This page details the best Dragonflight Mining stats and gear, and how they can be used to maximize profession output.


Crafting Stats for Mining in Dragonflight

All stats have their uses, but for Mining we recommend focusing on Perception in order to maximize your rare loot drops, which should maintain their value throughout Dragonflight.

Finesse is also a strong stat which can increase your base material yield significantly. Finally, Deftness is also a decent stat, but the time you actually spend mining is not as high as the time spent looking for veins, especially if you are hunting for the rarer modified veins exclusively!

For more information on profession stats and gear, please refer to our dedicated guide below:


Best Mining Gear

Miners, like most other professions, can use three pieces of gear at once, 1 tool and 2 accessories. Blue-quality items are best in slot.

Item Type Source
Draconium Pickaxe Icon Draconium Pickaxe Tool Blacksmithing
Khaz'gorite Pickaxe Icon Khaz'gorite Pickaxe Tool Blacksmithing
Bottomless Stonecrust Ore Satchel Icon Bottomless Stonecrust Ore Satchel Accessory Engineering
Bottomless Mireslush Ore Satchel Icon Bottomless Mireslush Ore Satchel Accessory Engineering
Draconium Delver's Helmet Icon Draconium Delver's Helmet Accessory Engineering
Khaz'gorite Delver's Helmet Icon Khaz'gorite Delver's Helmet Accessory Engineering
Profession Gear

As shown in the image above, quality is a big factor in the stats you can get from the gear. Green versions are bind on equip and from trainer recipes, but blue versions require faction / renown grinding for their recipe and are bind on pickup, requiring you to submit a Crafting Order for them.

Also, remember to enchant your primary tool with Enchant Tool - Draconic Deftness Icon Enchant Tool - Draconic Deftness, Enchant Tool - Draconic Finesse Icon Enchant Tool - Draconic Finesse, or Enchant Tool - Draconic Perception Icon Enchant Tool - Draconic Perception.


Gear Mining Can Make For Other Professions

Mining cannot make gear for use by other professions.
