I started a new world and I went to the underworld to fight the Wall of flesh but when I dropped the Guides doll into the lava it didn't summon the wall of flesh. I checked the map to see if the Guide is dead or something but he isn't. I did it again and I stood near the lava so it is easy to understand if it went to the lava but nothing happened. Can you guys explain what is going on and let me know if you experienced it.
I see two possibilities:
- You were not in the Underworld (where you see the background with the rivers of lava). Dropping the doll into lava in higher layers does not work.
- You think you threw the doll but you actually tried to use it by selecting it on the hotbar or picking it up and then right-clicking. Throwing is a different action (usually on the 't' key). If you see the doll fly into the lava and it's gone from your inventory, then you threw it.
