Tungsten Ore

#1Dragonfire358Posted 7/20/2012 10:18:35 AM
I just have a quick question about this ore in the game. Is there any way to turn it into bars(ingots)? becasue I got some last night and couldn't turn it into those with the furnace or anything so I decided to put it in the alchemical tablet and ended up getting about 5 or 6 diamonds made out of it. Is that the only reason it exists in the game, to make diamonds? just wondering.

You could just go to the EAQ's on Eloraam's blog and find out what it's for.

Nothing, yet.

But soon it will be for something.

Tungsten is amazing with equivalent exchange, somehow it's worth more EMC than diamonds, other than that, i believe eloraam hasn't given it any use yet.

Yeah, 1 tungsten = 2 diamonds.

The value really makes me wonder what it's going to be used for.

Well, power crystals and the ores from plasmacraft are worth 49000 or more according to the divining rod, you can't transmute them though.

Since Tungsten is supposed to be a major part of future Redpower tech according to Eloraam, and there are now functional computers and a programming language inside RP, tungsten mechs may not be out of the question, with custom programmable AI and everything.

Iirc Eloraam played a part in deciding the EMC values of RP things when EE added compatibility, so its gotta be used for something pretty major if its worth 2 diamonds already.

But only time will tell.

OK thanks for everyone's input. I guess I got a lot of mining to do to see if I can find more of the stuff so I can start making more diamonds since you need them to make some of the better wiring and machines in the pack.
