Ore Extraction is a complex topic in Mortal Online 2. There is a vast amount of catalysts, Extraction devices, and materials. Because of this, it is hard to understand where to start. As a result, it is very likely to waste hard-earned resources by making the wrong decision in extraction. That is why I created this Ore Extraction Calculator for you.
But before you actually start to extract there is a few steps that you should take.
Make sure to check the ore extraction calculator for the best suitable device to operate on your material.
Look at the skills needed and read all the books for it to the end.
Assuming you did some gathering while you were reading books, you should have a good amount of material banked. When you take them out for your first extraction be mindful of hostile players around!
And think about a backup plan beforehand in case you are getting attacked.
Granum, Calx, Gabore, Saburra, and Tephra are the basic ores you can directly mine in Nave’s countryside. As a rule of thumb, they either go into a crusher or a grinder to separate them into their basic components. Another important rule is, that you only need the Basic ore extraction skill to extract them.
Calspar, Coal, Malachite, Blood Ore, Galbinum, Amaranthum, Bleckblende, Red Bleckblende, Cinnabar, Magmum are intermediate materials. To extract them you need Intermediate Ore Extraction on top of your Basic Ore extraction. Once you get to these materials you need to broaden your knowledge of ore extraction machines. But I got you covered simply check the ore extraction calculator for what works best among all the machines that are available inside your action radius.
Electrum, Chalk Glance, Pyroxene, Waterstone are advanced materials. To extract these moneymakers you need Advanced Ore Extraction in addition to all the previous ore extraction skills. At this stage, you will need all of the machines you can possibly access within reason. Mind you, the best machine for the job might be far away, or not safe to access for you or your guild.
Grainsteel, Steel, Tungsteel, Bron, Messing, Tindremic Messing, Cronite, and Oghmium are alloys. This group of materials is created in a refining oven. They all are created by combining 2 units of base metal and 1 unit of another metal and compound material each to create 1 unit of the resulting alloy in the refining oven. The additional skill you will need is Refining Expertise, but don’t worry if you know the thermal appliances skill, which is a parent of the furnace skill you have all prerequisites needed to read the book.
Select a base Material you want to extract materials out of. Then pick a device to extract with.
But before you start it is very important to check if your character has the secondary and primary skills listed. This way you make sure to extract at high efficiency. In doubt consult this post about profession-skills.
And lastly, make use of the sorting functionality in the result table. This is useful for narrowing down the catalyst you want to use. Crushers and Grizzlys don’t need a catalyst though.
Here you see which ore extraction devices are feasible for extracting basic ores.
Get ready to scroll. Lots of subject matter to cover 🙂
