I don’t know if this is well known, but I discovered recently how avoid damage from falling rocks while mining ores, without having to move out of the way.
If you mine at an angle, the rocks literally miss hitting you. When the square shows in the spot the ore is in, stand at the very point of the square, kind of in the north-west position and other equivalents. Hope that makes sense.
I was really pleased to come across it and thought I’d share just incase others didn’t know about it?
