So... this is for my Carpenter with a cramped template. I don't care about special ore or gems. A 65 you start mining Dull Copper. If I lock the skill at 64.9, to mining ore occasionally to make some tools or gather ingots for anvils or forges, will I fail to mine too often with it that low? Will I fail to smelt too often?

Edit: Eh, I might just drop mining and buy a couple 60,000 ingot commodity deeds.

I don't remember how the fail ratio was at 64.9 - but this should be easily tested on testcenter. Just mine for 15 mins with 64.9 then smelt the stuff.

The chance at mining is the same as the skill you have, meaning if you have 64.9 skill you have 64.9% to mine up ore.

I don't know the success chance for smelting, but if you fail to smelt at 64.9, you can don the mining gloves, giving your smelt attempts a little buff.

In addition to the gloves for smelting you could stack Jacob's Pickaxe for an additional +10 since you are under gm skill they should stack.
