Crimtane Bars are pre-Hardmode bars crafted using Crimtane Ore at a Furnace. They are used to make Crimson tier items. Crimtane Bars are the Crimson equivalent of The Corruption's Demonite Bars.
Crafting all Crimson equipment requires (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) 140 / (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) 128 Crimtane Bars and 61 Tissue Samples.
- (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) Selling the bar rather than the ore yields an extra 4 SC per bar.
- The bars also sell for significantly more than anything that can be made from them. Once a complete set of Crimson equipment has been made, it is more profitable to sell raw bars and Tissue Samples.
- On the Desktop version, Console version, and Mobile version, the value of Crimtane Bars was decreased and the value of Crimtane Ores was increased, such that three ores sell for exactly as much as one bar. Therefore, it is more efficient to sell the raw ores.
- Desktop 1.2.3: Fixed bug where Crimtane’s name wouldn't be displayed on mousing over the placed bars on the map.
