Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Gold can be used as a crafting material even after all equipment items have been crafted, hence continuing to mine it is usually a good idea.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In real life, gold is a soft, malleable and extremely dense metal (19.3g/cm³) that would render it very unsuitable for making tools or armor. This is parodied by the Goblin Tinkerer: "YES, gold is stronger than iron. What are they teaching these humans nowadays?"
  • Despite the fact that there is more gold in a bar than in a coin (and also the fact that they are often used to store monetary gold) bars are worth considerably less than even a single gold coin in the shops.
