Mining level refers to the material strength of a tool necessary to mine any given material. If an ore requires a mining level greater than that of the tool used to mine it, the mining process will take significantly longer and the block will not drop any materials when broken. While this is also true in vanilla Minecraft, the Hexxit modpack has several new materials and new mining levels, which may confuse newcomers.

Mining Levels of Various MaterialsEdit

The following mining levels are based on the construction of tools using the methods provided by the Tinkers' Construct mod.

In addition to these, some materials cannot be made into tools with Tinkers' Construct, but require a crafting table to be produced.

Mining level 1: Cobblestone, Gold

Mining level 3: Diamond
