Stone->Iron->Steel is unbalanced. in General Discussion Posted November 6, 2020 20 minutes ago, Liesel Weppen said: No, the iron tool is faster than the stone one but still slower then the steel one. So in the end, until you have steel tools you can decide if you want to take a long time but save 100 stamina with stone, or do it quick and "waste" stamina with iron. I usually don't use stone tools from when i have enough stamina regen to use iron. Because iron is much much faster. With the stamina regen rate of approx 10/sec (my current ingame regen rate) you also need to account in atleast 10 second downtime for the iron tool to gain back that 100 stamina. With 100 starting stamina you need approx 28 seconds have enough stamina to destroy the 1000 hp block with an iron tool this is 38 second downtime and with steel its 29 seconds.
