Metallurgy adds a huge variety of metals to Minecraft. Each of these can be crafted into a wide variety of tools, armor, weapons, and aesthetic blocks.
Metallurgy adds a total of 23 new ores to the Overworld, 10 new ores in the Nether, and 2 in the End. Every dimension gets at least a couple of new ores, vastly increasing the amount of items you’ll be mining for. These materials range in quality from copper, about as strong as stone, to sanguinite, which is far stronger even than diamond.
Metallurgy also adds the ability to make alloys of these materials which are even stronger than the base materials. The strongest material of all, Tartarite, is an alloy of Adamantine and Atlarus. These alloys can be made using the machines provided by the Metallurgy mod itself, or in a Smeltery provided by the Tinker’s Construct mod.
Those machines are another important aspect of the mod. The Crusher, Alloyer, and Forge offer new ways to process metals and materials, giving you more metal per ore than simple smelting would get you. The ores can also be smelted and ground in machines added by other mods such as Buildcraft, as well as being smeltable in the Tinkers’ Construct Smeltery.
Each metal offers unique-looking armor and tools to be crafted. In contrast to the vanilla armor and tools, which look the same except for what material they are made of, every Metallurgy armor has a distinct look based on its material, and the tools and weapons also have unique elements like pommel stones, ornate crossguards, and much more fine detail than is visible on their vanilla counterparts.

Metallurgy 4 really recaptures the thrill of playing Minecraft for the first time, finding a new, unknown material, and taking it home to see what it does. This mod will add hours of playtime to your game as you seek the new materials and alloys. Equipping yourself in the best armor will take time, but there is no question that it will be worth it.
