill is 15%. When mining stones, the basic chance of a ladder is 2%. But other factors also come into play: The fewer stones there are on the level, the greater the chance of finding a ladder.
Which Ore Is When To Find?
You can find the valuable ores deeper in the mine. The important ores for upgrading your tools in a list:
- Copper ore - from level 1
- Iron ore - from level 40
- Gold ore - from level 80
- Iridium Ore - from level 100
You can find everything you need to know about upgrading your tools in this guide:
Beware Of The Monsters!
There are monsters lurking in the mine who are trying to beat you. To fight them, you will find a rusty sword right at the entrance, later at level 20 you will find an even better sword.
The mine is divided into different themes, while each theme has its own monsters.
Themes Of The Mine
- Levels 1-39: Brown Earth, Gray Earth
- Levels 40-79: Frozen Earth, Frozen Castle
- Levels 80-120: Purple Earth, Crimson Earth
Hitting with your sword does not cost you energy, so you will not pass out from fighting. If you die against the monsters, 10% of your gold will be deducted, as well as some items in your inventory.
You can buy back lost items in the Adventurer's Guild (right of the mine). Weapons can also be bought there and monster loot can be sold here.
Once you have reached level 5 of the mine, you can use the elevator. The next time you enter the mine, you don't have to fight your way through each level again, you can go straight to level 5.
You can use the elevator every 5 levels, so you can make steady progress in the mine. Next time you go farming in the mine, make sure to leave on the next 5 level step.
