Leveling Mining in Dragonflight
The first thing you need to do when you reach the first hub in the Dragon Isles, Wingrest Embassy is to learn Dragon Isles Mining from the trainer, which will allow you to pick Dragon Isles ore veins.
Increasing your skill in Dragonflight is done by mining ores around the Isles, and the main limiter to your leveling speed is how highly skilled you already are, as once you are past 50 skill you will stop getting skill points from mining the common Serevite Ore.
Thus, from 50 to 100 you will need to mine Draconium Ore. Look particularly hard for nodes with special modifiers and extra drops, such as the ores depicted below with Molten, Hardened, Primal, Rich, Infurious and Titan-Touched modifiers, respectively:
You will also be able to increase your Mining profession knowledge, in order to further invest into specializations, by looting rare ores such as the once-per-week (but stackable if you miss out on looting it on previous weeks) Iridescent Ore depicted below:
Other Mining knowledge sources are the rare ores Unyielding Stone Chunk, Iridescent Ore Fragments, Elementally-Charged Stone, and Heated Ore Sample, and the Inscription-produced Draconic Treatise on Mining.
You can also get knowledge from first time gathers of a ore type, modifier or usage of Overload Elemental Deposit on a specific modifier, Mining Field Notes from a profession questline, Dragon Shard of Knowledge which can be used to gain knowledge with any profession, and Dusty Miner's Notes, Ancient Miner's Notes, and Rare Miner's Notes which are purchasable from the Artisan's Consortium reputation vendors with increasing amounts of Artisan's Mettle.
