I am surprised by the production potential of silversteel mine, if your data are right, and a little upset. May be the devs idea about Silversteel was it would require a community effort to really use the full potential of the mine, but I think this will not be the case, a large alliance can manage to use the full potential with their members alone.

If the production can be potentially so high, Silversteel equipped whole armies could not be a chimera and a war over the mines will be unavoidable.

Silversteel will be for commanders only. Even if production times could be reduced, the supply of silversteel is too rare. 1 silversteel plate on a human t2 cavalry is only about an extra 15 attack points. What is more important, 15 attack points, or 1 million gold? You could easily sell the extra silversteel to make up for the negative gold you would go into by having an additional 25% cavalry. 

Even with just commanders silversteel will remain rare. 3 silversteel per commander, 5 commanders per city, 10 cities per player; that's 150 silversteel per end game account. 

Whomever owns the silversteel supply in Illyriad will either become the richest player/alliance in the game, or will suffer the greatest losses in Illyriad history when they suffer silversteel troop losses during combat.

1000 silversteel mined per day times 5 mines = 5000 silversteel per day = 1 piece of silversteel per active player per day, or 10 silversteel per day for the top 500 players.  (Not saying this is how it should be allocated or how it will be used, just saying that's a lot of silversteel.)

That's if the Silversteel is being mined at 100% efficiency. I am guessing that currently it is around 30-40% efficiency. 

With a well coordinated alliance, i think its possible to get it up to 70-80% efficiency.

I haven't ownership of any of the mines, so, to me, is way TOO MUCH :-)

Per day? It takes 30 minutes to mine, according to Moguls earlier post. I haven't heard anything avbout how fast it regenerates but significanlty more than 1000 per day should be possible somehow....

My estimates were somewhat conservative.  The maximum number of miners in a city is 860 (with 21 miners guilds).  Honestly not many folks are going to be willing to dedicate an entire city to miners -- much less the multiple cities and/or players that would be required to make a mine completely efficient.  It would not be difficult to extract 10k silversteel a day, however.

I was saying that even if silversteel mines are controlled by people who are merely human (or dwarf/elf/orc) and do not dedicate every fiber of their being to producing silversteel, there will still be a lot of silversteel out there.

I think it would be an bigger injustice to see your neighbors holding a silversteel mine and not harvesting it effectively (aka exploiting it). Wink
The image in my avatar is a chalk pastel drawing I did as part of the Imagine Yellowstone Art competition.
