Hallowed be thy Name and Corruptible are the most annoying achievements ever

Last week I started a small world to get the Corruptible achievement for having most of your world be corruption. I beat the Wall of Flesh to go into hardmode so that the Crimson would spread faster, then I used Vile Powder to get rid of the Hallow. I have let the game run that world for the past three days, and the Crimson has only gone from the original 4% to 14%. It took THREE DAYS for a 10% increase. At this rate, it will be 4th of July before I get this achievement. In my book, any achievement that requires you to have your game running for several weeks straight is a horrible achievement.

I don't want to sound like an ass but I think you are doing it all wrong.

The reason the counter is moving so slowly is because there are a lot of blocks that can't be corrupted because they are surrounded by other blocks. The best way imo to corrupt a world is to make horizontal shafts of 3 blocks high through the surface area. Make these shafts of dirt and let some grass grow on it.

This method will also take a long time but it is probably the fastest way.

You should also look at this thread for some tips for both achievements.

I hope this helps.

Now that the game is updated I recommend using the Clentaminator with purple/blue solution. It is expensive to use but it is a hell of a lot faster then holy water or unholy water.

These items can be bought from the steampunker.

It still is fairly slow. I ended up spraying it all over the map with a friend and I'm now AFK'ing it and waiting.

Anyone know ways to speed it up? Glitches perhaps?

You think this kind of achievement is the worst? Have you ever gone on a fight-to-the-death arena that lasts for over 100 rounds with stronger enemies every round?


Burning electricity is nothing compared to the things that other people have done.
