[up]Wait, you're beating these guys with the mobile controls?! Bless your determined soul, I found the touchscreen sluggish and sometimes even obstructive when trying to play - sucks with lessened screen area too.

Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.

Chlorophyte Bullets are god. Hell, Chlorophyte anything is god. Give me enough Chlorophyte and I could probably beat WoF without an arena.

Speaking of which, I need to kill Plantera a few more times so I can get a Crimson Key for the Vampire Knives.

Is there any efficient way to farm Crimson enemies? I need to kill so many of them to get the Crimson Key Mold and therefore the Vampire Knives, but it seems like it would take forever if I grind normally.

Water Candle + Battle Potion + fighting there at night. The surface is usually the better place to set this up if you're just looking for sheer quantity. You can also set up an auto-farm using a safe room and a lava pit under/beside you. Let the game idle while the enemies cook themselves to death (this also works with summons if you have a summoner set, though you'll have to go manually retrieve the items at intervals).

I think I'll go with the autofarm, as I grinded for 15 minutes with three battle potions and nothing of note dropped. Apparently there's a 1/2500 chance to get those things... this really is going to be a terrible night.

Donít worry, I have the stuff to handle them. I actually found the Destroyer to be the hardest of the bunch, but maybe thatís just because I fought him the most without Chlorophyte gear. With the Shotbow and Jester Arrows, all three of them are a joke.

Well, they are bosses from the start of Hard Mode, so their stats aren't all that high in the grand scheme of things. There's a Steam achievement for summoning all three bosses at the same time and killing them. Tried it with my character in Beetle and Terra Blade for shits and giggles. Shredded them with little difficulty.

Nice. I donít have the Terra Blade yet (why are Solar Eclipses so rare?), but that achievement seems like fun.

I remember when Skeletron Prime was the game's final boss. Heck, I remember when regular Skeletron was.

Wow. I only started the game about a month ago.

When S. Prime was the final boss, did the Twins and the Destroyer exist?

Yeah, they were introduced the same time along with the hard mode.

Plantera, the Golem and Duke Fishron came afterwards in later patches, along with the other holiday-themed events and bosses. The Moon Lord was the final addition, obviously, though I'm not sure if the mobile version has added him yet.

Mobile goes up to Golem + Duke Fishron. It has Solar Eclipses, but they're excessively rare and I've been waiting for one so I can get three Broken Hero Swords.

They're also not terribly common in the PC version. I usually ended up getting them because I'd be around for a lot of in-game days due to 90% of my time playing being multiplayer, so my friends and I would play for long blocks.

Ah. If I still had the Crimson in my main world, Iíd be likely to get one while grinding for key molds, but I have to use another world that I havenít purified already.

Once I get the key mold, though, all I have to do is grind Souls so I can summon Ocram. He seems fairly easy - certainly easier than Duke Fishron.

You can engineer a Crimson in your old world if you bring Crimson blocks in from a new world. Just dig out a wide section and fill the gaps between the Crimson farm and the rest of the world around it with manufactured blocks.

I found it, killed Plantera, and now Iím ready to go find that Crimson chest. I ended up getting two of the crafting materials for the Suspicious Looking Skull during the grind, so I only need a Mechanical Eye and five Souls of Light to summon Ocram.

Any good strategies for Ocram? Iím ready to summon him, but I donít want to waste my S.L.S. on an attempt that was doomed from the start.

Afraid I don't have much, since that boss doesn't show up on PC. It's always good to the do the basic arena prep, including honey, heart lamp and campfire, though.

I guess one other thing I could advise is there's a cheese strat that works on very nearly every boss that's common between version: Gravity Pots. Equip a ranged weapon, pop the pot and just keep reversing gravity every 2-3 seconds. It gets a bit gross to look at, but most boss' AI can't properly target you when you're doing that and will miss the majority of attacks.

And... Ocram is dead. He was honestly really disappointing. The Vampire Knives wreck him in just a couple minutes.

Now I just have to find some Truffle Worms in another world, as I purified the existing shrooms in the main one. Or I could get some seeds and spawn one on the surface.

Well, to be fair, life drain in general just kind of trivializes most of the game (a death ball of Spectre players is borderline invincible). I think that's part of why the Moon Lord was given an anti-healing debuff.

For Truffle Worms, I believe you have to be looking for them in the cavern biome, so you'll need to build your farm underground if you plan to make one for them. In all honesty, it's best if you too a man-made one, anyway, since then you can lay out easy, flat areas to catch them in, so that you can just sprint by, auto-firing the bug net.

On mobile, they can spawn on the surface, so I made a platform out of mud and planted some mushroom seeds there. I can also get the Truffle NPC there, allowing me to spread the shrooms across the entire jungle in another world.

Well, I finally got a chance to fight Duke Fishron today. I ended up dying and now I have to find another Truffle Worm. My surface mushrooms are going well, and I even have a Truffle NPC now.

I killed Plantera three times for fun and ended up making my Megashark obsolete. The gun she drops is great, though I didn't get it until after the ill-fated Fishron encounter. I also killed the Destroyer and the Twins again for their souls, and now I'm grinding Demon/Wandering Eyes for their black lenses so I can make the Optic Staff.

Dunno if mobile changes the spawn rate, but I recall being able to collect 3-4 while pointedly moving off screen and back with my mushroom farm (usually triple tiered) for about 10 minutes. Might be worth stacking some up in case bad things happen again.
