Spadebal.gif There are some vague or non-exact figures and information on this page. Some spading is required.

What, if anything, does the enchantment do?


Let's just call this what it is: a one-handed gardening tool, used for taking dirt out of holes.

Okay, so I guess they're not holes until you take the dirt out of them. This is a tool, then, for making things that are not holes into holes.

Type: weapon (1-handed spade)
Damage: 1 - 2

Cannot be traded

You hit for X damage with your spade, David. ZOT! POW! POW!
You dig your can-you-dig-it? into them for X damage, and carefully note that in your spreadsheet, so you can calculate the average damage you're doing over time. ZOT! SPLAT! BOOF!
Your calculations suggest it would be sub-optimal to hit them with the handle of your spade. So you hit them with the blade, instead, and do X damage, saving yourself an average of .5 adventures per run. ZOT! BIFF! KAPOW!
You smack your can-you-dig-it? into it over and over again, shouting, "tell me what algorithm determines the frequency of encountering you!" You don't get an answer, but you do X damage. SPLAT! SOCKO! POW!


  • The item description refers to the phrase To call a spade a spade, even though this is technically a trowel.
  • The first hit message is a reference to the actor David Spade.
  • Spading in the KoL context means a thorough investigation of hidden game features.
