How to Get Mint Chunks From the Mints

To get the Mint Chunks from the mints you will need a tier 2 hammer. It's called the Insect Hammer and if you haven't got the recipe yet you can get it by analyzing the Boiling Gland of a Bombardier Beetle (tips on finding and killing one here). Hit the mints with your hammer to break them apart. You now have Mint Chunks!
