I've recently found out about the dungeon crates that you can fish for, well, you guessed it, in the dungeon. I created a large body of water in it, and have been fishing for maybe an hour or so now. I buffed with a crate potion, but the only crates I'm getting are the wooden, iron, and golden. I also keep getting fish from the underground area only, such as armored cavefish. I know that I'm IN the dungeon area, because the music is playing, and the mobs are spawning. So I'm in the dungeon biome, have tons of crate potions, but I can't get anything but underground catches...

The Terraria wiki states this:

"As long as you are below 0 depth and in front of natural Dungeon wall, you are counted as being in the Dungeon. (It is notable that the music changes as well. This is an easy way to tell if you are in the Dungeon.)"

My guess would be that you are not standing in front of a natural dungeon wall.

  • What does it mean by "Natural dungeon wall"? Do you just mean inside between 2 sets of dungeon walls? Because the music is still playing... Oct 14, 2018 at 20:20
  • @RoboMaster122 I believe they mean a dungeon wall that was generated when the world was created, not one built by the player. Oct 14, 2018 at 20:31
  • Oooooh. Well in that case, I shouldn't be having a problem..... Weird.. Maybe It's because I broke some of the walls nearby, but I doubt that's the reason. Oct 14, 2018 at 20:38
  • @RoboMaster122 I'm not sure if the Wiki means background wall or block wall. Are you touching both? Oct 14, 2018 at 20:52
  • Wait, TOUCHING? I mean, I'm touching the backwall, and I'm inside the regular blocks, but I made a small wooden platform for safety... Maybe I was doing it wrong the whole time! Oct 14, 2018 at 21:04
