I'm not normally one for cheat codes, but my son was playing with my Terraria character on his own the other day, and accidentally threw away several items that I had worked hard to obtain. Is there an easy way to assign those items back to my character?
TerrariViewer is the best character editor I've used for the game (and I am one for cheat codes)
Every now and then I need to play referee when my kids jump onto each others' worlds and fight over certain items. When I find that they're arguing over something small, like golden chests or a stack of material, I usually jump onto a map that I have downloaded, Builders Workshop. I'd recommend poking through there to see if you need to restore lost items.
On the iPad, there is a built-in editor. If you are playing the game and press pause then repeatedly press the far top left corner of the screen the dev editor comes up. Press the top angler fish button.
Go to this link and press expand on the first two expand buttons. Vanilla Terraria only has ids up to 621. Find an item id, then go back to Terraria and type item (item id) and it will give you the item.
I use Terrasavr.
It doesn't require a download because it is online based.
