Leveling up Edit
Dark mobs (e.g., skeletons) are excellent for leveling up both for you and your pets.
If you get a quest where you are supposed to kill something, (e.g., kill 10 deers) then find one of that particular creature and get its spawn using a soulcatcher. (If it is something strong than you may have to wack it a little to have enough mana). Then take the spawned and place it a small distance from your house. (You don't want to get overrun by dark werewolves every time you leave your house) and ta-da! Infinite animals.
When you are done with the quest you can destroy the spawner and store it away for a dog or something (Optional).
Killing NPCs EasilyEdit
This one is how to kill NPSs easily such as Aaron, Paula, Ted, Alchemists, ect.
So, dig a 3x3 hole that is 2 blocks deep. Now hit the npc and jump in the hole. The npc will jump in to kill you. Now climb out. They are stuck.
Now you will need some cactus. Approx 4 blocks cactus. Put the cactus in each corner of the hole. The cactus will start to kill the box and they will try to get away. They will turn around and walk into the wall. And get stuck.
Now just wack them with your weapon until they die. They all give great stuff. Here's the key:
|Name of NPC||Drop(s)|
|Ted||Saw Shield, Gun, Gunpowder and Bullets|
|Mr. Goblin||Sheepskin, Pickaxe (Iron and/or Goblin, commonly Iron)|
|Goblin Warrior||Goblin Pickaxe|
|Angel Goblin||Epic Sword|
Don't be fooled by mystic ring! Pointless! If you put your aragog eye on as a necklace with nothing done to it, it gives you like 8 extra mana and never wears out!
