There are several classes of mining items.
Pickaxes is the most basic mining item and can crafted and thus easy to be obtained. They have an average active and passive mining power.
Idols have a high extra passive damage but a neglectable active damage, thus they are generally used when player is away from keyboard. Idols can be obtained from reward of tower progress contribution, or from certain rooms in the tower.
Mining hammers have a high active damage and maximum charge, but a small passive damage bonus. It is designed for active mining.
In general, at least in low tier (iron or before), using pickaxes have a higher mining efficiency when playing full effort when comparing with idols.
