Luminite Pickaxes are four Hardmode, post-Moon Lord endgame pickaxes. The four types are the Solar Flare Pickaxe, the Vortex Pickaxe, the Nebula Pickaxe and the Stardust Pickaxe. All types of Luminite pickaxes share the same stats. They are the alternate versions of the Luminite Drills, having a slower mining speed but longer range and benefiting from mining speed bonuses.

These four pickaxes are the second-strongest mining tool in the game, each with 225% pickaxe power. The current strongest is the Laser Drill with 230% pickaxe power. They require Luminite and Lunar Fragments to craft, obtainable from the Moon Lord and Celestial Towers, respectively.

Its best modifier is Legendary. While Light may seem to provide a better speed boost by percentages, rounding reveals that Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds for this tool.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Despite having 5% less mining power than the Laser Drill, the Luminite Pickaxes are twice as fast, and the extra mining power is not needed to harvest any blocks currently in the game.
  • The Shroomite Digging Claw pairs well with Luminite pickaxes, as the claw mines faster, but the pickaxes have a greater range. Additionally, the pickaxes can mine Lihzahrd Bricks.
  • Luminite pickaxes are useful when paired with The Axe or Luminite Hamaxes.
