Destroying Obsidian

Postby iTimmie » 10 Jul 2014, 20:02

Is there anyway to destroy Obsidian? I'm trying to make a portal for the challenge and I've placed the Obsidian in the wrong area and it won't work. Submitted two modreqs and the replies are the bog-standard "hurrr duur can't do it".

We, as the Moderation Team, cannot edit your land, and it would be considered cheating to have it removed in any other way aside from you legitimately making means to remove it. The easiest way for you to do it would be to use a diamond pickaxe. Failing that, you could try using the bucket on obsidian feature thing to see if that will work, but I was under the impression that there were limitations on its use. These are specified and enacted by the plugin and therefore may not work, depending on how you placed the obsidian.

This will not work if there are any other obsidian blocks within 5ish (don't quote me on that number) blocks of the obsidian block you're trying to turn into lava
I do things occasionally

you can break obsidian with anything, it just takes around 50 seconds to do so
I have stopped playing on the servers.
The community just isn't the same to me as when I started playing.

Slowly moving on to pastures anew.

Probably should have looked this up earlier, my apologies, but still -

Obsidian has a "base" time of 75 seconds to mine. A diamond pickaxe mines at 8 times basic speed, which brings it to 9.37 seconds. But the diamond pickaxe is also the "proper tool" for this block, so without it, mining takes just over 3 times the base time, which is 250 seconds (4 minutes and 10 seconds).


Obviously, even if you can be bothered to do that without a diamond pick, you won't get the obsidian back.
