    You can get corrupt seeds from the Eye of Cthulu I believe.

    1. why should i start it - There really isn't any reason to grow your own corruption unless you want to build an artificial one or use it for building (cemetery, corrupt town/castle) I use corrupt blocks to build a boss arena so I can fight Eater of Worlds and summon many more bosses for a bigger challange. i need to start it - No you don't have to. It is optional. there any speical iteams u get from the corruption - Just the usual stuff that you can get from Shadow Orbs and whatever mob drops that are in the area.

    4.what happen if its spreed compltle the world - You should be pretty safe from this until you activate hard mode. to stop it - Sunflowers, stone, clay, sand. Pretty much anything. Before hard mode only corrupt grass will spread (going by memory here so I may be wrong) As long as you keep dirt/grass a few tiles away it won't spread out of control.

    I hope that helps! If I posted anything incorrect please feel free to correct me. Also enjoy this awesome game! It sucked 700 hours of my life away! :D

    first 10x for the help and is the shadow orb spawn only in the corrupiton and can i get something realy good from the monsters drops?

    and i forgot to ask something:

    if i will make a huge flooting island with trees,dirt.stone,and all the stuff checnged.
    it will stay there and wont enfact the wrold but still spawn the shadow orb and mobs?

    and what ddo u mean by if u not in hard mode?

    It won't spawn shadow orbs but should spawn the mobs. In hardmode sunflowers won't stop the corruption spread and it will spread through stone, grass and sand at a fairly high rate. It will also spread in the Jungle by converting mud blocks to dirt but slowly.

    Hmm I have some similar questions...

    1. Will corruption affect floating islands?

    2. Is there anything better than Purification powder? It really is rubbish and impossible to use die to the fact it does not penetrate blocks.

    The corruption is more of an annoyance to me at this point, so I just want to kill the stuff

    @bomboy2121 - The stuff in Shadow Orbs can be pretty useful but not required. There are however some events that won't take place until at least one is broken. These are Meteorite crashes and Goblin invasions. You need to defeat at least one Goblin Army so the Goblin Tinkerer is spawned underground. Meteorite imo is just an annoyance as the armor offers less defense than Shadow Armor but is good for a magic using character early game and gives access to the Star Cannon and Space Gun (set bonus reduces mana cost of Space Gun to zero).

    @Soulstealers - When hardmode is activated the stripes of Hallow and Corruption doesn't stop at the surface. If there is a floating island in the way it will convert it also. It can also be converted by Corruptors spit if it hits an island. Depending on world size they can be an easy target. In small world its not uncommon to have floating islands visible from the surface.

    Purification powder is the best and only thing there is that will eliminate the corruption. Holy Water can be used to but it converts it to Hallow instead of back to normal blocks.

    so in other words, everything is fairly rubbish when it comes to purifying corruption. yay.

    That's my only gripe with this game there's is no way to really STOP corruption without spending are ridiculous ammount of time removing it block by block

    Well you could always cheat and remove it all with TEdit if it bugs you that much.

    TEdit? Never used it before, didn't realize you could do that lol.

    But yeah, I prefer to use in game ways of doing so, but when push comes to shove, I'd rather use a cheat program to remove that bloody stuff. Does it work on a MP server? Or do you have to load it in SP before hand to remove the corruption

    You do realize that you don't manually 'start' the corruption, it already generated when you created your world.

    i didnt know its starting with the world

    but plz no1 know what happen if its takeing over the world in hard mode?

    Nothing really. In hardmode, eventually the entire map will be hallow/corrupt anyway. Same if you completely remove the hallow/corruption with a tool like TEdit, nothing special happens.

    The only problem is that some items can be more difficult to obtain, like shark fins. You can always create artificial biomes and tree farms. Sand can be purified for glass and blocks can be purified for bricks.

    This is what happens when you play hardmode on the same world for a long period of time:
