From Dwarves! - Minecraft Roleplaying Server

Excavators, prospectors and miners toil deep underground. Some search for rare ores and gems, whilst others work to fulfill the designs of their leaders. They are often overlooked, but their presence is a necessity in many aspects of Dwarven society.

Miners are built for the underground, with access to skills that allow them to ease their endless burden. Their skills allow them to see in the dark, walk faster on stone, and mine quicker.

Miners are also able to find custom ores and gemstones while excavating stone. These ores can be processed by a Smith in to many different types of metals, whilst a Jeweller can make use of the gemstones, making Miners a much-desired profession to have around.

Tools And Equipment

When journeying into the mines, or deep underground, a level of safety is required. Whilst most Miners would not begin mining in a full suit of armour, they may have some close by in case some dangers are revealed.

Similarly, plenty of pickaxes, light sources and food are usually on hand. Heavier, longer-lasting pickaxes can be created by the plates and slabs that Smiths can forge.

Miners In-Game

Although the Miner, no matter how it is played, will revolve around the act of digging, the circumstances beyond this can change substantially. Some Miners may purely mine the nodes that are found around the maps, yielding specific resources. Some may devote themselves to the back-breaking labour that is associated with mass excavations; digging tunnels, chambers and what not underground.

Other Miners may delight in the joys of exploring the underground regions and, whilst digging and mining is still part of their skillset, they may not rely on it as heavily as other Miners.

They will often band together in groups in order to complete truly large-scale works of excavation, or rise to the challenge when huge amounts of material is needed for large building projects.
