Easy Mining and Easy Ore
There are a number of ways to improve the productivity of mining pore to maximize the Elder Scrolls 5 - Skyrim. The first way is instead of exploiting the way the game tells you, by pressing A or X, you should equip your pickaxe as you would a sword and you will be able to hit the rock twice rapidly. You can even equip two pickaxes at once and duel weild, for even faster mining. Normally when using your pickaxe to mine for ore, you get only two ore and rarely hidden grenades. To recieve three ore each time with a much higher chance of getting a Garnet you should let your pickaxe hit the section tree times then stop it, usually X will back you out, when you start mining. You'll get 1 ore. This process can be repeated two more times for a total of three ore instead of the usual two.
