Mining is a useful profession if you want to make wildstar gold and is essential if you plan on being a Blacksmith, Engineer or Jewelcrafter. To be a successful miner, here are a few things to know before you rush off and start chipping away at mineral veins.
If you want a moneymaker, mining is a good choice. Minerals usually sell for decent prices in the Auction Hall, and the gems you find are valuable. If you are an Engineer or Blacksmith, you should also take Mining. This will provide you with most of the raw materials you need to be a decent smith or engineer. Leatherworkers should consider Skinning instead of Mining.
Get yourself a mining pick. These can be found at Mining Supply vendors the world over. They are typically located near a forge or Mining Trainer. The pick should never leave your inventory.
Memorize the places you find mineral veins. Lots of them continually respawn in the exact same place. Several mods can do this for you.Don’t get discouraged if you don’t find a lot of gems. Finding gems is based on completely random chance. Sometimes you’ll get three in a single vein, other times you’ll go weeks and not find a single gem.So keep mining and don’t give up!
