Prospecting Picks (Propick) are used to help players locate ore deposits for mining.
The raw material used to create the tool head determines the crafting process required:
- Casting (100 units): Copper and Bronze alloy
- Smithing (1 ingot): Iron, Bronze alloy, Copper (Gold and Silver)
Table: Tool Tiers
|Material||Durability||Material Tier||Mining Speed (Stone)||Attack Power (HP)||Attack Tier|
- 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.
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.
Attacking a mob (melee combat): place the tool in an active hotbar slot and press or hold left mouse button to strike the target.
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.
