These are the raw materials that can be gathered by Miners. Most of them can be used in Blacksmithing, some are also required in quests, while others are worthless vendor junk or quest items.

Metal Types

There are eight different metal qualities that you can gather:

  • Impure Copper
  • Refined Copper
  • Impure Iron
  • Refined Iron
  • Impure Mithril
  • Refined Mithril
  • Adamantite

Each of them requires a different skill level to gather, and most of them can be gathered in separate areas.

There are eight possible kinds of resources for various metal qualities: base, blank, chunk, mold, plating, ribbon, sheet, and strip. Not all of them exist in every metal type. They can be used in different Blacksmithing recipes for different effects.

Ores and gems are usually (but not always) received as an additional drop when you gather resources.

There are also two special resources that you can mine starting at Yazes Shard: Trinium Ore and Argen Ore. Both of these are used to make Trinium Ingot I/II which ae items used on the construction of 2nd/3rd generation ship devices.
