Stones are simple mineral items usually gathered from mineral veins or deposits and often usable as an ingredient for professions (usually blacksmithing, engineering, or jewelcrafting). Stones are also a drop from earth elementals, fire elementals, and infernals, corresponding in quality to the mob's level.

Mineable stones

Five types of stone, in order of skill level required to manipulate:

  • Rough Stone - Copper Veins
  • Coarse Stone - Tin and Silver Veins
  • Heavy Stone - Iron Deposits
  • Solid stone - Mithril Deposits
  • Dense stone - Thorium Veins

Uses for stone

From each stone can be made the correspondent blasting powder (with engineering); and the correspondent grinding stone, sharpening stone, and weightstone (with blacksmithing), or the corresponding Statue (with jewelcrafting)

  • Blasting powder is used mostly for dynamite, bombs, ammo, and products like that.
  • Grinding stones are used in recipes for crafting weapons.
  • Sharpening stones are used to temporarily buff an edged weapon such as a sword or axe.
  • Weightstones are used to temporarily buff a blunt weapon such as a mace.
  • Statues (such as Rough Stone Statue, Heavy Stone Statue, etc.) create temporary healing golems.
