Orichalcum Bars are crafted from 4 Orichalcum Ore. They are necessary to make the Orichalcum Anvil, which is needed to create most high-end equipment, and is the equivalent to the Mythril Anvil, thus, making Orichalcum equivalent to Mythril.
Crafting all Orichalcum equipment, including the anvil, requires 186 Orichalcum Bars, or a total of 744 Orichalcum Ore. Without the anvil, you will need 174 bars, or 696 ore.
- Orichalcum Bars can be found within Wood, Iron, and Golden Crates during hardmode without the need of a drill or pickaxe.
- Tools, weapons and armor made of Orichalcum are generally stronger than their Mythril counterparts, but not significantly.
- Selling the ore rather than the bar yields 8 more per orichalcum bar.
- The drill mines slightly faster.
- 1.2.3: Now requires more bars to craft each item.
