Soul of Night is a Hardmode crafting material dropped by most enemies killed in the Underground Corruption or Underground Crimson at Caverns layer, with a 1/5 (20%) / 9/25 (36%) chance. This also includes enemies not native to the biome such as Granite Elementals.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • An easy way to farm these is to go to the Underground Corruption/Crimson and summon King Slime using the Slime Crown. All of the Blue Slimes he summons have a chance to drop Souls of Night (this method will also work for the Soul of Light).
  • On larger worlds, souls of night sometimes may not be dropped in the underground layer, and can only be harvested in the cavern layer.
  • Although the tooltip reads "'The essence of dark creatures'", Souls of Night can be dropped by enemies that are not native to the Underground Corruption or Crimson.
  • Enemies spawned by a statue will not drop souls, even if the statue is in the Underground Crimson/Corruption. Spawned Bunnies and Goldfish that are turned into their corrupt counterpart (due to Vile Powder or a Blood Moon) will not drop souls either.
  • On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, Meteor Heads will no longer drop souls, even when killed in the Underground Corruption/Crimson.
