Difference between Shovels and Pickaxes in mine-craft.io

Hey, I’m a bit confused. Why would I use a shovel when pickaxes break gravel faster?

While pickaxes indeed break gravel faster, shovels are optimized for breaking sand, dirt, and gravel. They work faster on these materials than other tools, with the exception of gravel. So, for diverse terrains, you’ll want both tools in your inventory.
