Palladium Ore is an orange-colored Hardmode ore which can replace Cobalt in a given world. It appears similar to Copper Ore but is slightly more saturated.

Like other Hardmode ores, Palladium is generated upon destruction of an Altar with a Pwnhammer, it is immune to all types of explosions and requires at least a Molten Pickaxe to mine.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Palladium ore spawns at any depth in the Underground and Cavern layers.
  • Selling Palladium Ore will have the same end result as selling Palladium Bars, and both are the most profitable way of selling palladium.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In reality, palladium is an element that has similar properties to platinum. Though elemental palladium is silvery-white in color, it forms several compounds with orange or red-brown color. It has a wide range of applications including jewelry and electronics, but its most common use is as a chemical catalyst.
  • There is a VERY small chance that a meteor can hit a demon altar, spawning a small amount of Palladium Ore, or Cobalt Ore. This will do nothing if it happens before hardmode.
