Scythes are used to harvest multiple plants simultaneously, including tall grass or crops.
- Smithing (1 ingot): crafted from the metals shown in the table (below).
Table: Tool Tiers
The scythe harvests 6 plants in a 3 x 3 block area and is the most efficient way to harvest plant resources, including grass and crops when farming. The scythe can also be used to harvest products from animals.
The scythe can be used instead of a knife when butchering animals. To harvest plants: place the tool in an active hotbar slot and press or hold left mouse button until the block breaks and the block or resource drops.
- Special: Grass on soil blocks does not regenerate after harvesting with a scythe. Grass on farmland blocks will regenerate.
- Note: The scythe has no mining speed variant. The metal used to create the item affects durability, but has no effect on the rate of harvest.
Attacking a mob (melee combat): place the tool in an active hotbar slot and press or hold left mouse button to strike the target.
- Note: Though all tools may be used as weapons, the scythe has no known attack power or HP value per hit.
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. Scythes do not stack in inventory or when placed in containers.
