Terraria Ecto Mist: How to craft walls

Ecto Mist is a rare ingredient you can use to create blocks and walls in Terraria, but how do you get it?

To gather Ecto Mist, you'll need to create the Graveyard Biome, which you can do by laying out some Tombstones. Ecto Mist floats just above the ground and the more Tombstones are added the thicker it gets.

Eventually, you'll spawn Ghosts, Zombies, Demon Eyes and Maggot Zombies will spawn and if you place six Tombstones, an NPC will appear with some unique loot. You can also send NPCs there and it won't affect their overall happiness, though some items may disappear from their inventory.

It shouldn't take long to create a decent Graveyard Biome once you've placed a few Tombstones, so let's take a look at how to craft using Ecto Mist.

Terraria Ecto Mist: How to craft walls

If you place a Work Bench in the Graveyard Biome, you'll be able to craft using the Ecto Mist that's floating around. You'll be able to create all manner of walls and blocks using the Ecto Mist, which is good news at last. To create the Dirt Wall, for example, you'll need a pile of Dirt which you can then use to build a safe wall around the Biome.

There are also unique items available when using an Iron or Lead Anvil as well, such as a Coffin Minecart and the Gravedigger's Shovel. The Heavy Work Bench can also be used with Ecto Mist to create special stone blocks using Amber and Diamonds, and you can even create Iron Bars.
