Beginners Guide: Basic Gameplay, Mineral Types and Terrestrial Mines Explained

Hello, miners!

Terrestrial Mines are the very first type of Mine you will encounter in the Mines of Dalarnia. In these mines, oxygen is required to stay alive — if your oxygen runs out, you’re toast! Keep a note of where you see the teleport stations as you dig down, so you can escape safely with all your loot while you are still breathing. There are three additional mine types (Volcanic, Arctic, and Toxic) which will be covered in later posts.

Types of Enemies:

Terrestrial Mines contain some of the tamer enemies in the MoD universe. However, each of these enemies have specific attacks and properties which the player must adapt to. While many can be taken out with a few strategic swings of your pickaxe, remember not to get careless — even these basic enemies can take out a reckless player.

Challenge Level

As the first zones in the game, Terrestrial mines provide a proving ground for players to sharper their basic skills while grinding for the basic upgrades that will be required for the later (far less forgiving!) mine types.
