Basic Drops & Economy
While mining ores in both the Overworld and the Nether, there is a chance for additional items to drop which are sellable for money, the standard server currency. From Nether ores, you can obtain Blazed Fluxes; from Overworld ores, you can obtain Basic Flux. Gemstones also occur in both worlds, all with a base drop chance of 2% from their respective ores. Additionally, ores can drop Mysterious Dust and artifacts, which require more detail than the former items. Note that using a silk touch enchanted pickaxe on ores does not yield PyroMining drops.
Both Flux types have no other use with PyroMining, and can be sold directly to
Gemstones can also be sold directly to
/mine shop, but you also have the opportunity to increase their value before you sell them, at the risk of instead decreasing their value. This gamble is referred to as “examining the quality” of the gemstone, and is done simply by right-clicking the item while holding it. If you are holding multiple of the same gemstone when you do this, only one will be identified. If your inventory is full, it will drop on the ground. An identified gemstone may then be sold to
/mine shop, having no further uses or functionalities.
PyroMining comes with a crucial custom currency known as Zeta, which is required for some passive upgrades, being able to craft Vessels (custom pickaxe enchantments), and other miscellaneous actions. Zeta is earned as you mine ores (Zeta earned scales with ore value), or in the form of Zeta Tears when dropped from Oracles (one of the miniboss types) or artifacts (an item dropped when mining). Zeta Tears are worth 10,000 Zeta when redeemed, and you can withdraw Zeta from your own balance in the
Check your Zeta balance using
/mine zeta. Zeta Tears, as an item, are exchangeable with other players and usable in other server economic means such as the auction house and chest shops.
