Luminite Pickaxes are four Hardmode, post-Moon Lord endgame pickaxes. The four types are the Solar Flare Pickaxe, the Vortex Pickaxe, the Nebula Pickaxe and the Stardust Pickaxe. All types of Luminite pickaxes share the same stats. They are the alternate versions of the Luminite Drills, having a slower mining speed but longer range and benefiting from mining speed bonuses.
The combination of their very fast attack speed and high damage (nearly double the next highest pickaxe's damage) allows them to kill most enemies with ease, reducing the need to switch to a dedicated weapon while mining.
