Material Stats are given to individual tool parts based on their material. Stats may vary based on the part that they are applied on - for example, tool rods have a handle modifier that multiplies the total durability of the tool; handle modifier depends on the material used. Tool heads determine mining speed, mining level, durability, and attack strength; however, all parts of the tool contribute an individual material trait. Tools can be crafted with different materials for each part in order to vary material traits added.

Material Traits

  • Reinforced: +10% chance per level of not using durability.
  • Stonebound: Mines faster as it wears out, but does less damage.
  • Jagged: Deals more damage as it wears out, but mines slower.
  • Writable: One extra modifier per "Writable" piece.
  • Tasty: Occasionally drops Bacon.
  • Slimy: Occasionally spawns Blue Slimes.
  • TF.png Heavy, Shiny, Dense, Fancy: Flavor text; does not do anything.[1]
  • EU.png Modifiable: Gains modifier slots per Modifiable part; +1 at 1 Modifiable, +2 at 2 Modifiable, and +8 at 3+ Modifiable. If the tool uses less than three parts, using only Modifiable parts can also grant +8 modifiers.
  • EU.png Heavy: Decreases movement speed by 10% per level when held.
  • EU.png Mathematical!: Flavor text.
  • EU.png Unbreakable: Only applies to tools made 100% out of Unstable Ingots. Effectively identical to Reinforced X (100% chance not to consume durability).
