    The Mining World has become one of my favorite activities now in Skybounds, and I am sure a lot of you can agree with me. I have played a fair share of games, and have made up a strategy going into Mining World games.

    Strategy:
    I will usually go for an Efficiency rush, which allows me to gather lots of cobblestone early, and also getting me quick early levels. I almost always rush for meteors. I have always been a high risk high reward kind of player, so that kind of play-style might not be for you. After efficiency, I usually go for armor, to make sure if I do encounter someone, that I am prepared. If I haven't found a meteor by now, I probably died early on. After I do find a meteor, leveling is basically based on what I need. I try to get the extra XP from ores, but if it looks like I am going to get in a fight, I will adapt and maybe go for some Sharpness on my pickaxe.

    I want to hear your strategies and tips! Leave them in this thread to allow players maybe not so familiar with the Mining World to get some basics on what they should expect when they do get in there.

    Might be a bit offtopic but anyone else feels the tokens are way too low / the Tokenshop prizes are way to high? Even in a good round you cant gather more than like 140-180. 50 good rounds for an immortal Stone?

    My tactics is mostly to get quick to effi 3 haste 3 and the bonus XP. Then it depends on if people are somewhat next to me or I'm just feeling for PvP..then I go for armor, sharp etc. later on jump3 speed3

    I sometimes go for a full armor rush, but I feel I level a bit too slow for my liking.

    I can't get meteors because I play on a mac, which doesn't show coords.

    Personally I take the long game and max out my xo multiplayer first to 3x then I go for fortune then combat from there. At around 10 minutes left I'm the highest leveled player and I go on rampages killing players and taking over metors. I win most of the time at around lv 30 (1,500 player xp)

    I am pretty sure if you hold FN + F3 it shows the coords. At least that is how it was for me when I played on Mac.

    Out the gate, my first 3 things to level are Leather Armor, Finders Keepers, and Prospector. I like to go with the super pick strategy because I feel like that is how I get a large payout (last round I got 611k) with little to no risk.

    i usually get maxed out combat incase anyone wants to mess with me if so I pop them, after that I get maxed out greed, haste, efficiency and a chance to find ores from mining. this way I earn loads of stars and kills

    Get max haste and finders keepers, and drill through the stone and get massive loots! Later, upgrade pvp skills. Also, owl helps

    I have been trying out this strategy, and it has been quite successful. Might just make it my go-to strategy!

    Haste is best buff because it improves your PVP and Mining. I always die at around the 10min mark because some player stumbles onto me...
