So today, I thought I'd give mining a try since its been so long since I've done that. I thought ever since I got into massive farms that I've evolved from farming n blah blah but I was bored. I wanted to do this experiment to see if mining is a feasible way of income for newer player/not as rich players. Like is it still possible for someone who doesn't have a farm/mall to make it in the EMC world. So I did this experiment for exactly, 1 Hour 27 minutes in Wasteland North East Smp8. This does include the time I went to pick my spot to mine as well. With A silk Touch pickaxe and fortune III pickaxe. The picture above shows the spoils of the short experiment.So let me break it down for you.Coal Blocks = 45r perLapis Blocks = 92r PerRedstone Block = 28r PerGold Ore = 13r PerIron Ore = 3r perDiamonds = 122r per (i did Ore buster the 11 diamond ore into 40 diamonds but with fortune three, you should atleast get 2/3 of the amount so not much less)After totaling all that in my inv for just that hour and 27 minutes, thats 17,581 Rupees, (16,800ish without ore buster on diamonds). If you did that for 7 days for the same time each day, thats 123,067 R. If you repeated the same process for 30 days, thats 492,000 Rupees. For just less than 2 hours a day... You can be in the top 25% of the community within one month.For starters you may say, we don't have such fancy pickaxes. Well they aren't expensive either to get. Vote for like 4 days or Chop a quick 2 DC of Oak Logs and you can obtain both of these pickaxes rather quickly.Getting rich isn't something that takes a smart trick to do. Just dedication. This has been another great time on the Empire. See you all for next Experiment.Edit: Fun Fact!: If you literally were dedicated enough to devote 2 hours a day to this experiment for 12 months. You would earn 5,904,000 Rupees. Thats already getting into the 5-7% Range.Edit Again: Gawadrolt pointed out an obvious correction in the math. It is very late for me and I am not thinking too clear on that part. The math has been readjusted to fit the experiment.
