Overview

Shovels are tools that allow the player to dig up ice cubes in the winter, ground in the forest and sand on the beach and islands. This tool can be upgraded to amethyst tier. The higher the tier of the shovel, the faster resources can be gathered.

While digging with a shovel, there is a small chance to obtain stone, gold, diamond or amethyst resources instead of sand / ground / ice. This chance is significantly increased when wearing the crown of luck.

More Information

The Stone shovel was added in the 'Vamos A La Playa' update. The Golden, Diamond and Amethyst shovel were added in the 'My House, My Castle' update.

As of the 'What Do I Look Like' update, in a pond/lake or ocean, you can only dig ground.

The shovels can only use 3 different items for each recipe.
