I have the crimson (NOT corruption), killed the WoF, but i only get Demon Altars. They have the graphics of Crimson Altars, but when i mouse over them it says: Demon Altar. I've destroyed a bunch of these crimson looking Demon Altars and all i get is Palladium / Adamantite / Orichalum. Why wont the titanium spawn?

ok, so i need to keep breaking altars and hope it will eventually pop some titanium. thx –  DangerMonkey Dec 13 '13 at 16:14
I believe that any single world will only get one of the ores from each tier. Breaking more altars will continue to give you Adamantite instead of Titanium. –  ken.ganong Dec 13 '13 at 16:16

The tool-tip for Crimson Altars is Demon Altar. This is a bug in the game. Both Demon Altars and Crimson Altars can spawn the alternative ores. The one you get is random and not linked to the crimson/corruption of the world. Your world gets one ore from each tier by random.

Hardmode Tier 1 | Cobalt      OR  Palladium
Hardmode Tier 2 | Mythril     OR  Orichalcum
Hardmode Tier 3 | Adamantite  OR  Titanium

Note you have to create a new world and see if destroying altars there will spawn different ores. –  Katustrawfic Dec 13 '13 at 16:28
If you quit without saving after breaking the 1st, 2nd or 3rd altar, you can re-roll whether the old or new ore type spawns. –  kotekzot Dec 13 '13 at 17:29
@kotekzot: Interesting, if true. –  Williham Totland Dec 14 '13 at 0:33
