So I'm preparing for hardmode. I've quarantined my crimson with the usual 4 block wide tunnels. What I'm wondering is should I actually just purify all of it? I've looked at the world in an online mapper and while this would be a big job with just purification powders I'm guessing it would be managable.
I've got a fishing farm and currently am at 80ish wooden, 50ish iron and 14 golden crates with some extra jungle, crimson and corruption crates. And I intend to get more crates before I switch to get a decent chance of being able to make a full set of armor and weapon hopefully without having to break an altar so that I can focus on containing the hallow and crimson that will spawn. I also have a full miners outfit but I'm afraid that will be hard to use with hardmode enemies around.
So in effect does it make sense to purify now or should I just wait for the clentaminator?
