  • Mining Drill - The cheaper version (cannot harvest obsidian) of a mining drill. It is slower but costs less energy to use.
  • Iridium Drill - The upgraded version, which is even faster and has Silk Touch and Fortune


Of course, you can now complain about the energy hunger of "a simple tool". But yet, did you realise that the D-765 Mining Drill is completely unbreakable?!

Yes, it can run out of fuel, but it will NEVER EVER break (it will, however, burn in fire or lava)! That's a promise for lifetime!

And if you possibly got some spare diamonds at hand, or just recently crafted some, you can now make an efficient and economic use of them:

Just combine them with the standard version of the D-765 Mining Drill and you will get an amazing device called the D-965 "Diamond Drill", whose mining speed is even faster than the speed of light!

You say it isn't? Of course it is! Do you think we would ever lie to you?!
