|Also known as||LGN, Nymph|
|Location||Lava Flow Mine|
|Examine||A creature formed entirely of liquid gold.|
The Liquid Gold Nymph is a character that features in the Lava Flow Mine. She is one of the distractions from mining the lava crust, along with boiler breakages, TzHaar heroes, Lava geyser, and possessed pickaxes. The reward of appeasing her will be a piece of the Golden mining suit, which works in the same way as lumberjack clothing, giving a 6% mining experience boost when all pieces are worn.
The Nymph's appearance is completely random. When she appears, a message in the chatbox reads "A Liquid Gold Nymph rises out of the lava as you mine". She only appears to one player at a time and will not automatically talk to the player, though more than one nymph can appear at any time. When the Nymph appears, she will make a simple humming sound, so it is recommended to have the sound effects on high to hear her since it is a faint noise. It is confirmed that the segment in which the player mines does not affect the appearance of the Nymph; it only affects the experience being earned. Mining in a world where no other players are present at the Lava Flow Mine will not increase the chances of encountering her.
After she appears, the player has 5 minutes to talk to her to gain the reward before she disappears. Even if the 5 minutes aren't up, she will disappear upon logout and disconnection. Furthermore, if the mining site is left (i.e. if one were to get another pickaxe because their current one is already gilded), she will not be there on return. A player that loses connection while attempting to receive a reward will not receive a reward.
The golden mining suit is given in sequence: boots, gloves, helmet, trousers, and top. If all five pieces of the golden mining suit has been obtained, the Nymph will offer either to give 2,500 Mining experience, or to gild any pickaxe in the inventory/on the toolbelt, other than the sacred clay pickaxe and Inferno adze as these cannot be gilded. One should be careful with experience reward if this is not wanted, as when asked about anything apart from gold, experience is rewarded. It might take minutes, hours, or even days to get a single piece of the golden mining suit.
If duplicate pieces of the golden mining suit is desired, simply drop the required piece and talk to the Nymph to claim the duplicate. For example, if the golden mining top is dropped, a duplicate top can be obtained. And if the golden mining trousers are dropped, the player will receive another pair of trousers. But do remember to PICK UP the dropped items. Also note that the Nymph only gives the player one item so it is recommended to have the full suit beforehand.
