Learn more New Mining & Smithing Changes and Double XP Weekend

Recommended Posts

We kick off February with a clank and a hiss this week as we introduce a round of changes to Mining and Smithing. Forge on for the nitty-gritty details…

Mining & Smithing Changes

You might have heard about something called the Mining and Smithing Rework that we introduced this time last year. That went down really well, but there were still a few lingering issues that we've been able to address this month. We’re hoping that these changes will make the skills more fun and rewarding for everyone.


Mining is now much more reliant on Stamina. Currently, you deal 80% 'damage' to the rock you're mining, even when your Stamina is at zero. After the update, this value will be changed to 20%. You can still restore Stamina by starting to mine the rock again, or by consuming a stone spirit while under the effects of a Perfect Juju Mining Potion. Basically, this means that stone spirits are more useful, and valuable, than they were before.

Rocks that don’t reduce Stamina, like red sandstone and Arc crablets, are unaffected by this update. In addition, Seren stones have had their ‘HP’ increased to 2,000, so they will now take more time to mine. The good news is, mining them will no longer consume Stamina.

To keep track of your Stamina, try enabling the Stamina Bar in the 'Mining' section of the Gameplay Settings menu.


Back at the forge, we’ve also made some improvements to the way smithable items disassemble into components for Invention. From now on, each bar used to smith an item will be worth four Invention parts or components when you break it down. For example, a 2-handed sword with no upgrades, which costs four bars to create, will give 16 parts or components.

In addition, elder rune equipment now has a higher chance of breaking down into components instead of parts.

Since this update will massively increase the availability of parts and components, the Breakdown perk’s activation chance has been adjusted down to a flat 0.8% per rank to compensate.

These changes to Mining and Smithing will go live on February 3rd.

Double XP Weekend: Extended

Don’t forget! Double XP Weekend: Extended will be back on February 21st. This time it’s been extended even further, with a whopping 48 hours of Double XP time spread out over 10 days. That means you’ll have ample time to train your skills, walk the dog, learn the cha-cha, and even have a nap. The height of luxury!

Simply log in whenever you like between Friday February 21st (12:00 game time) and Monday March 2nd (12:00 game time) to enjoy your skilling boost. As soon as you’re in-game, your XP timer will start ticking, and you can keep track of much Double XP time you have left whenever you need via the interface. Any unused Double XP time will be removed at the end of the event.
