Melee Weapons Edit
Most Melee Weapons in Creativerse are Swords, except for the Twig that is your first and always present emergency weapon, and the store-bought Industrial Crowbar that was introduced to the game with R44. However even the Twig and the Crowbar are swung in the exactly same way and with the exact same reach as any "real" Sword.
To exchange already equipped swords with better ones you must right-click on the new sword in the inventory/bag. This will place the new sword into the weapon-slot next to your character's portrait and the old sword will be moved into your inventory instead. If you only have a Twig (left), then any sword that you will receive will also automatically be equipped.
Afterwards you can switch between weapon-mode, tool-mode and harvest-mode with TAB (default key) to ready the sword or to put it away again. You cannot put Swords into any quickslot any more.
Please note that all melee weapons have a limited durability (including all rare and store-bought weapons), and low tier weapons have much less durability than high tier weapons. With each hit (misses don't count) melee weapons will lose a little of their durability.
The green bar below the weapon icon will show you how much durability the weapon has left. Additionally to that you will be notified by an onscreen message window when the weapon is significantly damaged and again when it is already critically damaged and won't last long anymore.
When melee weapons are worn out completely, they will fall apart and vanish, which will also be visually indicated on the screen. At that time, the now ruined melee weapon will automatically be replaced by the Twig.
Other than crafting Swords yourself, you can also rarely find already crafted common Swords in randomly spawning Treasure Chests underground:
- Stone Treasure Chests can contain Wood Swords
- Obsidian Treasure Chests can contain Stone Swords
- Iron Treasure Chests can contain Obsidian Swords
- and Diamond Treasure Chests can contain Iron Swords
You will probably craft most of your swords yourself, since all weapons will lose a bit of durability until they fall apart completely whenever you hit a creature with them. Currently, Creativerse has no repair feature.
So you might want to be prepared and take a new sword with you if your current one hasn't much durability left!
The Twig will be displayed when readying your weapon (TAB is the default key) whenever you have no actual sword equipped or whenever your last worn sword falls apart. However the twig is not a real item any longer that can be unequipped, instead it's merely a spare weapon that replaces an otherwise empty hand.
The equipment overview indicates that the Twig can inflict 4 damage points, while readying the Twig will display a tooltip that states "+1" in a box on the screen, but this does not seem to refer to damage points, rather to the "amount" of Twigs that are equipped.
The first actual weapon that you can craft is the Wood Sword from a starting crafting recipe that doesn't have to be unlocked.
The Wood Sword provides 10 damage points, and the few materials that you will need to craft it (Vines and any type of Wood except for corrupted) can be collected right away at the beginning of the game. No Power Cells nor crafting stations are required for this.
The Stone Sword provides 15 damage points.
Stone can be mined from shallow Caves, steep hillsides, rocky Mountains and recesses near rivers without requiring a Power Cell to be equipped. However, to obtain Wood Rods and Twine (made from Vines), you will have to craft a Processor at first and put the raw materials into it.
Bones can be made in a Processor from Fossils found on the Fossil layer in shallow Caves or at recesses too, so it's not even necessary to fight Creatures in order to craft a Stone Sword. Processing materials in the Processor does not require any crafting recipes to be unlocked or used.
The Obsidian Sword provides 30 damage points.
In order to craft Obsidian Swords, you will have to craft Extractors (from Slabs made in a Processor) to extract Obsidian Ore from Obsidian Nodes on the Fossil layer (acessible through shallow Caves) or in recesses at rivers or in the Mountains. You will also have to craft a Forge (Bedrock can be mined on the Fossil layer with a Stone Mining Cell) so you can smelt Obsidian Ore into Obsidian (bars).
Now you will either have to kill or tame ordinary Mirus for their eyes. You can encounter them in Caves that reach down to the Fossil layer and/or the Stalactite layer. Mirus can even occasionally come out of caves at night and roam the surface too. Arctic Mirus that spawn on Snow in the night/darkness have blue eyes that can't be used for this crafting recipe.
The Iron Sword provides 60 damage points.
You will need Iron Bars to craft these Swords. Iron Ore can be extracted from Nodes on the Stalactite layer, but can also be collected from Iron Treasure Chests and Diamond Treasure Chests. Hot Feet and Warmworm can drop Iron Ore too, but very rarely and in extremely sparse amounts.
Warmworm Teeth and Feral Pigsy Fur are also required to craft Iron Swords. The aggressive but immobile Warmworms can be encountered on the Stalactite layer and Lava layer underground, while aggressive poisonous Feral Pigsies spawn on the surface in Jungles and Swamplands during the day.
The Golden Sword inflicts 60 damage points similar to an Iron Sword. It also does not have more durabilty. Its only benefits are its nice swinging effect and unusual look, plus it does not require Warmworm Teeth to be crafted, but Yellow Pigment made from Yellow Cragwood Flowers instead.
The Golden Sword can only be crafted from a purchasable crafting recipe that can currently be bought via Steam as a part of the Welcome-DLC. Once bought, the unlocked crafting recipe is permanently added to the crafting menu and available on all Creativerse gameworlds.
You can ask players who own the crafting recipe to craft the sword for you, but this will not unlock any crafting recipes in your crafting menu. The Legendary Golden Sword has once simply been called "Golden Sword" before update R42, but has always inflicted 100 damage points and required Lumite to be crafted (it still does).
The Industrial Crowbar inflicts 60 damage points similar to an Iron Sword. It also doesn't have more durability. It just has a unique look and requires much less materials to be crafted (2x simple Leather from Pigsies or Night Pigsies, 2 Iron Rods and 1 Iron Slab).
The Industrial Crowbar (to be used exactly like a Sword) can only be crafted from a store-exclusive crafting recipe that currently can be bought in the Store as a part of the Industrial Super Bundle. Once bought, the unlocked crafting recipe is permanently added to the crafting menu and available on all Creativerse gameworlds.
The crafted weapon itself as an item is also part of the "Industrial Pack", but this item pack does not include the crafting recipe. You can ask players who own the crafting recipe to craft the crowbar for you, but this will not unlock any crafting recipes in your crafting menu.
The Diamond Sword provides 70 damage points.
To craft a Diamond Sword, you will have to kill or tame Warmworms and Arctic Mirus. Aggressive but immobile Warmworms can be encountred on the Stalactite layer and Lava layer underground, while aggressive Arctic Mirus can spawn anywhere on blocks of Snow at night or in darkness.
Ordinary red-orange Miru Eyes cannot be used for this crafting recipe. Diamond (bars) are smelted in a Forge from Diamond Ore that can be extracted from Nodes found on the Lava layer underground or can be made from Coal Nodes with Fire Bombs.
The Hidden Temple Sword inflicts 70 damage points similar to a Diamond Sword. It also doesn't have more durability. It just has a unique look and is rather "cheap" in its making (1x Tourmaline from Warmworms or the Lava layer, 2 Stone Rods, 1x Vines, 2x Wildwood from Jungle trees).
The Hidden Temple Sword can only be crafted from a store-exclusive crafting recipe that currently can be bought in the Store as a part of the Hidden Temple Super Bundle. Once bought, the unlocked crafting recipe is permanently added to the crafting menu and available on all Creativerse gameworlds.
The crafted sword itself as an item is also part of the "Hidden Temple Pack", but this item pack does not include the crafting recipe. You can ask players who own the crafting recipe to craft the sword for you, but this will not unlock any crafting recipes in your crafting menu.
The Medieval Sword inflicts 70 damage points, similar to a Diamond Sword, and also has a similar durability. It's easier to craft than the Diamond Sword, however not as "cheap" as an Industrial Crowbar. It requires 1 unit of Water, 1 unit of liquid Lava from the Lava layer, 1 Warmworm Tooth, 2 Iron Rods and 2 Iron Bars.
The Medieval Sword can be crafted from a store-exclusive crafting recipe that currently can be bought in the Store as a part of the Medieval Super Bundle. Once bought, the unlocked crafting recipe is permanently added to the crafting menu and available on all Creativerse gameworlds.
The crafted sword itself as an item is part of the Medieval Pack, but this item pack does not include the crafting recipe. You can ask players who own the crafting recipe to craft the sword for you, but this will not unlock any crafting recipes in your crafting menu.
The Lumite Sword provides 100 damage points, currently the maximal possible damage output in the game.
The crafting recipe for this sword is free, but quite demanding. Corruption Dust can only be obtained from corrupted Creature that spawn on corrupted blocks in the dark, like on the Corruption layer deep underground. They are both hard to kill and to tame. Since Things are especially tough and strong, you might want to avoid confronting these corrupted Creatures without an already crafted Lumite Sword (or similar).
Arcstones can only be obtained from any kind of Keepa, mainly when killing them. Trog Horns can only be obtained from Trogs that spawn during the day in Canyons or natural Canyon blocks (again either as a loot or pet-harvest). Lumite (bars) can only be made in a Forge from Lumite Ore that can only be extracted from Lumite Nodes solely found on the Corruption layer deep underground.
The Legendary Golden Sword can be crafted from a crafting recipe that was part of the "Gold Pack" which only early backers (who have once paid for the game) have received on November 11th 2015.
Naturally neither the crafting recipe nor the sword itself can be found anywhere on the game-worlds of Creativerse. You can ask players who own the crafting recipe to craft the sword for you, but this will not unlock any crafting recipes in your crafting menu.
The crafting recipe for this sword is very rarely available for a limited time via redemption code during holiday-seasons or events, which will be announced on the forums or via Creativerse Twitter https://twitter.com/creativersegame
After the crafting recipe has been added to the crafting menu, it is already unlocked, can be kept permanentely and will carry over to all Creativerse worlds. You can ask players who own the crafting recipe to craft the sword for you, but this will not unlock any crafting recipes in your crafting menu.
Ranged Weapons Edit
Additionally to melee fighting you can throw different kinds of throwables, including effective Explosives (some with additional elemental damage effects). All thrown items will be used up and destroyed upon impact.
Please note that aiming to hit creatures (or player characters) correctly can be tricky. It's advisable to rather aim at a block in front of the target, and to avoid throwing throwables uphill, since they rather often hit the next step instead of the target farther away. Usually creatures and player characters will display an animation and sound that will tell you that you have managed to hit them.
Usually throwables have a certain maximum range too. Additionally, when throwing throwables from a platform, they might sometimes seem to go right through the target and even ground blocks without causing any effects.
- Stun Bombs inflict a small amount of damage while their main purpose is to stun creatures, which will render them unable to fight back or run away (for example while being tamed). Most creatures have their own "stunned" animation too. Examples: ca. 10 Stun Bombs can kill a Pigsy, ca. 16 Stun Bombs can kill a common green Leafi, ca. 20 Stun Bombs can kill a blue Keepa, and merely 4-6 Stun Bombs can already kill a small Pebble.
- Explosive Bombs inflict a significant amount of damage. Examples: 2 Explosive Bombs can kill a Pigsy, 2-3 Explosive Bombs can kill a red Rockster, 2 Explosive Bombs can kill a Night Rockster, and 13 Explosive Bombs can kill a Corrupted Rockster.
- Armor-Piercing Bombs are even more effective. Examples: 1 Armor-Piercing Bomb can kill a Pigsy, 2 Armor-Piercing Bombs can kill a red Rockster, 1 Armor-Piercing Bomb can kill a Night Rockster, and 10 Armor-Piercing Bombs can kill a Corrupted Rockster.
- Poison Bombs are less effective, but require even rarer ingredients to be crafted. 4 Poison Bombs are necessary to kill a common yellow Pigsy. Feral Pigsies and Mossy Leafies are seemingly immune to the poison over time effect. Creatures killed by Poison Bombs always seem to drop Loot Bags just fine
- Freeze Bombs inflict freezing damage over time for about 3 seconds. However their damage output does not warrant collecting the rare ingredients to make them. 17 Freeze Bombs are necessary to kill a Pigsy, but if a Creature is actually killed by freezing/cold damage over time, it will not even drop a Loot Bag! Blizzard Chizzards, Rambeaus and Arctic Mirus are seemingly immune to the freeze-over-time effect.
- Fire Bombs inflict fire damage over time for about 3 seconds, setting player characters and Creatures on fire. Still, Creatures only suffer very little damage (around 30 Fire Bombs are neccessary to kill a Pigsy) and won't even drop any Loot Bags when being killed by burning, while a few Creatures (like Warmworms and Hot Feet) seem to be nearly completely immune to Fire Bombs.
- Corrupt Bombs inflict corruption damage over time for about 3 seconds. Up to 30 Corrupt Bombs are required to kill a Pigsy, however Creatures do not drop any Loot Bags when being killed by the Corruption damage over time! Corrupted Creatures seem to be immune to Corrupt Bombs.
- Rimecones can only inflict very little damage, but are also very cheap in their collecting or making (from Elderwood Leaves with a Plow or from Wood Treasure Chests that randomly spawn all over the surface at night). 2-5 Rimecones can kill a Pigsy, 8 Rimecones can kill a red Rockster or a Night Rockster, however ca. 60 Rimecones are necessary to kill a Corrupted Rockster.
- Purification Bombs hurt and can kill Corrupted Creatures very effectively by purifying them and seemingly inflicting some "purification damage" over time too. Merely 6 Purification Bombs are enough to kill a Thing. However, if corrupted Creatures are killed by Purification Bombs, they won't drop any Loot Bags. Purification Bombs do not damage nor heal uncorrupted Creatures or player characters.
- Globs of Goo do not inflict any damage, but can slow Creatures down when you can manage to hit them. This can make taming a lot easier too
- Snowcubes (that can be made from blocks of Snow in a Processor), Force Bombs and Flares do not seem to inflict any damage (anymore) currently.
You could use TNT to damage Creatures in principle, but since these types of Explosives cannot be thrown and will also damage the surrounding (except for harder rocks), they are quite inefficient and difficult to deal with.
It is possible, but not recommended to kill Creatures by:
- trapping them in liquids (to drown them)
- setting them on fire or overheating them - either with liquid Lava or blocks of Hardened Lava (Hot Feet and Warmworms seem to be immune to heat though)
- freezing them with blocks of Ice or Snow (might not work on Arctic Mirus, Blizzard Chizzards and Rambeaus)
- corrupting them with Corrupted Water or any type of corrupted blocks (except for corrupted creatures that are all immune to Corruption)
- purifying corrupted creatures with Healing Beacons, Purification Bombs or Mineral Water or luring cave creatures and night creatures into sunlight.
