Swords in Mine Blocks are available in 5 different types: wooden, stone, iron, golden, and diamond - each of which have different durability and lethality. To use a sword, simply click in the direction of a mob (in reach). The mob will take damage if hit and the sword will have increased damage.
A stone sword can be found in 21.8% of loot chests with 50-100 damage to durability.
Two swords 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.
The base damage is used to calculate the total damage considering potion effects, enchantments, and making a critical hit. However, the damage dealt is always rounded down, so for an unenchanted sword hit which is not critical the damage dealt would be the base damage rounded down.
The durability (amount of uses until the tool breaks) for swords is calculated just like the rest of the tools.
|Type||Durability (uses)||Base Damage|
