Hehe..
I got my first HoF before i unlocked Mineral sense as was my goal in my previous mining thread :p ..and i've had one more claim over 300 ped so far lol. Im atm lvl 35 prospector and i thought i'd try this thing again. Reaching lvl 50 will be hard as hell but getting a tower wont be easy either as it looks.

I've been using coutless of 103-105 amps and even larger since i got my first HoF (~800 gazz) and as i said, i've had one more claim over 300 ped (~1.1k zinc).

I'll try to stick to small amps during this (oa102 max).

Already been keeping record for a week or so but have not had much time for mining now with bot event n' all :p

So, what will come first, tower or Miner?

I'll use Tk320(L) finder,
I'll run in a straight line, keeping ~110m between my drops,
I'll round of everything to closest PED since i hate decimals lol.
Cost is only bombs+amps, i will not count decay on anything.


Status after 5490 bombs & 40 oa102(L), 4 oa103(L) & 14 oa104(L):

+659 PED :D

Jeez those looks more like the results of a lvl 3.5 prospector with a TK005

Hopefully it will turn around in the runs to come.

GL Fjolle. Skip the amps. Drop every 100 meters instead of 110 :silly2: And visit mining grounds you havent been to before ;) Advices from an Idiot with as bad luck as yours :D

If every bomb you drop has a 103-105 on it, and you don't chip, your odds are good you'll get at a small tower before miner.

If you don't use amps on the majority, ill say your odds are meh(likely not to happen unless luck is on your side).

With 102s, your odds aren't that great to get a tower, but are good for a find around 1800 ped, or 2700 ped.

(based on my own recorded data of find sizes/rarity, tho finds in the class of a 900 or 1400 ish multiplier are rare enough that i cant accurately estimate them, but i still think the odds are good based on the number of those ive found)

Best advice to give you is when there is a mining field that is giving and its a time when alot of miners are hitting also...mine like hell amp up and play until it goes away.mine every meter of that area and mine with the best finder suited to you.Mining it seems is like a faucet in this game. Its on and off.Also when you can feel your in a "lucky time"..and you know when that is...then go out and mine your favorite spots.Another thing is watch the global chat and mine in the area where that type of ores are globaling.Good luck and get that tower...
