Mining leveling stuck

Hi there,

I'm trying to get my mining to 800 but it's stuck at 787. There are no mining quests open in the quest log and mining on Argus does not increase the skill. Gathering herbs went as expected and got to 800 couple of days ago.

Would like to know if I'm missing something here or(e) that it's a bug

Please advice.

Hello Tawenimi,

Mining at this point is indeed a bit challenging.
You should still get skill-up points from mining nodes around Broken Isles or Argus once in a while. Highest chance is from Leystone Seam, Felslate Seam and Empyrium Seam. Still at this skill level all of them have just a chance to provide a skill-up.

There are however some alternatives left for you that guarantee a skill-up:
- Mining World Quests to gather Infernal Brimstone +1 point
- Darkmoon Faire quest Rearm, Reuse, Recycle +5 points

Both options are time limited so keep an eye for the active mining World Quests and for the time when Darkmoon Faire is up.

Hope that it will help you max your mining skill soon enough.
