Source[edit | edit source]
Every tile has 0 hit points to start. Once a tile's "hit points" hit 100, the tile is destroyed. A tile's hit points are increased every time it is hit with a pickaxe. Certain tiles will reduce the amount of damage done to them. These tiles include:
||Pickaxe Power * 2|
|All other blocks not listed, i.e., , etc.||Pickaxe Power * 1|
|Pickaxe Power / 2|
||Pickaxe Power / 3|
||Pickaxe Power / 4|
|Pickaxe Power / 5|
This determines how many picks it takes to destroy a block. After determining the damage done to a block, Terraria will then determine if you should be breaking the block instantly, or not at all.
- Here are all the instances where Terraria stops the destruction of a tile-
|Pickaxe power below 65%, Trying to break Ebonstone or Crimstone|
|Pickaxe power below 65%, Trying to break Pearlstone|
|Pickaxe power below 50%, Trying to break Meteorite|
