This is actually your friends fault. If you don't want to lose items on death you need to set your character to softcore while creating them. Your friends must have accidentally set theirs to mediumcore without thinking about it. Sadly there is no way to set a character to softcore after creating them so your friends will need to make new characters if ...

Why? When you create a character, you can select difficulty, which impact your losses upon death: Softcore: Softcore characters drop half (3/4 on Expert mode) of their coins when killed by an enemy. Mediumcore: Mediumcore characters drop all of their items upon death, including all coins and ammo. Hardcore: Hardcore characters die permanently, and drop all ...

That looks like the mist that appears in a Graveyard. You can get rid of it by using your pickaxe to remove any tombstones or grave markers in the area.

On the bottom of your screen there (I highlighted it in the above screenshot), it looks like you have a lot of purple (corrupted) ice blocks. A house that has too much corruption (or crimson) close by will become unhabitable. You should either move the house away from those blocks, or remove them from near your base.

NPCs don't say what biome or neighbours they like, they say what they think of their current biome and neighbours. Your Merchant and Zoologist are mentioning liking the forest because they're living in the forest.

Here, I just made this: Just what the GIF says, left click and hold to drag the dirt, then let go of the left click to drop the dirt like sand. Note: If you want the dirt to break, just let go of the left click while your mouse is inside of a tile.

The loot bags in Terraria are totally random, and its contents are chosen by an RNG (Random Number Generator) In your case, you just got lucky. Loot bags contents depend on the boss it comes from and is then chosen with an RNG, along with any modifiers the loot may have, and is not dependent or chosen with the cycles of night and day... which is rather ...

You will find most of the altars in the corruption or crimson area. Usually, there are caverns or chasms on the surface that will lead to areas with many altars and shadow orbs or crimson hearts (depending on whether your world is corruption or crimson). They are probably about 100-150 blocks down. You can also find random altars in other biomes besides ...

Sadly no there isn't any cross platform at the moment, but they are trying to get all platforms on the same update so they can do cross platform play. currently its Android With Iphone, Playstation With Xbox and pc with pc. :P

All water evaporates in the Underworld. However, due to the often laggy nature of big bodies of water, sometimes you can glitch a puddle into the Underworld without it evaporating. However, once it settles, if you mine a block from the bottom of that puddle, it will begin to evaporate.

When you dismiss the dialogue box, the item goes back into your inventory.

A boss defeated while the difficulty is set to Master will drop the same items it would on a Master world - meaning its Master level items, its Expert level items, and its regular drops. Similarly, a boss defeated while the difficulty is set to Expert level will drop its Expert level items and its regular drops.

You can always complete the Bestiary, but you will also need enemies from the other type of evil. This includes the evil-specific bosses, the Eater of Worlds and the Brain of Cthulhu. You can accomplish this by taking some Ebonstone or Crimstone from a different world, or by purchasing the appropriate seeds from the Dryad. Once in hardmode, the Dryad will ...

Your options are pretty limited. You can get the Amazon, which is a 20 damage yoyo (compared to the Malaise's 16). It can be crafted from materials found in the jungle. The only other alternative is Code 1, which is randomly sold by the Traveling Merchant (so it's unlikely to show up by the time you progress further). Every other yoyo requires either ...

There are a few things you can try to do to spawn the guide back in but first Check your map and in any caves around spawn. There is a good chance that he fell down into a cave. if you can't find him on your map then it must have been a bug causing him not to spawn in. Try to Build some houses. If the guide isn't spawned then he should be able to spawn ...

Yes, I would also assume wraiths are the only enemies that could possibly kill your NPCs during a blood moon. The best way to stop wraiths from killing npcs is to make sure their houses are 6+ tiles above any flat surface. Of course it's still possible for Wraiths to spawn on top of the houses and damage your NPcs as they "fall through" the house. You could ...

As mentioned on the Terraria Wiki: The side walls (vertical blocks) can be made of blocks, Doors, Platforms or Tall Gates. The floor and ceiling (horizontal blocks) can be made of blocks, Trap Doors or Platforms. The whole floor cannot be made of platforms. Beyond that, there are no restrictions on specific types of blocks. Houses can be made out ...

Terraria has game save files in the documents folder of current user. Check if there is still a save file remaining.

Your only options are to Craft a new Drill Steal it back Make him give it back (He would if he's really your friend) A Drill / Pickaxe is 100% necessary for progression in the game so if you can't do any of those for some odd reason you're out of luck.

According to the official Terraria wiki: Golem is a Hardmode, post-Plantera boss found in the Jungle Temple. It can only be fought after Plantera has been defeated in the current world. So, yes, you need to defeat Plantera first. You'll also need a Lihzard Power Cell, if you don't have one already: Golem is summoned by using the ⚷ Open / Activate key ...

This is impossible. Per the wiki, the minimum amount of damage you can do to enemies is 1. You can see this for yourself by fighting a Dungeon Guardian. They have 9999 defense, which means they reduce incoming damage by ~5000. Even the strongest weapons in the game don't do that much damage, which means that theoretically it cannot be damaged at all. ...

Firstly you should try digging down in the corruption (or use bombs/dynamite) as there should be some alters underground there. However, if you are still unable to find any in the corruption then there will be some scattered throughout your world. According to the wiki: Altars encountered outside of the Corruption/Crimson on a given map will always be ...

You cannot capture the sun, moon or certain weather effects with the in-game camera mode. In the camera settings, there is a toggle for entities, but this only includes "living" things like the player, NPCs, monsters, and pets. You can also disable the entire background. The only way I can think of where you could make this partially work is if you took an ...

Yes, you can earn achievements while in Journey Mode. I'm not entirely sure if all of them are achievable, however I can confirm that I received a few achievements (Vehicular Manslaughter, Benched) from a Journey Mode world. I don't see any achievements specifically relating to Master Mode either, so I would imagine you can achieve everything in Journey Mode....

Duplicated accessories and weapons have no modifier at all. This is pretty easy to test with any of the starting equipment, as it only takes one weapon or accessory to fully research them.

There is now a faster way to build stairs without the hammer: On the PC version, you can select a platform and hold down the "Ctrl" key. This will highlight a single block were the platform can be placed. If you place them in a diagonal instead of horizontal, it will automatically become stairs. Not sure how it is done in xbox or other versions.

Just tested this by using different headgears with the terra blade. I can confirm that melee damage boosts the terra blade projectiles, not mage damage.

Demon Altars spawn underground in the corruption (or very rarely thoughout the rest of the world), you won't see any on the surface. Keep checking chasms to see which one will actually lead underground. If you don't want to explore and hope to find a deeper chasm then you can also dig your way underground. The easiest way would be to use dynamite/bombs to ...

From the wiki: Natural walls will not stop enemies from spawning, and cannot be utilised for Houses. Also from the wiki, on destroying and placing natural walls: Certain walls, [] exist in both natural and housing forms. With these walls, the player must break the natural walls and replace them in order to allow them to count as housing walls. This ...

The generation of the Underground Hallow biome isn't a column underneath the Hallow - it's one half of a V shape starting from the centre of the map's Underworld, the other side of which is either Corruption or Crimson (depending on which of these was initially on the map). The Terraria Wiki's Hardmode entry has an image showing an example of the V shape ...
