There are two Mining plots in the game, the main Mining plot and the Business Mining plot. For more information about the Mining business check out this page. On the main Mining plot you can mine to gain valuable resources that are mainly used to craft different types of items. Every level deeper that you dig takes twice as long to mine. Depending on the type of resource, some blocks take longer to mine than others, and some blocks require a higher Tool Level.
You can increase your Tool Level by combining higher level Pickaxes with Red Gems on the Crafting Table. Follow these steps go reach the maximum Mining Power level of 20. Please note that resetting your mining plots will reset your Tool Level as well. To regain your Tool Level you will have to obtain another Pickaxe and Red Gem.
Step 1: Obtain a level 12 Pickaxe
There are two ways to obtain a level 12 Pickaxe. Either, play the Tool Crafting mini-game and collect the Pickaxe 12 once you’ve reached it, or purchase a Pickaxe 12 from Glassblock.
Step 2: Obtain a level 7 Red Gem
There are two ways to obtain a level 7 Red Gem. Either, play the Gem Crafting mini-game and collect the Red Gem 7 once you’ve reached it, or purchase a Red Gem 7 from Glassblock.
Step 3: Crafting the 8 Mining support Pets
Some Pets increase the Tool Level you can reach when combining a Pickaxe with a Red Gem. To reach Tool Level 20 you will need to craft 8 support pets, 3 of which need to be Power 100, 5 of which can be Power 50.
Craft Binja, Gemnico and Undergrunt by following the crafting guide. Use White Magic when crafting these Pets.
Binja = Glumpster + Loos = ( Honricle + Horn Billed Bonko ) + Loos = ( Honricle + Horn Billed Bonko ) + [ ( Honricle + Horn Billed Bonko ) + Horn Billed Bonko ]
Gemnico = Gemble + Quapple = ( Sloog + Horn Billed Bonko ) + Quapple = (Sloog + Horn Billed Bonko ) + [ (Sloog + Horn Billed Bonko ) + Horn Billed Bonko ]
Undergrunt = Trigog + Carang = ( Planappal + Honricle ) + Carang = ( Planappal + Honricle ) + [ ( Planappal + Honricle ) + Planappal ]
