From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Drills are a type of Hardmode tools and an alternative to pickaxes. A Cobalt Drill/Palladium Drill is required to mine Mythril Ore/Orichalcum Ore, and a Mythril Drill/Orichalcum Drill is required to mine Adamantite Ore/Titanium Ore.

3DS Version The Drax is pre-Hardmode, found in Shadow Chests.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Appearance, sound, and possible modifiers aside, drills are functionally identical to their pickaxe counterpart. The Orichalcum Drill is the exception from this rule, being significantly slower than the Orichalcum Pickaxe.
  • Unlike a pickaxe, whose animation (swinging around the player) will be the same no matter where the player "aims" it, a drill will follow the cursor. Although more realistic, this detail may cause digging to become slightly harder because the cursor is nearly always obscured by the drill head.
  • If a drill is used for a minute without stopping, it will stop working and need to be restarted by clicking/pressing the button again. This is because drills are actually long-lasting channel projectiles when used, similar to the Magic Missile.
  • Drills may mine slightly slower than pickaxes because they are not affected by melee-speed modifiers. Players who want to maximize mining speed should avoid using drills, because the benefits provided by melee speed enhancements apply only to pickaxes.
    • However, clicking "resets" the digging process, so clicking rapidly on a stronger block (such as Adamantite) can mine far quicker than a pickaxe with no modifiers, albeit with a little more effort.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.2:
    • Drills are no longer materials.
    • Each drill now has a pickaxe equivalent, for those who don't like drills.
