Demonite Ore is a pre-Hardmode ore. It is the Corruption counterpart to the Crimson's Crimtane Ore, and will not appear naturally in Crimson worlds. It can be found very rarely in small veins underground in worlds that contain Corruption, however the only usable quantities come from bosses, namely Eater of Worlds, and from the Eye of Cthulhu in worlds naturally containing Corruption. Demonite Ore emits a faint blue glow when placed, similar to Crimtane Ore.

The pickaxe power required to mine Demonite Ore changes with location. When below 0ft in elevation, a Gold Pickaxe or better is needed, otherwise any pickaxe can be used.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Demonite Ore does not spread the Corruption whatsoever.
  • Demonite Ore and its counterpart Crimtane Ore can be mined extremely early-game with Bombs, though because they are both very rare this is not a very viable method to gather any appreciable amount.
  • Very rarely, Demonite Ore can spawn extremely close to the surface.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Console VersionMobile Version Selling the bar rather than the ore yields an extra 800*8 per bar, as an ore sells for 800*8 and the bar sells for 3200*32. The bar is the most profitable way to sell Demonite.
  • Desktop Version As of 1.4, Demonite Ores have increased value and Demonite Bars have decreased value, such that one makes the same amount of money selling via the ores or the bars. Hence, it is more efficient to sell the ores.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The placed block texture of Demonite Ore seems to represent scales.
