Guildmaster Tony's mattock is an augmentable mattock and hero item, which requires level 99 Archaeology to use.

Similar to Tavia's fishing rod, Guildmaster Tony's mattock is obtained by having a required item beforehand; in this case, players must have a shadowy key and use it on the case housing the mattock, upstairs in the Archaeology Guild main building. Receiving a distorted key instead signifies a failed 1/10 chance roll for the shadowy key. Both of these keys are obtained from the ancient casket which is located using a tetracompass. There is a 1/1,000 chance to roll for the key, making the shadowy key a 1/10,000 reward.

When excavating with Guildmaster Tony's mattock, there is a small chance that the mattock will draw the player's attention to a nearby artefact, allowing them to discover it immediately. There is also a chance of yielding an additional material, indicated by the message "Guildmaster Tony's mattock temporarily increases your focus, yielding an additional material." When this happens, experience is awarded for both excavated materials. This effect also applies to material caches. There is no cooldown for either of the mattock's effects.
