Mining Question

This may be a stupid question or one that has already been explained, but I haven't been mining in a while and I started to wonder...

When you mine ore and gems, are you missing out on ore when you get a gem? For instance, would you get more ore just mining ore by itself? Just curious since I probably need the ore more at this point.

Thanks!

It's been so long since I used that setting, that I forget.

These days, with gem prices depressed on many shards (more selling than buying), and ingots hyper-inflated, I'd probably only use the mine for gems setting if I didn't have a T-Hunter, and/or was playing on Siege.

Remember you get double resources in Fel, if you are really in need of the ore. Delucia and Cove are nice guard zone spots for mining.

Yes luckily I remember that much. I get the mining maps in felucca where I turn my BODs in so I can get lots! I just didn't need the silly gems. hehe Thank you!

There's a decent area in SW Brit as well. From almost due W of stables to a bit S of the canyon to the crossroads.

I thought they put in a thing where you only get half resources mining in guard zones a long time ago. Ehhh to long ago.......

I just checked and was getting 2 big ore and 22 logs per attempt in Cove. So if they did ever do that, they must have changed it back, Unless you're playing on Siege and that's how it is there.
