    Lightbulb Buff The Shovel??? (Pickaxe's Cousin that We Barely Cared About)

    In case you still don't know, the shovel can break blocks just as fast as pickaxes, but have rare use. It's quite the the cheap alternative farming tool back in the day as the were usually sold at around 2-4HL compared to 1WL per pick.

    This just came off of my head from another thread, but if the shovel was to be buffed, what updates should be added to it?


    So far, peeps have agreed on one thing, which is:

    Increasing chances to drop worms to 30% when breaking dirt but with normal speed.



    If you got any other ideas, you can drop em' below. If this catches on, I'll start a poll off the ideas gathered.

    Jesus christ, these buffs are so frickin op for an item that costs less than a small lock, these op buffs would be added only for a diamond lock thing, atleast.

    Digger's Spade seems to fit the bill. Ya'll can drop down your ideas as well if you think the above-mentioned are OP.

    Wouldn't this make fishing more accessible for new players? Oh, sorry, I forgot that all the cool items are reserved for epic pros.

    I'd personally make the shovel have a x5 chance to drop worms. NOT 5%. Just 5x more than its normal drop rate. Why? Even if the shovel itself doesn't give any buffs, OTHER items can. That would be apparently broken if it was 30%. In addition, with or without enhanced digging mod, it takes 3 hits to break dirt....so...yea.




    Overall, I'd keep the shovel the same, but if I HAD TO give it a buff, that would be what I'd do.(FYI, based on what I know, you get 1 worm every 1000 dirt...so, 5x wouldn't be overpowered but still useful for noobs)
    They are two types of people in the world. Me and not me.

    I posted about 5-6 other ideas that were deemed OP and he meant those. I edited it down to one.

    Wouldn't this break the economy? Oh, sorry, I forgot my brain in the bathroom.

    But more seriously tho, then there should be a new, lower tier bait introduced that gives only small fish and a few noob-ish items. Doesnt drop from the tackle boxes, since they would be kind of useless to people who have above 10wls.
