That being said, now let us talk about where you can get the Hellstone and Obsidian for crafting the Hellbars needed for crafting Molten Pickaxe.

How to Get Hellstone 

You can get Hellstone Ore from the deepest layer in Terraria, aka The Underworld. The Hellstone deposits are reasonably easy to spot as they give away a faint glow. Once you find a deposit, use the Nightmare or the Deathbringer Pickaxe to mine Hellstone. 

How to Get Obsidian
