Does anyone else experience this? Massive lag when mining Gems? It happens on the map and with searches, and it is frustrating. Firstly, when I search for mines in the Watch Tower, the results are almost always outdated! Unoccupied mines that show up enemy or neutral, or exhausted mines listed as normal. Strangely, friendly mines are almost never wrong…..
Then when I click to go to the mine, it can take up to a minute for the mine to actually show up! At first it shows the normal Wild it used to be, and then after some time it refreshes the map or something and shows up properly..
And when it comes to mining itself, the game starts to lag enormously when mining a couple of mines. I usually mine when America is asleep, and use a few sets of pickaxes in one go, but doing so results in the map almost freezing completely. Getting back to city view completely removes this so it is definitely the mining causing?
Am I the only one (or my server, as I’ve heard the complaint from more people) and what could possibly cause these problems? Frustrating to say the least….
As proposed earlier, I have put this subject in a separate article, to keep the information on both Gem mining and Embedding separated and thus hopefully easier to comprehend. The main purpose of mining in Kingdoms of Middle Earth is to acquire the Gem Shards needed to make the Gems used for embedding in gear.
Here I will give an overview of the things necessary to find the mines on the map, mine them successfully for Gem Shards, and other possible benefits from mining. To mine we need to know the following things:
