A bunch more screenies, mainly the Rod of Discord farm.
Starting off with farming fangs for the spider set, an essential part of my Rod of Discord farm.
Yoyo bag + Gradient courtesy of the skeleton merchant in my gem tree farm(well most of it at least, I had to craft the string obviously, then combine the parts into the bag)

Now for some AFK Rod of Discord farming! With spider staff and spider armor, I have what I need.
Here it is in action, note the chaos elementals can spawn outside of the hallow if theres pearlstone present(same with enchanted swords), ebonstone is used to make the farm a neutral area in order to stop biome mimics.
The slime mount in water tricks the game into thinking I am not idle, preventing the mechanic where it stops their spawns if I was "idle".

Had a blood moon happen, even more spawns! For a time.

Since all I was doing in this farm was sitting in one spot waiting for drops I checked my map out of curiosity. Turns out one of the jungle spots I made worked! Theres chlorophyte! Can't wait to mine that up and make a farm with it! >.<

Diggers were becoming a problem, I didn't realise that they're dirty cheaters when offscreen, digging through air when I'm not looking, so I had to set up a means to dispose of them, as they were hogging up spawn slots. That's when I got the idea to try boulder statues.

It worked to a degree, but I felt they needed to die a little faster, so I set up more on a seperate timer. (More frequent boulder dropping)

Hopefully that'll help clear out the rather annoying diggers. But that's all I got for now! Now it's time to sit here and patiently wait for a rod of discord to drop! My minions will keep the enchanted swords away while the chaos elementals won't teleport onto lava, meaning they'll just run amongst the top area. The lava above as I said before is to pick off bats that would otherwise hog up spawn slots.
EDIT: It has been acquired, Rod of Discord get!

Took a few hours of AFKing but RNG finally gave it up.
I was unaware that you could cancel biome mimic spawns that way. You learn something new every day.
