grinding for corruption key or key mold just got a bit easier
ok, so basically, i went to a new, small world, killed the WoF, and was using it to just get gold outa the world by killing multiple bosses, raid the floating islands, ect, ect, ect. then i went to the corruption (which had spawned with this world unlike my original home world) and started fighting the EoW over and over again, and i realised that each section counts as a mob, so you can gring the EoW over and over and over again for a key mold or key, twenty minutes later and a corruption key mold later. and i found gold. hope it helps, also any way to quick grind other keys would help, maybe with destroyer? would be a bit harder since i dont know any ways to make killing him easier.

Destroyer's segments can't be killed separately, so it only counts for one "drop"

What about the brain? The little creepers it sends out drop loot (hearts, tissue samples and mana). Does it have an increased drop chance?

I think the easiest way is to spawn an army like goblins . They should fight in every biome .

I guess if you can use the goblin army, then would the pumpkin event work? Spawn that in a particular overland biome and possibly get that key drop there also.

The pumpkin event does indeed cause that biome's key to drop. I have quite a large number of crimson keys because of that.

thats a good idea, but somewhat suicidal, the goblin army or pirate armies work though because they can be afk farmed sort of.

but if your willing to, pumkin moon all the way, but the problem is being able to defeat it without any hardmode dungeon chest items

Wait I thought the various "armies" alwas head to the center of the map, not where you summon them...?

@Batabii

They occupy roughly the center 1/5th of the map, so there's quite a lot of leeway in what biome it could be, but you're right, you couldn't summon it in your jungle or a far away corruption/crimson. Pumpkin Moon works everywhere, though.

Actually where they go to is wherever the spawn point on the map is.

well then it can't help me, because my town (purity) is at the spawn point.

@Final Kaoss

Which is very close to the horizontal center of the world.

i wouldnt do it with pumkin moon since alot of the enemies that deal heavy damage can hit through blocks

No, but pirates are a joke with a good trap. Hell, they're even easier than goblin armies, since they can't hit you through walls!
