Luminite is a Hardmode ore dropped exclusively by the Moon Lord in stacks of 70–90 (90–110). It can be used to craft Luminite Bars, which can then be used to craft several end-game items, like the Solar, Nebula, Vortex, and Stardust tools and armor.

Crafting all items (excluding ammunition) requires a total of 317 Luminite Bars (1,268 Luminite; requires defeating the Moon Lord 15–19 / 12–15 times). Crafting all items pertaining to one type of Lunar Fragment (i.e., armor, wings, pickaxe, and hamaxe) requires 68 Luminite Bars (204 Luminite) in addition to 85 of the Lunar Fragment; this requires defeating the Moon Lord only 3 / 2-3 times.

Notes[]

  • All items crafted from Luminite produce a faint glow, even with vanity items equipped over them.

Tips[]

  • Selling Void Monoliths nets 1750 (233.33%) more than selling the required Luminite or an equivalent number of Luminite Bars.

Trivia[]

History[]

  • Desktop 1.4.2.1: Fixed an issue where Luminite Ore and Bricks made "Dirt" thud sounds when mined, instead of ore/metal sounds.
