We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Thrown Powders are throwable and consumable items that can be used to rid certain existing biomes to make place of a new or pre-existing one. When thrown, they release as a cloud spread with a very short range comparable to that of a Broadsword, and produce a fair amount of light. Thrown Powder comes in three variants:

Purification Powder is able to revert any Corrupted or Crimson blocks back into their pure form, such as reverting Ebonstone into Stone or Crimsand into Sand. In Hardmode, one can use Purification Powder on a Tortured Soul in order to obtain the Tax Collector NPC. It is purchased from the Dryad for 75 Copper Coin each, while a blood moon is not occuring.

Vile Powder is able to revert any Hallowed block back into their pure form, such as reverting Pearlstone into Stone. If thrown at critters such as the Bunny, Penguin, or Goldfish, they will turn into their Corrupted variants: Corrupt Bunny, Corrupt Penguin, and Corrupt Goldfish respectively. It can be crafted from Vile Mushrooms, or can be purchased from the Dryad for 1 Silver Coin each, during a Blood Moon in a Corrupt world.

Vicious Powder Desktop only.png is functionally identical to its counterpart, the Vile Powder, to where it can revert any Hallowed block back into their pure form. If thrown at critters like the Bunny, Penguin, or Goldfish, they will turn into their Crimson variants: Crimtane Bunny, Vicious Penguin, and Crimtane Goldfish respectively. It can be crafted from Vicious Mushrooms, or can be purchased from the Dryad for 1 Silver Coin each, during a Blood Moon in a Crimson world.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Purification Powder is able to shatter Shadow Orbs and Crimson Hearts.
  • Purification Powder will not clear through Corrupt or Crimson thorns, leaving the player to manually break them before they spread their respective biome.
  • Purification Powder is one of the only methods of tunneling through Ebonstone or Crimstone to reach Shadow Orbs/Crimson Hearts in pre-Hardmode without the need to defeat the Eater of Worlds or the Brain of Cthulhu, the other methods being to use explosives which can destroy blocks, or the use of a rare Reaver Shark.
