Mining Luck Charm to Increase Chance to Find Void Ore
When crafting a mining pickaxe, use a Miner’s Charm to increase the chance of more rare drops from mining, more mining experience, or higher yield when mining. These charms are typically acquired from killing mobs or looting chests. Higher Gear Score will land higher percentages. There are currently three miner’s charms in the game:
- Steel Miner’s Charm (3%-9.4% More Mining Experience)
- Starmetal Miner’s Charm (2%-9.3% Increased Chance at Finding Rare Items)
- Orichalcum Miner’s Charm (10%-19% Increased Yield from Mining)
Using these charms when crafting will give you the Miner’s Luck perk to your pickaxe. The Miner’s Luck perk does not affect Equipment and Item drops, it only affects the drop rate of the Rare Resources associated with the resource being gathered. These rare resources will be discussed in the next section of the Complete New World Mining Guide.
You can get the Miner’s Luck perk on your mining pick, your amulet, and also your armor to stack these chances. You can also randomly gain this perk when crafting if you are lucky!
