Platinum Ore is an early-game ore that spawns in the Underground and Cavern biomes, as well as on Floating Islands. Its primary use is in crafting Platinum Bars, which are used to make the fourth tier of equipment and several other items. Platinum Ore is the superior counterpart to Gold Ore, which can generate in its place in some worlds.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Selling the four ores used rather than one bar yields Silver Coin more per platinum bar.
  • Can be confused with Silver Ore under certain lighting.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Platinum is a real element. It has many uses, but is typically known for being even rarer than gold. This was embedded in the original role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons (featuring copper, silver, gold, and platinum coins), and has since become a gaming trope in its own right, which is continued by Terraria's coin system.
