Diamond is a generally commonish ore that can be found between 400m and 1200m within the mines, and grants the player 400XP when mined. You can also obtain Diamonds from slain Zombies.
The time taken to mine it is fairly long, but nothing tedious like Serendibite. It is used to upgrade a variety of buildings, and it can be used to make a pickaxe, using 15 diamond and 40 coal, relatively easy requirements.
It is recommended to save Diamonds for future Mining Operations upgrades. Between Mining Operations level 15 through 19, you will need 1500 of them total.
It is easy to trade diamonds for good ores from Wizard and Overlord ranks who haven't saved any diamonds.
Diamond Pickaxe Edit
- In real life, Diamond is one of the most famous desired gemstones. Sapphire, Ruby and Emerald are also considered precious. It is also usually clear and colorless, but often has a slight blue tint to it.
- The Diamond Pickaxe was one of the first Pickaxes to be added in the initial Pickaxe Forge Update, and was initially known as the best Pickaxe, only beaten by the Delay of the Emerald Pickaxe.
- The ore is usually best found around 500m.
