Usage

Shovels are used to break Aether Dirt and blocks similar to it, but faster than if by only hand or with other tools. Breaking blocks consumes one durability, while blocks that instantly break do not.

Each type of shovel has unique passive abilities. Skyroot doubles drops from naturally-generated blocks, Holystone has a chance to drop Ambrosium Shards, Zanite gets stronger as it's durability decreases, Gravitite (except for Swords) can send blocks flying from use on right-click at the cost of four durability, and Valkyrie has extended reach.

Skyroot Shovels can be used as fuel for Holystone Furnaces, smelting one item per shovel.
