I gave my secondary hero the Plunder Mine and Destroy Mine abilities.

Then I walked up to a mine. Nothing happened.

Skipped a turn and tried to visit it with full movement. Nothing.

I even tried selecting it from the ability window.

What am I missing? How do you activate the skill?

    Did you check in your adventure spells? I think that might be the place where they put abilities like that. Commented Jan 4, 2012 at 21:40
  • @murgatroid This is prbly the answer (not at home right now, can't check). For some reason I didn't think of checking the spells for that. If you make it an answer, I can mark it as answer. Commented Jan 5, 2012 at 11:42

You may have to find the Plunder Mine ability in the spell book and cast it as a spell when you are standing at a mine.


You need to have 100 movement points to use this ability.

From this guide:

Plunder Mine – The Hero consumes 100 movement points to plunder an enemy mine, immediately taking 3 days worth of productions in advance. The mine stops production for the plundered days. If one of your secondary heroes has some spare time and ability points you might have some fun with this, but, mainly, don’t waste your time. Reputation: Neutral. Active adventure ability. Mana cost: 0. Requires: Hero lvl 5.
