Ore deposit is an environmental object found in Dragon's Dogma.
Ore deposits are the primary source of all rocks and mineral ores in Dragon's Dogma.


The Mining Process

For a list of ores see Category:Minable

Throughout the world, occasionally along rocky areas, there might be an ore deposit. It's possible to identify mineable rocks by looking closely at them: if they have small stones attached, they can be mined.

While carrying a Pickaxe or Light Pickaxe in the Arisen's inventory, ore deposits may be mined by pressing the action button when prompted to do so. Pawns carrying a Pickaxe or Light Pickaxe will also extract ore from a deposit should they choose to do so.

Materials can be gathered from the ore deposit until it runs out, generally yielding between one and five ore samples. Ore veins take 3 to 7 days to respawn, depending on the location and type of material (more precious ores takes longer).

Oddly Ore Deposits in The Watergod's Altar may yield a Priceless Artifact.

  • In addition to the pickaxe, several other methods yield ore from deposits:
  • Exploits :
    • Ore deposits can be mined indefinitely using a save/reload glitch. Steps: Partially mine the deposit but do not completely mine out the deposit; then save the game, and Godsbane; on restarting the ore deposit will be renewed. This process is useful for rare ores.
    • Ore can also be mined quickly by initiating the mining action, immediately going into the inventory menu and selecting either a Dragon’s Spit or Throwblast to hold. When the mining animation ends, the Arisen will drop the item and thus strip mine the ore deposit without further need to initiate another mining animation. More importantly, this doesn't use up the explosive item, so it can be used multiple times when mining several ore deposits.
