Is Blackrock still spawning?

    I have heard that small Blackrock is still spawning. I have been mining all day without a single piece dropping. Either I am doing this wrong, or the spawn has stopped. Anyone know?

    I've done a bit of mining the past few days, and I have had a few pieces of blackrock, so yes, it is still spawning :)

    Is this just from regular mining in any area? Do you have to be 100 skill? Not sure if I am doing something wrong. Thanks.

    I don't know what skill you need to mine it. I'm 100 real skill and I use the +5 mining skill gloves, and I mine in fel.
     
  7. 95 skill for gems and I think blackrock was the same.

    I think the drop rate is something like 1/10th to 1/20th the chance of getting a gem ... so a little bad/good luck can easily lead to long spawns of no blackrock.

    gm for gems or 95 + 5 mining gloves to equal 100.

    Does luck, the kind added in game, have anything to do with being able to get gems and/or blackrock?

    I've never actually sat down and crunched stats (I only make a mining run every now and then), but I do not believe so.

    Has there been any mention of them fixing blackrock infecting?

    Only that there are still plans for blackrock ... I haven't seen a statement about the infection system.
