There is a bug in which the "sparkling effect" that occurs over an Ore mount happens consecutively - allowing you to infinitely receive the Bonus Exp boost provided when striking the Ore during this "sparkling animation" .
Thanks for reading. Cheers.
As you touch the ancient tablet, you feel your power and energy drain slightly from within you.
I'm having the same problem. I'm mining Banite ore and the bigger type of Banite don't show the sparkling effect above them. I do see glimpses of it at the lower side of that rock, but still barely. I havent tested if other rocks beside banite have the same problem.
I've also tried changing my graphical settings to see if it would change, but it didnt help.
That sparkling effect is intended to show you in which mode you are (manual-semi afk- afk, it's helpful if you didn't activate your stamina bar) - those aren't the rockertunities, which would grant a multiplier to progress.
Basically as long as you see sparkles you are at least in the semi-afk mode, but since you could activate a stamina bar it isn't actually needed at all.Improvements: Tooltip / (F2P) QoL v2 Quick Fixes: Invention
There are two kinds of sparkles - one is the rockertunity which appears on a different rock of the same kind which would grant you 5 or 6 times (I do not know the exact number by heart) the progress once. The other one is a sparkle active on the rock you're mining right now, which would increase your progress when you're fully there (i.e. you last click was at max 4 ticks ago) or semi-afk (you've clicked the rock within the last minute) - increasing your progress by 25 % or 12.5 % respectively - but basically just is an indication in which mode you are when you're not using the stamina bar.Improvements: Tooltip / (F2P) QoL v2 Quick Fixes: Invention
