Recipe Lists

Mining has no recipes of its own, as Mining Surveys are crafted using Surveying. Once crafted, Mining Survey Maps require a certain Level of Mining to use.

Using a Mining Survey

Glowy Yellow Crystals

are hazardous rocks often found on the Gazluk Plateau. Known to the Dwarves as Vol's Kiss, these crystals can inflict health-sapping statuses upon the uninformed. Protection against the effects of the crystals can be learned from Aven.

Motherlode Map

Motherlode maps are more difficult than normal surveys, but give much greater rewards. When you use them, no red dot will appear on your minimap, and won't be given the exact location. You'll only be told the distance to the motherlode. If you're 1000 meters away, the motherlode could be on any point in the 1000-radius circle around you. When you find the motherlode, you'll often be rewarded with 15-30 metal slabs, ores, and other rewards.
