Mining is a skill focused around mining stone and ores. A notable perk of this skill is the higher potential yield from each ore, increased even further when using an active skill. Mining also adds new functionality to TNT, by allowing remote detonation. Mining is a parent skill of Smelting.
Speed + Triple drop chance
Super Breaker, while activated (by right-clicking with a pickaxe in hand), will add Efficiency V on your pickaxe, for a period of time depending on your mining level. If your pickaxe already had an Efficiency enchantment 5 you will get efficiency 10
The duration of the skill starts at 2 seconds, increases by 1 second every 50 levels.
Cool down time is 240 seconds by default unaffected by level. This ability also allows you to triple the chance of getting double drops / replacing double drop chance with triple drop chance for the duration of super breaker.
Double the normal loot
Double drops is a passive skill that allows the player to gain two items instead of the usual one when mining any naturally generated block found in the experience table below. The odds of this happening increase by 0.1% per level to a maximum of 100% at level 1000. It does not stack with the fortune enchantment, but does work with silk touch.
Bonuses to mining with TNT
Locked until level 125 mining
Instead of using a pickaxe to break blocks, Blast Mining utilizes TNT to destroy and mine blocks. It is activated by using a flint & steel outside of the standard ignition range (shift and right-click the air between yourself and the TNT). Unlike ignition in vanilla, the TNT explodes instantly.
With Blast Mining, the range at which the TNT ignites is extended. Higher Mining levels will yield more ores and less debris. By default, TNT drops 30% of what is blown up, and is increased further with's each level.
Increases TNT explosions gains its maximum bonus of 4.
Decreases damage from TNT explosions
Locked until level 500 mining
Demolitions expertise is a passive ability that reduces the damage done by TNT with Blast Mining by 25%. At level 750, the damage is decreased by 50%. At level 1000, damage reduction is 100%. (Note that TNT ignited through standard means still causes harm, and only when ignited through Blast Mining is the damage negated.)
- The double drops ability does not stack with the fortune enchantment. To circumvent this, you can use a silk touch pickaxe to obtain the additional ores, place them back on the ground, and then mine with a fortune pickaxe for the maximum possible yield.
