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. | |\________________ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ {WHM} _ | 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. | |\ | \___________________________________________________________________________ |_____________________________________________________________________________| #########################################################################[MIN]# _______________________________________________________________________________ \ \ \ \__________________________________________________________/ / / / \ \ \| |/ / / \ \ | The Mines | / / \ \ | | / / \ \| "All too often, miners underestimate |/ / \ | the economic strength they have." -Arthur Scargill | / \| ______________________________________________________|/ _________| | | ___________| | / |/There are two mines in the game: the Ganache Mine, which is accessible first, | and the Mt.
