I'm trying to get an arena ready for a big fight against The Destroyer. I built this arena above The Dungeon after defeating Skeletron. After a long time on the wiki, my friends helped me figure out a good arena. But while I'm building this, I have doubt that this is a good arena.enter image description here

Should I stick with this arena and continue what I started, or should I completely restart and change to something else?

You got the right idea. However it's too short. You need at least triple that length. Preferably 4 or 5 times. The Destroyer is really long and you will run out of space quickly.

In addition each platform is a bit too close. Unless you don't have rocket boots they will slow you down instead of helping.

Finally you could use some heart lanterns and campfires to aid with health regen.


For the Destroyer, I would recommend build a TON of raised wooden platforms like that, but longer, such as 5 or 6 times that size. I would also recommend setting up a Campfire somewhere, as well as some Heart Lanterns, and Stars in Bottles, if you use mana. Here is another thing I would highly recommend: Occasionally, the Destroyer will shoot a TON of lasers at once, and I find that really annoying. But: I found a method to prevent lasers from hitting you. The Destroyer’s lasers are unable to pass through solid blocks, so set up a small room ( Roughly 5x5 ) with doors at both ends. That way you can protect yourself.

Anyways, good luck, and I hope these strategies help!
