Is it just me, or are the Iron Tools the most efficient?
« on: January 24, 2019, 12:15:59 PM »

I know as per stats Gold and above pickaxe/axe/shovel are supposed https://ovo.fyi/1337x/ https://ovo.fyi/kissasian/ https://ovo.fyi/mangastream/ to be upgrades but they're so slow it feels like I'm back to the copper tier. DPS-wise, so to speak, are Gold and above really better tools??

sorry, my responses don't seem to be saving.

The iron tools are a bit OP for their level, which is good for a lower level tool.  The higher level tools have better damage, larger hit boxes, and (probably) better drops of rare/trace elements.

Since they also have a higher hit point base, the higher tools can be enhanced one or two times more than the lower level tools, which increases their usefulness even more.

The best thing you can do when mining (or exploring) is to eat and sleep often to keep your comfort and health up.  This will give you slower stamina loss and faster stamina recovery, which makes any activity go a lot faster.  Clothing that is geared for mining and/or comfort and stamina enhancement will also aid in this.
