The Defiled Crate is a Hardmode crate that can only be fished in The Corruption. Defiled Crates contain items found in standard crates, and additionally always drop an item normally obtained by destroying a Shadow Orb. Its pre-Hardmode counterpart is the Corrupt Crate.
- Only one type of ore and one type of bar can drop, not both a pre-Hardmode type of ore and a Hardmode type of ore, or both a pre-Hardmode type of bar and a Hardmode type of bar. The table above implies otherwise with the respective groups being in separate rows, but that is for readability purposes. The chance that a type of ore is dropped is 1/7 (14.29%), and the chance that a type of bar is dropped is 1/4 (25%).
- Desktop 1.4.4:
- Reduced quantity of dropped ores from 30–49 to 20–35.
- Reduced quantity of dropped pre-Hardmode bars from 10–20 to 6–16.
- Reduced quantity of dropped Hardmode bars from 8–20 to 5–16.
- Now used to craft the Corrupt Crate via shimmer.
