The head of the boss does the most damage but it’s also the weakest. So you might want to target the head with a piercing weapon. The Vilethorn is a foolproof weapon in all the modes. You can also use Waterbolt, Grenades, Whips, or any other fast-moving melee weapon.

The Eater of Worlds is often farmed for valuable drops like Demonite Ore, Shadow Scale, Eater’s Bone, and much more.
