To obtain a pickaxe to mine, you must go to the blacksmith in Cyrennica. There, you will find the Skill Trainer. This is where you will have to go to find all different pieces of equipment for the future profession releases.
When you mine using the Novice Pickaxe, each ore you mine will increase the experience needed for the next level of your pickaxe. Each ores have different levels of experience, and may require a certain level of pickaxe in order to mine them. To see how much experience you’re gathering when mining, you can make effective use of the debug command (/debug), where it will show you the experience to the next level. As you advance your Pickaxe’s level, the tier will also increase along with it. There are 5 tiers, like the equipment used for Combat.
When a Pickaxe is level 99, it will read as “Master”. When you reach level 100, which is the highest value on a pickaxe (Still Tier 5), the pickaxe can no longer be upgraded and will no longer receive experience. When this occurs, you have two options:
1.) You may either use your pickaxe until it breaks, and you will then have to purchase a new one from the skill trainer.
2.) You can also choose to exchange the pickaxe in for the Merchant to receive enchantment scrolls.
As your pickaxe levels up, it can also gain attributes. Some of these being…
• Double Ore Drop • Gem Drop • Triple Ore • Durability Increase • Success Buff
The Skill Trainer in Cyrennica, at the Blacksmith Location. Ore Experience Values:
All Ores have a specific tier, as do the weapons and armor on Dungeon Realms. This is the same with ores. For example, if you mine a Tier 1 Ore (Coal Ore) with a Tier 2 Pickaxe, you will not fail in mining the ore, as your pickaxe is above the required tier of the ore. Success Rates when mining increase as you level.
(These values may change for balancing reasons) Coal Ore: (Tier 1), When mined successfully will grant you 105 experience towards the next level on your pickaxe.
Emerald Ore: (Tier 2), When mined successfully will grant you 245 experience towards the next level on your pickaxe.
Iron Ore: (Tier 3), When mined successfully will grant you 520 experience towards the next level on your pickaxe.
Diamond Ore: (Tier 4), When mined successfully will grant you 855 experience towards the next level on your pickaxe.
Gold Ore: (Tier 5), When mined successfully will grant you 1055 experience towards the next level on your pickaxe.
Where do I find ores, and what are they used for?
Ores (Resource Nodes) are found all across the map in various quantities. They are randomized, but you won’t find a Tier 5 (Gold) ore node in the Tier 1 Beginning Area.
A Tier 1 Coal Ore deposit in the Plains of Cyrene, minable by using the novice pickaxe and above.
When you gather a hefty sum of ores, you can spend these by exchanging them at the merchant for either scraps of that tier, or the newest addition, Gem Pouches. Gem Pouches are explained in the Banking and Gems guide, which will tell you their usage. The exchange rates for Gem Pouches and scraps are as follows:
Scrap Exchange Rates:
One Tier 1 Coal → Three Tier 1 Scraps.
One Tier 2 Emerald Ore → Two Tier 2 Scraps.
One Tier 3 Iron Ore → One Tier 3 Scraps.
One Tier 4 Diamond Ore → One Tier 4 Scraps.
Two Tier 5 Gold Ore → One Tier 5 Scrap.
Gem Pouch Exchange Rates:
Currently, Gem Pouches can hold up to 300 Gems. There are as of this update 4 Types of Gem Pouches in different quantities, all going up by 50 each. To expand your knowledge on this mechanic, it is advised you check out the banking, looting, and gems guide which includes this concept for an insight into the topic itself.

To fish, you can obtain a fishing rod from the Skill Trainer NPC. He sells them along with other useful equipment for professions. Like the pickaxe, the Fishing rod has the same leveling characteristics. For example,
- Every 20 levels the rod’s tier is upgraded.
- When the rod reaches level 100, it cannot be leveled further, and must be exchanged to the merchant for a custom scroll or used until breaking.
- Random buffs are added to the rod as it is used.
