Holy water is an effective method of removing the Corruption, arguably more so than Purification Powder because the latter reverts corruption to neutral stone/grass/sand, which will shortly become corrupt again, especially when playing in Hard Mode. Holy water on the other hand Hallows whatever it touches, meaning these areas will stay cleansed for a much longer period of time. However, if the aim of cleansing the Corruption was to make it more liveable, remember that the mobs found in the Hallow are equally as deadly as those of the Corruption.
Holy water can be taken to worlds in which the Wall of Flesh has not yet been killed; they can be a very effective way of removing Corruption on such worlds. However on these worlds, given the slow nature and limitations of the Corruption's spread (it being stopped by Sunflowers or small amounts of artificial blocks) it may be easier to use Purification Powder instead.
Another possible limitation of Holy Water is the materials required: gathering Pixie Dust takes time, and Hallowed Seeds can be expensive when bought in bulk.
As mentioned at the top of the article, Holy Water can be used as a weapon, although it deals little damage. The only time this could be useful is when battling enemies in the area you're trying to Hallow.
Unholy Water has an equal and opposite effect to Holy Water, spreading Corruption instead of Hallow.
With servers there is a bug when using Tshock (a Terraria server mod client), in which only the owner(s) of the server can use holy water, purification powder, etc.
- When thrown from high heights (around 500 ft above ground) the bottle reaches its maximum travel capacity and suddenly explodes, doing no purifying.
- There is a bug that the damage it has just says '20' instead of 'deals 20 damage'.
- Added to the game.
