Mining Barges - Ore Group

Post by alumoi » Sun Mar 25, 2018 7:43 am

Got my barge's mining skills up to 8 but I can't find anything over group 5 when mining. Is there a list of ore groups and what one can expect to get from each group?

Haven't seen a list yet, but there are unproductive gaps in the levels.
Try a different galaxy for a while - they have different ore groups and you may get something elsewhere.

Just for balance, there are resources at every level, but you may need to move around from system and galaxy to make good use of these. But every new level opens up more and more resources all the way to the top level.

There are no 'dead' levels where new resources do not open up. You just need to figure out WHERE to go mine. Plus of course there is an added issue of the resource your looking for (and have level to Mine) must BE there in the field spawned at the time :)

As I say, whilst this reply may not shed light it is there for balance.

I'm surprised that Barge captains have not started a Level / Resource list yet :)

Coops, that's inside info, we don't share it with the plebes :P
Now back to the topic. You're saying that, as with normal mining, not all asteroids have high level resources, right?
So it's mine, update spreadsheet, rinse & repeat until there's a pattern.

I'm mining barge level 8 and have mined and recorded every asteroid in Furnace and found nothing over ore group 5.
Can anyone tell me how many navigation skill points I need to jump from furnace to sphere or Verec-Per etc
