In order to learn Engineering, I borrowed another profession from my friend and decided to mine by myself. And through mining process I summarized some personal understandings and suggestions which I’d like to share with other players who like to support themselves by their own labor or those who make up their minds to become good miners in World of Warcraft.
1. Opening subject of Mining from trainer and having mining tool do not mean that you will become a qualified miner. Patience, enough time and knowing mineral resources distribution well are the necessary factors absolutely. (Tip: some mining assisting plug-in are very helpful for finding resource locations.)
2. ‘Finding ores around mountains, gathering herbs under trees’. If you want to mine more resources, try to fly to mountains and some odd places often.
3. Every place has fixed types of ores and updated time, so don’t expect that a rare resource will suddenly appear in the same place where there was a normal one last round.
4. If you want to be more efficient on mining, and meanwhile you are with a bad sense of direction, then you’d better try to enter caves less, especially those complicated double-deck and spiral structure caves with rails and mine carts in Azeroth, unless the caves obtain very rare mineral resources or there are more than three resources points.
5. If you find some rare mines which you do not need actually, for example Gold or Silver Ore, Khorium, Titans etc. Remember, do take them all. You would feel super happy when you’ve seen the trading prices of them in Auction House. There is nothing better than earning some extra wow gold when do tasks.
6. When plug-in shows that large numbers of resources is distributing on a map, but you don’t find even one flying for a long time. “Congratulations” to you that there must be a competitor miner who is mining not far from you now. And in this time, you have two options.
First leave this place.
Second change your route. Fly from reverse direction with the competitor.
Assume that you choose the second way and you guys encounter, if he is a rival in low level, please leave the word of “The Alliance and Horde reach a temporary truce to defeat the Legion” away temperately and kill him decisively. Resources are limited in this place after all. Don’t forget to take one or two bunches of Thermal Anvil with you, then you don’t need to run back and forth for finding them.
The last but not the least, mental fatigue and glassy eyes might be caused by long time mining in World of Warcraft, so do some fishing or other daily tasks to break the routine during mining process.
Now the Patch 6.1 has been released, there are some improvements of leveling Mining that “you can now mine ore in the world without a required skill level. The amount of ore you’ll get is determined by your skill level.” Moreover, the system can cover all types of ore after been expanded which is more efficient to do mining tasks than before in deed, so have fun in Mining!
Special reminding for buyers that there are some tricksters in World of Warcraft now, so don’t trust any other traders easily in game after trading with us. For more details, please read this article.
NOTICE: All gold we sell is legal. If some tricksters who Whisper to you after trading, please ignore them to avoid gold loss. DON’T TRADE GOLD BACK TO ANYONE ELSE.
