Hellstone Bars are bars crafted from Hellstone and Obsidian. They craft some of the most powerful equipment available pre-Hardmode, and remain useful, if not necessary, in dealing with the shift in difficulty. Notably, the Molten Pickaxe is one of only two pre-Hardmode pickaxes capable of mining the first tier of Hardmode ores (the other being Reaver Shark), Cobalt and Palladium.
Crafting all items on PC, excluding Hellfire Arrow, requires 192 Hellstone Bars (175 on console/mobile). This translates to 576 Hellstone (525 on console/mobile) and 192 Obsidian (175 on console/mobile).
