Mining is a skill that allows players to dig ores from certain mining spots. There are no requirements for mining high-level ores, but higher levels in mining allow ores to be dug up more quickly. Minable materials include iron, tin, coal, gold, silver, and platinum. Mining platinum is one of the best money-making methods in the game, with players with high mining levels able to make over 40000 trias an hour if the platinum is sold to other players. Normal street price for platinum is just over 1000 trias. Metals can be melted in furnaces and then made into metal stocks, and then made into weapons. Weapons made of better metals can sell for extremely high prices.
