Allows the assembly of a Dowsing Rod, used to locate veins of metal ore.
Dowsing starts a Focus timer.
Tips n Tricks
Sometimes the absence of an ore is as important as presence. If you find a gap in a vein of ore, it's quite probable that you have an intersection of rare ore!
Appears as copper with 0 perception. Copper veins are usually quite long and narrow, no more then 5-10 coordinates wide and up to 100-200 coordinates long. The vein can run in any direction.
Appears as iron with 2 perception. Iron veins are usually quite long and narrow, no more then 5-10 coordinates wide and up to 100-200 coordinates long. The vein can run in any direction.
Appears as unknown with 2 perception. Usually appears at the intersection of iron and copper veins. While iron and copper veins are long and narrow, tin appears as a small blob as small as 25x25 coordinates in size.
Are you sure about the intersection thing? Got Iron/Copper/Iron and no tin -Orrin
I found a tin blob at an intersection of 2 iron veins -Mansku
Appears as unknown with 2 perception. While iron, copper, and tin are often found together, aluminum is usually found on it's own. With 2 perception you can use this to tell aluminum from tin by dowsing the surrounding area for iron or copper. -Not entirely true. Assuming that veins follow the same very basic idea of T4, 'rarer' veins are associated with iron/copper veins (possibly tin also, but that's irrelevant). As such you could have a copper vein meeting say, a silver vein.
Aluminum still dowses Unrecognized at 4 Per.
(tehm: I have copper near my Alum)
Spiral of Titanium with a small blob of Antimony in the middle. See map for dowsing detail:

a dash (-) next to a number means that number or possibly lower, and needs to be updated as discovered
|Metal/Ore Type||Unrecognized At||Recognized At||Vein Shape||Other Metals Nearby|
|Copper||0||Linear||could be any/none|
|Iron||1||2||Linear||could be any/none|
|Tin||2||4||Blob||often @ Copper/Iron intersection|
|Titanium||6||13-||Spiral with blob of Antimony in the middle||Antimony|
|Lead||3||7-||Center of Zinc Ring and Blob about +100, +100 NE from Zinc center||Zinc|
|Antimony||7||13-||Blob in middle of Titanium Spiral||Titanium|
