Guide to Hardmode Souls in Terraria

Terraria is a great game that has a lot of content built into it. A lot of people think that once you beat the Wall of Flesh, there is nothing else after it, but that is not the case. Once you finally get into Hardmode, the game has just begun. One huge thing that is opened up for you once you get into Hardmode is the collection of Souls. Depending on what creature it is and where it is in the world, they each drop a different type of Soul. Not only that, there are some Souls that you can only get from defeating a Boss. Here are all 6 Souls you can get and what you can make with them:

Soul of Flight

The only way to get these Souls is to go onto a floating island and wait for a creature called a Wyvern to spawn. Once you finally defeat it, it will drop 10-15 Souls of Flight upon death and are easily collected. The creatures are hard to beat, but it is definitely worth it because it allows you to make wings so you can fly. Here are all the different items you can make with Souls of Flight:

Soul of Might

There is only one way to get these Souls and that is to destroy the Destroyer. He is one of the three Mechanical bosses in Hardmode and it is not an easy task. The Destroyer is the easier of the three so make sure you have the right gear to fight him. You can make some pretty good armor if you get all the Hallow bars from him once he is defeated.

Soul of Sight

There is only one way to get these Souls and that is if you defeat the Twins. They are the second Mechanical boss that you have to fight and they are much harder than the Destroyer because of their deadly weapons and fast movements. Once defeated though, you can drown in the splendor that you have received from them because you get a lot of stuff for defeating the boss. Here are all the things you can make with Souls of Sight:

Soul of Fright

There is only one way to get these Souls and that is to defeat the third and final Mechanical boss, Skeletron Prime. He is the hardest of the three and it is basically a four-armed version of Skeletron with weaponry. He is fast, hits hard, and he shows no mercy, so be ready to fight him. You probably already have Hallowed armor from the other Mechanical bosses so it should not be as hard as you think, but it is satisfying to defeat him.

Conclusion

In conclusion, Terraria honestly has soo much content in it. For those who like a simpler game, I give you props, but nothing comes close to Terraria in my book. There is a 7th Soul called the Soul of Blight, but that is only in the 3DS version of the game and not worth putting into this article, so I am sorry for those 3DS players out there. If you have not played Terraria before and you would like to, it is very cheap (under $10) basically anywhere and you should get it because Journey’s End is coming out soon also. Definitely worth your time and money.
