To get the Solar Fragments, defeat Solar Pillar during Lunar Events. Doing so will drop the said crafting material as a drop. And if that is not what you want to go with, you can also use the Vortex, Nebula, and Stardust Fragment at the Ancient Manipulator to craft the Solar Fragments. 

However, to get the Vortex, Nebula, and Stardust Fragment, you must defeat:

  • Vortex Pillar during Lunar Event
  • Nebula Pillar during Lunar Event
  • Stardust Pillar during Lunar Event

So, the alternative option will also require you to farm the different Pillar-type enemies during the Lunar Events.

As for the Lunar Events goes, you can trigger them by defeating the Lunar Cultist boss. Since, during the event, formidable enemies spawn at a very high rate, we recommend you be well-equipped, or else you may not survive long enough to obtain the required items to craft the Solar Eruption. 

That is it. That concludes our guide on how to get Solar Eruption in Terraria.
