Handy tool

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.

Luggage Recommendations

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.
