This is a Gathering Profession based on gathering gems, minerals and ores from rocks.
For the miners who never get undermined
A good miner doesn't just stick his pick anywhere. He learns by carefully observing nature.
Either that or he reads this book, to save a bit of time.
A miner is interested in one thing, and one thing only, ores (of minerals or precious stones), and his is also a harvesting profession.
It is, therefore, essential to know how to recognize them, so keep your eyes open.
Once you're in front of these deposits, you will be able to harvest the mineral directly using your pick.
The deposits will regenerate by themselves after a while. If you watch closely, you'll see that the different minerals take different lengts of time.
Just don't expect a Gold deposit to reappear as quickly as an Iron deposit!
You will need to have your pick with you at all times. Make sure you don't forget it, there's nothing more undermining than standing before a nice gold deposit with no way to get at it.
Remember that certain minerals and precious stones can be refined by a Polisher. These machines tend to be found in the mines, it's not a job to be done in the middle of the forest!
Miners need to use a miner pick in order to harvest ores.
