Basic information Edit
Diamond Ore is a valuable raw material that can be extracted from Nodes and can then be smelted into Bars to be used for crafting.
How to obtain Edit
This layer is only rarely accessibly through Caves leading down from the surface or even from Stalactite layer caves, so you will usually need to dig mineshafts yourself to find your first batch of Diamond Nodes.
Extracting Diamond Ore from Nodes Edit
Diamond Ore - like all Ores - cannot be pulled from the indestructable Nodes with your arctek-gauntlet nor any Power Cells equipped, also even the best Excavators and the strongest types of TNT will not faze Ore Nodes. Instead single-use Extractors of any kind are required to harvest the Ore from Diamond Nodes.
You can use low-tier Extractors on Diamond Nodes, however it is recommended to rather use the best Extractors that you can craft.
- Basic Extractors will extract 3 Diamond Ore from 1 Diamond Node within 10 minutes
- Advanced Extractors will extract 6 Diamond Ore from 1 Diamond Node in 5 minutes
- Super Extractors will extract 10 Diamond Ore from 1 Diamond Node in 3 minutes
After placing an Extractor, you can check how long the extraction is going to take by looking at it with your cursor and either clicking your right mouse button or typing "f" as the default key.
You can take any amount of Ore that has already been processed at that time from the lower slot of the Extractor. You cannot remove the Extractor itself though before it has completed its work.
When the Extractor is done, it will stop "singing" and "fold up" with a lout click. You can take all the (remaining) Ore at once by typing "f" again (as the default key). This will then remove the Node and use up the Extractor too. Sometimes Extractors that still have Ore inside will repeat the clicking sound when players get close as a reminder to collect the remaining Ore.
Destroying Diamond Nodes Edit
Diamond Nodes cannot be taken nor destroyed. There is also no known way to transform Diamond Nodes. A Diamond Node will only vanish when the Extractor that has been placed on it is emptied after it has finished extracting all of the Diamond Ore.
Super Excavators can remove up to 7x7x7 Lava layer blocks at a time and will save half of them in Loot Bags. They also will keep Diamond Nodes intact. This is also a faster way to dig through the Lava layer in order to find Diamond Nodes.
Smelting Diamond Ore in a Forge Edit
No crafting recipe is required for this.
Crafting with Diamonds Edit
No crafting recipe is required for either of that.
Diamond Ore in its processed form, as Diamond Bars, Diamond Slabs and/or Diamond Rods is required to craft Diamond Mining Cells and Lumite Mining Cells, Diamond armor and Lumite armor, Diamond Swords and Lumite Swords, Advanced Excavators, Super Excavators, Diamond furniture, Diamond Glass, Diamond Building Blocks and other useful items.
Diamond on older game worlds Edit
Template worlds RW1-4 are said to feature a smaller number of all Ore Nodes than RW5-8, however this seems not to be the case for Diamond Nodes.
You can find Diamond Nodes on RW1-4 worlds on the deeper layers of the Stalactite layer underground, throughout the whole Lava layer and even all over the Corruption layer too, while in RW5-8 worlds Diamond Nodes seemingly extend solely over the Lava layer.
Even older game worlds that do not feature any special Biomes (Canyons, Jungles, Savannahs, Swamplands, Tundras, Taigas) also have more Diamond Nodes strewn all over the three lowest layers of the world.

Creating Diamond Nodes Edit
Pre-generated Diamond Nodes being more rare on newer game worlds is not really an issue, because Diamond Nodes can be produced in an infinite amount anyways and do not really have to be searched for.

Diamond Ore cannot be placed into the game world, cannot be put into any quickslot and cannot be displayed on/in display containers like Placemats, Stone Wall Shelves, Hidden Temple Altars, Wood Planters, Flower Pots or Galactic Grav-Chambers.
