The Statue Of The Dwarf King grants unique powers to the player each day. The Statue Of The Dwarf King Recipe is received as a reward after a player completes Mining Mastery in the Mastery Cave.


Every day, the Statue will offer two of its five available powers. The player can only choose one. There are 5 different powers, as listed below.

Although the options the player receives are random, they are pre-determined at the start of the day. Therefore there is no benefit to crafting multiple statues or restarting the day as the player will just receive the same options.

Greater chance to find geodes

When this power is active, geodes found inside and outside of the mines have a 25% higher chance of spawning when a rock is broken, either by hand or with bombs. However, this does not affect the chance of finding geodes inside supply crates on the Beach Farm.

Greater chance to find coal

When this power is active, coal will be 3% more likely to drop in any scenario where coal can be dropped. This will be on top of the higher chance to find coal that the player could have from the Prospector profession. This will not affect the number of coal created by the Charcoal Kiln

Greater chance to find ladders and shafts

When this power is active, ladders and shafts will have a (multiplicative) 25% higher chance of dropping from rocks in The Mines or Skull Cavern. They will also have a 22% chance of dropping from monsters in these locations, increased from the usual 15%.[2]

Bombs cannot damage you

When this power is active, the player is immune to all damage from Cherry Bombs, Bombs, Mega Bombs[3], and Explosive Ammo inside and outside of the mines. The player is also immune to explosive damage from Hot Heads in the Volcano Dungeon.
