Usage[edit]

Crafting ingredient[edit]

As a material for weapons, tools, and armor, gold is not a straight upgrade from iron (except in the case of horse armor). Gold has a higher mining speed and enchantability than any other material, but attack power and durability tends to be low. The golden pickaxe can harvest only those blocks that are harvestable by a wooden pickaxe.
