mining gems/ mining sand

Discussion in 'UO Fishing and Treasure Hunting' started by LORD BOATSWAIN, Dec 13, 2011.

  1. I'm a gm miner but, when I click on my pick axe, and try to set it for mining gems it says "you have not learned how to do this or you do not have enough skill" Also I have tried to purchase a book in ter mur to learn how to mine sand but there is never a book there to buy?? Any help would be appriciated.

    There is a book to buy in Ter Mur too, 'Mining for Quality Gems' is bought from the Gargoyle Blacksmith in Royal City at a cost of 10625gp. This book allows a miner to find the small gems sold by npc jewellers and used as one of the basic ingredients for imbuing.

    You should be finding the big gems if you are Gm mining . You go to the smith which is to the right of the entrance by the moongate

    There is no book for finding the large gems, they just come randomly from GM mining
