As new player of Terraria, I’m lost with all the ores that are in game.
So, what are the tiers of the ores?
I don’t know for example if gold is better than iron (for example in Minecraft iron is much better than gold)
As of 1.2, every world gets either one or the other generated:
Standard Ores can be found almost everywhere underground:
And these ores are always generated:
- Meteorites fall after breaking a least one Shadow Orb or Demon Heart.
- Hellstone is found almost anywhere in The Underworld.
- Chlorophyte is found in the Underground Jungle after hardmode is activated.
- Luminite is dropped by the Moon Lord.
Additionally, Hallowed Bars drop from certain hardmode bosses.
Luminite > Chlorophyte > Hallowed > Titanium > Adamantite > Orichalcum > Mythrill > Palladium > Cobalt > Hellstone > Demonite/Crimtane > Meteorite > Platinum > Gold > Tungsten > Silver > Lead > Iron > Tin > Copper
