The Mining tutor (real name Monlum) tells players how to mine certain ores and what pickaxes they can use at certain levels.

He will hand players a bronze pickaxe if they do not have one in their inventory or bank.


  • Upon completion of The Lost Tribe quest, the Mining tutor's dialogue is updated to inform the player about the new Dorgesh-Kaan mining spots available to the player upon completing the quest.
