The Sharpening Stone: Essential Maintenance for Superior Combat Readiness

The Sharpening Stone in SL Colonies is crucial for maintaining the edge of your bladed weapons, ensuring you remain effective in both player versus environment (PvE) and player versus player (PvP) scenarios. This tool guarantees your swords, axes, and other blades deliver maximum damage, providing a significant advantage in combat.


Key Features

  2. Ease of Use: Utilizing the Sharpening Stone is straightforward. A simple left-click on the stone sits you on the station. Holding down ‘C’ on your keyboard spins the wheel and a minigame will start to play, requiring you to use your arrow keys in the directions shown on your screen.
  3. Customizable Design: Owners can modify the Sharpening Stone’s appearance and functionality. This includes resizing, changing the mesh, and linking new components, allowing for personalized customization to fit any player’s aesthetic preferences.
