Tools are items that are required to harvest resources in the world of Albion. They can either be equipped or kept in the inventory in order to harvest. If equipped they occupy the mainhand and the offhand slot, behaving like a two-handed weapon.
Players can harvest one tier above the tier of their tool. For example with a T2 axe, players can harvest T3 wood if they have unlocked the proper skill, but a t5 axe will be able to harvest flat 6 or 6.0 wood, but not the enchanted wood (6.1, 6.2, 6.3). Using tools to harvest one tier above takes more time.
Tools are crafted at the Toolmaker.
