Female Pixie Miner

Mining is fun - just ask any Dwarf! If you are ready to get your hands dirty, hop into exciting mining minigames , where you collect ore and gems as rewards. Miners start by harvesting copper and turquoise. As they level, they learn to dig for new metals, such as tin, silver, iron and even gold. Miners also smelt metal into bars that are used by Blacksmiths to make other cool weapons and armor.
Miner is a harvesting job, specializing in the mining of ore and gems and can also smelt the ore into ingots. A crafting class job, experience is gained by completing Miner quests, mining Ore and playing the Smelting minigames.

Recently, they removed the mining minigames, and instead changed to a traditional MMORPG mining style.

Unlocking Miner Edit

Miner can be unlocked by speaking to Therin in the Singing Crystal Mines of Snowhill.

Alternately, if the player interacts with one of the various ore nodes or forges, they will receive an optional quest to become a miner.

Singing Crystal Mines

Singing Crystal Mines

There are several different places to mine through Free Realms . The first one that you will be going to will be for a quest. That mining place is toward the north side of Snowhill  in the Singing Crystal Mines. There are also rich mining veins in the world that members can only mine from. To mine you make groups (three or more) of similarly colored tiles. Your goal is to get whatever you are mining to the bottom of the board.
