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 Desktop and Console, excluding the Hellfire Arrow, requires 192 Hellstone Bars. On Old-gen console, Mobile, and , it requires 175 Bars. This translates to 576 / 525 Hellstone and 192 / 175 Obsidian.
