Mining equipment

Mining utilizes the pickaxe tool. There are 5 tiers of pickaxes, with each tier increasing the mining speed.

Tool Tier Level Gear score Mining speed
Flint Mining Pickaxe.png Flint Mining Pickaxe Tier I 0 100 100%
Iron Mining Pickaxe.png Iron Mining Pickaxe Tier II 5-19 200-300 125-225%
Steel Mining Pickaxe.png Steel Mining Pickaxe Tier III 20-39 300-400 250-350%
Starmetal Mining Pickaxe.png Starmetal Mining Pickaxe Tier IV 40-59 400-500 400-550%
Orichalcum Mining Pickaxe.png Orichalcum Mining Pickaxe Tier V 60 500-600 625-850%

In practice, players can achieve gear scores which are not in the above range, since these are the crafting values for equal quality crafting. As an example, take the "Starmetal Mining Pickaxe". If the pickaxe is crafted at Engineering level 100 with secondary materials T2, it can lower the minimal gear score range by 20. This reduces the gathering speed slightly, but also enables players to use the pickaxe at lower levels (still at least 37).
