Miner is available at Level 12.
Once a day, Miner gives you 100 coins and 200 XP plus additional XP for rocks adjacent to Miner. Click on his place and you’ll see how much time is left for the next bonus. You can also click on “Play Miner’s Game” which gives a separate timer to play his mini-game (more on that in a bit).
Note: Clicking on Miner will highlight those rocks that will give you the additional XP. Not green = not adjacent = no bonus!
TIP: If you’ve put Miner on the farthest right side of your village you will not be able to see all the highlighted wood/rocks/ plots/pots because their menus will take up the right side of the screen (even if you zoom in all the way). Slide your finger from right to left anywhere on the screen (should be a short slide) and then click on either of their houses. Tada! The menu should move over beyond the right side of your village now allowing you to see all the highlights!!
TIP: Rocks gifted from friends do not give a bonus and therefore do not turn green as seen above.
Once the timer runs out, Miner’s ready to give up the goods!!
Adjacent rocks will give you more XP!! Note there is a limit to which adjacent rocks give XP. Remember tap on his house to see which ones are adjacent. Not green = no bonus!
Here’s a breakdown of the rock bonuses. Bigger and Mossy is better!!
Thanks to Nicole Simon for teaching me how to take screenshots of graphs or anything else for that matter. She also gathered most of the numbers for Timber and Miner along with Laci Rogers.
This is the best arrangement I could come up with to yield the most XP.
- 17 Large Stone Combo + 3 3-Stone Combo + 14 Small Stone + regular bonus = 1890 XP!!
When you see the bouncing pick, Miner’s game is ready!
Let’s play Miner’s Game!!
Note: another timer. This one tells you when you can play again for a reward. Miner’s game is available as follows:
- Level 12 – 14: every 6 hours
- Level 15 – 17: every 8 hours
- Level 18 – 20: every 10 hours
- Level 21 and on: every 12 hours
Thanks, Sherry Fischer-Wiskin for the intervals!
Miner has 4 mines that you can play with. They increase in reward as you unlock them:
- Miner’s Mine – comes with Miner at Level 12
- Deeper Mine – Level 15
- Scary-looking Mine – Level 18
- Golden Mine – Level 21
There is no reason to choose any of the other mines once you’re at Level 21. So many more jewels in the Golden Mine!!
We’ll cover the Golden Pick in our Smurfberries Section (hint: well Worth The Berries (WTB)!!!)
Thanks to Bud Potter for the info on the levels above!
TIP 1: Tap in between rocks and you can break up to 4 rocks at a time!
