Orichalcum Ore is the alternative to Mythril Ore and as such, can only be mined by a Cobalt Drill/Pickaxe or higher. To have the ore appear in the world, the player must destroy a Crimson Altar or Demon Altar in Hardmode. Once smelted into Orichalcum Bars, it can be used to craft various weapons, tools, and armor. It can be obtained through crates in the Ocean biome and opening them once the player is in Hardmode.

Notes

  • Orichalcum Ore is a stronger alternative to mythril.
  • Orichalcum Ore is the hardest Hardmode ore to pronounce.
