Your best T construct tool

Recommended Posts

What is the best Pick,sword e.g you can make in T construct?

 

I've seen so many different ways people say are the best i'm just not sure anymore :/

 

So what is the best way to get the fastest pick/hammer e.g or the the best weapon? any help?

The best of anything when it comes to tinkers' construct depends on your preference and exactly what it is you're attempting to do.

 

Best for general mining? Hammer in most cases, pick in others, have high durability, good speed, maybe with silky so a tool later on with fortune can mine ore blocks like diamond, coal, etc

Best for netherrack mining? Hammer with high durability (manyullyn) and high speed with 1 repair (since you wont be using it too much if its only for netherrack)

Best for nether brick farming via netherrack? Same as above, but with the auto-smelt ability on the hammer as well

Best for attacking _____? Cleaver with ____ enchantment that deals more damage toward that mob type (smite for undead, athropods for spiders, etc) as this will be dealing more damage than the sharpness version could

Best for attacking players? Rapier with high damage output (sharpness)

 

 

That list is by no means the best of the best, and by no means the "generalized" best. Whatever someone considers as best, can be considered bad by someone else, there is just no real answer to this question as again, it boils down to what you prefer and what your exact goal to achieve is.

I crafted Tinkers Construct shovel out of Alumite with the Moss and Silky modifiers.  I have now found out when I use it that because of "Silky" it picks up grass blocks first and then dirt afterwords (so your inventory fills up quickly).  I haven't tested this fully...but I don't think I can get a flint drop from shoveling gravel with my new shovel.  I played around with some gravel and I never got flint, until I built a standard dimond vanilla shovel.  Still...I love the Moss options in TC.  I also like the level of control you have adding "luck" vs using a vanilla enchanting table.

 

I haven't smelted any manyullyn yet...that is supposed to be the hardest material in TC from what I understand.

Just a note that auto-smelt isn't always an upgrade when you're talking about efficiency, every block you smelt with that is half as many blocks as you could've got from the smeltery or pulverizer.  A lot of stuff in TC is like that - a convenience rather than being specifically better.

This is a good general guide.

Personally, I always have a Pick with me as well.

If you're just farming a large group of mobs, use a Scythe.

Rapier and Cleaver end up being interchangable for players depending on what they use once you know your way around tools and such.

I don't really like ANY of the specific mob damagers as Cleaver's damage with Sharpness is more than enough.

Wouldn't you say rapier was better for PvP, DS, or are there armours available in this that negate that whole 'ignore armour' ability it has?

 

Also, do you think the slower attack-rate of the cleaver makes it still worth it to use in general against mobs (if you're not head farming)?  Given the amount of damage boost you get from sharpness it seems like the faster swing speed would make a difference for DPS, but I know you've actually tried a bunch of this stuff in PvP on BTeam recently so I'd like to hear your opinion on that.

Silky works like Silk Touch, so under that, gravel would never become flint for that shovel.

That makes sense.  I have not yet been lucky enough to "win" stilk touch as an enchanting option in any of my legit games.  Sometimes I use creative mode to test things out, but I usually play survival as I love the challenge and pride you feel when you go from punching trees to... ;)

due to multipliers you can get, Cleaver can one-shot all of the bosses currently in AOTBT and more including players in full Prot V

rapier is better if you need to kill multiple players or they keep respawning

 

I use a Cleaver as a general all purpose tool, but I pull out the other ones in my backpack if I feel like I really need to, which doesn't usually happen

Cleaver isn't actually all that slower than regular weapons, to be honest

a Longsword or Broadsword could be a good medium between speed and damage

 

more advanced players know that health > armor, so Cleaver is a good one shotter

Rapier, again, does have its uses which is why they are both one of the tools in my hotbar

I find it unneeded for specialised swords since my Rapier has +10 attack damage, my Knife has +15, and my Cleaver has +23 (all with an extra modifier once I get 3 Nether Stars).

As for my pick, it's always Auto-Repair, Luck then the rest is Speed.
