Spawning into the game, you're not too far out from delving in your first cave.
There are dozens of caves scattered around the world. On top of that, the caves are full of ferocious creatures and valuable gems..
Next, I will tell you how to avoid danger and get treasure.
First things first, we need to get your hands on the most important tool for mining, your pickaxe.
For a starter a stone pickaxe will do just fine. For now roam around your starting town and collect some woods, stone, and kill some little critters that may inhabit the nearby forest for some leather.
You may craft your first tool! it isn't going to be pretty but mining is a dirty job.
Now that you have made your pick, we are one step closer to delving into the darken abyss to collect some minerals for the sake of progression.
But let's check out our bags to ensure we have the necessary tools to make this as smooth as possible. Now these aren't a must but I would highly recommend you bring:
- Some healing potions
- Various amounts of food
It's also important to note that finding a campfire nearby wouldn't go amiss.
Let's start with the good news, the whole appeal of the cave systems, the minerals they bring.
Every cave is going to have the following ores:
Low level ores can be purchased from merchants or mined on surface with a Stone Pickaxe. Starting from Iron ore, ores can only be found in Caves. They are refined into Ingots in the Forge.
As well as every gems : Gems can be purchased from merchants or mined in Caves with a Stone Pickaxe. They are mostly refined into Necklaces and Rings.
