Strategy

  • Use spinning spikes the same way you would use normal Spikes, only to greater effect.
  • Keep in mind that spinning spikes cost more Resources than Spikes or Greater Spikes so you will need more resources depending on how much you place
  • Trap a Bull or other Hostile Mob using a Pit Trap, then place a Spinning Spike next to it to kill it fast, or use one to make a dam in the river and trap it like that, and it will perish without you having to lift a finger.
