| Why This Guide Exists
|
| Why a guide specifically on mining? Can't most of this information be found
| in your huge Harvest Moon guide? Yes, most of the information here will
| eventually appear in my larger Harvest Moon FAQ, but a large portion of
| people loading an FAQ actually care about the mining - and why force them to
| download what will eventually be a 1-megabyte file just for a small portion
| of that content? That's my reasoning behind all these spin-off specialized
| guides.

| The Basics
|
| Mining is a rather simple process. To start, just grab your hammer (not your
| hoe, like in some past Harvest Moon games) and enter the mine - mine
| locations can be found under the "The Mines" section (search for [ MIN ]
| without the spaces).
|
| Descend the first staircase at the entrance to find yourself on the 1st floor
| of the mine (note that mine floors are numbered top-to-bottom, so the 1st
| floor is the closest to the surface and the 50th floor is the closest to the
| bottom). Every floor (with a few exceptions) operates in the same way: a
| large area with several characteristic items. These include:
|
|  - Stairs: Each floor contains two staircases: one going up, and one going
|    down.
|
|  - Holes: Most floors contain some holes in the ground, marked by 'X's on the
|    ground. These X's, when stepped on, become holes, plummeting you down a
|    random number of floors.
|
|  - Rocks: Rocks are the foundation of the mine. Smashing them can yield ores,
|    items or afflictions.
|
|  - Crystals: Crystals are like ores, except they house more valuable
|    treasures, called wonderfuls, and can also hold afflictions.
|
|  - Items: There are also some items that can be immediately spotted on the
|    mine floor. These can be picked up just like any other item.
|
| When you break a rock or crystal, you will sometimes find an item contained
| in the rock (this is the entire purpose of mining). If you do, you can either
| pick it up or leave it - if you leave it, it will remain on the ground
| indefinitely. You'll need to put your tool away to pick it up, and you can
| obviously only put it in your rucksack if you have space. Ores and wonderfuls
| dug up in the mine do not stack, unfortunately, although pontata roots,
| mushrooms and toadstools will.
|
| How you behave in a mine will depend on what you intend to do. Sometimes
| you'll want to get down to a certain level, sometimes you'll just want to get
| down as far as you can, and sometimes you'll just want to find a particular
| item.
|
| Regardless of what you're there to do, though, the controls remain the same.
| Break rocks to try to find ores; break crystals to try to find wonderfuls;
| to descend, get to the staircase or step on an 'X'; and to ascend and leave
| the mine, get to the up staircase and choose 'top floor'.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {SHG} _
| Stairs, Holes and Geysers
|
| There are two ways to descend the mine: stairs and holes. Stairs are the
| reliable way: when you approach the downward staircase, you'll be
| automatically transported down one level in the mine - never more than one.
|
| Oftentimes the stairs are visible immediately upon entering a level of the
| mine. However, sometimes - especially at lower floors - the staircase is
| hidden under a rock. To find it, either smash all the rocks on the level, or
| look carefully for a rock with an odd looking square below it, typically not
| bordered by any other rocks.
|
| Holes are a riskier, but often faster, way of descending. If you step on an
| 'X', you will fall down a random number of floors in the mine, between 1 and
| 9. Additionally, holes are often much more accessible than the stairs, given
| that a particular floor will contain several holes but only one staircase.
| So, holes are often a more efficient method for descending the mine - and,
| though you might suspect otherwise, holes carry no stamina penalty.
| 
| Holes have a risk associated with them, however: sometimes when you fall down
| a hole, you'll land on a geyser. Geysers are the opposite of holes: they'll
| propel you upwards a random number of floors, oftentimes sending you higher
| than the floor you started on.
|
| Geysers become more frequent at lower floors, making it more difficult to get
| to the deepest sections of the mine.
|
| Ascending to the top of the mine can also be done by simply touching the
| upwards staircase: you'll receive the option to automatically ascend all the
| way to the surface.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {AFL} _
| Afflictions
|
| "I think I have the black lung, pop." Zoolander quotes aside, ores and
| wonderfuls aren't the only things that pop up when you break a rock or
| crystal. There are multiple afflictions that come in the form of different
| colored gasses. These afflictions will affect your efforts to descend the
| mine:
|
|    Red : Stamina loss (your character loses stamina points - 20 for 'lost a
|          little stamina', 50 for 'lost a lot of stamina')
|   Blue : Temporary paralysis (inability to move for around 10 game-minutes).
|  Green : Stamina restoration (your character regains around 300 stamina
|        : points).
| Purple : Temporary confusion (joystick directions no longer map to the
|        : character's direction, and randomly change).
|  Black : Blindness (the visibility around your character drastically
|        : shrinks).
|  White : Slowness (your character's movement speed is severely restricted) or
|        : Quickness (your character's movement speed is drastically raised).
| Yellow : Stamina restoration (your character regains around 100 stamina
|        : points).
|
| You can get rid of a timed affliction (blue, purple, black, white) by
| changing floors, either by stepping on an 'X' or ascending/descending a
| staircase.
|
| Afflictions will spread outward from the initial location in various
| patterns and at different speeds. Oftentimes you'll be able to avoid the
| affliction before it hits you - just run away as soon as you hear the sound
| of a gas spewing. Unfortunately you'll likely also miss the stamina
| restoration gasses, but that's a small price to pay.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {OAW} _
| Ores and Wonderfuls
|
| The two main items that can be found in the mine are ores and wonderfuls.
| Both are only accessible by smashing apart rocks (for ores) and crystals (for
| wonderfuls). When a rock or crystal is smashed, an ore or wonderful may
| appear on the ground for you to pick up.
|
| Ores and wonderfuls themselves are very different from the way ores and gems
| have been obtained in past Harvest Moon games. If I could intalicize this
| next sentence, I would: ores and wonderfuls, by themselves, are essentially
| worthless. They have very low shipping values and cannot be used for tool
| upgrades, jewelry creations or effective gifts.
|
| Instead, ores and wonderfuls hold within them minerals and gems. It's as if
| the true "identity" of the ore or wonderful is hidden from you, and can only
| be established by a gifted refiner - and conveniently, there is a gifted
| refiner on the island: Mira.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {APR} _
| Appraisal
|
| Every ore and wonderful houses an item. Sometimes the item is of a greater
| value, but sometimes the item is junk. The item an ore or wonderful holds
| corresponds to the color/type of the ore or wonderful: for example, Gold Ore
| contains either Gold (the treasure) or scrap iron (junk). Wonderfuls have
| three different levels of treasure: for example, a red-colored wonderful can
| contain a ruby (high-value), a spinel (medium-value), a rose stone
| (low-value) or red glass (junk).

| So how are you to tell what your ores and wonderfuls are? That's where Mira
| comes in. Mira works at the blacksmith's shop and is a specialist at
| appraising your ores and wonderfuls. She'll even do it free of charge. To
| get Mira to refine your materials, talk to her and choose 'Refine' - don't
| just talk to her with the item in your hands or you'll inadvertently give it
| to her.
|
| Mira will let you know what the item truly is and will give it back to you:
| after that, the item will be identified in your rucksack as the mineral or
| gem instead of an ore or wonderful. After that, you can use it for jewelry
| or tool upgrades. It will also make a better gift, and the shipping value
| will be much higher.
|
| This presents a minor problem with mining though: wouldn't you hate to go to
| the mines and grab 8 wonderfuls, only to find out that they're all glass? Or
| to pick up a bunch of gold ore, only to find out they're all scrap? Luckily,
| there is a way to identify the value of the item held within an ore or
| wonderful while out mining: sparkles. When you uncover an ore or a wonderful,
| it may sparkle on the ground. If an ore sparkles, it contains the
| corresponding (iron, copper, silver, gold) mineral; if a wonderful sparkles,
| it contains a gem. Which gem the wonderful contains is indicated by the
| number of sparkles it has: a three-sparkle wonderful contains the most
| valuable gem of that color, whereas a one-sparkle wonderful contains the
| least valuable gem (though a gem nonetheless).
|
| However, in order to use the mineral or gem in tool upgrades or jewelry, and
| in order to have it sell for a higher price, it still must be manually
| refined by Mira. The sparkles are only there to help you identify what each
| gem or mineral is while mining.

|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {MOL} _
| Moles
|
| Sometimes when you're mining, you'll come across a little mole in the field.
| Make sure PETA isn't watching, then smash the mole with your hammer. If you
| succeed, the mole will cough up an item: typically just a mushroom or a
| toadstool, but sometimes something more valuable, like a Bodigizer. How the
| mole got his hands on one of those is beyond me.
|
| Interestingly, moles are only found on floors ending in the number 5. They
| have been observed dropping five different items: mushrooms, toadstools,
| pontata roots, Stay Awake and Bodigizer.
|

| Why Mine?
|
| So, there's this great big part of the game called mining where you can
| dig up random stuff from the ground. So what, why bother?
|
| There are several useful reasons to make use of the mine:
|
|  - Cheaper tool upgrades. While you can upgrade your tools by simply
|    purchasing new ones at the General Store, it's a good deal cheaper to
|    upgrade them at the blacksmith's shop - but, he requires you to supply
|    the mineral for the upgrade.
|
|  - Jewelry. In order to make jewelry, you must supply the minerals and gems.
|    And since there's nowhere else to get them except the mine, you're locked
|    into that option if you want to make jewelry.
|
|  - Profit. Mining in Tree of Tranquility is a notably profitable task. Just
|    picking up a few Coppers and Silvers can yield a quick 500G, and your
|    profits will soar even higher if you get far enough down to start digging
|    up some gemstones, which sell for everything from 170G (Peridot) to 1000G
|    (Diamond).
|
|  - Power Berry and Pontata Roots. One of the game's five Power Berries is at
|    the bottom of the first (Ganache) mine, and the mines are also the only
|    place you can find Pontata Roots, a key ingredient in the medicine
|    category of recipes (Bodigizer, Bodigizer XL, Cold Medicine, Stay Awake
|    and Super Stay Awake).
|
|  - Completion. One of the items accessible on the information screens is a
|    "Gem List", which contains a list of all the possible products obtained
|    from the mines. If you're a completionist, you'll want to complete this
|    too.
|
|  - Meeting People. Every islander has an 'introduction event' that you must
|    experience before they will begin to go about their daily routine. For
|    a few islanders - most notably Calvin - this event happens on the 10th
|    floor of Ganache Mine.
|
|  - King Fish. The lake at the bottom of Ganache Mine is one of only two
|    places to find the elusive King Fish, and is the only one accessible
|    for the majority of the game (the other location requires you to complete
|    the goddess revival).
|
|  - Goddess Recipes. Two items required for the goddess recipes - a Blue
|    Wonderful and a Lapis Lazuli - are only obtainable within the mines.
|
|\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {DTM} _
| Descending the Mine
|
| If your goal is to descend pretty deep into the mine, here are a few tips:
|
|  - Bring recovery items. Stamina will be a major threat to your descent, and
|    you'll be kicking yourself if you get down to the last 5 floors and run
|    out of stamina. The best items for stamina recovery are Bodigizer XL,
|    any type of Pizza or any type of Buckwheat dish (except for Cocktails
|    or Chips). The best purchaseable stamina recovery items are Bodigizer XL
|    (520G from the Clinic), Southern Omelette (550G from Pineapple Inn) and
|    Sweet Yam Cake (660G from the Fall/Winter markets).
|
|    Be careful using mushrooms to restore stamina. They work, but they also
|    increase your fatigue, raising the odds that you'll pass out or have to
|    stumble home way too slowly.
|
|  - Start early. You don't want to stay there all night and into the next day
|    (unless you brought some Super Stay Awake), so get there early.
|
|  - Plan to spend the whole day. You never know how long it will take you to
|    get as far down as you want to go, or how much stamina you'll have to use
|    in the process of getting down there, so don't leave any chores - like
|    watering the crops or feeding the animals - for when you get back.
|
|  - Empty your rucksack of non-consumeables. You'll be kicking yourself if you
|    come across five Diamonds but only have four spots in your rucksack. Keep
|    only food and your hammer in your rucksack if you plan to bring home a big
|    haul.
|
|  - Use the holes first, then the stairs. For the first few levels, the holes
|    are a great way to get down fast. But after about 2/3rds of the way down,
|    you'll find they lead to geysers more often, making them too risky. You'll
|    almost never encounter a hole that takes you all the way to the bottom
|    either, so don't plan to just use holes and assume eventually you'll get
|    lucky enough to go all the way down.
