The Pickaxe is a tool which is used to gather different kinds of metals and coal from rock quarries. Players can later decide if they would like to build a different pickaxe for more durability or a better chance at rarer metals. Pickaxes only lose durability for hitting rocks, not if you just swing them. However, they'll lose durability even if you don't get a drop from that swing.
|Axe Type||Durability||Chance of Rares|
|Iron Pickaxe||1/6 Chance||Average|
|Copper Pickaxe||1/5 Chance||Average|
|Silver Pickaxe||1/4 Chance||Low|
|Salt Pickaxe||1/1 Chance||Average|
|Gold Pickaxe||1/3 Chance||Average. High on non-spawn islands. Used to mine gems|
|Steel Pickaxe||1/9 Chance||Average|
|Gemstone Pickaxe||1/4 Chance||Average. High on non-spawn islands|
|Electrosteel Pickaxe||1/7 Chance||Low?|
While a Steel Pickaxe has roughly the same chance of rare ores as a Silver Pickaxe, a Steel Pickaxe cannot mine salt peter. This suggests its chance of rares is very slightly lower than that of a Silver Pickaxe.
- When a new player joins the game, they are given a few default tools. One of them is the stone pickaxe.
- A player can buy a new Stone pickaxe from the General Merchant for 10 doubloons.
- The pickaxe can be used as a weapon, but deals little damage.
- Stone pickaxes cannot mine anything other than iron, making them ideal for iron farming.
- Ruby, Emerald, and Amethyst vary in rarity but seem to be functionally identical when turned into pickaxes. If not, the difference between them is very small.
- Sapphire is the rarest gem and the only one which, when made into a pickaxe, can mine Electrosteel (Note, this must be made with Angelwood to do this and mined during an Electric Storm.)
- Salt pickaxes break in exactly 100 hits, making them almost useless.
