Summer Discovery Dig! was Mycena Cave's second non-forum based event.
From July 2nd to July 14th 2014 the Summer Discovery Dig event was held, where way down in one of the wonkier caverns, some ineki have found a very curious mine. It seems letters can be mined right out of the rock! So, grab a pick* and head over! Collect letters to make words, and give them to Mycenians you feel the words describe. It's fun, and just a little bit silly. The shinies you mine could then be used to exchange for prizes in the Underground Marketplace!
Deep in the caves, the letter mines have started producing! And what better to do with words than to give them away.
Collect letter tiles by mining for them in the letter mines. Click a tile to move it to your wordsmithing bench, or drag tiles to reorder them. Once you have enough tiles to make a word, place them on your wordsmithing bench and click "Give!". Each letter is worth a certain number of shinies, and when you give away a word you receive as many shinies as the letters were worth.
You can have a maximum of 15 letters at a time. If you need to discard any letters, place them on your wordsmithing bench and click "Discard". When discarding letters, you will receive one shiny per letter.
Up to 25 shinies left over would be used as raffle tickets for an additional event raffle for event-specific prizes.
Word of the Day ChallengeEdit
The Word of the Day Challenge was an additional forum mini-event tied to the Summer Discovery Dig. Every day there would be a new word and if the user was successful in sending that word to anyone during that day, they would receive a point.
Those who managed to complete five or more challenges (accumulated 5+ points) were rewarded with the equippable item Shinies.
Shinies were swappable for prizes in the Underground Marketplace. Although the event ended at July 14th, 23:59 server time, the Underground Marketplace remained open until July 20th, 23:59 server time.
Four coat colors were released for the Summer Discovery Dig! event. They were included in the Rust Geode as mushrooms and for direct purchase as mushrooms with shinies. They can also be obtained through a Changingshroom or a Summer 2014 mushroom.

|Pearly Depths (Cat Ineki)||570|

Items could be directly purchased for shinies or randomly drawn through the Geodes. The Rust Geode only contained the mushrooms of the newly released coat colors while the other two contained the items.
