Pickaxes are crafted using 2 twigs and 3 units of a tool material.
A pickax is used to break rock and metal based materials fast. When an object is broken using a pickax, the pickax uses 1 durability. For objects that break instantly, it uses 0 durability. Pickaxes have different amounts of uses based on the type:
Different qualities of pickax are required to successfully harvest certain ores and objects. For example, while rock can be mined with any pickax, gold ore must be mined with a metal or diamond pickax, or else the player will harvest no ore. Different pickaxes also mine several materials at different speeds.
Woody and gold pickaxes do three damage, rock pickaxes do four damage, metallic pickaxes do five damage, and diamond pickaxes do six damage.
Wooden pickaxes can be used as a fuel in furnaces, smelting 1 item per pickaxe.
