Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.

Silver is a mid-value metal which is useful for weapons, ammunition, furniture, decorations, and other objects.

Properties[edit]

Silver has the highest density of all the weapon-grade metals; its additional weight enhances the performance of bludgeoning weapons such as maces, mauls, and war hammers. However, a low shear strength means silver-forged edged weapons such as spears or swords are quite terrible compared to other weapons-grade metals.

In tests in the Object Testing Arena, silver war hammers were found to be the deadliest weapon against humanoids in the size ranges of the civilized races. Silver has somewhat poor yield values, and is more prone to wear than most other weapon grade metals.

While silver swords were said to be the only blades capable of slaying werewolves in legends, steel usually works much better for that purpose in Dwarf Fortress.

Silver may be combined with other metals in a magma smelter or smelter to produce the following alloys:

these reactions may only be performed with bars (not ores)

Despite its name, Nickel silver does not contain any silver.
