    What's a good strategy for mining shadow elementals in those mines? Can you get more than 1k an hour (about what I get with the slow-spawning orc brutes) when you have to keep avoiding or killing the yomotsu warriors and mages? My miner is a standard macer that has no problems with any of the elementals, but I've not had much luck in the tokuno mines because of the other pests there that keep bothering me. What's your experience mining there? Thanks

    IIRC I do 9k per hour.

    p.s. I used my fencing sampire with mining instead of anatomy.

    Corwin, so your sampire is killing the spawn and the ellies - how do you handle the ore - does your sampire have a fire beetle?

    The orc brutes in Orc Dungeon are an alternative, but the spawn is pretty slow.

    Yes. I use a fire beetle while riding an ethereal horse.

    Update: I put mining on sampire, got her a fire beetle and got 5k shadow ingots in half an hour (with bag of sending) jumping on and off beetle and basically ignoring spawn other than whirlwind when killing shadow elementals. Thanks again. So now we have easy shadow in tokuno, quick agapite with ter mur ant goo quest, gold under blackthorn's castle. Gold is so easy you could fill iron bods with gold ingots. Interesting trend here = less reliance on old fashioned mining (or buying from scripters) = good news to me.
