I first logged on at 7:30 am and decided to do some mining. I found a valorite spot in a cave close to my house and decided to mine it for as long as it lasted. Which turned out to be for quite awhile. So while working from home I'd log in once or twice an hour for 5 min and hit that spot. It finally gave out just before 8pm . My haul for the day was around 500 piles. But it got even better. I next logged in at 11pm and stepped out to see the whole of the mountain near my house strewn with piles of ore. The whole of the northern side of Reaper valley as well as part of the east and west sides was a miner's dream. I don't know why anyone would leave so much ore on the ground for little old me. Maybe I have secret admirer . Twenty minutes of picking up the pieces and this was the final haul (in piles); 550 iron 26 dull copper 256 shadow iron 46 copper 14 bronze 46 gold 18 agapite 48 verite. Plus assorted smaller piles I didn't bother to count.
