The Adamantite Pickaxe is a Hardmode pickaxe, and is the pickaxe alternative to the Adamantite Drill, having a slower mining speed but longer range and benefiting from mining speed bonuses. Its alternate ore counterpart, the Titanium Pickaxe, is faster than the Adamantite Pickaxe.
It can mine any block except Chlorophyte Ore and Lihzahrd Bricks.
Its best modifier is Legendary. While Light may seem to provide a better speed boost by percentages, rounding reveals Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds.
- Early into Hardmode, save your Adamantite for armor and weapons, as the Adamantite Pickaxe doesn't allow you to mine any new blocks that the Mythril and Orichalcum pickaxes and drills wouldn't.
