Problems with mining; mining skill 87% but only iron ore

    Hi there.

    I've a problem with mining. Like I've written in the title I can't find any other ores apart from iron ore.
    My skill is 87 and I've dug round about 2000 and more iron ores. I'm primarily digging in Minoc but I've tried in New Heaven and West Britain, too.
    My Char is two days old. Yesterday evening I've removed my young status manually, because I've thought that's the reason, but no effect.
    Can anybody help me or say me, what my problem is?

    Thanks a lot and regards
    an angry Miner :)

    if the account is only 2 days old you will not be able to mine anything other than plain ore. this was put in place a while back to deter script mining, i.e,
    people who used trial accounts to script mine ore for profit and if they get banned just use another trial account.

    a breakdown of ore that can be mined at different skill levels as flws:

    0+ Iron Ore
    65+ Dull Copper Ore
    70+ Shadow Iron Ore
    75+ Copper Ore
    80+ Bronze Ore
    85+ Golden Ore
    90+ Agapite Ore
    95+ Verite Ore
    99+ Valorite Ore

    so i think you must wait 15 days until the trial is up. young status has nothing to do with it.

    hope that helps.
  3. 87 mining in 2 days.....my how things have changed.. I like the idea to slow down script miners but too bad if you aren't one. Work on other skills till then.

    If you pay for the account I think you won't be on "Trial" any longer... in case you don't want to wait for the 14 days or whatever.

    As previously stated as long as your on trial you won't get any other ore than iron. You will need to pay for your account at any time to be able to do anything else.
