Players who don't feel like staying at their homes or in caves will be happy to know that there are an infinitude of things to do in the surface, but before you get your backpack and go exploring, extreme caution is to be taken if one wants to survive.
First and foremost, a minimum of quality is required for a weapon, a Club or another wooden blunt weapon may work at first, but a player of arms will prefer to acquire at least Iron or Bronze to make a decent blade. Once metal is acquired, the arms race begins.
The following is a list of types of weapons as well as known artifacts of ancient or modern power.
|Bladed Weapons||The blade is most effective against exposed skin or hide. The go to option for a well balanced warrior.|
|Broadsword||The common broadsword is easier to craft than more elaborate or intricate blades. However, it is as effective as it has always been.|
|Dagger||Not made for full-on war, this is the tool of the wary, silent and extremely fast.|
|Longsword||As its name implies, the longsword has further reach at the expense of less balance, therefore, the use of two hands is needed for proper use.|
|Greatsword||The might of the greatsword is enough to slice through any enemies that dares gets in its way. In exchange for power, it is slow and unwieldy.|
|Katana||A katana is a one-edged sword that, when used with ability in both hands, can cut through the biggest of foes.|
|Saber||A saber is a lightweight one-edged sword made specifically to be an effective cutter of flesh.|
|Rapier||The rapier strength lies at the tip of its blade, piercing through enemy armor|
|Blunt Weapons||Blunt weapons generally deal enormous damage in single hits or depend on the dexterity of the user, but they always focus on inflicting damage where a blade can't cut.|
|Club||The club is an ancient weapon with effectiveness that still carries on today. One good whack and your enemies will be inflicted with nausea.|
|Quarterstaff||The quarterstaff is easy to craft and cheaper than most, therefore, is a bit weaker.|
|Hammer||When paired with the proper strength, the hammer is a powerful weapon that can obliterate foes left and right.|
|Warhammer||The brute strength of the warhammer is able to pierce through even the toughest of armor.|
|Caestus||The caestus is for those who reject weapons. Pummel your foes with a barrage of strikes!|
|Polearm Weapons||The way of the polearm is the way of the smart; if your opponents can't reach you then they cannot harm you. When in doubt, stick them with the pointy end.|
|Spear||The spear is a prime example of what makes polearms effective, its long range can keep enemies at bay whilst keeping the user safe.|
|Halberd||Although halberds are slow and require the usage of two hands, its brute force and the ability pierce through shields make it an effective weapon for those that dare stand in its way.|
|Pike||The pike is perhaps the greatest of the polearm weapons, its length is unrivaled, thus its ability to protect is also the greatest.|
|Lance||When paired with a mount, the lance can do amazing amounts of damage. A great weapon to have on the move.|
|Glaive||The glaive's sweeping edge can slice through multiple foes at once rather than having to focus on just one.|
Building a ship
The most daring adventurers do not settle for a simple boat. After building the desired shape for a vessel out of blocks, only a Ship Helm and a steam engine are needed to turn it into a fully fledged ship.
Limited by the oceans? Don't worry, attach enough balloons to a ship so that 40% of its mass is made out of them and it will become a marvelous airship! Remember each time an engine is added to a ship the speed will increase. They require a fuel source like coal or nethercoal to function.
The Overworld is where the player first spawns, and can be reached by going back through the entry portal of any other dimension. The Nether is reached in the same manner as vanilla Minecraft. The Aether is reached by making a nether portal frame out of glowstone, and 'lighting' it with a water bucket. The Beneath can be reached by mining down and past the Arcane Barriers, which require a diamond pickaxe or any equivalents. The Twilight Forest can be reached by filling a two by two block hole with water source blocks, surrounding the water in flowers or mushrooms, and dropping a Queen Ghast Tear into it.
