Terraria (Wiki): Adamantite Glaive


Everything you need to know

General Information

The Adamantite Glaive is an Ore Spear that pierces enemies and an alternative ore counterpart for the Titanium Trident.

An Adamantite Glaive cannot autoswing. Its attack reaches 11 tiles in radius. At an optimal distance, the Adamantite Glaive can pierce five enemies. However, multiple bodies will be damaged should they all line up for the player.

When normally used, the Adamantite Glaive will not emit light, and attacks do not go through walls.

Combat-wise, all Flask items will imbue their unique effects since the Adamantite Glaive is a melee weapon. 

Although the damage of this weapon is lower than its sword counterpart, the Adamantite Glaive compensates by being able to hit multiple enemies simultaneously. It has a long reach and allows the players to attack while moving in any direction, making it more effective overall.

The Adamantite Glaive is best modified with Godly or Demonic for overall stats improvement. Both modifiers equally increase the average damage output.
