I don't know about anyone else but I found the drop rate on Souls of Night rather annoying and monsters don't seem to spawn nearly as fast in the Underground Corruption as they do in the Underground Hallow. Well, after destroying one of the last orbs on my world the other day, I killed the Eater of Worlds and as I was killing it, each segmented killed has a chance to drop a Soul of Night. Using this, I made 8 Worm Food and gave it a try to see exactly how well it would work. Well... it worked wonders.
8 Worm Food
65 Souls of Night
~10 mins of my time
Definitely the way to go for anyone looking to farm up some Souls of Night really quick

meteor heads are also good for getting souls, although doing that might be better for night souls meteor heads have the benefit that you don't need to keep getting meat and vile powder, you just need to stand in one spot and kill things

dazbuzz posted... Could you not do this with souls of light too? Just kill it in underground hallow.
If you haven't forgotten yet.. Worm Food is only can be used in Corruption. Also Eater of Worlds will disappear if you leave the Corruption. So unless there is way to make it happen, you cannot kill it in Hallowed area. For Soul of Light, I think it is better to just use Meteorite trick for farming.
I just tried this and only got about 6 Souls of Night from one EoW, however it was the easiest thing in the world to do, since one swing of the Excalibur with the buffs I have destroyed the head segment in one hit. I just sat in front of him and swung, he'd grind himself to death on the sword, and then I'd pick up the items. It's maybe not as good as the meteor method, but it definitely works if you've got some spare worm food to use.
As far as just regular grinding goes, Cursed Flames sell for about 8 gold a stack, so if you're doing it that way at least you can make some money.
