Ho! Tom Bombadil, Tom Bombadillo!

By water, wood and hill, by the reed and willow,
By fire, sun and moon, harken now and hear us!
Come, Tom Bombadil, for our need is near us!

The Fellowship of the Ring, In the House of Tom Bombadil

Reed is a plant that grows in wetlands, fens and along the banks of rivers and lakes in many biomes and are especially abundant in watery biomes such as rivers and swamps.

Growth Edit

These plants grow much like sugar cane, however only in water. When you place a piece of reed on the surface of river or lake, it will instantly grow down to the bottom. You can't break it below the water surface, only above. When you break it, you'll receive as many pieces as are above the water. After a while it will grow higher, just like sugar cane. That way, you are able to farm it. Reed generates both as fresh reed and as the dried variant (as of Public Beta 28).

Uses Edit

heat needed
Furnace
fresh reed
any kind of fuel
dried reed
When placed in a furnace or Hobbit oven (no other type of forge works), one receives a dried variant, which can then be used for crafting.

Crafting Edit

As of Public Beta 25, blowguns can be crafted using one stick and two fresh reeds. As of Public Beta 26, three fresh reeds could be used to craft paper.

After drying the reeds in a furnace, they can be crafted into a reed basket, or into reed blocks, using the 2x2 crafting grid or a standard crafting table. These blocks, in turn, can then be used as building material, or crafted into stairs, slabs and bars on a standard crafting table as shown below:

Trivia Edit

  • Although, reed bars make a very nice fence and seem optically the same height, they are slightly lower. So it's possible for the player and for farm animals to hop over. To prevent this, make them 2 blocks high.
  • Reeds originally could only be harvested with shears. However this was altered in Public Beta 25.1, allowing the player to break it with their hand.
