Copper is very likely to be the first metal most players obtain. It can be found in small stone surface deposits that provide smeltable ore nuggets when broken, thus a hammer isn't needed. Copper nuggets can also be obtained by panning. A high temperature fuel such as charcoal is needed to smelt copper, which can be used to make every type of weapon, tool, and armor via the casting and smithing mechanics. Copper is also used as a component in all alloys, including: brass, tin bronze, black bronze, bismuth bronze, and molybdochalkos.
|Smelt Duration||30 s|
Gold is found only as native gold in quartz chunks which give native gold nuggets.
