Ore DOES Respawn

#1Admir91Posted 11/15/2011 11:52:09 AM
I revisited the Malachite mine in Kynesgrove and the quicksilver mine in in Dawnstar and the ore does respawn, but I don't know how long it took. It may first appear that there is ore in the rocks, but it won't let you mine it. So I fast traveled to another city and back and then I could mine it again.

Also, if you want ore or ignits quicker, "wait" infront of a smith until they reopen their shop the next morning.

I think what is causeing all of this confusion is that the ore deposits out in Skyrim do not respawn. There is a deposit just to the left of the front door to Witerun, and I haven't seen that respawn EVER! But apparently the deposits in caves and dungens do respawn. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I have the guide and it says in there that it respawns after about a month.

Read many times, they respawn in 1 month (game time).

I do not think its a month. I think its more like 2 weeks. I mined ebony at the mine near the orc camp in the east, and did at the most 4 quests. That was on the 1st of Heartfire. It is the 14th, and the deposits are back. Maybe a glitch, maybe actual time. All I know is that it took 2 weeks, not a whole month.
