Standard dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • Mining Instructor: Hi there. You must be new around here. So what do I call you? 'Newcomer' seems so impersonal, and if we're going to be working together, I'd rather call you by name.
  • Player: You can call me [player name].
  • Mining Instructor: Ok then, [player name]. My name is Dezzick and I'm a miner by trade. Let's teach you how to mine.
  • Mining Instructor: Mining is very simple, all you need is a pickaxe. The rocks around here contain tin and copper. Why don't you get started by mining some? If you're unsure which is which, you can prospect them to find out.
  • Player is given a Bronze pickaxe.
  • (End of dialogue)

Before mining both tin and copper[edit | edit source]

  • Mining Instructor: The rocks around here contain tin and copper. You should try mining some. If you're unsure which is which, you can prospect them to find out.

After mining both tin and copper[edit | edit source]

  • Mining Instructor: Now that you have some ore, you should smelt it into a bronze bar. You can use the furnace over there to do so.
  • (End of dialogue)

After smelting a bronze bar[edit | edit source]

  • Player: I have a bronze bar. What now?
  • Mining Instructor: Now that you've got a bar, you can smith it into a weapon. To smith something, you need a hammer and an anvil. There's some anvils just here that you can use. See if you can make a bronze dagger.
  • Player is given a Hammer.

Before smithing a bronze dagger[edit | edit source]

  • Mining Instructor: Would you like me to recap anything?
    • Tell me about prospecting again.
      • Player: Tell me about prospecting again.
      • Mining Instructor: It's really very simple. Usually when you go mining you can see if there is ore in a rock or not by its colour.
      • Mining Instructor: If you come across a rock you've not seen before and want to know what it is, or if you can't tell if a rock contains ore just by sight,
      • Mining Instructor: then simply right-click on the rock and select prospect to check closely. Anything else you wanted to know?
      • (Shows previous options)
    • Tell me about Mining again.
      • Player: Tell me about mining again.
      • Mining Instructor: Certainly. To mine you need a pickaxe. Different pickaxes let you mine more efficiently.
      • Mining Instructor: Earlier I gave you a bronze pickaxe, which is the most inefficient pickaxe available, but is perfect for a beginner.
      • Mining Instructor: To mine, simply click on a rock that contains ore while you have a pickaxe with you, and you will keep mining the rock until you manage to get some ore, or until it is empty.
      • Mining Instructor: The better the pickaxe you use, the faster you will get ore from the rock you're mining.
      • Mining Instructor: You will be able to buy better pickaxes from the Dwarven Mine when you reach the mainland, but they can be expensive.
      • Mining Instructor: Also, the better the pickaxe the higher the Mining level required to use it will be. Was there anything else you wanted to hear?
      • (Shows previous options)
    • Tell me about smelting again.
      • Player: Tell me about smelting again.
      • Mining Instructor: Smelting is very easy. Simply take the ores required to make a metal to a furnace, then use the ores on the furnace to smelt them into a bar of metal.
      • Mining Instructor: Furnaces are expensive to build and maintain, so there are not that many scattered around the world. I suggest when you find one you remember its location for future use.
      • Mining Instructor: An alternative to using a furnace to smelt your ore is to use high-level magic to do it.
      • Mining Instructor: As well as letting you smelt ore anywhere, it has a guaranteed success rate in smelting all ores.
      • Mining Instructor: Some metals, such as iron, contain impurities and can be destroyed during the smelting process in a traditional furnace, but magical heat does not destroy them.
      • Mining Instructor: Anything else?
      • (Shows previous options)
    • Tell me about Smithing again.
      • Player: Tell me about Smithing again.
      • Mining Instructor: When you have acquired enough bars of the metal you wish to work with, you are ready to begin smithing.
      • Mining Instructor: Take the hammer I gave you, or buy a new one from a general store, and proceed to a nearby anvil.
      • Mining Instructor: By using a metal bar on an anvil you will be presented with a screen showing the objects you are able to smith at your current level.
      • Mining Instructor: It's a pretty straightforward skill as I'm sure you discovered while making me that lovely bronze dagger.
      • Mining Instructor: The higher Smithing level you are, the better quality the metal you can work with. You start off on bronze and work your way up as your smithing skills increase.
      • Mining Instructor: Anything else?
      • (Shows previous options)
    • Nope, I'm ready to move on!
      • Player: Nope, I'm ready to move on!
      • Mining Instructor: Okay then.
