The Wooden Crate is the lowest tier of crate, having the least value if sold directly. Like other crates, you must get them by going fishing. While they nominally offer the least valuable rewards, this is the only crate tier which drops ores. As such, they are one of the few sources for "alternate" ores, and the only source for "alternate" Hardmode ores.
- You can receive up to six different types of items from one crate (Anchor, Coins, Ores, Bars, Normal Potions, Healing/Mana Potions).
- You always get at least one item, as empty crates are re-rolled. This also raises final average yield somewhat.
- Crates will have much better drops in hardmode. If you are well into pre-hardmode, it is probably wise to save them until later.
