All Mining Job Quests in Fae Farm

Job Quests allow you to demonstrate your ability in every in-game skill. You can show this off with the reward from the final quest, a job-specific outfit. Most of these outfits are absolutely worth the effort that it takes to complete the quests. The Mining outfit, in particular, is quite the look! Plus, you keep all of the resources that the Job Quests require you to collect, and you always need said resources for something in Fae Farm. There’s no reason not to complete them.

Where to Start Mining Job Quests

You’ll need to speak to Cinder to start accepting Mining Job Quests. There’s a good chance that you have already spoken to her, as she is the one you will be going to to upgrade all of your tools. She is located in town, and the following are the best methods of getting to her.

  1. From your Homestead, head south down the path until you enter Town Square (where the tables are for you to sell items). From here, go down the stairs and then turn right, and you’ll find Cinder.
  2. Use the Homestead Wayshrine to teleport to West Town. Then, immediately go down both sets of stairs to the south. Finally, run east until you encounter Cinder.
