Behavior

Using a compass on a lodestone causes it to point in whichever direction it is.

Mining

A Lodestone requires an pickaxe to harvest, otherwise it will drop nothing.

Trivia

  • If you break it whilst the compass is linked, the pointer will behave exactly like it does in the Nether or the End.
  • The lodestone can be used regardless of dimension.
  • The lodestone is not immune to lava, even though it's made of netherite.
  • If used in a dimension other then the one in which the connected Lodestone is placed, a lodestone compass will go crazy, like a normal compass in any dimension other then the Overworld.
