I have no idea what to do next. I can't kill the Wall of Flesh and I have Necro Armor, Fiery Greatsword, Star Cannon, Book of Skulls, Muramusa, Molten Helmet, and Flamearang

What can I do now?

  • You can not progress to the next part until you kill WoF. That enables the end-game part of Hardmode. – Shadow Z. May 1 '15 at 22:14
  • I know that thats why im stuck I cant kill him – Ryan May 1 '15 at 22:16
  • I don't believe this is a duplicate. The question isn't asking "How do I kill the Wall of Flesh?", but "I'm not properly prepared to defeat the Wall of Flesh, what should I be doing instead?" I'm not sure if a question like that works for a game like Terraria (so maybe it should be closed for another reason), but it's definitely not a dup. – Wipqozn May 2 '15 at 0:37
  • @Wipqozn I put in a close vote but retracted when I reread the question then edited it to format it properly. This question is more along the lines of "Is there anything I can progress in if I can't beat the Wall of Flesh", whereas the question Frank linked is "I'm facing the Wall of Flesh, how do I beat it?" – sayu May 2 '15 at 0:46

There's a few things you can do if beating the boss isn't an option:

  • Get complete armor sets. If you have Necro Armor and the Molten Helmet, you can't really take advantage of the full armor set bonus. Find what "role" you play best as (either Ranged, Magic, Melee), and get the appropriate armor set for it. Since you seem to play as a ranged character, considering getting the full set of Necro Armor to give a higher chance to not consume ammo, especially for an expensive ammo consumer like your Star Cannon
  • Prepare a skybridge in Hell. Makes the fight much easier to manage. You don't want to fall into lava just when you're about to kill the boss, so manage and prepare it carefully.
  • Stock up on potions. Cannot emphasize this enough. Potions are a must have when fighting the boss
  • Go exploring! Get some accessories for your character. Digging deep into the ground to hunt for Hermes Boots so you can build Rocket Boots and other accessories can make fighting tougher bosses much easier. You can also try going for the Ankh Shield, a combination of the Ankh Charm + Obisidan Shield, which provides extra defense and provides immunity against most debuffs, something especially helpful in some of the later tougher bossfights.
