As for me, the argument to use allay as wireless hopper sounds really wild, i don't think he's so dumb so that he'll stay in place to wait for the "example item" to drop, because without it he won't grab anything.
I've farmed some items for fun (ingredients of greedy ring), and got them after 6 Prate invasions, getting coin gun took 8-9 more invasions.
Currently farming RoD, the biggest fear is that i leave the world when it's dropped and i'm not collected it because i wasn't attentive to the items laying in "hallowed cave area" (in brackets because it's looking too bad to be called like that)
Symbols like ¹ ² ³ can go invisible much better than others using ispoiler like this "¹ ² ³", so that you can hide the fact that "dead meme" is squared in " if Rick Astley dies he'll become dead meme²"
I've found really strange generation, that's how it can be described:
In jungle deep below, near temple, is a marble biome which filled with both water and lava + on separator obsidian level lays underwater chest.
It's not just reeeally rare (actually 20%+, but crate also has it's own drop chance) to get a hardmode ore in crates, it also drops random one, not between those you have in the world, but between ALL. So it's hard to make full armor from fishing.
And i hate tin/cooper since they are the loot i get the most. I mean it's obsolete even in pre-hm, so getting those in hm is annoying.
