Soul of Light is a Hardmode crafting material dropped by all enemies in the Underground Hallow with a 20% chance. This includes stray enemies not native to the biome, such as Goblins or even monsters of "evil" biomes like The Underworld. Crafting all items, including a full stack of five Light Discs, but excluding the Boss-summoning items, requires 115 Souls of Light. One of each Boss-summoning item requires an additional 12/41 Souls of Light (PC/Console), for a total of 127/156.
