Stone shovels with 50-100 damage can be found in 21.8% of loot chests in stacks of 1.
Two shovels of the same material can be combined in the crafting grid to combine their durability. This can also be done through use of the anvil, to preserve enchantments.
Shovels are required to collect:
Shovels can be used to speed up the collection of these blocks:
There are five types of shovels, each with different mining speeds and durability.
|Wooden planks||60||Easiest to craft however it has the slowest mining speed. Can be found in the loot chest.|
|Cobblestone||132||Second easiest to craft, and slightly faster than the wooden shovel. Can also be found in the loot chest.|
|Iron ingot||251||Slightly harder to craft, however quite fast.|
|Gold ingot||33||Fastest mining speed, however it is not recommended for regular use as it has very low durability, so is not worth spending one gold ingot on.|
|Diamond||1562||Faster mining speed than the iron shovel, however slightly slower than gold. It has a lot of durability for how much it costs.|
Shovels can be used to deal more damage than by hand, however they deal the least damage than any tool of the same material and use up two durability points when used to do damage to a mob.
Shovels can be enchanted directly through the enchantment table.
Enchantments applicable to shovels include:
*Note: Silk touch and fortune are mutually exclusive.
Different shovels have different item ids.
Here is a table:
Item data is used to determine the durability of the shovel. If using the
/give command, this can be specified using the third parameter. Positive integers are how much durability the shovel has taken away from full durability, and negative integers are how much durability the shovel has left. For example, the command
/give wooden_shovel 1 10 gives one wooden shovel with ten durability taken away from full durability.
