Cattails – Speed Mining

A guide to teach you my simple mining stategy.


First off, you will need plenty of food. If I might suggest, at least have three rows of food in your inventory. I have noticed that one of the best places to find food is at the bottom left corner of the map, at the beach area. There is food there at all times (even winter).

Bonus points: Bring one of your kittens along (If you have kittens). This is an easy way to help them level up.

Mining Basics

While in the mines, you will find gems, ores, rock debris, and bats. Yep. Bats. These Dreadful creatures attack you very fast, causing you to loose health very quickly even though they are very weak. The Overseer Mole at the mines will tell you a lot of important things, but will not say much about bats. For that reason, I will give you some bat fighting tactics.

  • Attack, Retreat, Repeat
  • Attack then dodge sideways
  • Run trough the bats while attacking
  • Avoid them in general (Very Difficult)

Speed Mining

Now it’s time to state the true perpose of this guide: Speed Mining. Speed Mining is basicly when you decend the staircase as soon as you find it. To clarify, here are the instructions.

  • Dig around
  • Find the staircase
  • Decend the staircase without a regret in the world
  • Repeat

See, it’s simple! Follow those rules and you’ll get to level 100 in a very short period of time.

  1. It actually sums up what you have to do though. All you have to do is press space to break the rocks, and if you play the game you know that can go down the staircases by walking into them and pressing ‘yes’. So it is useful as ‘Deep cuts’ are not a thing.

  2. This is the most disappointing article.
    Instead of giving useful info (e.g., use Deep Cuts to quickly break rocks) you literally say “find the staircases and use them”. How useless.
