Demonite Bars are the refined form of Demonite Ore. Demonite is the ninth tier in the twelve tiers of pre-hardmode Ores: one tier above Platinum, but one tier lower than Crimtane Bar. It is the counterpart of Crimtane on worlds where the Crimson is replaced by the Corruption.


  • Any item made with Demonite Bars will emit a small amount of shadow particles.
  • 110 Demonite Bars (or 330 Demonite Ore [as of]) are required to craft all of the Demonite tier items along with an additional 56 Shadow Scales.
  • Any Items created with Demonite Bars are worth as much or less than a single bar. To gain money faster it is wise to defeat the Eater of Worlds or the Eye of Cthulhu, refine the ores into bars and sell them whole.
  • When Demonite Bars are created the sell value is worth 8 silver more than the value of 3 Demonite Ore.
  • Demonite can be easily found around the Corruption in groups of 2-5.
  • Items made out of Demonite are faster than their Crimtane counterparts, but deal less damage per hit.

Update Info
