Block Shop

Block Shop Block.

The Block Shop is where you can buy blocks for gold pieces.

You can only purchase blocks that you have already unlocked. You unlock blocks by locating and picking up the blueprint for them. Another way to unlock a block is to prospect it or just mine it.

Originally there was a limit (to depth 200) on where you could bring Item Shops or Block Shops, however (as a glitch/game exploit) you could simply ignore the message telling you about the limit and continue moving with the shop blocks still in your inventory.

The Block Shop and the Item Shop have a blueprint collectable in all game modes, but in Normal or Peaceful, you are able to craft it from the start.

Block Shops are made with the following order from top left to bottom right: Iron, Diamond, Flint, Coal, Carbon, Gold, Gold Pieces, Wood Plank, and a Chest.

When looking at the sell prices for blocks, the sell price will vary at a range of prices, from about 1/3 the initial buying price to 1/4.

  • Block shops are found that if a block sells for its maximum price, other blocks will sell around it's maximum price too.
  • It is possible to obtain the block shop as a drop from the Spider mob.
  • When playing on Hardcore mode, you do not start with any shops. However, later on, at a random depth, it is possible to find the blueprints for both shops, in order to create them, and retain their use later on in the game.
  • When starting a new game in any circumstances, the shops will both be generated in th spawn point, on top of a 5x3x1 Granite platform. This is not true for the Hardcore Game mode.
