kill the eater of worlds a few times. To kill the eyeball silver armor and a gold sword should do it.

As most answers only focus on tree farms, here's both solutions to get a lot of wood: The fast way I found that the fastest way to get a lot of wood quickly was not to have a tree farm at all! I found it far more efficient (time wise) to just create a new world, pick a direction (say East), and just chop every tree until you hit the ocean. Use the mirror ...

No. Hardmode is per world. When hardmode starts after you defeat the Wall of Flesh, it will only affect the current world, and doesn't affect any others you may have saved or created.

I recommend using Tedit. It has a tool that allows you to copy part of a world and save it. The exact steps to using said tool are as follows: Download and install a suitable version of Tedit. If working with a 1.3 world, I recommend using the experimental version here. It seems to work okay without corrupting worlds, but nevertheless you should backup ...

If you turned off the server without saving, then it won't have saved the contents of the chest... but the player character that put the items in the chest will have lost the items as well. In other words, your items are gone. I hope you had a backup of your .plr file, or else that you at least remember what you had. If you need to replace your items, I ...

Another option is either the Deathbringer pickaxe (Crimson) or Nightmare pickaxe (corruption). Both of these can mine all pre-hardmode ores, but not hardmode ores. The Deathbringer pickaxe is the fastest pre-hardmode pick for most common blocks, with the Nightmare pickaxe being only slightly slower. Both of these pick axes require 12 crimtane/demonite ...

You open your inventory, then over on the right side next to your armor you will see a house icon. Click on this. You should now see a list of all your NPCs. To move them, simply select them from this list, then select a valid house in your world (you have to keep the inventory screen open). As long as the selected house is valid and unoccupied this will ...

The pickaxe you're going to want to go for is the Reaver Shark. It's a pickaxe that can mine all the easy mode ores, and the beginning hard mode ores, and can be acquired from the very beginning of the game. It can be obtained by fishing in the ocean, with a 1:50 chance of getting it with 100 fishing power.

I use Terrasavr. It doesn't require a download because it is online based.

The tree indicates what is on the world. You can have either Purple/Green leaves which means that the world will have Corruption, or you can have Red/Green leaves which means that the world will have Crimson. Also after defeating the Wall of Flesh (and entering hard mode) a yellow streak will appear on the tree indicating that the world has hallow in it. ...

You can not change the ore a world is set to generate, however, I have come up with two solutions that do me quite well. Using the Extractinator: Farming Silt and Slush With an Extractinator, you can convert Silt and Slush into any number of useful materials. While completely random, you will commonly receive coins, jewels and ore. Before creating my ...

Short answer: No The world will be generated with only one of these ores (chosen at random) and once generated, you cannot change the world other than through standard gameplay. Without using a world editor, a world cannot contain natural ores of a type it didn't generate with. Though people could still bring ore mined from another world in and place it. ...

The best way I found is to lay down about 1000+ tiles on either side of you, obviously using the blocks of the biome you want to create.

Use strong armour, bring potions, use a rangerd or magic weapon and try to avoid being hit. Always stay on the move.

As of 1.3, the rules for Chlorophyte spread have changed. There is now a limit of 41 blocks of Chlorophyte in a 95 block radius, so farms need to be much more spread out than previously. Neither a 5x5 nor a 3x3 farm will be optimal. If you want to do a rectangular farm, 6x7 is now the optimal size My farm setup involves 2x 2x9 mud wells with one space ...

From your items I can see that you're in hardmode, a common reason for a valid housing to become invalid is because of the spreading of corruption/crimson. If a room is within ~42 blocks of corruption/crimson, that house becomes invalid housing for NPC's. You can purify nearby corruption/crimson and see if that makes the house valid. If it does I would ...

Looking at the right side of your minimap, it seems you have Crimson close to your house. NPC's will not move in with Corruption/Crimson nearby. The Corruption/Crimson can spread, it probably spread too close to your house. Clear it out with Holy Water or the Clentaminator.

If there are enough NPCs in your base, having a water candle in it is actually a good idea. NPCs prevent enemies from spawning, so the water candle will increase the spawn rate of critters such as fireflies, Butterflies, Squirrels, and Rabbits. The only time it is a bad idea to have a water candle in your base is during Blood Moons and Solar Eclipses, where ...

Actually, there is another way to get Shadow Scales. Fight a bunch of Eaters of Souls (you will obviously get some armor in the process) approximately 10000, and I don't know about you, but I got a Shadow Scale. Just saying. I play on mobile.

As of version 1.3.0.1 each of the 6 tiles of a functional statue now have the same cooldown, which prevents the common practice of wiring up a statue to give 6 times as many monsters or items. So after this update there is no optimal way to wire up a statue, as long as you have a wire connected to it anywhere and a way to trigger the wire, that's all you ...

Nope Everything you have done is still there, you just get a streak of Hallow and Corruption that both start at spawn location but down in the hell level that go up and to the right and left (randomly which one goes which way) forming a big V. The mobs that spawn now include the hard mode mobs as well so the world overall is now more dangerous, but you ...

Since no one else is going to answer. I turned the Frame Skip to OFF. This not only seemed to cause a huge fluctuation in CPU usage and FPS, but also limited the base FPS to be at 45. Tldr. Frame skip sucks, dont use it.

Break 3 crystals in the corruption. This will summon The Destroyer. Kill The Destroyer, and it will drop shadow scales.

Pickaxes are pretty much always better than their drill counterpart as of patch 1.3.0.8. All pickaxes and drills of the same ore have the same pickaxe power and mining speed (except orichalcum, where the pickaxe has a faster mining speed). However-- Pickaxes have the advantage of having knockback (which can help with enemies when you are mining). They can ...

If you're houses are made of anything except sand, grass:dirt, ice, normal stone, or mud* then the crimson cannot spread or convert them. Those listed blocks (and some of their alternate types) are the only blocks that actually convert. Blocks which are crafted are typically safe. You houses only need 1 block of suitable material surrounding themselves, and ...

A 3 block wide hole around the whole bottom of your house will work as crimson can't grow that far away. Be sure to make the hole connect under your house or underground to ensure no crimson slips in that way.

All you need to do is have a Pickaxe in your inventory somewhere, then move your mouse to a block within ~1-2 block range of your person and hold shift, this will auto equip the pickaxe, now just hold left click and you will start to mine the block under the cursor. Alternatively put the pickaxe in the hotbar (it defaults to number 2 when you first spawn). ...

In Terraria, you start with 3 Copper Tools. Copper Shortsword Copper Pickaxe Copper Axe They all have different purposes and are used for different things. The Copper Shortsword is just your regular shortsword. It is used to attack enemies. When you progress in the game, I recommend making a broadsword as it attacks a wider range of enemies than the ...

IF you have a pick, and you should as you start with one, make sure the slot its in is selected. Then mouse over a nearby block that you wish to break. Your should have a mouse pointer that appears like a red corner pointer. This points to the active block There are two modes for mining. One is like an auto mode, you just point and hold the mouse button ...

put your cursor on the block you want to mine and use mouse 1. if that does not work, maybe a tree is blocking the mining of the blocks under it or you do not have a pickaxe strong enough to mine that specific material.

Your observations for Multiplayer health scaling is only on Expert Mode. Only health scales, not damage. Only boss health scales. Common enemies have static health (but double compared to normal mode) It is per server, so anyone logged in to that server contributes to boss health scaling. This means having more players can potentially be detrimental if ...

It sounds like your referring to Swamp Zombies. Unfortunately, they do not drop their heads, nor do any zombies in general.

Okay, I found the problem. At some point in the beta, the save location was moved from ~/My Games/Terraria to ~/.local/share/Terraria. I was still trying to copy from the My Games folder, not realizing those were old files.

Unfortunately, all I can tell you is that Random Numbers are Random. 1 in 2500 is... not a whole lot, I'm afraid. And even after killing 2500 mobs, you're not guaranteed one. So, if there's no way to get better odds, how can we maximize those odds? Simple -- spawn as many mobs as possible, then kill them. The key here, (ha!) is that it doesn't matter what ...

Solution: provided by theChrisKent, taken from the question: I have used a combination of the answers below to make this game even more awesome. First I setup a Dedicated server as mentioned by OrigamiRobot. This was super simple and meets my requirements perfectly. I don't mind leaving my computer on all the time with this running. To do this I also had to ...

The world is most likely in the cloud. When you move a world or a character to cloud in the Terraria interface, is literally moving it, not making a copy, your world resides in the cloud, and it takes precedence over anything local. Now you're saying that when creating new worlds, they're both the same; so there might be a problem with your worlds being ...

Yes, a Sandstorm in a Balloon has an improved double jump. Reddit user DataNalle posted an infographic showing the jump heights of all jump-modifying items. As seen in the picture, the Sandstorm in a Bottle only goes up 20 tiles, while the Sandstorm in a Balloon boasts a distance of 36 tiles. Note that the Cloud in a Bottle only goes up 11 tiles, which its ...
