Shovels are used for digging, or harvesting terrain blocks including soil, clay, peat, sand and gravel.


The raw material used to create the tool head determines the crafting process required:

  • Knapping: Stone Shovels can be crafted by knapping.
  • Casting: Copper and Bronze alloy shovels can be made by casting, which requires 100 metal units.
  • Smithing: Iron, Bronze alloy and copper shovels can be made by smithing, which requires 1 ingot.
    • Note: Shovels can also be smithed from gold and silver.

The shovel is the primary tool used in harvesting terrain blocks for raw material or other resources. Pressing the left mouse button "hits" the soil or other selected block.


Shovels are used to harvest terrain blocks including soil and resource materials. When blocks are broken, soil, gravel sand blocks or resources such as clay or peat bricks will be dropped for players to collect.


Attacking a mob (melee combat): place the tool in an active hotbar slot and press or hold left mouse button to strike the target.


The shovel is not used in any current game crafting.


Tools are items commonly used by players and are generally equipped in the hotbar. Shovels do not stack in inventory or when placed in containers. The tool rack is a specialized wall mounted storage container that allows players to store tools. Tool racks are made of 6 sticks in the crafting grid and once placed, can store 4 tools each. Tools are placed from an active hotbar slot and removed using the right mouse button to an empty space in the hotbar.
