    I mean the subject line says it all. I've come across this problem quite a lot recently as I just began a new world and character. Is this supposed to be this way? I cannot imagine why on Earth a copper pickax can mine Demonite ore yet a silver one cannot.

    Can someone verify that I'm not alone on this? I think it's a bug, but I want to be sure.

    Odd, Iron and Copper shouldn't be able to mine demonite ore. Only gold or higher can mine it usually.

    Confirmed. Hopefully this will be fixed next week.

    Where was the ore?

    Demonite ore spawned above ground can be mined by normal picks, while ore below ground (and in corruption IIRC) has the normal requirements.

    This is probably a glitch... it doesn't seem to make sense that it would.
