Offline Mining Guide for Monster Hunter 2 Creator: Artemis Paradox

  • Guide Started on: 24 September 2008.
  • Guide Finished on: 26 October 2008.

This guide is about mining offline in the game Monster Hunter 2. I'll display the chance of getting a certain ore with %, and also a rating from Very rare - Common. Please note: Having 40% chance of getting an iron ore at a mining spot doesn't mean you'll get 4 iron ores after 10 mines. You could even get 7, while also none at all! So save your complaints about this for someone else!


Also I want to make one thing clear beforehand; do "NOT" edit any content in this page if you don't have MH2 yourself. Editing spelling and grammar is always welcome though.

Update Revision

  • 2/1/2009: Corrected the names of White Gem → Akito Jewel, Water Gem → Suiko Jewel and Timber Chute Gem → Battlefield Jewel for every mining spot.

  • About Mining.
  • List of ores.
  • Mines in every hunting area.

About Mining.

Mining is going with your pickaxe(s) to a mining spot in one of the hunting areas (for example: tower), and so obtaining various kinds of stones that are used for armor creation/upgrading and weapon creation/upgrading.

You can mine in any hunting area, a mining spot can be easily recognised by a huge crack in a stone/wall. If you got a pickaxe with you the red X will vanish if you're standing at a mining point.

So you use a Pickaxe to mine ores, these pickaxes can be made by combining items and can also be bought from the merchants in the village (in this case a felyne merchant).

The Pickaxes

There are 3 (usable) pickaxes, those being the following;

  • Old Pickaxe: The worst pickaxe, has the highest breaking chance, also the cheapest.
  • Iron Pickaxe: The common pickaxe, has a lower breaking chance, little more expensive then old Pickaxe.
  • Mega Pickaxe: The best pickaxe, has the lowest chance of breaking, can (if lucky) mine at every mining spot in an area without breaking.

Armor Skill for Mining

There's 1 skill that actually affects your mining, and that skill is called whim. The skill either increases or decreases the chance of your pickaxe to break.

The skill has 3 levels:

  • -10 skill points: Spectre's whim, your pickaxes will break far much faster then usual.
  • +10 skill points: Spirit's whim, chance of breaking is decreased slightly.
  • +15 skill points: Divine whim, chance of breaking your pickaxe/bugnet is decreased greatly.

List of Ores (offline)

  • The game is in Japanese but used the English in-game Descriptions of MHF2.

Mines in every hunting area

Here a list of mines per mining spot per area will come. Under construction.

Note: In rare cases I'll add Day and Night mines separately. If there's a change in mining % or mining results per mining spot that involves more than 1 ore there has been made a separate sub-section for both day and night time.

In some very rare cases I even put in seasonal differences.
