Miners are responsible for the excavation and handling of Eorzea’s mineral wealth, be it ores, fossils, precious stones, or otherwise. To fully master the advanced techniques developed by the great mining nation of Ul’dah, they undertake a wide range of tasks, from the meticulous prospecting of the most minute deposits to large-scale civil engineering. Many miners subscribe to the theory of continental drift, and take for their patron deity Oschon the Wanderer.
A miner will be spending their time searching for the richest deposits of ore to mine from the ground. They can tell where the nearest deposits are, what level of ore is found within and roughly how much can be obtained by mining from that location.
