We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

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.

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.

Their best Modifier is Legendary. While Light may seem to provide a better speed boost by percentages, after rounding Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Despite having 5% less mining power than the Laser Drill, the Luminite Pickaxes are twice as fast, which could be an advantage when mining common blocks, i.e dirt, sand, stone, etc.
  • Luminite pickaxes are useful when paired with The Axe or Luminite Hamaxes.
