Coal is a basic resource. It can be obtained in many different ways, primarily from rocks or Dust Sprites in The Mines, purchased from Clint at the Blacksmith shop, or using a Charcoal Kiln. It may also be produced by recycling trash or found in Fishing Treasure Chests. A random amount of coal may be found in addition to metal ores by Panning.

Coal is used in some crafting recipes and is necessary for smelting ore or Quartz in a furnace.


Locations

  • Coal can sometimes be found by mining rocks — both in the mines and anywhere on the map. Both daily Luck and the Prospector Profession increase the chances of finding coal.
  • Coal can be found in mine carts in certain levels of the mines - follow the mine railways then simply click on the coal-filled cart (Note: this works only once per cart).
  • Coal can be found in brown miner's bags lying in certain levels of the mines. Every bag contains around 8 pieces. (Again, this works only once per bag.)
  • A Charcoal Kiln can be used to convert 10 wood into 1 coal
  • You can farm coal by killing Dust Sprites between levels 41-79 of the Mines. You can use the elevator to quickly and repeatedly travel between floors ending in 0 or 5. (This is an easy way to farm Iron Ore as well.)
  • Black/Transparent Slimes drop Coal. They can be raised in Slime Hutches
  • Stone Golems in levels 30-39 and Metal Heads in levels 80-119 of The Mines may drop coal (10% chance).
  • Coal may occasionally be found by Panning
  • Coal may occasionally be sold by the Traveling Cart for Coin Icon100-1,000g.
  • Coal can be found inside all 4 types of geodes.

Coal purchased at the Blacksmith costs Gold.png150g during year 1, so it is cheaper in year 1 to buy 10 wood for Gold.png100g from Robin at the Carpenter's Shop and convert that wood into coal in the Charcoal Kiln. After year 1, wood pricing increases to Gold.png50g per piece but coal increases to only Gold.png250g, so it is cheaper to purchase coal directly.
