Ok, so i decided to make my first guide on mining and such. Over the past 2 years (how ever long ago beta 1.6 was) i have played minecraft and picked up TONS of mining techniques that are good.Keep up with me in this thread because it may be a little sloppy with the screenshots but i will do my best to provide you with the mining techniques that will help you win!Technique #1: Strip Mine. You will want to find a good spot for a strip mine. Generally the location of Y:11 is good or anything below that. How a strip mine works is you dig in a block, then skip 2 blocks, dig in, and keep it on going. Like THIS: Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfhYzSo3Njo [skip to 6 minutes in!]Mining Technique #2: QuarryIn a quarry the objective is to not get alot of ore but alot of stone. Quarrys are time consuming so I will just link you to one Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6-VPtsQWC0 Link #2: "Diamond Quarry" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieQQ-cs4RqEMining Technique #3: TheStewIn this technique i will tell you the way i mine sometimes. This technique is all screenshots and no reading.... If you think anything needs to be added ill add it, roo if you see this, maybe we can do a video together .
