Scabyst is an item obtained by mining Scabyst Ore which generates deep underground in the Betweenlands. It is a material item that can be used to 'coat' any Betweenlands tool affected by Corrosion, with a tooltip.
Coating, similar to corrosion, is a value [0,600] on tools that is initially at 0. Each piece of Scabyst applied to the tool gives it 75 coating points; any number between 1 and 8 can be crafted with the tool at once. The points will deplete over time, and as long as the value is above 0, the tool's corrosion level is kept static at whatever level it was at when coated. The tool will stay coated until the coating points are fully depleted; however, the tool cannot be purified in the Purifier to reset its corrosion level while coating is active.
- 1 corrodable Betweenlands tool + between 1 and 8 Scabyst = coats Betweenlands tool (shapeless, adds 75 points per piece added, pickaxe shown as example)
