Solar Eruption is a Hardmode auto melee weapon in Terraria with long range and high damage. When you have the Solar Eruption equipped, standing close to an enemy or slowly moving will automatically use the weapon and hit enemies up to five successive hits, inflicting Daybroken Debuff while dealing significant damage. That said, in this guide, we will talk about how to get Solar Eruption in Terraria.
How To Get Solar Eruption in Terraria
You can get Solar Eruption in Terraria via crafting. You need eighteen Solar Fragments, one of the Hardmode, post Lunatic Cultist boss crafting material, and the Ancient Manipulator crafting station to make the Solar Eruption end-game melee weapon.
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.
