A Few Tips for Farming
One of the best ways to get as much of this ingredient as possible is to go to the Underground Shrine to the very depths, where lava often appears. Place some Water Candles there. Enemies spawned by the Underground Shrine won’t pass through blocks (with the exception of Enchanted Swords) and will be affected by the lava. This effective method can be used to farm other items from creatures that live in this biome too.
If you are playing on consoles, there is another easy way to farm a large number of souls of light. You need to go to the Underground Shrine and summon the King Slime boss using the crown. During the battle, the boss will summon small blue slimes, from which the necessary component will drop. The same method works for the Soul of Night.
