Mythril Ore can be spawned into your world by breaking a Demon Altar or a Crimson Altar with a Pwnhammer or Drax. This also applies to other types of ores, such as Cobalt and Adamantite. Upon breaking a second Demon Altar after first loading the world, the Mythril Ore will be placed in your world and the text "Your world has been blessed with Mythril!" will appear. Mythril Ore, together with Cobalt Ore and Adamantite Ore cannot be broken with Explosives.
