Here are the Hammers i tested for you and of course for myself :grin:

The most useful in my opinion is Ruby or Topaz hammer, as they remove one block very quickly and an Emerald hammer - maximum efficiency!

#5

Oh my… It makes me want to wait test go live before start my building


#8

Not only did I learn a lot about hammers, I also learned a new word. Gradation. Nice one. Thanks for the educational post!


#9

@Nibuls did you do the emerald hammer yet?


#10

no, still need it, if you want to give me some emeralds, in my house i placed three request basket with rough, compact and refined emeralds. Need 20 rough or 2 compact or 2 refined.


#11

im not on test server at all


#12

Oh, what a pity :pensive: but if you had emeralds on the live server when the test server started, then you will have it on the test. The test server started when Oort Temple was half-ready.


#13

I build on US West sorry


#14

Dear Santa[dev], i did good deeds all year and was obedient, give :gift: me some emeralds please. And who cares that is summer now…:grin:

:star2: Really amazing work!! :star2:

But a quick cautionary comment that the balance of equipment (tools and weapons) and player progress will continue to change. (Hopefully always for the better.) So it’s possible when the next update hits some of this data will be out of date. Keep a look out in the release notes for details of any balance changes.

Either way it’s actually really helpful to see how the current balance translates in game play now.


#16

You made some mistake in experiment with Amethyst hammer. You hitted only top block in column. It possibly influence on three blocks - target, upper and lower.


#17

No, I tested all hammers before doing demos, everythings correct. Only 2 blocks. But perhaps it is worth to clarify that the Amethyst hammer changes its direction depending on which side of the block you are hit.

Floor

Wall

Ceiling

It is very interesting how the Emerald Hammer behaves.


#18

so the amethyst hammer will always hit the one that is “down”

how does the emerald behave


#19

Yeah. Especially after this:


#20

a full nine
