The Hammer is a tool which harvests blocks in a wide range. The hammer is a Tier 2 tool and can only be created in the Tool Forge.

Natural Ability: Area of Effect- The Hammer mines a 3x3 grid this works on stone and ores that the Pickaxe also works on. Once the mining animation is completed on the source block the 8 surrounding blocks are gathered. This pattern can be horizontal or vertical, depending on the side of the block that is harvested and the other blocks around it. This will only mine blocks that the Tool's Mining Level will allow, and even then some blocks will not break.  An example is when you mine netherrack with a stone hammer near cobalt ore, the cobalt ore will not break.

Natural Ability: Smite. The hammer does extra damage to Undead mobs (Zombies, Zombie Pigmen, Skeletons, Wither Skeletons, the Wither Boss).

Durability: High

Mining Speed: The number shown seems to be the sum of the mining speeds of the head and plates divided by 7.5. Redstone adds (2 +.4 per level of the modifier) per 50. 2.4 at 50, 2.4 + 2.8 at 100, 2.4 + 2.8 + 3.2 at 150
