The Profaned Core is a post-Moon Lord item used to summon Providence, the Profaned Goddess in the Underworld or Hallow during daytime. It is dropped by the Profaned Guardians. A non-consumable version can be crafted using it along with many Unholy Essences.
Attempting to use the item outside of the Hallow or Underworld biomes, during the Night, while Providence is alive, or using it in a world that has no bosses defeated will cause it to do nothing.
The following recipe allows the player to craft a non-consumable variation of the item, allowing them to summon Providence as many times as they want.
- The consumable version of the Profaned Core is one of the two boss summoning items that are neither crafted nor bought, the other being the Eidolon Tablet.
