Terraria: How to Farm Unlimited Chlorophyte (Full Guide 2023)


Ran out of Chlorophyte in Terraria? Finding more of them is difficult since they’re rare and tricky. In this guide, we’ll teach you how to farm them, what items you can craft, and more!

The Chlorophyte in Terraria

In normal Terraria gameplay, the Chlorophyte Ore is invaluable for many reasons. For instance, you can make the newest armor set with an excellent headpiece for hybrid builds. You can also craft valuable bullets that make any boss fight easy!

Unfortunately, the game devs have to nerf the item. This results in lesser spawn chance and slight risk and difficulty when mining the ore. However, we offer a solution that could rake you in hundreds, if not thousands, in quantity! So, read this guide to learn how to farm unlimited Chlorophyte in Terraria.

Chlorophyte Explained

The Chlorophyte is a Hardmode ore in the Underground Jungle biome. Upon defeating the Wall of Flesh and entering Hardmode, it’ll spawn and spread through Mud blocks. It’s similar in terms of behavior as Crimson, Corruption, and Hallow biomes convert blocks, albeit with variable speed.

Even though you can find Chlorophyte Ores in the world, you can’t mine it until you have at least 200 Pickaxe Power. The Drax or Pickaxe Axe can do just that, but defeating all three mechanical bosses is a must to get both tools’ crafting pieces. Once you have the necessary materials, you can now start mining.

When traversing the Underground Jungle, we recommend equipping a pair of Wings and a reliable Mount. The Ancient Horn (that spawns a damaging Basilisk Mount on maximum movement) is a perfect example. Hooks are more than welcome to refresh your Wings’ flight duration.

Since spotting Chlorophyte can get tricky, add Spelunker Potions to your Inventory. You can make one by bringing Bottled Water, Blinkroot, Gold Ore, and Moonglow at an Alchemy Table. The Placed Bottle crafting station will also do, but resource return is not guaranteed.

Mining and Farming Unlimited Chlorophyte

When mining, don’t take every piece. Since Chlorophyte can spread through Mud Blocks, it’s best to leave a small amount so you can gather more later. You can repeat the same process near your base. Here are the steps:

1. Construct your Chlorophyte Farm in the Cavern layer. The distance will depend on your world size. Equipping the Depth Meter accessory or listening to the background music will determine if you’re in the said location.

2. As you’re using Mud Blocks, beware of the spread of Crimson, Corruption, or Hallow biome. It’ll ruin your farm, yielding you negative results. We recommend protecting it with bricks or any other non-corruptible blocks. Otherwise, purge the evil biome with our comprehensive guide here.

3. Your farm in Terraria must be 7×7 in height and width. Those blocks shall then be 40 blocks apart to facilitate a faster growth rate, albeit the percentage isn’t consistent.

What Can You Do With Chlorophyte in Terraria?

There are good and a few excellent items you can make in-game. But first, you need an Adamantite or Titanium Forge to smelt Chlorophyte Ores into Bars. To make one, combine 1 Hellforge with 30 Adamantite Ores or Titanium Ores.

Here are some of the best picks we have when synthesizing Chlorophyte Bars:

1. Drill Containment Unit

Materials to Bring40 Chlorophyte Bars, Hellstone Bars, Meteorite Bars, Luminite Bars, Shroomite Bars & Spectre Bars
Crafting StationMythril Anvil / Orichalcum Anvil

This unique mount lets you dig extremely quickly without needing any Pickaxe or Drill. It offers the strongest mining power and speed in Terraria. However, using any buff potions won’t stack, which is good for saving resources.

If you haven’t made Hellevators to contain the Crimson or Corruption biome, you should make the Drill Containment Unit.

2. Chlorophyte Bullets

Materials to Bring1 Chlorophyte Bar & 70 Musket Balls
Crafting StationMythril Anvil / Orichalcum

Is it hard to aim in boss fights? Crafting Chlorophyte Bullets in Terraria makes everything easier in Terraria, especially if you’re a ranged user. With more focus, you can exploit Hoiks and Teleporters easily with little attention to pay.

While the bullet may sound like a game-changer, Terraria has to balance things out. One of them is lesser damage, making fights a tad bit longer than if you’re using other types.

3. True Excalibur

Materials to Bring (Terra Blade upgrade)1 Broken Hero Sword, True Night’s Edge, True Excalibur
Crafting StationMythril Anvil / Orichalcum Anvil

Making the True Excalibur in Terraria is mandatory if you adapt close-range gameplay. Not only can it hit six bodies in one strike, but it’s also essential for crafting a stronger sword, the Terra Blade.

The True Excalibur is one of the best weapons to wield during the Solar Eclipse event. Not to mention, you’ll get the Broken Hero Sword crafting material to complete your upgrade!

4. Turtle armor set

Materials to Bring3 Turtle Shells & 54 Chlorophyte Bars
Crafting StationMythril Anvil / Orichalcum Anvil

Imagine the Pre-Hardmode Cactus armor set but buffed. That’s what the promising Turtle armor counterpart offers when you save enough ingredients to craft the set.

Wearing every piece gives you +750 aggro, +15% damage reduction (on desktop, mobile, and console versions), +14% melee attack, and +12% melee crit chance. Moreover, the Thorns effect deals double damage to enemies, which makes you last longer in Multiplayer boss fights in Master Mode.

Note: Chlorophyte Bars also let you craft the Chlorophyte armor set. Overall, the Hallowed armor is better because of its passive set bonus, allowing you to dodge enemy attacks.
