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:

enter image description here

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?

    Not normal, probably edited the save.

1 Answer 1


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? Commented Jan 28, 2014 at 15:08

    Nah, your friend is a cheater. There's no (known) glitch that does that

  • Also, isn't exploitation of a glitch another form of cheating? Commented Jan 28, 2014 at 22:42
  • @EtherDragon Possibly, but that's certainly more controversial than save editing.
