The last few days I was farming gold and ash (mostly ash) at the vulcano and as making obsidian bars itself is just annoying as hell (the forge with its opening where you die and that damn fight around the forge, but the most frustrating part is to waiting time…), I never bothered to take any obsidian with home. Because why? I already have obsidian tools and >200 bars. I always use the master repair kit (3 hardened steel bars) to fix them 3/4 and now with the black blood tools, why should anyone bother with obsidian?
Is it really intended, that people throw most of the obsidian ores away, because you need ash/gold and for that you farm obsidian?
Could you make something else out of the obsidian ores? Glas? Tinted glas? Jewels? Lamps? So “deco” stuff?
