Tools


Trivia

  • It is worth noting that some blocks, such as Obsidian, require a specific type of tool (in this case a Diamond pickaxe) to break in order to get the broken block in the inventory.
  • Two tools of the same type and tier can be crafted together to combine their durabilities, plus 5% of the original durability. The enchantments will not be preserved unless an anvil is used.
  • If you use a tool for a different use than intended, it will lower the durability by 2 points instead of one.
  • Wooden tools can be used to smelt items, smelting half an item per tool.
  • Iron and gold tools can be smelted to obtain one iron or gold nugget, respectively.

Best tools

Many blocks have a preferred tool to break them. Some blocks can only be broken with certain tools.

Item durability

Some tools are not block-breaking tools: This includes hoes, bows, fishing rods, carrots on sticks, flint & steel, and buckets. Such tools are no better than bare fists at breaking blocks, but they do not take damage from doing so⃢₀ₔthey only take damage by being used in their own various manners.

    Different tools

    There are currently 6 different tools:

    • Pickaxe - used to break blocks such as Stone and items made of them faster; required to get the ores specified.
    • Shovel - used to break blocks such as Dirt faster. Needed to obtain snowballs from snow.
    • Axe - used to break wooden items faster, along with pumpkins.
    • Sword - used to kill mobs faster (and break certain blocks faster, e.g. Cobweb).
    • Hoe - used in farming₠to prepare ground.
    • Shears - Used to harvest wool from sheep₠(other uses – collect leaves, tall grass and dead bushes).
    • Flint and Steel - Used to set things on fire. Can be used to make a fire place, or alternatively the Nether Portal.

    Each of these tools can be created using Sticks, and either Wooden Planks, Cobblestone, Iron Ingots, Gold Ingots or Diamonds, with the exception of shears which uses 2 iron ingots alone. Tools can be repaired on an Anvil using Experience and the material used (not the sticks).
