Blocks

Anvils are functional blocks used as the work surface when smithing metal items.

Creation

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 an anvil to pick it up and re-position it.

Note that iron and meteoric iron anvils cannot be cast, refer to the Steel Making page for further information.

Usage

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.

Special

An anvil cannot be smelted to recover the material used in creating the item.
