The Dark Axe is a sturdy axe made from Dark Steel. It deals 2 damage, has the same durability as a diamond axe , and is more enchantable than a gold axe. Right clicking with the Dark Axe equipped will attempt to use the item on the hotbar to the right.
It can be upgraded at an anvil using a Vibrant Crystal to become empowered. Once empowered the item will gain energy storage and as long as the item is charged, half the durability damage will be absorbed from the power. An empowered Dark Pick will gain an increase in efficency as long as it is powered. Additionally, the Dark Axe becomes able to cut down entire trees at once. Hold down the sneak button while chopping down a tree to cut down up to 50 connected wooden logs.
Dark Steel equipment can be upgraded at an anvil by combining the equipment with a certain item. A certain amount of experience levels are used in the process.
