LEGO The Hobbit Achievements

Wealth lies in the Earth

Complete the mining game perfectly 50 times  

This is one of the many mini-games in LEGO The Hobbit. You are first introduced to this in Chapter 1, “Greatest Kingdom in Middle-earth”, where you’ll learn how to mine different types of rock. The dwarf needed is Bofur since he has a pick axe. The mineable rocks will glow and sparkle. Some will be harder and faster paced than others; just take your time and figure out the timing of each one.

In the mini-game, you’ll have to stop the arrow that goes back and forth above your head. The  will glow blue every time you go past the spot. Try to pre-time it so that it lands just right. You have to press  to stop the arrow when it is sticking straight up in the middle to land a perfect mine. If you do, the rock will smash to bits in one hit. Do this 50 times for the achievement. The mini-game looks something like this:

You can grind this achievement AFTER completing Chapter 4, "Roast Mutton". It's in Rivendell, north of the Roast Mutton Sign in Trollshaw on the map. There are a total of 9 rocks to mine here. Follow the ghost studs to where you build three components. There are five mining spots in this area; four along the wall near the build spot and one across from it. When you use up all five of the spots in this area, walk to the back corner by the draw bridge and enter a door into a cave that is covered in overgrowth vines. There are four more rocks (some are hard) in here; smash those. Go back out everything should re-spawned giving you more to perfect hit.
