They are used to craft some of the most powerful equipment available pre-Hardmode, and remain useful, if not necessary, in dealing with the shift in difficulty upon entering Hardmode. Notably, the Molten Pickaxe is the only pre-Hardmode pickaxe capable of mining the first tier of Hardmode ores, Cobalt and Palladium.
