Anvils are functional blocks used as the work surface when smithing metal items.
|Material||Copper, Tin Bronze, Bismuth Bronze|
The first step in this process is to create an anvil mold via the clay forming mechanic. The anvil is then cast using the casting mechanic. An anvil requires 900 units (9 ingots) of copper or bronze alloy to fill the mold. Once an anvil is cast and removed from the mold, it may be placed it like any other block onto a solid surface. No tools are required to break (left mouse button) and anvil to pick it up and re-position the anvil.
The anvil is the work surface used for smithing metal tools from ingots heated in a forge. When a heated ingot is placed on the anvil, a dialog box opens to allow the player to select the item to be crafted. Copper and Bronze items can be worked on any anvil, but iron items may only be worked on a bronze anvil.
An anvil cannot be smelted to recover the material used in creating the item.
