Yeah dusts are a ton cheaper, and it goes pretty fast too, you just spread them it covers like 4x6 blocks or so, then you dig it easily. Dynamite is faster but it costs a lot and if you mess up the placement you have to reuse one and shit, I didn't bother. Dusts are the "normal" way to progress, but you can easily unlock dynamite vendor before you even reach the stats to spawn the eye, and bypass that part entirely(he'll still spawn though I'm pretty sure). There's also a lot of other shortcuts and other optional stuff as I mentionned, like sky islands, pyramids(if spawned), dungeon on normal, ice biome, normal jungle for queen bee+items and so on and lots of stuff you can craft in hardmode that's not necessary but cool like wings(can buy them too but need the proper setup), various spells and such.

Upgrade the Obsidian Shield to a: Ankh Shield - Terraria Wiki

Lava Waders aren't very useful end game.
Why aren't you wearing a wall of flesh item? You can get these now: Warrior Emblem - Terraria Wiki Avenger Emblem - Terraria Wiki
And later upgrade it into: Destroyer Emblem - Terraria Wiki
(You can actually wear all three if you want to stack damage)
Get those reforged to all to +3 or +4 armor and that should pretty much get you through hardmode dungeon.

yeah, I used bombs. They work vs corruption/crimson blocks. also obsidian apparently. didnt know that. And you have a ton from pots very likely. Although they do cost more then purification powder if you are buying. Sticky bombs let you aim them pretty well as well.
