Quarrying rocks; items in toolbar are the drops from large and smaller rocks

Quarrying, also colloquially referred to as mining, refers to obtaining crafting materials by breaking rocks. The player can break rocks with either Pickaxes or a Mini-Drill, although larger rocks require stronger tools and/or a higher attack to break.

Tools and skills[]

Quarrying tools[]

Larger rocks can be quarried after gaining a high enough Attack stat. It is recommended to use a Bronze Pickaxe on medium rocks if under level 15 verify ] and an Iron Pickaxe on large rocks if under level 20 verify ], but large rocks can be mined with even a basic Pickaxe if the player's passive Attack stat is high enough. Small, medium, and large rocks can be found along the outside of the Portia city walls and inside the Collapsed Wasteland.

Useful skills[]

There are certain helpful Skills that either make it easier to mine, increase Stamina to be able to mine more, or reduce the amount of items needed for crafting on the Worktable so that less mining trips are needed. If the player wishes to reallocate their skill points (ex. investing points in Mastery of Pickaxe early on, then later switching to Expert Electrician), they can ask Phyllis for an Acupuncture treatment.
