Demonite ore was the only ore that wasn't mined in previous versions. It is dropped by boss monsters, but is now also generated naturally in veins like other ores. Demonite ore is commonly found in 3-5 block veins, but is more plentiful near chasms. Combined with 暗影鳞片s from the 世界吞噬者 it can be used to craft high tier 工具, weapons, and armor. 熔炼4个矿石可得 恶魔锭.
Crimtane ore is the 猩红之地 analogue to 恶魔矿石. It is dropped by the 猩红之地 boss monsters and can be found in small veins. Requires 4 ore per 猩红矿锭. Can be combined with Tissue Samples to create Crimson weapons and armor.
在破坏一个暗影球之后,一颗陨石也许会在世界的某个地方降落, generating a large amount of Meteorite Ore and constantly spawning 陨石怪s when the player is near. Meteorite burns the player unless they equip an 黑曜石头骨, an 黑曜石护盾,an 黑曜石头盔,an 生命之符盾 or have drank an 黑曜石肤药剂. Requires 4 ore per 陨铁锭. Meteor Heads also have a 2% chance to drop Meteorite.
Generated when lava and water collide. Obsidian appears as an Ore and is gathered similarly, but has no bar form on its own; though it is required in order to craft the essential Hellstone Bars.
Found only in the Underworld layer of the world, Hellstone burns the player without the protection of an 黑曜石头骨, 黑曜石护盾, 生命之符盾 or the 黑曜石肤药剂. Hellstone is the strongest ore available for tools, weapons, and armor without activating 上位. Requires 1 黑曜石 and 4 Hellstone per 狱炎锭. A Hellforge must be used to smelt Hellstone bars, not a normal forge. Players can find 地狱熔炉s in the Underworld, but they can only be freed using a 噩梦镐, or any higher tier pickaxe-like item, or even by removing the blocks below them.
After destroying a 恶魔祭坛 (which requires using a 神锤•无坚不摧 or 神圣钻头), 钴蓝矿石, 秘银矿石, and 精金矿石 will appear in the 地下 and 洞穴层. Those ores can be found particularly easily near lava in the cavern layer, in the 下界 roof and in the intersection between both.
- Each hardmode ore is chosen at the moment you break the first three altars in the world. You can choose the ores you like by quitting your world without saving (by ending the task or killing the process) after smashing your first altars. It is easier done with a server.
