How to Make Asphalt in Terraria
For starters, it is important to note that asphalt is not immediately available. Before you have the opportunity to craft it, you must defeat the Wall of Flesh. There are also other requirements that must be met in order for asphalt to be an option for you.
To get access to asphalt, you must defeat any one of the three Mechanical Bosses. These include The Twins, Skeletron Prime, or The Destroyer. Once you do this, a new NPC vendor will appear to you. Known as the Steampunker, she will live at your base so long as a house is available. One of the things she offers is a device known as the Blend-O-Matic.
Getting the Blend-O-Matic
Obtaining the Blend-O-Matic is as simple as purchasing one from the Steampunker. Unfortunately, the asking price is a not-insignificant 10 Gold. Of course, the price might seem pretty reasonable if you feel strongly about Asphalt.
Using the Blend-O-Matic
There isn’t much to using the Blend-O-Matic. In fact, making asphalt is the only thing the device is good for. The good news is that the process of crafting asphalt in Terraria is fairly simple. When it comes to materials, you only need two Stone Block and one Gel. With these materials, the Blend-O-Matic will spit out one Asphalt Block. By the time you have this device, you should have plenty of these materials.
