The Heart of the Mountain (HotM) is a skill tree related to Stone Pickaxe.png Mining.

As players level up their Heart of the Mountain, they will gain Tokens of the Mountain, which can be used to unlock various perks. Some of these perks will take effect only on public islands with new mining mechanism (alongside with infinite Mining Fatigue).

A Heart of the Mountain Menu showing all perks up to Level 7 at max level.


The menu can be accessed via the SkyBlock menu (while inside the Dwarven Mines and Crystal Hollows), via the Mining skill menu, or anywhere via the /hotm command.

Players can level up their Heart of the Mountain tiers by gaining HotM experience, which can be accumulated by completing Commissions and participating in various active mining events (e.g. Goblin Raid). Note that unlocking the whole tree at the same time is not possible, due to the insufficient amount of available Tokens of the Mountain.

Each Commission completed in Dwarven Mines grants 100 HotM experience, and each one completed in Crystal Hollows gives 400 HotM experience. Players receive additional 900 HotM experience from completion of the first four Commissions, if HotM Tier is below 7. Otherwise players earn additional 1,600 Mithril Powder or Gemstone Powder instead, depending on the area.

The Heart of the Mountain can be reset. This wipes all of the HotM upgrades and returns all spent Mithril Powder, Gemstone Powder and Tokens of the Mountain. However HotM tier and Peak of the Mountain levels are kept; thus powder spent on upgrading Peak of the Mountain is not reimbursed. The first reset is free, but each subsequent reset costs 100,000 coins. Resetting the HotM has a cooldown of 24 hours.

Trivia[]

  • Reaching Heart of the Mountain tier 5 will reward the player with the "Peak of the Mountain" Achievement.
  • 2x Powder Events also double Mithril Powder obtained from Commission rewards, the Daily Powder perk, Fetchur, and Puzzler.
    • However, the Powder Buff perk affects neither.
  • Multiple abilities can be unlocked at once. Players must use one ability then select the other in the Heart of the Mountain Menu in order to use it.
  • Despite being impossible to get every single perk in Heart of the Mountain, if one were to get all of them and max each one out, it would cost 16,323,038 Mithril Powder and 23,540,045 Gemstone Powder.
  • The Fortunate perk costs Mithril Powder to upgrade unlike the other perks in HotM 6.
  • The Heart of the Mountain is a reference to the Arkenstone from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. The Arkenstone is the biggest and rarest gemstone in the Lonely Mountain, and valued most by the Dwarves.
  • The mining exp of the Seasoned Mineman perk is additive with the Refined reforge, the Silverfish Pet's Mining Exp Boost perk, the Mining Fiesta and Derpy's MOAR SKILZZ!!! perk.[3]
