Notes[edit | edit source]

  • 3DS version While Lepus can drop Souls of Might, they are useless in Pre-Hardmode as they cannot be used to make anything without a Hardmode Anvil or other Hardmode-exclusive materials.
  • Unlike souls obtained from the other mechanical bosses, the Souls of Might are relatively easy to collect because, rather than dropping far away or high in the air, they drop from the body segment of The Destroyer that is closest to the player, often so close to the player that they may be instantly picked up.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • All types of souls are very useful for selling as profit once the necessary items have been crafted.
  • Before 1.4, crafting Souls of Might into Light Discs would significantly increase profits; this requires Hallowed Bars (dropped by the same boss), and Souls of Light, which need to be gathered in the Underground Hallow. In 1.4, the sale price of Light Discs was reduced to only slightly more than the materials to make them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Soul of Might is the only type of soul directly stating the boss it is dropped from in its tooltip.
    • 3DS version However, despite the tooltip claiming the soul to be 'The essence of the destroyer', it is also rarely dropped by Lepus.
