Mining Stuck at 95 ???

    I retrained my miner.

    Used to wear the +5 mining gloves then i realized i stuck at 95. I took em off and tried for really hours but i didnt even get a single gain within 1 day.

    Is there a bug or why didnt my mine raised above 95.0 ?

    Is your skill set to up?

    I've found that the best gains come from smelting the high-level ores. Get your piles, and smelt one by one, and you have a better chance of gaining than mining alone.

    There are two gain systems for mining, that are really unrelated.

    1. Gains from Mining: These are difficulty based, on your chance to successfully DIG ore. At 100 skill, you become 100% able to get ore from any swing, which means that you can't gain from minng anymore. As a result, if you are at 95 real, and wearing the +5 gloves, your gains from swinging a pick/shovel will stop.

    2. Gains from smelting: These are difficulty based, but on the chance to successfully SMELT the ore.
    Iron Ore starts at 0% at 25 skill, becoming 100% (and no chance to gain skill from smelting) at 75 skill.
    Colored ores start at 65 skill for Dull Copper (+5 for each successive metal, except Valorite which is at 99 skill), with a base of 50% for every colored ore, when it becomes accessible. Each of these can be gained on from smelting for 25 skill points after one gets the ability to mine them. So, DC stops giving gains at 90, Shadow at 95, Copper at 100 and Bronze at 105 (smelting with gloves). However, gains are quickest for metals when in the 60-80% range (minimum skill to mine/smelt +5 to +15). Typically, it's better to smelt harder metals for gains, than smelt ones you are 80% or better to smelt.
