Guide talk:Getting Started with Hardmode
A sword (Breaker Blade would be the best, but Night's Edge can do) OR/AND A spear (Dark lance of course.) AND(optional) A spell (Better the Demon Scythe) Of course, you also need a good armor and much life, because the mobs in Hardmode hurts much (see Mobs) Then, you need to find demon altars and break theses with the Pwnhammer. Breaking a Demon Altar summons a wraith, so be careful not to break too much demon altars or break one in the night.
(next is coming soon)
Melee only[edit source]
It seems that this guide focuses on melee players with only slight mentions of ranged and magic equipment. I think it should be adjusted to include all three. Jjman740 (talk) 16:43, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
The part about souls of sight is outdated, the Hallowed Repeater no longer uses them in its crafting recipe. 126.96.36.199 15:39, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
BTW, the Demon Scythe is excellent in early hardmode. 188.8.131.52 15:46, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
