Terraria sports four different Anvil crafting stations and each one is used to craft a various number of items. Here’s everything you need to know to make an Anvil in Terraria (and what you can make with each one).

    Different Types of Anvils

    The Anvils in Terraria.

    There are actually four different kinds of Anvils in the game, two of which are pre-Hardmode and the other two are Hardmode-exclusive.

    • Pre-Hardmode – Iron Anvil and Lead Anvil
    • Hardmode-Exclusive – Mythril Anvil and Orichalcum Anvil

    The Iron Anvil and the Lead Anvil are virtually identical. The items that you can craft on them are the same. The only distinction between them is one ingredient. The same can be said for the Mythril and Orichalcum Anvils.

    The Mythril Anvil and Orichalcum Anvil in Terraria.

    Now that you know the different kinds of Anvils in Terraria, it’s time for you to craft them yourself. Here are the four different Anvils in the game and how to make them:

    Iron or Lead Anvil

    You can craft an Iron or a Lead Anvil by bringing 5 Iron or Lead Bars on a Work Bench. 5 Iron Bars will result in an Iron Anvil while 5 Lead Bars make a Lead Anvil. You can create an Iron Bar or a Lead Bar with 3 Iron Ores or Lead Ores on a Furnace.

    Mythril or Orichalcum Anvil

    Mythril and Orichalcum Anvils can be crafted using the previously mentioned anvils. To craft a Mythril Anvil, collect 10 Mythril Bars and craft the anvil using an Iron Anvil or a Lead Anvil. For the Orichalcum Anvil, you’ll need 12 Orichalcum Bars.

    Mythril Bars and Orichalcum Bars are crafted by using Mythril and Orichalcum Ores in a Furnace.

    Craftable Items with Anvils

    Hardmode Anvil Armors.

    Here’s something for you to look forward to once you’ve crafted all four Anvils. These are all the incredible weapons, items, and armor that become available for you to craft once you create the Anvils:
