Mining is a parent skill of Smelting.
To activate this skill, right-click with the mouse while a pickaxe is in your hand, aimed at a mineable block.
Upon activating Super Breaker, the user will be able to mine blocks significantly faster and will receive occasional triple drops from blocks mined.
The duration of the skill starts at 2 seconds and increases by 1 second every 50 levels. At level 1000, the skill lasts 22 seconds. By default, there is no cap on the maximum length of super breaker.
It has a default cooldown of 2 minutes, changeable in the config.yml file. This ability also allows you to triple the chance of getting double drops, though it does do more damage to the pickaxe you are using.
If the pickaxe breaks while this ability is being used, the player will suffer damage. Therefore a high durability pickaxe is recommended and also an unbreaking pickaxe also good.
Instead of using a pickaxe to break blocks, Blast Mining utilizes TNT to destroy and mine blocks. It is activated by lighting TNT with a flint & steel while sneaking. When activating Blast Mining, the range at which the TNT lights is extended. Higher Mining levels will cause Blast Mining to yield more ores and produce less debris.
The radius of the Blast Mining explosion increases with Mining rank. Damage taken by TNT lit with this ability is decreased, but not eliminated.
|Blast Mining Rank||Mining Level||Effects|
|125||-10% debris, +35% ores|
-20% debris, +40% ores, increased blast radius
|3||375||No debris, +45% ores|
|4||500||No debris, +50% ores|
|5||625||Double drops, No debris, +55% ores|
|6||750||Triple drops, No debris, +60% ores|
|7||875||Triple drops, No debris, +65% ores|
Triple drops, No debris, +70% ores
Note: By default, TNT drops 30% of debris.
Each time you level up in mining you get a 0.10'% chance of getting double drops from ores. Double drops work on most materials which are harvested quickly with a pickaxe, like stone and ores.
These are the default values, which can be altered in the configuration file.
- Mining End Stone with a high Efficiency pickaxe will level Mining very quickly. Make sure to equip a pumpkin hat or mine underground to avoid Endermen.
- Strip mining caves will also quickly level Mining. Make sure to mine every ore you see, and avoid digging through stone to maximize leveling speed.
- Strip mining in nether will also help. Make sure you dont fall into lava or accidentally attack zombie pigmans. I would bring fire protections and ender pearls.
