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.

Orichalcum Ore is a magenta-colored Hardmode Ore which can replace Mythril in a given world. It requires a pickaxe power of 110 to mine (Cobalt/Palladium Pickaxe or better, or any drill). Like all Hardmode Ores, Orichalcum is generated upon destruction of a Demon/Crimson Altar with a Pwnhammer or any better hammer.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • On a small map Orichalcum spawns below a depth of 1,000 feet (500 tiles).
  • On a medium map Orichalcum spawns below a depth of 1,400 feet (700 tiles).
  • On a large map Orichalcum spawns below a depth of 2,000 feet (1,000 tiles).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In real life, orichalcum is a legendary metal described by Plato in his work Critias to have been mined in the lost city of Atlantis. It is suspected to have been a sort of alloy involving copper.
  • While the in-game colour is magenta, orichalcum is speculated to be a more reddish hue.
    • It likely was made this color to avoid confusion with Palladium Ore.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Selling the ore rather than the bar yields 8 Silver Coin more per 4 orichalcum ore.
