My tailor/smith transferred his gm mining to another character, who will be able to mine using gargoyle pick-axes. He's equipped specifically to fight the ore elementals. I forgot though, that this would mean the smith couldn't efficiently smelt common weapon drops, or weapons and armor made while training. I'm thinking of having him train up some mining skill again. How much would he need to be able to get maximal return from smelting iron goods? Does his skill in blacksmithing allow him to smelt stuff made from other ores? If not, I guess the answer would be he should probably re-GM mining.
