Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Due to the difficulty of the Dungeon in hardmode, Hallowed Armor or higher is recommended when farming Ectoplasm. It may take multiple trips to acquire enough for all items.
  • Ectoplasm is a very good source of cash, as each piece of ectoplasm is worth 50 Silver Coin.
  • If you have enough spare Souls of Flight, it may be desirable to craft Ghost Wings instead of simply selling the ectoplasm, as each set of wings is worth Gold Coin, while the components are worth Gold Coin 40 Silver Coin. If you're lucky, the wings might even get a modifier, making them sell for more. (Console/Mobile only, as Spectre Wings' components will sell for 10 Gold Coin 40 Silver Coin)

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ectoplasm is a fictitious ethereal substance appearing in games, movies, and books that ghosts, phantoms, and other entities leave in the mortal realm, usually when destroyed.
