This is a Gathering Profession based on gathering gems, minerals and ores from rocks.
For Miners Who Do Not Undermine
A good miner doesn't just stick his pick anywhere. He learns by carefully observing nature.
Either that or he reads this book, to save a bit of time.
A miner is interested in one thing, and one thing only: mines (deposits of ores or precious stones). His is a harvesting profession.
It's essential to know how to recognize your resources, so keep your eyes peeled.
Once you're in front of these mines, you will be able to harvest the ore directly.
The mines will regenerate by themselves after a while. If you watch closely, you'll see that the different ores take different lengths of time. Just don't expect a gold mine to reappear as quickly as an iron mine!
Remember that certain ores and precious stones can be refined by a polisher. These machines tend to be found in the mines; it's not a job to be done in the middle of the forest, after all!
Miners can use a Polisher to craft items and polish stones.
Before the 1.0 patch on March 28, 2012 miners had to use a miner pick to harvest ores. Mining used to have to be learned at a Clan Member before it could be used.
