![mcMMO Banner](http://i.imgur.com/1tX0i.png) --- **Excavation** in mcMMO provides a passive ability to dig more blocks and find treasures buried beneath the earth. What you find is based on your skill level and the type of material you are excavating.

XP Gain

Experience is gained by using a shovel to break dirt, grass, sand and clay.

Active Abilities

###Giga Drill Breaker Right-clicking with a Shovel in hand will activate Giga Drill Breaker. For a short period of time, it will allow you to instantly break any block that is most effective when broken with a shovel. The duration depends on level and server configuration.

##Passive Abilities

###Treasure Hunt Each time you dig a block, there is a chance to obtain items you would not normally get from digging. See the table below for possible drop information.

There might be more than one drop per one dug block. Occasionally, Treasure Hunt will bug.

  • Giga Drill Breaker is a reference to the anime: "Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann".
  • Digging up a cake is more rewarding than digging up a diamond, but diamonds are generally higher in demand.
