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 RodEdit

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:

Level Modes Information Provided
1Grid Divining Low Short Range Average EMC value of blocks in scanned area
2Grid Divining Mid Short Range
Mid Range
Average EMC value of blocks in scanned area
Best EMC value found
3Grid Divining High Short Range
Mid Range
Long Range
Average EMC value of blocks in scanned area
Best, second-best and third-best EMC values found
Modes Scanning Dimensions EMC Consumed
Short Range 3x3x3 1/2 Charcoal
Mid Range 16x3x3 1 Charcoal
Long Range 64x3x3 1/2 Redstone Dust

ExampleEdit

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).

BugsEdit

  • 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").
