The World Feeder is a monster that spawns in the Corruption after the Wall of Flesh has been defeated. Although it looks somewhat similar to the Eater of Worlds, it is more like the Devourer in practical terms, as its spawning conditions are that of a normal (Hard Mode) enemy.
They have 500 HP and drop the valuable Cursed Flames, which can be used to make new ammunition, torches, and spells. Like all creatures that spawn in Hard Mode, they are very strong and can easily kill a player who is not prepared.
- As with all burrowing monsters, the easiest way to kill it is to aim along the length of its body with a penetrating weapon.
- Using Cursed Bullets, Cursed Flames, or Cursed Arrows can cause most of the body (depending on what you hit) to get the Cursed Inferno debuff. This can deal incredible damage: if you catch 20 segments in one world feeder, it will deal 80 dps just from the cursed inferno debuff, making 560 damage in about 7 seconds.
- A Grenade or Bomb can kill it instantly.
- During a Blood Moon, it is possible to see three World Feeders at the same time.
