Mining refers to a Monster Hunter: The Savage Coast mechanic or behavior. It is only applicable to High Rank Hunts.


Mining is one of the three gathering activities that can be done on the Savage Coast.

Mining allows you to collect different ores, which are used in crafting shadow gears, Archangel Wings [1] , and Fallen Angel Wings [1] .

Be sure to always be energized while mining as it gives you x2 rewards. You can eat soup at any base camp to refresh your energized ability.

Crafting Ingots

Smelter

Ingots are used to craft shadow gears.

To craft an ingot, you must turn in 18,000 points worth of one type of ore to the Smelter. (Who is in the middle of the Wyvern).

You can use a combination of tier 1, 2, and 3 ores to create and ingot of that type.

Mithril + Azurite + Beryl = Aquastone Ingot

Obsidian + Quartz + Dragonite = Dragonstone Ingot

Aetherite + Firestone + Novacrystal = Flamestone Ingot



You can extract raw ores from an ingot, this will give back less ores than you spend to craft it:

  • 600 tier 1 ores
  • 80 tier 2 ores
  • 24 tier 3 ores
