An Ore Vein

Using a Pickaxe, a miner can dig ore from ore veins scattered throughout the world. The ore collected can then be smelted into a usable form, called ingots. These ingots can then be used as ingredients to craft various Crafting Skill items.

Whenever an ore vein is depleted, a player will no longer be able to find any usable ore from the vein. Whenever an ore vein refreshes after being harvested, there is a slight chance that it will change its resource type. For example, an ore vein that previously yielded Verite ore may now yield Dull Copper ore. Alternatively, an Iron ore vein may respawn to yield Valorite ore.

Smelting

Before ore can be used for Blacksmithing, Tinkering, or otherwise, it but must first be smelted into ingots using a forge or the Smelt special ability.

The various colored ore types require higher levels of Mining skill in order to refine successfully. The skill required to successfully smelt higher-tier ore is equal to the Mining skill required to harvest the ore. However, unlike the conversion of hides and logs, a skill check is performed at the refining stage. If failed, no ingots will be produced after smelting and materials (i.e. ore) are lost. Historically, when smelting high-level ore such as Verite or Valorite, it was best to separate large piles of ore into smaller piles in order to prevent large resource losses.

The following table outlines the smelting success rates for each ore at different Mining skill levels. (NOTE: The values in this table may need adjusted)
