Rift Mining Guide

rift-mining-50x50This Rift mining Leveling Guide helps beginners to advanced players level their Mining from 1-450 in the most efficient manner.  

Mining Tips:

 

Train for Novice Mining Levels 1-75

Mine Tin to level 35. At level 35, mine Copper as well as Tin to level 75.

 

Train for Skilled Mining Levels 75-145

Mine Iron until level 115 then go for some Chromite.

If you're Defiant - in Stonefield kill and Mine the rock creatures (Earthmauls and Lithics) inside the blue arrows below. It's much, much faster to mass pwn and Mine. You should also find some Iron along the black arrow path as well.

If you're starting or leveling a toon, we recommend using a Leveling Guide.

 

Train for Expert Mining Levels 145-225

Mine Cobalt to 185 then Titanium to 225.

At 195 you can take the alternative path and head over to Shimmersand to kill the Sunwarmed Stoneling. Looting these may level you faster, rather than farming every individual node.

Train for Master Mining Levels 225-295

Mine Carmintium until 260 then Orichalcum to 295.

At 265 there is an alternative path you can take. Pop over to Ember Isle and kill the Pirate Minions. You can loot these guys to level rather than having to farm each indivdual node.

At level 280 you can head over to the Kingdom of Pelladane and take down the Centurion Patrollers. You can do this and level your Mining all the way up to 335 if you want but don't forget to train at 300.

Train for Grandmaster Mining Levels 295-375

Mine Gantimite to level 335, then Karthite is available to Mine at level 335 all the way to 375.

At level 330 you can pwn the Estate Guardians in Ardent Domain for an alternative leveling option, rather than farming each individual ore node. Do this until Mining level 350 and then you can check out Ashora.
