Mining

From The Walkscape Walkthrough


Mining is a skill that allows you to extract ores and gems. Ores can be processed into bars with the Smithing skill. With higher Mining levels, you'll have access to more ores, better pickaxes, and special skilling equipment that can boost your mining efficiency. You can also receive mining chests as a rare drop from training this skill.

Activities

For activities involving two skills, the player is only eligible to earn chests in skills that have actual level requirements.

So, if the activity has a mining level requirement, it will be eligible to drop Mining Chests.

When performing an activity for a skill, only the primary skill is factored in for the player's equipment bonuses, the "2nd Skill" will also be affected by the equipment attributes based toward the "1st Skill" (IE: +1 Exp will apply to the "2nd Skill" as well).

The following activities are eligible to drop Mining Chests.
