Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

Is there a guide for this mod?

Read the advancements. They contain tons of detailed information about what materials are interesting, as well as recipes for alloys. Note that two of the advancement have Alloy Forgery Forge Controllers in them. These are direct hints in what Tier you need to forge the specific alloys.

How do I make alloys?

Create an Alloy Forge. In a general unmodified Mythic Metals context a Tier 2 Forge can create any alloy.

How do I craft X?

All recipes follow vanilla patterns. For example when crafting a pickaxe follow the pickaxe pattern (i.e. 3 stone and two sticks), or use the associating smithing template.

The rest, including Alloy Recipes, can be viewed using recipe viewers like Roughly Enough Items or EMI. As of writing Just Enough Items (JEI) is not supported.

Where can I find X?

Most of the ores spawn in the Overworld, some spawn in The Nether. End Stone Starrite spawns in The End. There are some biome-exclusive ores, listed here:

  • Aquarium: Spawns in Aquatic Biomes, like Rivers and Oceans
  • Prometheum: Spawns in Warm Biomes, like Lush Caves, or Jungles
  • Osmium: Spawns in Mountains

For where ores spawn specifically, this will eventually make its way into the wiki in the Material section. For now you can enjoy this chart made by Mkat420 (yes, it is still mostly accurate)

chart displaying the various ore heights for all the ores in mythic metals

  • Overworld: spawns anywhere in the #mythicmetals:mythic_ore_biomes tag, which includes #c:in_overworld
  • Aquarium: spawns anywhere in the #c:aquatic tag
  • Prometheum: spawns anywhere in the #mythicmetals:prometheum_biomes tag, which includes #minecraft:is_jungle
  • Osmium: spawns anywhere in the #mythicmetals:osmium_biomes tag, which includes #c:mountain and #c:extreme_hills
  • The Nether and The End are currently not tag-driven, and simply uses Fabric API to insert into all relevant biomes. In the future this might be changed.

What does X material do?

This one will eventually be answered once the Material section is filled out. For now you can see the following subquestions:

How does Branding work?

You apply the Heat status effect to your targets by hitting them with a Palladium tool, and once they are hot enough light them on fire to make them combust! This heavily increases the fire damage and duration of their burn. Use this to your advantage in places where water is scarce (or simply drain the nearby water). The way this works is that the effect applies Fire Vulnerability. An extra effect of this is that Fire Resistance will not make you fully immune against burning, only reducing the damage.

What does the Prometheum abilities do?


  • Prometheum will automatically repair itself
  • For armor, it must be equipped for this to take effect
  • For tools, it must be in your main hand or off hand to repair itself


  • Regrowth will track how much durability has been restored
  • Once you hit a threshold of around 2000 durability regained, the armor will gain additional stats
  • The regrowth self-repair effect will also increase on tools


  • If you apply Curse of Binding on the Armor, it will gain additional stats, as well as increase the self-repair effect more.

Where can I find Smithing Templates?

Here are the directions of how to obtain the Smithing Tables (up-to-date as of 0.18.2):

How do I upgrade a Mythril Drill?

Any item with the tooltip "Mythril Drill Upgrade" should be insertable in the Mythril Drill. Simply right click the upgrade item onto the drill to insert it. A video example is below. This is the same mechanics as the Bundle uses.

For the available list of Drill Upgrades, see the following table:

Method Description Relevant versions
Enchanted Midas Gold Block Golden Luck - Gives you +2 Luck while holding the drill, and randomly drops raw gold when breaking an ore. 0.18.0+
Prometheum Bouquet Slowly repairs the durability of the drill. 0.18.0+
Aquarium Pearl Aqua Affinity - Increases your mining speed underwater, and restores a small amount of air when breaking an ore. 0.17.0+
Stormyx Shell Banglum Defuser - Drastically reduces the chance of Banglum exploding. 0.17.0+
Carmot Stone +1 Fortune - Increases the level of Fortune on your drill by one level. 0.18.0+

How much Midas Gold can you fold onto a Midas Gold Sword?

I don't remember the exact amount. It stops getting new stats after 20 stacks of blocks, I think...

What blocks can I put into the Carmot Staff?

Literally anything inside the vanilla Minecraft and Mythic Metals. You cannot put a used Shulker Box though, as you would void your items doing so.

Any Blocks in the #mythicmetals:carmot_staff_blocks are considered unique, and have an associated effect. See the following table:

Block Description Relevant Versions
Iron Fling opponents up, makes the staff stronger. 0.14.0+
Gold Grant yourself luck for two minutes. 0.14.0+
Copper Summon lightning on yourself. 0.14.0+
Diamond Makes the staff stronger. 0.14.0+
Bronze Smite whoever you strike with lightning. 0.14.0+
Netherite Powerful melee weapon, makes the staff much stronger. 0.14.0+
Metallurgium Highest single hit damage in the entire mod, but extremely slow. 0.14.0+
Carmot Heals you and everything around you for 10 points (5 hearts) of health. 0.14.2+
Midas Gold Grants you and everyone around you Luck 2 for four minutes. 0.14.2+
Runite Barrages your enemies in ice, freezing them in place. 0.14.2 to 0.16.4
Star Platinum Lets you swing the staff really fast. 0.14.2+
Beacon Grants players in a large radius (18 blocks) a random beacon effect for 30 seconds. 0.14.2+
Lapis Grants more experience to the user while being held. 0.14.2+
Stormyx Creates a forcefield while holding that reflects projectiles. 0.16.0+
Sponge Removes water in a 12 block radius. 0.17.0+
Hallowed Makes the staff much stronger. 0.17.0+


No. The reason is simple - I do not have the time to do so. I would much rather actually finish Mythic Metals and get it out of beta before considering porting it to an entirely different loader
