Important Questions

What is a Furnace?

It looks simple yet its end-products offer many benefits.

It’s an unsellable piece of equipment that turns ores into bars. You also need to get on a unit of coal to get its end products successfully. Each ore has its due time process. Some may take at least half-hour or more. 

Moreover, you can get it for free by completing the Blacksmith’s Bundle in the Boiler Room at the Community Center. But you can still make it by collecting a few items and obtaining its recipe.

You can obtain a Furnace’s blueprint for free once you’ve obtained at least one Copper Ore. A cutscene gets triggered the next day from around 6:00 AM to 11:30 AM, and Clint will share its recipe. You only need several pieces of Copper Ore (20) and Stones (25) to craft it. 

How to Use a Furnace?

Before producing Furnace items, you first need to gather resources from mining sites like Skull Cavern, Quarry, and Mines. You may consider breaking crates and barrels since they contain these ores. And make sure to carry your starter sword or better weapons as these areas have monsters like Dust Sprites and Ghosts.

While the Blacksmith Shop also sells these items, it’ll help you gather them quicker. Additionally, a furnace requires specific amounts of resources and one coal. Here are the things you can make as you fill your inventory with the ingredients you need:
