Is this a bug? I am unable to unlock the next tier of ore because I can't break a Crimson Altar.

(before you ask, YES, I have defeated the Wall of Flesh and I am on hard mode.)

    If it doesn't break the Altar then what DOES happen when you hit it? Oct 15, 2013 at 20:14
  • It does ~190 damage to me and nothing happens

  • Did you try reloading the world? Did you find hardmode enemies to absolutely make sure you're in hardmode?

    Then are you in the same world that you beat the WoF in? If it is the same world then it's probably a bug, in which case restart Terraria and see if that helps anything. Also, are you using the Pwnhammer and not the one you may have had before beating WoF? Maybe you were holding shift but the weaker hammer was first in your inventory. Oct 15, 2013 at 20:33
  • No, I'm using the pwnhammer that dropped from the wall of flesh. Yes, I am in the same world i killed the wall of flesh in. I have reloaded the world countless times and the same thing keeps happening.

From your description it sounds like a bug.

My thought process to test it out would be as follows (until resolution was found).

  • Kill the Wall of Flesh again.
  • Create a new world and kill the Wall of Flesh.
  • Create a new character and world and try again.
  • Create a new character and world on a new mode type and then kill the Wall of Flesh.

Have you edited your game files in any way or attempted to cheat? Please don't take offense if you have not, but this is all I can think of.

Best of luck.
