Recently I have been leveling up my mining skill and I've noticed that the gem amount drops from gold ore veins range from 1 gem up to 4 gems from a single ore vein. This brought me up to this question:

What is the maximum amount of gems you can get from mining a single ore vein and does the Mining Luck attribute have influence on this?

    I don't know the exact maximum, but gems, the same as the ores themselves, can have the quantity received boosted by using items such as proficiency boosters.

    Update - I've gotten 6 onyx once from mining a gold node once. So at least 6!

  • Thanks for updating - How was your outfit regarding mining and general luck stats when you received the 6 gems in once?

  • Pretty sure I didn't have any specific luck modifiers at the time. Just my regular gear.
