Due to its nature as an axe, using it as a weapon as it is intended will use two durability points per use. This is true whenever an axe or other tool (excluding the hoe) is used as a weapon. The Minotaur Axe has a durability rating of 1561, equivalent to other Diamond tools. The Minotaur Axe is unique in that it has extra charge damage, meaning that when it is used while the player is sprinting, extra damage will be dealt to whatever monster it attacks.
When using the Minotaur Axe normally, it deals 7 health (3.5 hearts) of damage, effectively equivalent to a Diamond Sword's attack power. When the Minotaur Axe is used while sprinting, a full 14 health (7 hearts) of damage is dealt. This means that when extra damage is dealt with sprinting and with a critical hit in conjunction (the effects of the two stack), the Minotaur Axe becomes a very valuable weapon, although it will deal less lifetime damage than a Diamond Sword due to its nature of an axe. That makes it break quicker when used to attack mobs. Plus, the likeliness that it will drop damaged from the Minoshroom is high. It can be repaired at an anvil, using a diamond, or another Minotaur Axe. Trivia
- Sprinting and Attacking will do double damage, which means in open arena or flat battlegrounds is the best place too use this weapon.
- With the Charge damage buff, the Minotaur Axe can be used to kill Skeletons, Creepers, Spiders and all lesser mobs in one hit and bring a Zombie down to a single heart of health.
- Like T.C. Longsword and Rapier, the Minotaur Axe deals extra charge damage, but it deals almost double damage, unlike T.C. weapons which deal about 1 more damage unit.
