Tier 2 Miner

Giorgio
Currently my main PC in Rank 5 Miner (score 70); I do not understand clearly what is going to happen when he reaches Miner rank 7 (score 90)and can access Tier 2 resources. Will he:

A) Continue to gather T1 rock nodes at current rate AND tier 2 rock nodes resources
B) Gather less T1 and some T2 resources
C) Other?

Thank

A will have along with B,

B is more common to happen in monster hexes.

I could be wrong.

Usually, it will just be A. It's possible that you'll experience some of B if lots of folks with Tier 1 Skill only have been harvesting the hex.

When you harvest a node, your skill determines how many total items you will get from the node. If you only have Tier 1 Skill, you will sometimes get extra T1 items. When lots of folks with Tier 1 Skill only harvest a hex, they drive that hex's Tier 1 Resource Ratings down quite a bit. If someone with Tier 2 Skill starts harvesting that hex, they'll get more Tier 2 Resources than Tier 1 until the Tier 1 and Tier 2 Resource Ratings start to get back in balance.

It's possible that you will grow accustomed to the "extra" Tier 1 Resources you get harvesting with just a 6 Skill, so that it seems like you're getting less when you get to Skill 7.

@Nihimon,

Thank you for that clear explanation, I feel confident that I can continue focusing my XP till I reach Tier 3 miner (eventually), if I don't loose access to lower tier resources along the way. smile
