A gathering profession focusing on extracting usable metals and gems from rocky outcrops.
While mining nodes can be found just about anywhere they're most often found in rocky areas, on the side of cliffs, in construction and quarry areas, and caves. When it comes to caves, the deeper and larger the cave, the more likely for there to be mining nodes; Very deep and complex caves are also more likely to contain rare mining nodes.
Mining nodes come in a few different forms. Iron Veins are the most basic vein, and provide Iron Ore, Raw Stone, and a chance for Pure Iron Ore. Fortuna Veins give a chance for Copper Ore, Silver Ore, Gold Ore, Archeum Ore, Crystals, or Precious gems. Fortuna Veins have a chance to appear immediately following mining of an Iron Vein.
