Usage

Special: The pickaxe is the primary tool used in mining ores, but the prospector's pick or propick is the primary tool used to detect/locate ore deposits.

  • To prospect: press the left mouse button with the propick in an active hotbar slot to "hit" the rock. When the block breaks, a sample is taken. A detailed description of the prospecting process is available on the mining page.

Harvesting

Propicks can be used to harvest rock, which include ores and mineral materials. When blocks are broken, rock, small stones or ores contained in chunks of stone will be dropped. Ores within rock be crushed with a hammer in the crafting grid to obtain smeltable nuggets.

Combat

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

Storage

Tools are items commonly used by players and are generally equipped in the hotbar. Up to four tools can be placed on the tool rack, a specialized wall-mounted storage container. Propicks do not stack in inventory or when placed in containers.
