    What is the secret of mining niter? My Gargoyle miner the problem? He has 1078 luck, 100 mining skill, mines from boat, finds no niter. Please give me some help.

    Yeas Storm I have the expansion, you say I can find it in caves also? I hope so cause boat mining is a pain. Finally found some just now. Thxs for the reply. Can you tell me what to do with it after mining it. Make gunpowder?

    Saltpeter can be mined from niter deposits in dungeons or from boats. Only miners with high luck can find these deposits which can occur in 5 different sizes. Once found the miner must mine the deposit until it is consumed. The niter will decay if not mined when found.

    I have not tested this but my belief is if its a cave that you walk in and out of without moving to the dungeon server then it wont work !
    like there are some caves that you dont refresh the screen for ! hope that makes sense
