Mythril Ore is a Hardmode ore that appears in the world every two out of three Demon Altars or Crimson Altars that have been destroyed. Note that its equivalent, Orichalcum Ore, may spawn instead.

Mythril Ore is found throughout the Cavern layer as well as in most Hardmode Crates. It requires a pickaxe power of 110 to mine (Cobalt/Palladium pickaxe or better, or any drill).

To craft all Mythril equipment, a total of 155 Bars (or 620 Ore) is required.
