Core Keeper: Patch 0.3.2 Implements Changes to Ancient Pickaxe

The mining sandbox game Core Keeper received an update a few days ago that implemented changes to the Ancient Pickaxe. The developers have also added some balancing improvements and bug fixes.

The Ancient Pickaxe was pretty overpowered back then, thanks to its high base stats and ability to break any wall with a single hit. With Patch 0.3.2, it now has epic rarity (legendary before this update) and adjusted stats.

So, how does the newly tweaked Ancient Pickaxe perform? Basically, breaking walls now requires two hits, and it can no longer break mold walls. Although nerfed, it is still a very good pickaxe to use. Additionally, this item now has a chance to drop from Azeos, the Sky Titan - a boss found in the Azeos Wilderness biome.

Another major change in this update is that the amount of fish or fishing items required for you to level up your fishing skill has been lowered. Moreover, fireflies will now have a lower chance to spawn if the area is already heavily populated with fireflies.

Patch Notes

  • Thunder beams spawned by Azeos now do more damage
