In order to be inventive I will have to keep using my Dragon Pick.

What is the best ore to mine to level it. Level 60 ores that it is matched to or slower level 90's?

Or just keep going to uncharted isles(or have they been nerfed)?

I do have a nice Elder Pick to hang over the mantle gathering dust :(

A Elder Pick +5 is going to ALOT faster than an Augmented Dragon pick. Its better to turn that pick into a Crystal or Imo Pick, then Earth and Song.

Are, well , you see, there are these things called quests. Now you youngsters with you game consoles and millions more available synapses can 'walk' through them.

But alas Priff is not for me.

So........... Dragon Pick it is and currently I am having to syphon xp as well

That is some 'down date' they have added.

So the question still is : in this imperfect world what do I mine, if anything at all?

I hate quests, always have and always will for the past 15 years. I still got on the wiki and went through the quests to get e/s before update. Worth it.

You could just buy an elder rune +5 for like 4m, dropping fast. Buy a base elder rune pick for like 300kish and significantly better than dragon.

Or if stubborn, mine 2 dark, 2 light anima, smelt to make 2 elder rune bars, make base pickaxe. Won't take too terribly long even with dragon pick.

I get what you are saying but why not use both picks? When you mining high level ores use the elder pick you already have and when mining lower level ores use you augmented dragon pick for invention xp. Not sure if polishing perk still works but it might be good to use it for the lower level ores.

Only you can answer which ores to mine because it depends on what you going to do with them as in use them or sell them, and for now the highest level ones or any of the new ones will be the best ones. No point in mining the old ores the market or your bank is flooded in.

Basic rune will still be in demand later on as its needed to make elder rune. Level 50 ores and level 60 pick should work well.

Golden crabs should still be best xp (only with a high level pick) but no GP value from them so again it depends on what you want.

Thanks for your input.

Although invention is not really directly trained, it is the main purpose of my mining(WC and fishing).

So I expect it will be less important unless Dragon Picks drop in price back towards the cost of a Dragon Hatchet. Or a better augmented pick become readily available in game (that is the one I can play)
