    I have never seen any ore other than Hellstone in the underworld.

    Anyone else come across other ore down here?

    Its quite obvious that the three new ores can be spawned in the underworld, I think we all know that.

    Yeah, hardmode ores can spawn in the ceiling of hell. Haven't actually played with white lighting long enough to see if any adamantite spawns on the floor of hell, but I'm assuming it's possible. I mean, a vein of addy next to a vein of hellstone lit by lava might be distinguishable, but I haven't tested it.

    I destroyed every alter in my world, and no other ore spawned anywhere is hell.

    Maybe it's just an uncommon occurrence.

    Anyway, I just thought it was cool to find it.

    @Pentagon, Try using a spelunker potion and flying through hell, keeping an eye on the ceiling. You'll be surprised at how much EASIER this is than just mining for the hardmode ores.

    Oi. No. My name is Pentarctagon.
    >.>

    Anyway...
    I actually used a map viewer to see if there really wasn't any new ore in hell, and there wasn't any. Interestingly though, there were several times where there was new ore only 3 blocks away from ash.

    I found about 2 stacks of adamntite flying under the ceiling of hell.

    I'm in the same boat as valkoor. And my apologies if I touched a nerve, I was just trying to be silly. But yeah, that's weird. I've seen a lot of ores in the underworld level actually buried in ash. I did do this on a medium world though, perhaps that influences it?

    Using hell to get the new ores is a great practice, start up a new world, slaugther WoF, then break 10-20 altars and scan hell's celling, you should find plenty of adamantite and mythril there, a little bit of cobalt too.

    That ore on the picture there, is mythril, which can spawn anywhere in the world (not sure if it can spawn above ground level)

    I've found Adamantite in Hell, needing to do a double check to make sure it wasn't Hellstone. They are quite similar in appearance.

    I know that. Notice how I'm wearing Mythril armor, lol (it's actually in the Vanity slot)?

    Thanks for the info guys, I've already gotten enough Adamant ore since I read your replies to make a Drill/Chainsaw :D

    I find a lot of ores spawn into the roof of hell. Thats one of the best places to look because its so open and you won't have to dig to get it.

    What I did find surprising was adamantite next to one of the lava lakes in hell. Only found them in the roof before.

    when you smash a demon alter it spawns 1 of 3 hardmode oars, it replases stone. i tested that on my test world.
    so since you can only FIND sut and hellstone on the floor non will spawn. how ever some times you find stone on the roof in hell it is possible to find. If you PLACE stone any where in the world (i don't know about hight) there is a CHANCE it will replace it with 1 of 3 hardmode oars when you smasha demon alter.

    Most of the veins of the two rarest ores (Mythril and Adamantite) will spawn either in that ash roof, or close to it, from what I've seen through five hardmode worlds.

    And there's a slight, small chance that Adamantite will form down in the "ground" part of hell. I run by one three times and didn't notice it because Hellstone and Adamantite look pretty much the same for me.

    Hell for me is the best way to farm ore. Last night I got about 550 adamantite ore along woth 300 mythril and so many cobalt I had to stop mining it. When you see a hole in the roof of hell fly up and check for ore, if nothing go down and continue on.

    Of course I figured this when I had full hallow armor "sigh"
