The Adamantite Pickaxe is a Hardmode pickaxe, and is the pickaxe alternative to the Adamantite Drill. This tool can be used for those who prefer to use pickaxes, or for those who find the drill's noise to be annoying. Appearances and sounds aside, the two tools are functionally identical (except for that the Adamantite Pickaxe inflicts knockback, whereas the Adamantite Drill does not). However, unlike drills, pickaxes are reforged with any melee modifiers, including size, speed, and knockback.
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, after rounding, Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds.
- Early into Hardmode, save your Adamantite for armor and weapons, as the pickaxes and drills one tier down (made from Mythril Bars or Orichalcum Bars) will mine the same blocks.
