A prospector mining a skarn deposit

"Prospectors gather stone and ore from the earth for use in other crafting Vocations."

Prospectors gather and refine metal ore for the Metalsmith, Weaponsmith, and Jeweller professions. While gathering the ore from resource nodes (also known as mining), prospectors may also occasionally find gems, dye salts or other components that are used in other crafting professions. For a comprehensive list of items that may be found in each type of ore deposit, see the Resources page.

Required Tools


Materials

Prospectors craft metal ingots by refining and smelting Ore at a forge. The prospector can find ore by using the Track Mines skill, which directs them to the nearest ore deposit throughout the lands of Middle-earth.

Ore deposits are found across the lands of Middle-earth. Prospectors have the ability to Track Mines, and process the ore using Prospector's Tools. Normal ore deposits yield 1 to 3 ore, while Rich/Bountiful ore deposits yield 4 to 6 ore and are more likely to also yield crafting materials such as Dyes material, gems, Crafting Rare Components and mastery components. Prospectors have the skill to smelt ore into ingots for other professions. Metalsmiths, Weaponsmiths, and Jewellers can use these ingots to craft items.

Strange Ore sightings

In some places, strange looking ore deposits might be spotted.

These deposits can't be interacted with nor do they appear on radar.

These are for quests, where the NPC sends you out to find N chunks of Y-ore. They can be found in all areas of Middle Earth.
