The Gelpick is a Pre-Hardmode pickaxe capable of mining Cobalt OreCobalt Ore and Palladium OrePalladium Ore. Having a slightly higher pickaxe power than the Molten Pickaxe, it is the fastest pickaxe available before Hardmode.

Its best modifier is Legendary. While Light may seem to provide a better speed boost by percentages, rounding reveals that Legendary and Light mine at equal speeds for this tool.
