I updated and cleaned up the page a bit and added some things from myself. --Asgaroth22 (talk) 15:43, 11 December 2015 (EST)

Stone Base Hardness

thought i was gonna get this finished before the reset but now i don't think i'll have the time. this is what i have so far. from hardest to softest:
(this general order was constructed by comparing veins immediately next to each other to compensate for hardness nodes)

quartz > basalt = granite > porphyry > flint = ochre = bloodstone = horn silver = galena > schist > feldspar > gneiss = marble > dolomite > black coal

heavy earth > ? > dolomite
granite > ? > cassiterite > ? > feldspar

seems like all(?) ores might be equally hard.

limestone, sandstone, cinnabar, chalcopyrite, malachite, black ore, silvershine, direvein, schrifterz, leaf ore.

My understanding is that hardness is determined by nodes independent from stone type but realistically other types of stone would be much harder. Also I think all Black Coal I've ran into has been quite soft.

It's both, there are hardness nodes but each stone type also has an inherent hardness which is compounded. there are many quartz deposits on -5 that i can't mine, but i can mine almost everything else. post by jorb about it: here.

cca. what level of mining ability is required to mine different levels from 1-5? Because I can mine some rock at l2 in 3 ticks but some is "You cannot even scratch the rock" with q24 pick and 66str.

New enabled

I was going to add the Pyrite spark to the list of enabled items but was unable to find the list to add it to. I learned cat gold early, but was unable to make a pyrite spark until i learned mining --(5 January 2018‎)Minion0ne
