Towerwood Planks are an item found mainly Dark Towers in the Twilight Forest. They can also be crafted with Darkwood, the trees of which are found in the Dark Forest nearby. Either way, they may be a worthwhile venture to acquire, as they are fairly abundant in Dark Towers and make a good building material due to their nature grief-resistant potential. Towerwood Planks and their complementing material Encased Towerwood are both just as durable, if not more, as a block of Obsidian, but in a form that has a sprite akin to that of Wooden Planks or of a crate of items (in the case of Encased Towerwood) or some such design. Unlike Obsidian, however, both Towerwood Planks and Encased Towerwood can be pushed and pulled by Pistons.
Towerwood Planks and Encased Towerwood both take just as long as Obsidian to mine by hand and about as long as Obsidian (when using an unenchanted Diamond Pickaxe) if a high-tier item such as the Advanced Chainsaw is used to mine them. Thus, while they may take a large quantity of time to pick up and move, they will also take a similarly long time for griefers to get through and nearly impossible for Creepers or Ghasts to explode, making them a highly grief-resistant material. Towerwood Planks and Encased Towerwood can be used for crafting some of the other blocks that appear in the Dark Tower, such as Reappearing Blocks.
Towerwood Planks and Encased Towerwood are both also completely immune to the effects of Fire and cannot burn. While the top face of the block will burn, the block cannot be destroyed by Fire and the fire will eventually go out. None of the other block faces can be ignited.
It is important to note that, despite their highly durable nature, Towerwood Planks and Encased Towerwood will both be instantly destroyed by a Vajra, as the game code specifies that a Vajra will break all blocks instantaneously without exception.
Even though Towerwood Planks are as durable as Obsidian, they can still be destroyed by a Mining Laser, while Obsidian cannot. This attribute is shared by Encased Towerwood.
