Belletor's Folly.

For other uses, see Mines.

Mines are uncommon places in Oblivion. They are similar to caves but are slightly different and are often smaller. Differences include: ore veins, bandits, goblins and usually have more traps. They are uncommon as there is only about 25 mines in Cyrodiil.

Notable items[edit | edit source]

Ore veins are usually found sporadically in some mines. These ore veins are silver and gold ore veins which yield 1–3 silver or gold nuggets when searched. However, they do not re-spawn. Barrels, chests and bags are also common in mines which yield various items.

Enemies[edit | edit source]

Bandits or goblins are most common in mines and the Hero can have very lucrative profits off looting their dead bodies.
