    Help when mining

    Started in 2003 as a miner and I still love it.
    Off course I had some breaks, did other things, but mining has also completely changed over the years and is very stable.
    So if you want to contact me and I'm DND (Do Not Disturb) I'm dropping bombs and must say I still find mining very relaxing and fun.
    Mining has become very technical now (at least if you want to do profit mining)

    Hope all is clear, if not, just ask
    GL mining all.

    WHAT FINDER to use?
    Always only use a finder that you have maxed.
    When is a finder maxed?
    If the average depth numbers are equal so that means for a F-105 it should say 522,4/522,4 on ores if you go for ores.
    While mining your skills will go up and you can use higher lvl finders that can go deeper.
    This doesn't mean you will make more profit ^^

    If you didn't maxed out the finder, you can use it and find things, but you will find less. (not smaller claim sizes)

    The average depth means you will find most stuff -200 and +200 on that depth.

    Let's take the finder B35. Average depth is 502,50

    In the pic you see I didn't maxed it so it says 444,5/502,50 not much of a difference but still.
    Now let's count the -200 and +200 on this finder when you have it maxed, this means you will find stuff between 302,50 and 702,50
    Now let's count the -200 and +200 on this finder when you did not maxed it, this means you will find stuff between 302,50 and 644,5, so now your loosing (702,5 minus 644,50 depth) a difference of 58 depth. Claims in this 58 difference you will not find so your loosing peds
    Agree it isn't much but doing this over and over again...



    SIB means getting more skills so that is positive, but I would go for a better return first, not for skills.
    Skills you will need to use higher finders.
    But then I ask you again? Why use a higher finder? What are you going to mine?
    Look at the economics and MU's first, then go mining

    3 different mining types
    The cheapest to mine is enmatter : you will get most skills with surveyor and costs 0,50 ped for 10 probes/drop/unamped
    The second in line is ores : you will get most skills with prospecting costs 1 ped for 20 probes/drop/unamped
    And last but not least : treasures will give you most skills in treasure hunter costs 1.50 ped for 30 probes/drop/unamped

    Finders that use more probes exist but we will talk about that later, same about amps.

    HOW to mine
    Honeycomb methode leaves the least open spots so prefer to mine like this

    While mining keep a close eye to your HR (Hitrating) AND your return, mostly count after 50 drops to be sure)
    If your TT return is very low STOP mining and change zone/server, its always possible some 1 just mined there or that zone isn't giving much.
    So try another zone.
    If you are getting bad results there also, stop mining and try again tomorrow. Dont think hmm maeby the next 1 is good .... you will loose :p
    Average HR depends on what you find, if your mining very deep and looking for high end ores, it's normal the HR goes down cause you find resources with high %. It's all very well balanced to keep % up.
    You can have a normal HR and still have less results (cause you are getting mostly poor/very poor claims) so that's why I count every 50 drops.

    Thanks to Avrelivs for this pic


    HOW NOT to mine
    When just running around (chicken run) and dropping bombs you will loose a lot if your not lucky

    WHERE to find what you want to mine?
    The MOST IMPORTANT is to KNOW THE ZONE where you want to mine, so if you are a starting mining, keep going to only a few zones at a time.

    First thing to do is download and install Little Big Mining Blog.http://www.mininglog.com/
    While mining it will register all your findings, even at what time you found them and the depth. This if very handy for future use.
    If you zoom into the map of this tool you will notice squares equal to the maps http://www.mininglog.com/maps.php
    If the maps says you will find XX for a certain %, this doesn't mean you will find it in the whole square, you still need to find where.
    But while mining there and using LBMB you will make your own map that register it all for you.

    You can find almost anything at any depth when its on that server at a specific place, What you get depends on what finder you use.
    Try it out on a good zone you have and keep doing the same runs over and over again, then check the outcomes.

    For the moment I'm testing out different finders (UNL) in some area's to know what finder is best to use when I want to mine some specific resources.

    Megan can be found between 190 depth and 1581 depth with an average of 907 depth (according to LBML)
    Some results for megan in a zone I use :
    When using the F-101 (depth 20-592) I get 11,98% megan
    When using the F-102 I get 16,56% megan
    When using the F-103 (depth 153-597) I get 17,32% megan
    When using the F-104 (depth 233-801) I get 18,40 % megan
    When using the F-105 I get 19,38% megan
    When using the F-106 (depth 312-935) I get 20,70% megan

    Offcourse I find less megan (with lower finders) here but if you compare the costs ..... do some maths :p

    You can also do that for resources with a lower MU, like Iron sells very fast .... and with a F-103 I'm getting (in a specific zone) 97% so you dont always have to get that very deep.

    Mining for enm/ore/trea at the same time?
    No, I mostly dont do that only on a few zones.
    Here is why.

    Let's have a look at an area where I go mine for typo and kanerium.

    What kind of enmatters do I find there? (average depth)
    Cave sap (672) - Garcen (689) - Magerian (687) - Typo (681)
    With typo being the best to mine here cause % is the highest I would use my F-106 + 2 enhancers that would let me mine on a depth of 668,7 or 3 enhanders for 711,2

    What kind of ores doe I find here? (average depth)
    Belkar (840) - Durulium (760) - Gazzurdite (710) - Kanerium (771)
    With kanerium being the best to mine here cause % is the highest I would use mu F-106 with 3 enhancers that would let me mine on a depth of 755,20 or 4 enhancers for 798,5 depth

    Off course you will not only get the typo nor the kanerium but also the others, but now your best shot is for typo and kanerium when you do seperate runs.
    In this case I can also go with my F-106 + 3 enhancers, but this isn't the case everywhere you go mining, so plan a head.

    As I go mining for a certain (example) enmatter I do not need ores nor treasure. It will only make my run a lot more costly, but I'll also get what I do not want.
    You will also need to keep a close look on the costs and return, so lets say you are doing a 100 ped run for enmatters, then I check every 25 ped (so every 50 drops) what the return is. Using a portable TT unit is very handy (or make an excell sheet)
    When mining for enm/ore/trea at the same time, will make it harder to track what is going good or bad.

    Economics and TT return
    MA changes economics in mining almost daily (imo)
    This is great to see MU's go up and down BUT this is what makes you give a good or bad run.
    Let's assume you have a nice place to mine some narcanisum, when mining you see that you are getting more other resources and also that your return is lower than usual. When you finish your run and check auction you will see that narcanisum has less pages than normal ..... That's because economics on narcanisum have been altered, less findings and MU will go up.
    Time to sell your stock if you have some
    Here again, its very important to know your mining zones.

    Re-bombing or not
    Let's assume you drop a probe and got a hit and the claims spawns right next to you.
    When using LBML is will even say how much % of where you are standing is left to find another claim... Now you have to choose move on or re-bomb the same spot.
    I tried it many times and I don't think that I did find another claim at that same spot for more than 5%. Never took notes of it, but in my opinion it's not worth it.

    Indoor mining
    Indoor mining can be done on Monria, FOMA,Hell and Arkadia Underground
    Here are links for FOMA and HELL mining
    REMEMBER that in those area's you only have 1/2 finder range, so if you want to do honeycomb best use 40 x 40
    Indoor mining has a very low SR (mostly around 5%) but if you find a claim it will be bigger.
    FOMA : http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/fo...ing-Chart-VU10
    Hell : http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/fo...l-Mining-Chart
    Monria : http://www.monria.com/forum/threads/...ribution.3567/
    Arkadia UG http://arkadiaforum.com/threads/arka...ing-map.10460/

    WHAT to mine with a bit of skills.
    If your a beginner there are not much choices yet and you will hit mostly lyst, belk, oil, etc.... depending in what area you are mining.
    So here again its very important that you go to an area where you can find a lot to get skills faster.
    Check area's / depths / no mob area's and start the run to get skills.

    While mining and building up skills, dont forget to take the mining missions for free skills
    http://www.entropiawiki.com/Chart.aspx?chart=Mission

    You can also get daily mining missions that give you daily tokens when finished. With those daily tokens you can get finders (L) I didn't get/used them yet, but when I do I'll let you know
    For 100 daily tokens you can get the CDF Finder z10(L)
    For 200 daily tokens you can get the CDF Finder z25(L)
    For 400 daily tokens you can get the CDF Finder z40(L)


    WHAT to mine with more skills.
    By now you already should have a nice map and know where most ores/enm/trea can be found.
    So what I do is check MU's on ores/enm/trea and average sales / month, check the depth, check where to find them, equip a finder (with a number of enh to reach that average depth if needed) and go mine for those.
    OR
    Check market sales and you will see that some sales are huge.
    Check the minimum depth on LBML and try to find out what (mini) finder is best to mine that particular resource with the minimum cost

    Go with the flow (My way of mining and imo most profitable)
    Another way of mining but you will need a bigger bankroll to stock up.
    As already mentioned MA does changes economics from time to time so also what will be more or less available when mining.
    You can see that in auction or when your mining yourself since that recourse you will get more. You might get some swirls also ^^
    Since not only you are finding more but other miners also, there will be more available on auction, more pages, more undercutting.....
    So keep it stocked up, in a few days/weeks MA will alter it again, wait till % is up again, then start selling or calculate prices for smaller stacks and sell those for a higher %.
    Example :
    While mining you need to sell your iron for at least 108% to break even or make some profit.
    You normally sell your 100 stack iron for 110,26% = netto 108,49%
    Miners find a lot of it so % will go down
    So now you sell your 30 stack iron for 128,21% = netto 119,99%

    WHEN to mine
    Try to mine the same area over and over again at different day's, at different times.
    When taking notes, you will see that at different times you well get different outcomes, compare it with loot waves.
    So you didn't get lot's of typo in the morning? nor in the evening? what about in the afternoon?
    Try and see
    Do not forget that MA makes changes from time to time when suddenly you are not finding as much of what you used to at a spot at that time, call it a change in economics.

    Your weight (problem)
    When mining you will see your weight is building up to yellow ... then red so you cant run anymore.
    Make sure you have a few cars in your inventory, spawn 1, fill the cars inventory with enm/ores/trea and leave it there
    Keep on doing this untill you end your run, then, once at storage, press the recall all cars button from library (make shortcut) and look in your storage.

    UNL finders or L finders?
    There are pro's and contra's on both.
    Unlimited finders are hard to get (and I mean starting from F-105 and higher).
    They do cost more when you want to buy them and you will need to Tier them up if not already done and this costs a lot.
    Advantage you have here is, when you Tiered the finder up, you can go mine at any depth you like cause they stay unlocked. You only need to put enhancers in it to change your average depth.
    Limited finders are much more available and easy to get.
    On the other hand you do pay MU every time you buy 1 and and you can only use enhancers on them when you unlocked the slots.
    Enhancers will break a lot faster on L finders.

    Also decay on UNL finders is a lot less.
    For example let's go try to find gold with the average depth of 822
    Each drop with the F-106 (without enhancers) will cost you 0,01799 Ped
    Assuming you pay 200% for 1 depth enhancer, it will cost 0,80 *200% = 0,016 ped / drop (estimated 1 break after 100 drops), they will break random in any slot even when using 10 depth enhancers in 10 different slots
    So using the F-106 (with enhancers) costs a totall of 0,03399 Ped / drop in decay
    So using the Terramaster 5 (without enhancers) will cost you 0,04125 Ped / drop in decay

    So its up to you what finder you will be using and how you want to go mining.
    Some prefer UNL, some L

    Most finders will tell you that they need 10 probes/enmatter - 20 probes/ores - 30 probes/treasure
    CHECK this before you buy another finder.
    Some finders use a lot more.
    Have a look at this Ziplex C50 (L)



    Those are called pre-amped finders.

    PRE-amped finders



    This finder is using 30 probes / drop, so when going for ore only, you are paying 20 probes/drop (so 1 ped) + a extra 10 probes (so 0,50 ped) + decay of the finder.
    That brings us back to most finders that uses 20 probes + level 2 amp that also costs 1,50 ped / drop BUT you are looking much deeper to find something without depth enhancers.
    Most findings I got where all modest, so bigger claims on a hit.


    Depth Enhancers
    Adding enhancers to your finder(s) will let you find deeper stuff.
    Every level you unlocked on your finder will allow you to go 7,43% deeper, so this is different on every finder
    For the F-105, with a average depth of 522,4 putting a enhancer into (any slot) will give you another 38,2 depth, enhancers in any 2 different slots will give you 38,2 * 2 = 74,4 depth more
    For the F-106, with a average depth of 582,1 putting a enhancer into (any slot) will give you another 43,3 depth, enhancers in any 2 different slots will give you 43,3 * 2 = 86,6 depth more

    You can check the depth of all enm/ores/trea at LBMB but when checking this with your own statistics it might be different.
    This is because you might be mining on a different planet and/or different server.
    Remember the squares on the LMBM map? Those are the different servers you are mining on.

    Enhancers do play a big role in your return.
    Example :
    When I go mining for zinc in "my" spot ... my best return for zinc and average is F-106 + lvl 1+2 enhancers.
    A friend, also equipped with the F-106 on "his" spot for zinc, but on another server, is having a better return and average with lvl 1+2+3 enhancers.

    Another way to use depth enhancers is :
    If I'm in a zone with lots of high mu resources, that mostly have a deeper average depth, I use a lot more enhancers.
    Now let's check this for megan with an average depth of 920 and was found (so far) at even at 1518 depth
    In this case I use my F-106 with 8 depth enhancers. This makes me find anything between 600-1350 depth ^^
    With using more depth enhancers you don not only go deeper BUT you are also making your search "bubble" bigger.

    I'm still testing the breakrate off depth enhancers on my F-106 and here are some results

    F-106 + 4 enhancers (755,2 depth)
    Found resources between 516 - 1091 deep

    Enhancers counted @200%. Drop price finders are without MU

    If you are mining dual : 0,0179698 / drop + decay F-106 = 0,0359598
    If you are mining ores : 0,016 / drop + decay F-106 = 0,03399
    If you are mining enmatters : 0,0104348 / drop + decay F-106 = 0,0284248

    Compare this with :
    Terramaster 4 (depth 741,3): 0,0372 / drop * ... MU you payed
    Ziplex TK220 (depth 776,1) : 0,0396 / drop * ... MU you payed

    At this depth the F-106 is most eco on enm/ore/dual

    This mount testing the F-106 + 5 depth enhancers

    Why the tests?
    I want to know where the breaking point is to use L finders starts getting more eco than the UL F-106

    Speed enhancers
    Speed enhancers will help you get a claim faster (think pvp) where it can be dangerous ^^
    If you get a claim in pvp, use them, put bits and pieces in your invent and jump out regular (NOT to the closest TP). Even if you left pvp you still can get shot + looted in the next 30 sec and some just wait till you jump to TP.

    Range enhancers
    When your mining with UNL finders, you will prefer to use depth enhancers
    If you prefer using all kinds of different (L) finders (for all kinds of different depths) you might be looking for range enhancers cause they will give you 1% range more.
    So let's have a look at the Ziplex TK320 Seeker that can be used to find petonium (average depth 850)



    As most finders the range here is 55 m (indoor 27,5 m)
    So every range enhancer you use on it will give you 1% range more so 0,55 m (indoor 0,275 m)
    Because you are using enhancers on a (L) finder they are breaking faster also.
    Some might like this way of mining some dont, imo its very expensive this way.

    Refining your resources

    Before selling your resources you best refine them.
    There are many different refiners on the market so what to choose?
    I would strongly advice to go for the Transformer T-105 (hard to get and high TT value of 75 ped) OR
    the Imperium Resource Refiner B1 with only a TT value of 6 ped
    Both are cheapest to refine resources ingame.

    There are even more better refiners but those will cost you a few K peds so up to you if they are worth it.

    Check them out on entropiawiki

    When refining Nutrio's and ME you should try to wait till you can get K of each since you get 1001 per 1K refined.

    Thanks to Christer Toad and Vi for this very handy list to refine ores from the McGrangust list


    SELLING your enm / ores / treasure
    I know this can be a pain, but with patience you will get there.
    My first rule is, NEVER TT ANYTHING (and no I do not have 100k peds to stock up).
    I NEVER sell under 110% MU, this only doesn't count for oil.
    Even when you mostly find low MU ores/enm/trea you can sell them.
    The good part is that many need small amounts for tiering up or daily crafting, so its worth putting stacks on auc like 100 lysterium ingots.
    Do I hear you say and pay fee every time? Yes ^^
    Assuming you have 300 ped lyst and usuall you TT it ... so you can go mining again .... to TT more since the market is already flooded.... and loose peds, then go mining again ... TT more .... loose more
    Put 100 lyst on auction = 3 ped @ 133,33% = 4 ped, you pay 0,54 ped fee so after sales (and it will sell) you get 3,44. You made 0,44 ped profit.
    Not really much you think now?
    True BUT 300 ped lyst = 100 times 0,44 ped = 44 ped profit in total, so that is what you'll loose every time you TT 300 ped lyst.
    Don't start putting up 10 x 100 lyst on auction, then the risk of not selling and paying fee is high, just try to sell 1 or 2 stacks of 100.

    Do not start undercutting other miners ... some do count there return and selling for less will get you bankrupt (seen it happening a lot) unless you love to deposit a lot, and mostly it ends with selling there mining skills so they can go do something else.

    If MU is to low to sell, keep it in storage and DO NOT SELL.
    The only thing a miner needs is a finder and bombs, look at the gear a hunter needs.... so you should be able to stock up and have patience, MU will go up again at some point.
    I even helped miners that only had 500 ped to start

    Study auction for % on resources or try sweating to make ME with all the force nexus you have mined while you await sales

    At some point the same ores will be stocking up depending where you mine and your stack will be getting bigger and bigger .....
    Once you see you are making progress and you are making profits, try to sell those stacks when they reached 5-10-15-20K, Auction fee is a lot lower when selling huge stacks and you still can make some profit on them so always better than TT them.
    Doing this will free up some peds and you get the repair costs back

    Traders
    I strongly advice NOT to sell to traders/resellers. Doing this will give you almost no profit.
    Better is to make small stacks and sell those, even when you pay fee you will gain more than selling to traders.
    They try to buy at very low % (some will even just pay you 100,50%) and will even undercut you when selling what they have. If your resources are not worth more to them, DO NOT SELL.
    So by selling that cheap to them, you make yourself poor or even bankrupt and are making them rich.
    How to know if some 1 is a craters (who buy's resources) or a trader/reseller?
    Log in to Entropia Life and have a look at the buyer his profile and if it's not visible, then it is also a trader/reseller most of the time but hiding his/her skills so nobody can see that.

    Extractors
    For extractors its important that decay is as less as possible off course to keep your costs down.
    Check here for Efficiency/pec and what is affordable for you. http://www.entropiawiki.com/Chart.aspx?chart=Excavator

    Using amps or not
    That is completely up to you and your peds.
    Using amps will let you find more on a hit so you safe time using them.
    When you go mining in the same area on a regular basis (and I know this sounds crazy) you will get a feeling how the run is going to be.... So if at the start my HR (HitRating) is great, I might put an amp on and see how it goes

    Amps efficiency can be check at the following page :
    http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/fo...ing-Amplifiers
    Efficiency will help you find bigger claims.

    What does a drop cost with a certain amp?
    http://www.entropiawiki.com/Chart.as...inderAmplifier
    So on each drop you need to add the decay of the amp to know the exact price of drop. If you are looking for enm/ores/trea at the same time, you need to multiply 1 drop cost by 3

    I love to play with numbers in excell also so I can find every run in it, if you do so you will see that some area's will mostly give you a nice return. Use your amps wisely ^^

    Amps on Monria,FOMA or HELL ?
    Those places have a HR under 5% so count yourself .... would you gamble on it?
    Here a list where you can check decay/drop http://www.entropiawiki.com/Chart.as...inderAmplifier

    Some have been asking me why I do not use amps (or rarely use them), so this is why

    If I do use them its mostly the D-class or lvl 8 so let's calculate with that 1 but you can use the same calculation with any other amps off course.

    Each drop (ores only) will cost you 4 ped so + 1 ped drop from probes gives us a drop of 5 ped
    On a hit you will get (mostly) an ample, this is between 12-18 ped (TT value) so an average of 15 ped ^^
    This means you need a Hit Rate of 33,33% to break even (again TT value)

    33,33% Hit Rating is not very rare but also not very common and i call it the magic number, again it's all about the zone you are in and how HR is. Knowing the zone very good gives you a high advantage.
    So you need a hit every 3th drop (average), if not you are loosing (hard)

    Using this in a zone where there are mostly high MU ores (and I mean over 150%) will give you more certainty of your return and yes those zones exist but are very rare

    Mining on other planets and transporting all recourses

    Transporting your resources in a quad or sleipnir is dangerous so do not do that.
    Transporting them in equus or privateer is also dangerous, so best do not do that neither.
    Only transport them in a privateer or MS that use a website so you can log off on warp and follow on the website when they arrived safely in the space station.
    Here are the links so you can talk to the captain on warp or arrival
    http://www.efa.ms/ and / or http://kronan-ms.info/webchat/

    We all know that warping like this costs money so how can you minimize the costs to get all your resources safely to caly cause economics are best there cause you will also have to pay 7 ped to TP from Caly SS to the planet it self.

    There are 3 options :
    1 : You take a VIP warp that will cost you 25 ped (if the MS is already stationed at the planet your on) and then pay 7 ped for the TP to get on the planet caly.
    2 : You try to get more passengers on the warp by shouting so you can split the 25 ped warp, then pay the 7 ped TP to get on the planet caly.
    3 : Put your resources on auction on the planet you have been mining for 24 hours, dont forget to write down the fee. Jump into your quad, fly to caly (this costs about 2 ped landing fee + 0,10 ped decay on truster and about 1 ped oil). After arriving on caly, and after 24 hours the resources you placed on auc will be in your won items if they didn't sell. So check your won items, click on them and now you can let MA deliver them for 2 ped (up to 60 kg) to caly

    Still working on a list of weight/transport prices but this is what I have so far up to :
    60 kg = 2 ped
    73,80 kg = 2,43 ped
    79,80 kg = 2,63 ped
    100 kg = 3,30 ped
    120 kg = 3,96 ped
    137,50 kg = 4,53 ped
    145,20 kg = 4,79 ped
    159,90 kg = 5,27 ped
    180 kg = 5,94 ped
    200 kg = 6,60 ped
    240 kg = 7,92 ped
    300 kg = 9,90 ped
    320 kg = 10,56 ped
    333,40 kg = 11 ped

    So here again count count count.

    And finally Profits or Losses

    My mining runs are about 100-600 ped each, depends on how the area was in the past and MU's. Do a few runs on different hours on the same spot at least 5-10 times to get a feeling with that area.
    When getting a Hit Rating of +33% I start using amps
    Watch out if your HR is much lower as usual, some 1 might have mined there just before you came so best leave.

    You do not need high skills to make profit when you count and have patience
    You will not get rich fast (unless you are extremely lucky)
    Never see 1 run as profit/loss, count and make averages, you will get lucky from time to time
    Getting globals/hof's doesn't mean your making profit
    There will be bad and great times
    But first off all COUNT and use your brains when mining
    Only knowledge will make you rich

    And most of all :
    HAVE FUN

    Selling your enm / ores / treasure
    I know this can be a pain, but with patience you will get there.
    My first rule is, never TT anything (and no I do not have 100k peds to stock up).
    Even when you mostly find low MU ores/enm/trea you can sell them.
    The good part is that many need small amounts for tiering up, so its worth putting stacks on auc like 100 lysterium ingots.
    Do I hear you say and pay fee every time? Yes ^^
    Assuming you have 300 ped lyst and usuall you TT it ... so you can go mining again .... to TT more since the market is already flooded....
    Put 100 lyst on auction = 3 ped @ 133,33% = 4 ped, you pay 0,54 ped fee so after sales (and it will sell) you get 3,44. You made 0,44 ped profit.
    Not really much you think now?
    True BUT 300 ped lyst = 100 times 0,44 ped = 44 ped profit in total, so that is what you'll loose every time you TT 300 ped lyst.

    .
    Thanks for this handout.

    But in regards of selling the stuff on auction, you write it down nicely, but is it also true in practise?

    to place a 3 ped stack of lyst for 4 ped is nice, but do they ALWAYS sell?
    If not, it costs you 0,50 ped per unsold stack.
    So if you get 300 ped worth of lyst, you have 100 stack's that costs 50 ped total to place on auction.
    I consider not selling a stack a considerable risk of 0,50 ped per 3 ped stack.

    Hiya

    For me so far it has sold all the time, mining again for a few months now. It might change now if many read this and do it also lol, but it's really worth the try imo.
    Even for melchi I put stacks of 100 and 300 on auc and they sell also and many others.

    lol, yes, you just dug your own (auction) grave as now we are all going to do that!

    The potential not selling the small stacks has always prevented me to do so.
    But yes indeed, if they do sell, then it's absolutely worth the effort.

    Since when did enhancers get an average of 1000 drops? In my experience you're lucky to get 50; biggest waste of peds ever.

    I use them all the time on the F-106 and they hardly break. I rarely need to craft them.

    But let's assume they break every 50 drops, it still would only cost 2,927 pec / drop compared to the 4,125 pec decay of the Terramaster 5

    Maybe they've changed, or maybe they do better on U finders, I think I only tried them on L.

    However, I believe there is evidence to show that the tt decay of the finder is calculated into the claim size, so this could change things.

    For sure I'm gonna count the breaks from now on.

    I only used (L) finders a few times, so cant say if it makes a difference.

    I'm still tiering up my F-106 (so far only T4) and use the Terramaster 5 when mining for gold now, since I need T6 on the F-106 first to get at a descend depth

    They break much faster on (L) Finders.

    TT of decay is included.

    This was shown when trying to find II's ( or might have been I's), very rare with a high decay finder, common with the tt finder.
