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