trick to finding demon altars? What do they look like?!?!

#1RPGMaster95Posted 5/30/2011 3:05:50 PM
I've mined all over the place, found what I think is the jungle not sure what to do there, lol... And the corruption which I can't do anything there....

what is the easiest way/area to find a demon altar so I can progress?

they give out light... it's possible that they will spawn anywhere, but they spawn most frequently near corruption. they look like grey evil looking altars with horns.

Not sure if this is true for all worlds. It was easy to find for me. Just drop down any of the pits in the corruption and there is probably a demon altar at the bottom (or you can at least see one). Granted you need a lucky horseshoe if you just expect to fall the whole way. Found like 5 altars this way.

found one... how the hell do I get to it?

It's surrounded by that hard stuff in corruption you can't mine or bomb.... =(

You need a pickaxe which you get from materials from killing bosses, or use the powder that you get from the druid that comes after you kill bosses, either way to get to that one you need the nightmare pick axe or higher.

YOu could just look for another one that is not near corruption. There's a few but yeah good luck finding it =(

You should read your Bible, sirs. You'll find all types of weird stuff in there. Like, did you know Jesus was a Jew? -Jay

Most of the altars will generated in brown dirt/rock layer of underground (rarely found in grey dirt/rock layer if corruption chasm reach that deeper area). If you dig around that area, you will certainly find one.
