Pickaxes are one of the most commonly crafted and used tools by a blockhead. Their specific purpose is to mine or remove hard material blocks and ores at a faster rate and in some cases with multiplied results than by hand. Used over time, a pickaxe will slowly degrade and eventually be destroyed.

Appearance[edit]

The head and counterweight has a crescent appearance with the color varying based on the materials that are used in crafting the pickaxe. However, all pickaxes have a brown wooden handle.

Uses[edit]

Pickaxes are effective on the following items:

Where Found[edit]

Pickaxes are crafted either at the tool bench or at a portal.

Tool Bench Pickaxes[edit]

Tool bench pickaxes are standard pickaxes with increasing durability due to materials. For an increase in quality, a blockhead will need to upgrade the tool bench to the appropriate level before crafting the desired pickaxe. These pickaxes, with the exception of gold pick axes, do not provide any special benefit over one another when mining or harvesting hard material blocks or ores. Gold pickaxes have the benefit of finding additional random items in the material block being mined or harvested.

Gemstone Pickaxes[edit]

Gemstone pickaxes are pickaxes made of gemstones, at a portal, that have a benefit over pickaxes crafted in a tool bench. These pickaxes produce a bigger yield of materials being mined or harvested than their tool bench counterparts. The more precious and rare the gemstone, the greater the yield bonus. For an increase in quality, an upgrade to the appropriate level of a portal is required before crafting the desired pickaxe.

Gemstone Pickaxe Yield Bonus[edit]

The chart below shows the yield production bonus multiplier for each of the gemstone pickaxes when compared to the use of standard tool bench pickaxes. The greater the quality of pickaxe, the greater the yield multiplier.

Amethyst Pickaxe Sapphire Pickaxe Emerald Pickaxe Ruby Pickaxe Diamond Pickaxe
Yield Multiplier

Yield increases do not appear to apply to creatures, placed blocks, or "inappropriate" blocks such as plants and trees. They also do not apply to ice. The multiplier does apply to newly created basalt.

Gold Pickaxe Items[edit]

To record the items and frequency of items received when using a gold pickaxe on a block, a comprehensive chart has been constructed.

Durability[edit]

See also: Tool Durability Chart

The amount of use of a pickaxe before being destroyed is related to the quality of pickaxe and materials used. The higher the quality of material, the more uses a blockhead will get from a pickaxe.
