Ore blasting bomb
|Ore blasting bomb|
Ore blasting bombs are a powerful tool for mining ores, although less than optimal to destroy rocks. They have a 90% chance to drop block contents on ore blocks (as in, Chunk of Quartz from a Quartz-containing stone) and a 25% chance for non-ore blocks (Granite stone from Granite rock). Bombs are more of a mid-game mining tool, requiring at least a tier 2 (copper) pick to mine sulfur ore and at least a tier 3 (bronze) pick to mine black coal.
Ores destroyed by a bomb will never drop their crystallized version, and similarly gems will not drop.
Using an ore blasting bomb is simple. Place the bomb and light it with a torch. Bombs placed close to each other chain together and explode at the same time.
Bombs do a lot of damage, so make sure to run to safety after lighting them!
