Purification Powder is a thrown consumable item that can be used to clear blocks of Corruption. It releases as a cloud spread with a very short range comparable to that of a Broadsword, and produces a fair amount of light when thrown. It is the counterpart to Vile Powder. Purification Powder is purchased from the Dryad for 75 .
- Purification Powder does not clear the Corruption's thorns, which can continue to spread Corruption. Thorns must be cleared via a Weapon or Tool, or by walking through it (though it causes players damage on contact).
- Along with Dynamite and Bombs, Purification Powder is (prior to Hardmode) one of the only methods of tunneling through Ebonstone to reach Shadow Orbs without having to first defeat the Eater Of Worlds (which drops the Shadow Scale required to craft the Nightmare Pickaxe).
