Tools are usable items that can be upgraded for better effects. They don’t occupy an inventory slot and are instead displayed in a separate screen. The player starts with the Basic Pickaxe.


The Pickaxe is used to harvest resources, but can also be used to fight.

The Shovel is used for digging for items and to plow the soil for farming. Special spots are marked which contain more items when dug, such as Sand, Coal and Gems.

Bows are used for ranged combat, but they can also destroy resources from the start, making them an excellent early and mid game replacement for the Pickaxe. With the Quiver Artifact, a few upgrades and the Ballistics skill to shoot 3 arrows instead of 1, the bow can make quick work of an entire Land’s resources.
