Octine tools are much like their iron counterparts from the Overworld. They have the same base damage, attack speed and mining speed as iron tools. Like all Betweenlands tools, Octine Tools deal more damage in the Betweenlands than vanilla tools. In addition, the Octine Sword has a chance to set enemies it hits on fire for 10 seconds, and the Octine Pickaxe is the first available pickaxe that can mine Valonite Ore and Life Crystal Ore.
Octine Tools will be made in a "Good as new!" state of corrosion, with 0/255 corrosion points. Simply being in your inventory will cause them to start becoming corroded; using and swinging the tool as well as being in water will increase the tool's rate of corrosion. Corrosion decreases the damage output and effectiveness of the tool.
A corroded tool can be cleaned in the Purifier, resetting its corrosion value back to 0. A tool can also be applied with Scabyst to give it up to 600 coating points, which keep the corrosion level static until they are depleted. Visit the Mechanics page for more details on corrosion.
As with all swords, Octine Swords can be equipped with Middle Gems as part of the Middle Gem Circle and to apply an additional buff to the player using them. The type of gem equipped can be seen visibly on the sword as well as in its tooltip.
Unlike iron tools, however, there is no Octine Hoe, as farming in the Betweenlands involves Compost instead.

- 1 Octine Sword + 1 Middle Gem = applies Middle Gem to sword (sword and gem type shown as example)
- 1 Octine Tool + between 1 and 8 Scabyst = coats Betweenlands tool (shapeless, adds 75 points per piece added, pickaxe shown as example)
- Purify non-coated Octine Tool = clean Betweenlands tool (axe shown as example)
