The Spectre Pickaxe is a Hardmode, post-Plantera pickaxe. It has no drill counterpart, contrary to the other Hardmode pickaxes. The Spectre Pickaxe has an increased range of three blocks, compared to other pickaxes. This can prove as a slight advantage for not being able to mine any stronger block.
It can mine any block except Lihzahrd Bricks.
Its best Modifier is Legendary. While Light may seem to provide a better speed boost by percentages, rounding reveals that Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds for this tool.
