    Bronze Statues are a series of elegant and powerful statues that may be traded or placed in your community as Decorative Items.
    Placement of a decorative Bronze Statue requires Stone for the base of the statue plus a Bronze Statue. You can “F” key through the series to choose which statue you prefer.
    The Forge and the Foundry require Bronze + Furnace Fuel to make Bronze Statues.

    Tools are used by every profession. Some professions, like Miners, use up tools faster than others. So if you have a lot of mines, you may want to have more durable tools. These are the best tools - even better than Steel Tools. 
    They have the highest rating for usage/durability: 265. This means they will last over 2 1/2 times longer than Iron Tools.
    Bronze Tools are made at a Forge or Foundry, using Bronze + Logs.
