Update 0.8.0

Redstone (a.k.a Redstone Dust) is an item that was added in Update 0.8.0. It is obtained from mining Redstone Ore or killing a Witch.

It is possible to obtain Redstone Dust from Redstone Ore with an Iron Pickaxe or higher. As of Update 0.14.0, Redstone has a chance to be dropped by Witches when killed.

Uses

Redstone is mainly used for wiring to make mechanisms. It is also a crafting ingredient used in many components used to make such mechanisms. Redstone is also an important ingredient for Brewing, which when used extends a Potion's effect period for a certain amount of time.
