The Dark Pick is a sturdy pickaxe made from Dark Steel. It deals 2 damage, has the same durability as a diamond pickaxe, and is more enchantable than a gold pickaxe. Right clicking with the Dark Pick 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 mining speed as long as it is powered. Additionally, it will gain a significant speed boost when mining obsidian. Mining obsidian will cause the battery to drain faster however.
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.
