The Picksaw is a Hardmode Pickaxe/Axe that has a 12.5% (1/8) chance of being dropped by the Golem boss. It is the usually the first pickaxe the player can obtain that will break Lihzahrd Bricks (the Laser Drill also mines those), and can mine all blocks in the game.
Its best modifier is Legendary. However, the Light, Agile, Deadly, Quick, and Nasty modifiers will all provide an identical speed bonus to Legendary. Since mining is only affected by speed (and not damage), it has six optimal modifiers, making reforge costs cheap.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- It does slightly less damage to enemies than the Pickaxe Axe (37), Chlorophyte Pickaxe (40), and Shroomite Digging Claw (45). If the player has good weapons, this should not be too much of a concern, however.
- It has a lower range bonus than the Spectre Pickaxe (+3).
- It has a longer use time than the Shroomite Digging Claw (11). However it is able to mine Lihzahrd Bricks and has +1 range bonus.
- Because the Picksaw has a use time close to the Shroomite Digging Claw, the use of full Mining armor along with other melee and mining speed boosts can bring its speed exceptionally close to the Shroomite Digging Claw, with the added perk of more range, and the ability to mine Lihzahrd bricks.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Picksaw is referenced in the Drax's tooltip: 'Not to be confused with a picksaw'.
- It would technically be more appropriate to put it in the Pickaxe Axe's tooltip, as the Drax is a drill with the ability of a chainsaw, while the Pickaxe Axe, similar to the Picksaw, is a pickaxe with the ability of an axe.
- "Picksaw" is a portmanteau of the words "pickaxe" and "saw", because it can perform the actions of both (just like the Drax serving as both a drill and axe, and the Pickaxe Axe serving as a pickaxe and an axe).
