The Divining Rod scans an area depending on orientation and provides information about the EMC values of the mineable blocks in that area. The information varies according to the level of the Divining Rod.
The Divining Rod comes in three levels; each level adds greater accuracy and longer scanning distances, as shown in the table below.
Usage of Divining Rod
Right-click a block in the direction you wish to scan with a Divining Rod selected. Change modes with the Toggle Active key. (By default: "G").
The levels of Divining Rod provide the following information:
|Modes||Scanning Dimensions||EMC Consumed|
|Short Range||3x3x3||1/2 Charcoal|
|Mid Range||16x3x3||1 Charcoal|
|Long Range||64x3x3||1/2 Redstone Dust|
You are standing above ground looking down and right-click holding a level 3 Divining Rod. Three values come up:
Best Found: 8192 Second: 256 Third: 4
This means there is at least one mineable block under you worth 8192 EMC (Diamond Ore), a second worth 256 (Iron Ore or Tin Ore) and a third worth 4 (Gravel).
- Very rarely, if the area searched by the Divining Rod contains a torch, the server kicks you with the message "Internal server error".
- A possible bug has been observed by some users where the divining rod consumes fuel when in the inventory.
- The divining rod does not appear to detect the proper EMC values for: nikolite, ruby, sapphire, and emerald ores (Value is reported as "1").
The table below shows the various blocks you can mine with their respective EMC values, as seen with the Divining Rod.
(Lava is also counted as 64)
