The hero will need to learn how to dig through the ground without tools. He or she then has to move the soil out of the hole when digging a burrow. It is estimated heroes are able to move soil based on a complex equation: level of hero (times) the level of this skill (divided by) the level of monster they are running from (times) the weight of their backpack when starting the underground burrow.
Heroes will need to be aware they will not be able to see and will need to "just keep digging" until they come up for air. It is recommended that heroes use a compass along with their map to ensure they do not dig through any underground pipes. Heroes using this skill without using these techniques can pose a serious threat to agricultural and residential development by damaging huge tracks of land.
