Terraria (Wiki): Orichalcum Halberd


Everything you need to know

General Information

The Orichalcum Halberd is an Ore Spear that pierces enemies and an alternative ore counterpart for the Mythril Halberd.

The Orichalcum Halberd looks more like a pike than a halberd, and the Palladium Pike looks more like a halberd than a pike in terms of appearance.  

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

When normally used, the Orichalcum Halberd will not emit light, and attacks do not go through walls. It has a slightly increased knockback and has slightly increased base damage than the  Mythril Halberd. 

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

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