Blood Orbs are a crafting material dropped by several Blood Moon enemies. Additionally, the unique Blood Moon fishing enemies have a guaranteed independent drop of Blood Orbs in varying quantities.

Blood Orbs can be used to create any vanilla or Calamity buff potions. They are also used to craft Bloodstone Cores, the Blood Orange, the Bloody Tear, the Crackshot Colt, and the Money Trough.

  • All Potions crafted with Blood Orbs can only be crafted at an Alchemy Table.
  • Gorecodiles also provide 5-15 Blood Orbs when opened.


  • By stacking the effects of Death Mode's mob spawn rate multiplier during a Blood Moon with the Water Candle, Battle Potion, Zerg Potion, and/or Chaos Candle, Blood Orbs can be farmed incredibly quickly; one Blood Moon can yield 500-700 Blood Orbs with the right setup, potentially negating the need to farm the basic herbs required for potion brewing.
    • The Bloody Tear and Cosmolight can be used to further expedite this process by allowing Blood Moons to constantly be summoned to farm Blood Orbs.
  • Blood Orbs allow Lifeforce Potions to be crafted in Pre-Hardmode, despite the fact that they normally require Hardmode materials.

  • Enemies now have a 16.66% chance to drop it during Blood Moons instead of 20%.
  • Can now drop at all times during Blood Moons instead of only after defeating Moon Lord.
