Pickaxes are the tools players need to have in order to mine for gemstones. They differ in correlation with two factors, mining power and durability. Each factor plays a major role in impacting the gameplay.
Mining power refers to the power of pickaxes, the greater the mining power the easier the pickaxe is able to mine more valuable gems while preserving its durability.
Durability is the pickaxe's stamina, it prolongs a pickaxe's mining time. the higher the durability bar the longer a player can mine. However, it is always correlated with the mining power thus being heavily influenced by it and the way players use it.
Pickaxes come in 5 different rarities, "common, uncommon, rare, epic, mythic (JACKHAMMER)".
Each rarity has 2 stats lines.
Using a lower-grade pickaxe on a higher-grade Gem mine will consume your pickaxe's durability at a much faster rate.
In order to calculate how many times a particular gem mine can be farmed, the formula below can help you :
For Example :
You will be able to mine the Quartz gem mine 10 times with a common pickaxe.
x = 100 / 10 = 10 times
You will be able to mine the Diamond gem mine 1 time with a common pickaxe.
x = 100 / 100 = 1 time
Durability requires 3 hours to be fully charged when it is fully drained.
