My friend claims he used to play Terraria in his previous so-call 'hardmode' account, but it seems as if he's mastered the game having very much the best of all items. Being very hard to believe as I got him the game however he claims it to be a file of his old player from his friends computer.

That is still believable, but just look at the image below:

If you do notice his buff icon has an ironskin potion and swiftness potion stacking up to 9999 hours, could anyone confirm, if this is normal?

By the way, I looked through his perspective through Skype. – elfinlocks2151 Jan 28 '14 at 14:51
Not normal, probably edited the save. – 3ventic Jan 28 '14 at 14:53

There is no way your friend got those buffs legitimately. The max duration for the Ironskin buff is 5 minutes and Swiftness buff is 4 minutes.

Buffs also do not stack in effect or duration.

Your friend cheated those buffs.

Oh yeah, but my friend claims it's a glitch. Is that believable? – elfinlocks2151 Jan 28 '14 at 15:08
@elfinlocks2151 No. – Raven Dreamer Jan 28 '14 at 15:14
Nah, your friend is a cheater. There's no (known) glitch that does that – 5pike Jan 28 '14 at 15:16
Also, isn't exploitation of a glitch another form of cheating? – EtherDragon Jan 28 '14 at 22:42
@EtherDragon Possibly, but that's certainly more controversial than save editing. – Brilliand Jan 28 '14 at 22:50
