Pocket Mine 3 Beginner's Tips Guide
Pocket Mine 3 is here, and so is GameSkinny! Whether you're a returning fan or new to the series, we'll help you get started on your mining adventure. Here are a few tips to keep in mind while you mine.
1. Upgrade your cards and gear.
When you first start playing, it's easy to forget that your items can be upgraded! Luckily, the game makes sure to remind you when your cards (which give you bonuses when you go into mines) are ready to be upgraded. As the game progresses, those cards can make or break a level!
As for your gear, if you have an item (especially legendary or epic items) that you really like, try to upgrade it to its max level. The higher level it is, the better its stats, and the better you'll do in the mines.
2. Complete Achievements to earn more gems.
If you find yourself low on gems, head to the Achievements tab and take a look to see what you've completed. Try to keep some of the easier ones in mind when you enter the mines! Gems are useful for giving you another card slot to use when going into a mine and also for giving you a bonus pickaxe in case yours breaks prematurely.
3. Don't just tap wildly while mining.
Pocket Mine isn't one of those "tap to win" games -- you have to be strategic! Save your hits for when you absolutely need them. Likewise, always keep an eye out for combos you can make by stringing bombs, worms, explosive gas, and drills! The fewer unnecessary hits you make, the more you'll have left for when you really need them.
4. Create different loadouts.
A returning feature to the game, loadouts are a great way to vary your gameplay and to adapt to different situations. You unlock loadouts after acquiring a playable character card, and it's a great way to create different builds depending on those characters!
5. Gather artifacts to complete exhibits in the museum.
Artifacts are found inside chests in the mines, and collecting a whole set can get you some fabulous prizes. As a reward for completing exhibits, you get card packs that sometimes contain rare or exotic cards! This is a great way to increase your card arsenal and thus increase your chances of winning in the mines!
These are just a few tips to help you get started in Pocket Mine 3, but of course, what matters most is that you keep trying! The more you play, the more you'll figure out what builds work for you.
