Choosing the right material

Choosing what the best material to make a tool out of can be daunting given the sheer variety of options that GregTech presents. Durability and scarcity are the most important factors to consider when making a tool, and some suggestions are listed below:

  • Iron
Steam + early LV
  • Iron
  • Wrought Iron
  • Stay away from bronze and steel (bronze has worse durability than iron and you need the copper and tin; steel takes too long to make for it to go towards tools)
LV (post EBF)
  • Steel
  • Damascus steel
  • Vanadiumsteel (likely the almost best option you have, also great for Tinker's Construct weapons/tools)
  • Manasteel - unlike steel, has 10 times greater durability and definitely worth the effort to make tools from it (this however requires circuit assembler for twilight portal gem and a little bit exploration to find botania shrooms to actually get manasteel)
  • Vibrant Alloy
  • Manasteel - if you haven't done this yet it actually around 25% more durability then vibrant alloy and same mining level - usable for ore prospectors, electric tools and all that staff: literally mvp of all materials (in manufacturing difficulty and useful properties comparison)
