Blood Moon, Battle Potion, and a water candle placed. Is there any other way or do any of these work by adding more? (more players using battle potion, or more water candles on the screen)

    The effects stack, but the candle must be held not placed.

  • Water Candle only works when it's equipped. Meaning that when you place it somewhere, it won't work.

  • If watercandle worked from the time its placed on then it would be immediately active, since there are multiple ones places in the dungeon.

  • @Batophobia the "official" wiki claims placed water candles do increase enemy spawns if they are nearby, and also stack with held water candles as of 1.2, though I don't know what their source is. terraria.gamepedia.com/Water_Candle

The Jungle has an increased spawn rate. There's a chart here showing the spawn rates, and it shows that the Jungle during a Blood Moon has a 1-in-60 chance of a monster spawning every 'tick', compared to 1 in 108 during Blood Moon in other biomes.

The Jungle also has the highest spawn limit, with a limit of 15 mobs during a Blood Moon, vs. 11 in other biomes.

    So THAT's why I seem to be constantly swarmed by jungle bats and hornets there.
