I was wondering how we're supposed to be able to mine Cobalt in tier 2. There is a quest asking for Cobalt and Ardite ore, but Cobalt requires mining level 07 and I'm not finding any way to get passed mining level 06 before firing up the EBF to process some Ardite. Is there anything I'm missing so far as accessible tool materials go, or is Cobalt ore meant to be gated behind the EBF?
Alright. You might want to move the quest for Cobalt and Ardite ore later into the book, then. IIRC it's in the steam age right now, but since it isn't effectively doable until Tier 3, maybe it should be late in the Tier 2 page or early in Tier 3?
