How To Break Wood In Minecraft

This article is about the human activity of breaking blocks. For items breaking due to low durability, run across durability.

A role player mines a tree and obtains a log.

Breaking,
digging,
punching, or
mining
is a mutual action in
Minecraft, performed (by default) by holding the left mouse push button or right trigger while the cursor is pointing at a block, or past long-pressing on the block on touch screens. Breaking is used to create passages, tunnels and articulate away unwanted blocks, and is the primary way of acquiring blocks for future placement or crafting.

Basics of breaking

[
]

Breaking is accomplished by holding downwardly the
destroy
button while the cursor is over a cake. If the player is within range of the target, the thespian’s hand begins swinging, making a repetitive “thump” noise as the histrion hits the block, and cracks appear.

In
Coffee Edition, this range is 5 blocks in Creative style, and 4.5 blocks otherwise. In Bedrock Edition, the range is five blocks when using a keyboard/mouse or controller input, and when using touch input, the range is 12 blocks in Creative mode and vi blocks otherwise.

Blocks are marked with a wireframe cube outline (or turn a petty lighter on bear on screens), making the current target easily visible (this can be toggled on and off in
Pocket Edition). After the cracks completely embrace the block, it breaks and depending on the blazon of block and the tool being wielded, it may be harvested for resources.

Although many blocks can exist harvested with bare hands, certain ones require the utilise of a tool. In detail, to obtain resource from stone or metallic-blazon blocks, the player must use a pickaxe. For harder blocks like iron ore or obsidian, a pickaxe fabricated from a college-tier fabric is required. The player can also utilise shovels and axes to speed upwards the breaking of dirt and wood-type blocks (respectively), although, with the exception of snowfall, they are not required to become the resource drop. The downside is that tools have immovability, and so they eventually wear out.

If the tool has the blue Unbreakable tag under its enchantment and name, information technology does not intermission under any circumstances. In
Java Edition, one can be caused using the command
/give:
/requite @s diamond_pickaxe{Unbreakable:1b}

The progress for breaking a block is reset if the target block changes while breaking. Progress is also reset whenever the
breaking
command is released. The thespian tin can motion freely while breaking blocks. The player tin can even dig while jumping, swimming, or riding, although this reduces the breaking speed.

On survival manner, still, some blocks are unbreakable, like bedrock, and on run a risk mode all blocks are unbreakable unless the histrion has a item/tool with the
can_destroy
NBT tag. On spectator mode a thespian tin’t break blocks in any fashion, and on creative fashion all blocks are breakable unless the player is belongings a sword, trident, or debug stick.

Speed

[
]

The role player’southward earthworks speed is controlled by 3 factors: the block beingness broken, the item the player is currently wielding, and the mining penalties affecting the player. Every cake has a hardness value, which determines the base corporeality of breaking time if the player hits it with their bare hands.

The base time in seconds is the block’southward hardness multiplied past 1.5 if the player can harvest the block with the current tool, or five if the actor cannot.

Assuming that the player can harvest the block, the adjacent cheque is whether the player’south tool increases the breaking speed for the cake. Run across Best tools for a full list.

If the tool helps, then it increases digging speed past a constant multiplier, given in the post-obit table:

Material Cipher Woods Stone Iron Diamond Netherite Golden Shears Sword Efficiency Haste
Tool Speed 1 2 4 6 8 9 12 ii (1 on vine and glow lichen v on wool, 15 on cobwebs and leaves) 1.5 (15 on cobwebs) additional (one+level2) when using the proper tool additional (twenty×level)% per level of Haste

If a proper tool is used, the tool speed is further increased by the Efficiency enchantment. If the level of Efficiency is non 0, then the level squared plus 1 is added to the tool speed. For example, Efficiency I adds two to the value, while Efficiency V adds 26. The speed is also increased past (xx×level)% per level of Haste, while Mining Fatigue decreases it by lxx% for level I, 91% for level II, 97.3% for level 3, and 99.19% for all other levels.

If the player’south caput is underwater and they are not wearing a helmet with the Aqua Analogousness enchantment, breaking a cake takes 5 times every bit long. If the thespian’southward feet are not touching the ground, an additional 5x penalty is added; this causes players floating in water to break blocks 25x slower than if they had been standing on land.

The full fourth dimension to break a cake is ever a multiple of
120
of a second, or ane game tick; any balance is rounded upward to the next tick.

Instant breaking

[
]

When breaking a block, a tool and its enchantments practice its speed value equally “damage” to a block every game tick, and when that value exceeds the cake’south hardness times 30, the block breaks. If the tool and enchantments immediately exceed the hardness times 30, the block breaks with no filibuster; otherwise a vi tick (310
second) filibuster occurs earlier the next block begins to break.

For example, a player with Haste Two holding an Efficiency V diamond (or netherite) pickaxe can suspension stone instantly, every bit the damage is (8+26(1+0.iv)=47.half dozen, which is greater than the base of operations hardness of stone (1.5) times 30 (which is 45). Players in creative mode always break blocks instantly regardless of tools or condition effects, except for when wielding a sword, debug stick or a trident, in which case the histrion is unable to break anything.

Adding

[
]

Combining all of the data above yields the following pseudo-code to calculate how long in seconds a player takes to mine a certain block. All operations are floating-point, not integer.

if (isBestTool):   speedMultiplier = toolMultiplier    if (not canHarvest):     speedMultiplier = ane    else if (toolEfficiency):     speedMultiplier += efficiencyLevel ^ 2 + 1   if (hasteEffect):   speedMultiplier *= 0.2 * hasteLevel + 1  if (miningFatigue):   speedMultiplier *= 0.3 ^ min(miningFatigueLevel, 4)  if (inWater and non hasAquaAffinity):   speedMultiplier /= 5  if (not onGround):   speedMultiplier /= v  impairment = speedMultiplier / blockHardness  if (canHarvest):   damage /= 30 else:   damage /= 100  # Instant breaking if (damage > ane):   render 0  ticks = roundup(1 / harm)  seconds = ticks / 20  render seconds

Blocks past hardness

[
]

The following table shows the time it takes to break each type of cake. Values with a cherry-red background indicate that it cannot exist harvested by that quality of tool. If there is no tool that helps speed up mining that block, the “tool” column is left empty. A few blocks are harvested faster with shears or a sword. These speeds are listed in the last 2 columns if different than “null”.

Note that some blocks don’t drib anything even when mined with the proper tool; these are marked with a yellow groundwork.

Any blocks with a breaking time of 0.05 seconds or less can be broken without the
310
second (or 6 ticks) filibuster that occurs between each cleaved block. See instant breaking above.

Any block that has a hardness of infinity ∞ actually has a hardness of -1. However, the breaking ticks start from 0, which ways that effectively information technology tin can never break.

History

[

Java Edition Classic
June 14, 2009 Notch discussed how breaking blocks would work in Survival mode: “Selecting the pickaxe and clicking on a tile will destroy information technology, only different tiles volition take differently long to remove. Stone will be tougher than dirt, and and so. Either way, the delay won’t exist long. Mayhap ane total second for rock.”
Java Edition
1.0.0 Beta 1.9 Prerelease 4 Efficiency enchantment added, which mines blocks faster.
Beta 1.9 Prerelease 6 The mining time of many blocks were made a lot faster, including redstone ore, stone bricks, nether bricks, atomic number 26 bars, doors, monster spawners and obsidian.
Before this update, some of these blocks either had no preferred tool (soul sand, fence), or a pickaxe was required, sometimes with tier requirements, simply the breaking time was consistent regardless of tier. For instance, information technology ever took nearly five.v seconds to mine a furnace with whatsoever type of pickaxe.
Several blocks’ tool weaknesses have been fixed, such as crafting tables now mining faster with an axe and rails now mining faster with a pickaxe.
Mined stairs of whatever materials drop a stair cake now instead of a cake form of its fabric.
1.3.1 12w18a The 1⁄iv second (v tick) delay between block breaking has been removed for players in survival. The histrion tin can now instantly mine a big corporeality of blocks in survival simply by property
destroy
if conditions are met.
12w22a Mining ores (except gold ore and iron ore) rewards the player with feel orbs.
12w23a You can see the block breaking blitheness when other players pause blocks.
12w24a While holding a tool, breaking a cake that can be instantly mined by manus no longer reduces the tool’south durability.
1.4.six 12w50a The Efficiency enchantment no longer applies when mining blocks of the wrong type (ex: Efficiency pickaxes don’t increase the mining speed of dirt). This is a consequence of the new rule “the mining speed of a block is increased simply when it is mined with the correct tool”.
? Switching tools resets a cake’southward brokenness.
1.8 ? The proper tool now increases the breaking speed of a block even if it is not the right form.
Pocket Edition Alpha
? Breaking sounds of blocks drastically changed, from being identical to those of Alpha-esque updates to sounds that were much different depending on if the game was being played on iOS or Android.
0.7.2 Buckets can no longer exist used to literally mine water and lava.[1]
0.12.1 build 12 Breaking sounds are now the same as on PC. Prior to this update, the breaking sounds of most blocks differed greatly on iOS and Android.

Trivia

[
]

  • In the lawmaking, blocks use a hardness value of -ane in guild to make blocks unbreakable.
  • The breaking blitheness is intentionally programmed by the developers to appear off-center on certain blocks such as chests and signs.[2]
  • Mining an ender chest with a wooden pickaxe takes the longest time in the game (16.9 seconds) to mine a block with the correct tool, without the effect of Mining Fatigue and other mining speed reduction events.

Notes

[
]


  1. a
    b
    c

    These blocks cannot be targeted (the block behind them is mined instead), so they cannot be broken, fifty-fifty though in code they take a finite hardness.

  2. The dragon egg can be mined straight simply when there aren’t any air blocks available for it to teleport to. Even so, the dragon egg can be nerveless by other ways.

  3. No version exists with both netherite tools and this block, but the breaking speed can be inferred from hardness.

  4. a
    b
    c

    Chemical science tables are slow to break by hand, similar to blocks that require a pickaxe to mine. However, they all the same drop as items except the Lab Table.

  5. Leaves driblet themselves only if destroyed via a silk touch-enchanted tool or shears; otherwise, they drop saplings and sticks, or apples if it is an oak tree.

  6. Grass drops itself only when broken with shears; using whatever other tool randomly drops seeds.

  7. a
    b

    These blocks accept a
    13
    take chances of dropping themselves.
