Bismuth is a metal. Its main use is as a component of bismuth bronze. On its own, it is only used to make plates for lanterns.


Bismuth can be smelted into ingots.


There is only one ore of bismuth in the game, bismuthinite. It can occur in any igneous or metamorphic rock layer, as both a shallow and a deep ore.


Bismuth nuggets should be mixed with zinc and copper to create bismuth bronze. Bismuth ingots on their own can only be smithed into plates, whose only current use is for lantern creation.


Bismuth nuggets should be mixed with zinc and copper to create bismuth bronze at a ratio of 10-20% bismuth, 20-30% zinc and 50-70% copper. Bismuth bronze has a low melting point and is slightly worse than all other bronzes in terms of attack speed, mining speed and damage mitigation.
