The Mining skillcape perk will no longer affect Arc crablets.

From today's patch notes. Why nerf it when it was a harmless and useful perk when mining arc crabs? What cape am I supposed to wear now? Does mining cape on max cape still work?

I thought the amount of salt was always a fixed amount after the m/s rework so I never thought the cape worked there anyway. I always get 200 salt/ 40 per crab no more no less.

I always end up with slightly more than 200 per spawn. Might've been due to Honed 5 perk, idk.

Yeah could be, I tend to just use a elder5 pick for ark as I don't think its worth the charge drain but use augmented E+S for other higher level ores. To be honest I not been to ark in last few weeks so not sure when cape started to give the extra ores.

They like nerfing content so that they can introduce newer content later and have it seem hench. The crabs however have had 2 nerfs so far, xp nerf because they where made afk again, now this. Maybe mining for dino bones on fossil island? Posts:urn bag!, hits-plats fix

Mining cape clearly says only core rocks.

Crablets aren't core rocks.

This is a justified bug fix.


Yet its not like it hurt anything plus they couldve just updated the text.

I mean theres more to mine besides ore rocks.

Im pretty sure it works on gems rocks as well so wheres that "fix".

Clearly you dont gain/lose anything from this so of course its "ok" in your eyes for this to happen.
