Talk:Biome Key Molds
Non-Corruption Worlds[edit source]
It seems like they can drop in artificial Corruption biomes, as evidenced by one appearing in my Crimson world from an enemy in the artificial Corruption I created. 18.104.22.168 23:33, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
The drop chance can either be 1/4000 (0.00025), or 2/40 (0.025) as you stated second. Which one is the actual drop chance now? It would make the difference for the status of the most rare drop in the game (after slime staff if i recall correctly).
I've been farming it for about a week, but I just CANNOT get it! Any ideas? I've tried a battle potion, a water candle, and both together. Please help :(
Surface or underground[edit source]
Does this drop in the Underground Crimson as well?'
- I'm pretty sure it drops in both the Crimson and Underground Crimson. At least the other molds seem to do (the Hallowed Key Mold on the surface). NoseOfCthulhu (talk) 20:46, 17 June 2014 (UTC)
- Actually, I just got my crimson mold in surface Crimson, so it doesn't matter, but underground still has faster spawn rate. (talk) 3:27, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Other biomes?[edit source]
What drops in biomes such as forest, and others that are not listed as having their own key mold? Ocean biomes can drop anything. Does that apply to other unlisted biomes as well?
Post-Plantera or not[edit source]
Are key molds can be dropped after entering hardmode but before defeating plantera? Description on main page says, that it is droppable in hardmode, but is included in post plantera entities.
- They're post-plantera only. I've clarified the page. Equazcion (talk) 21:25, 16 Jan 2015 (UTC)
From statues?[edit source]
I have no idea if you can get molds from statues22.214.171.124 01:20, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
- Because the keys are no longer crafted, they're just dropped directly. Presumably it'll be like this in all versions before long. If you're looking for a rationale for not keeping them in the game code as inaccessible items, though, I can't really say. Gearzein (talk) 04:10, 5 April 2016 (UTC)
