It's called Titaniunyte, and your guess is a good as mine for mod. Here's what the game says about it (I have yet to learn how to quantify these numbers and modifiers, so some help would be nice):






Also, apparently it was more components than steel. Though, I'm not totally sure why there would be an option for that crazy recipe and then an option to just smelt it normally. I'm going to have to see what the smeltery says it can do, but I believe there is some bauxite around for the the more complicated recipe if necessary. There is also Scheelite lying around:






Something called Holtrime:




And I remember seeing something called Earth Crystal, but I can't find it.

From what I've found, Titanium is from Aeramore, it's a metal better than steel against edged attacks but worse against blunt ones. It is also quite a bit lighter than steel. It's all-around better than iron.

Tungsten (also from Aeramore) is pretty crappy strength-wise, but it is heavier than silver, so perhaps it could make decent hammers if it's weapon-grade.

Holtrime (also also from Aeramore) is weapon-grade, but worse than iron. It can be used for enchanting weapons though, in an Arcaneforge. You need an Arcanium anvil for that though, and magma access. Arcanium crystals shouldn't be all too rare (though with all the concurrence maybe they are), but nonetheless I think it is meant for later in the game.

The earth crystals could be whatever, the only material I found called "earth crystal" was seemingly only used for some Mushroom Kingdom boss, so they are probably called something else.

So for now it's tungsten thwackers and holtrime armor. The chance of early fort collapse due to monsters is acceptable right now. For invaders it would be good to find something slashy and stabby, so perhaps digging deeper would be of use.

At this point that's largely what I'm thinking, but considering that the main room coincides with a magnetite patch I might B-line it to steel armor until we find some other wonder ore.

I'd love to get a koopa to my name too, just "Eric."

I'd like to say spellcrafts can help with the combat, but it really can't. The only custom material it offers that's accessible and better than copper is reinforced bone, made from critters' bones. Otherwise, you need iron to produce enchanted iron, which is only slightly better material properties wise than iron, inferior to steel. There's studded leather, which requires bones and raw hides, and will offer slightly better protection versus wildlife.

Otherwise, there's combat magic. The school of medisephos has healing spells, a holy spike spell and a subdueing (paralysis/sleep) spell. Hyazith offers fire spells, which are obviously going gloriously already as koopas naturally have fire magic, and ice spells, which are little more than a nuisance to armored opponents.
