    Soon as you learn Mine/Herb skill you will get a lightbulb from Cole or Saffron. They want you to collect certain item. If you have mine skill he want you to get (special ore), if you have herb collecting skill she wants you to get (special herb). Head to the portal located at Ardentmill (bottom right corner)


    Go back to Cole or Saffron after collecting (special ore) or (special herb). Another quest should appear, this time they want you to create (special plate) or (special oil). To create those item you need to get (special ore) or(special oil) and Low Grade Varnish (Mine) or Low Grade Oil Bottle (Herb Collecting). You can buy those two item from the Merchant.

    -Mining/Herbalism takes 1 fatigue.

    -Disassembling/Combing takes 3 fatigue.

    You can also decrease your fatigue with 2 different ways:

    -You can buy a pot from a npc in meister village to lower your fatigue.

    There is two different kinds of Fatigue potions. Small fatigue potion heals 30 fatigue points for 100,000 mesos. Large fatigue potion heals 50 fatigue points for 300,000 mesos. You can only drink fatigue potion three times a day.

    • Note: Red Bar is your Fatigue and Blue Bar is your Profession Skill Exp
