"A godly aura has blessed the world's caverns."
Auric Ore is a post-Moon Lord ore found in the cavern layer after Jungle Dragon, Yharon has been defeated. It is used to make incredibly powerful end-game weapons and equipment, as well as the Eye of Extinction, the summoning item for Supreme Calamitas. It requires at least a Blossom Pickaxe to mine. 515 Auric Ore is required to make every item it is used in.
Unlike most ores, Auric Ore spawns in enormous clusters. Each vein can easily have over a hundred blocks of ore.
- This ore does not have a Slime counterpart. Since Yharon only spawns Auric Ore on the first kill, there is a limited amount of Auric Ore in each world.
- Auric Ore can be destroyed by explosives after Yharon has been defeated.
- The weapons that use Auric Ore are commonly referred to as "Exo-weapons," based on the Exoblade.
