Just smash 3 and call it a day. More altars mean more corruption problems. It's not worth the hassle.

I broke like, 9 altars in my world and kinda regretted it. The ores were nice but cleaning up the corruption and hallow spread was a nightmare. Stick to 3 or 6 if you鈥檙e feeling lucky, but prepare for some cleanup duty!

Breaking altars in Terraria is a great way to spawn hardmode ores, but it's a bit of a balancing act. Start with three altars to get the initial ores like Palladium, Orichalcum, and Titanium in your world. Remember, every time you smash an altar, there's a 66% chance a random stone block in your world is converted to Ebonstone/Crimstone or Pearlstone, which can spread corruption or hallow. So, break just enough to get your ores, but don鈥檛 go too wild unless you want to manage a lot of corruption!
