Giga Drill Breaker
Excavation is the act of digging and is required to be done with a shovel of some kind.
- Stone / Cobblestone
As the skill levels up, you get a higher chance of receiving treasures from what you dig.
- (Remember that it will not work if the server has a plugin that spawns the drops in your inventory)
Increasing skill level
You level up by digging materials that are mined with a shovel.
If you really want a high level in Excavation, just go far from your home and dig everything in sight that's listed to the right.
Another good way is to stock up on shovels and make a trapped snowman. This will allow you to dig the snow underneath it which is constantly refreshed. As the snow is fast to break, it will wear out your tools very quickly, but it will also help you to level very quickly in the comfort of your own home without having to worry about finding stuff to excavate. Keep an iron block nearby and use an iron shovel to clear the snow. When you are running low on durability, just repair the shovel and keep on digging. This method trains up Excavation and Repair at the same time.
You can also use Giga Drill Breaker in bursts to speed up digging, at the expense of extra durability wear on your shovel. To counteract this, use diamond shovels. Often when you are past level 350, you'll get at least 1 diamond from a single Giga Drill Breaker, allowing you to repair the shovel whenever durability starts to drop.
Excavation only has one 'Active Ability' currently.
