In Terraria 1.3, Heart Statues appear to only be triggerable once every 10 seconds. This appears to differ from the previous patches, in which the statue could conceivably be triggered 6 times at once (one for each wiring connection). Was this change introduced in 1.3?

What are some alternate ways that hearts can be generated or farmed?

    Not really, Afaik the cooldown was always 10 seconds. And no... In regards to hearts, we only got heart statues.

    I'm aware that the cool down has always been 10 seconds, but previously, that was per wiring connection. In essence, you could get as many as 6 hearts from a single statue every 10 seconds. Now it appears that you can only get 1. This makes my setup for fighting the Golem that much more difficult. Jul 12, 2015 at 12:56
  • Oh yeah after a scan of the comments in the wikia it appears the statues started allowing multiple connections after 1.2. It may have been introduced as a bug. So yeah that was probably removed in 1.3. Patch notes do not show changes about that though.

The ability to trigger statue mechanisms once every ten seconds per connection was a bug, and was fixed in the 1.3 patch, as detailed in the patch notes:

  • ...
  • Fixed bug where Worms would not drop gore segments on death.
  • Fixed a bug where you could spawn a heart/enemy from a statue using wires faster than intended..
  • Fixed a bug where the game could crash if the Rod of Discord was used on the far right of the world.
  • ...


Statue mechanisms are now triggered at most once every ten seconds irrespective of how many connections they have.

  • Well, there goes my heart farm. :-/ Thanks for the info; I somehow missed that in the change log. Jul 13, 2015 at 13:55
  • @JonahBishop I've just realised I completely missed the second part of your question... If you've got access to Vampire Knives and a high level melee set you might find farming the Golem a bit easier. With VK I rarely struggle against most bosses. Moon Lord is another matter entirely...
