Gathering tool[edit]

Primary article: Gathering tool

Players equip a mining pick in the Mining equipment slot. As a gathering tool, mining picks have a required level and number of charges. Mining picks purchased from vendors are Account Bound and cannot be moved between characters. The required level of the mining pick corresponds to a tier, the tier required to harvest a vein node depends on the type of vein. The required level for the mining pick and the corresponding nodes it's required to mine generally scale with the level of the zone.

Resource node[edit]

Primary article: Resource node

Mining picks are used to mine metal resource nodes. Normal ore nodes can be mined three times in one interaction and give 1-2 ore for each action based on the type of vein. Players have a chance to receive gemstones. Mining veins with a lower tier mining pick will give Ruined Ore Chunk.
