Tips[edit | edit source]
- Using Smart Cursor is the only way to take full advantage of the Shroomite Digging Claw's mining speed, as it mines too quickly for human reflexes to keep up with.
- Due to the Claw's reduced range, one might wish to use another pickaxe with higher range (such as a Spectre Pickaxe, Picksaw, or Luminite Pickaxe) for activities other than excavation.
- Although it is a tool, it is a relatively viable melee weapon due to its very fast speed and high damage. The only shortcomings are its low range and knockback.
- If any three effects that increase mining speed are used, such as a Light reforge, Mining armor, Mining Potion, Ancient Chisel, Celestial Shell, or Slice of Cake, the player will be able to mine 1 block every frame, or 60 blocks per second if the game is running at 60fps. This is because the digging claw's use time of 4 frames means every increase to mining speed will always reduce the use time by 1 frame. At this speed, it is possible to mine slightly faster than the player will fall, which can be dangerous without immunity to fall damage.
- It has a low sell price compared to other tools of the same tier, making it relatively cheap to get a Light or Legendary modifier by reforging.
