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. Resources are generally "Nodes" found across the lands of Middle-earth, which provide crafting materials in Crafting Recipes.

Ore Deposits can only be harvested by characters with the Prospector profession. Prospectors are granted the ability to Track Mines, harvest the ore deposit using Crafting Tools, and process the ore into ingots at a Forge or Superior Forge.


Ore deposit node
Normal yields 1 to 3 ore and a small chance of other crafting materials such as [Dyes|dye materials]], Gems, rare components and mastery components.
These ore nodes also have a chance to spawn a Rich / Bountiful deposit which can yield 4 to 6 ore and have a higher chance to yield these crafting materials.


The following Professions can use the ingots for materials in their own crafting recipes:
