Enigmatica 2: Expert Wiki

This quest is meant to teach the player about the Ore Excavation mod. To use the Ore Excavation function, hold anything in your hand in-game, hold down the "Excavate" key (which is set to backslash by default), and mine a block. Blocks of the same type that are connected to that block will all be destroyed, up to a certain number of blocks (limit of 512 blocks, range of 24 blocks). Try this out by holding an item in your hand, holding down the excavate key, and punching a tree. If all goes well, the whole tree should break. Do this enough times to collect sixteen logs, and you will receive four chests for your troubles.

Note: Excavate does deplete your hunger, but it's nearly always worth it to save the time it takes to mine blocks.
