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.

In my worlds, any pick can do it. Try a copper one to start with. Remember though, stronger pickaxes can mine faster.

Queen Bee and Plantera were introduced in Update 1.2, which went live on September 30, 2013. If your world was created in 2013 before that date, the map simply didn't generate the Queen Bee area. However, to get Plantera to spawn, you need to kill all 3 Mechanical Bosses to make Plantera's Bulbs to appear at the Underground Jungle. The best way to deal with ...

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.

This guy in your video was using the Calamity Mod. You'll have to download the mod before you can have diamond hearts. (was it Chippy?) To increase your max HP in base terraria, you have 3 options: Find a Life Heart underground, and use it. Increases max HP by 20, to 400 cap. Find a Life Fruit in the Underground Jungle, post-Plantera (or anytime on mobile, ...

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 ...

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.

If you can't find any on your map, smash some more altars. Here is a chart: On a small map Palladium ore spawns below a depth of 760 feet (380 tiles). On a medium map Palladium ore spawns below a depth of 1,100 feet (550 tiles). On a large map Palladium ore spawns below a depth of 1,270 feet (635 tiles). You can also fish for it in hardmode.

The Y-coordinate is taken at the character's feet. The depth displayed is the same as that shown by the Depth Meter which has a note that clarifies this. In addition, you can test it yourself by standing at the boundary between "underground" and "surface", which is at 0 feet depth. The boundary is clear if you remove the dirt walls and look for the change in ...

Get 75 pieces of cactus, which are easily found in the desert biome. Use a workbench to craft each piece of the armor set. Take a look at the official wiki for more info. It's a great resource when you're trying to learn about the game.

If by shiny you mean glowing, it's either the demonite or crimtane ores. You will need at least a gold/platinum pickaxe to mine it, or you can also use bombs/dynamite (make them sticky with gel for more precise mining). Outside of a handful of patches found in the corruption/crimson, it is so rarely found underground that you probably won't be able to ...

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 ...

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

It should be impossible to loot a natural dirt wall in any version of Terraria. It might be possible that a campfire was spawned in an underground camp, although the weird generation doesn't make sense. Is is possible that you accidentally broke wood walls or something similar? If this is not the case, then the only way you could collect loot is if they are ...

There is no way to skip any event (other than blood moon and solar eclipse using the enchanted sundial which you get from fishing crates) so you need to finish it. One way that could speed it up would be hoiks.

Wait until night and make sure the nurse and her house are out of view. After you've done that, she should teleport into her room. If, after that, you find her outside of her house, she has found a way out and you can simply repeat and she will be back.

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 ...

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 ...

To wire two teleporters together, I use levers, but you put some sort of trigger above the teleporter. Then wire the teleporter and the trigger to your other teleporter, and most of the time you'll need another trigger in the same wire path as the two teleporters and the first trigger, if you want to be able to go back. If you want to make a system going all ...

The Angler rewards based on number of quests completed has nothing to do with the items a player has. It's actually part of the character's data. So when you have something like the Golden Fishing Rod that is given out after the 30th completed quest, it is given out after that character completes 30 quests. Regardless of items they possess or the world they ...

Missing a day does nothing to the angler quest or rewards. You're fine. The only thing the rewards depend on is the number of times you do them. Short and sweet. See this page for more details. I'd recommend reading as much as you want on the Wikipedia for Terraria. It's very robust, and has a LOT of information about the game, most of which isn't something ...

All you need 3 hellstone ore, obsidian and a hellforge. You can use the hellforges down in the underworld, or take one from there to place in your home base. Crafting will work in either location however. wiki link

You can make another room and then an NPC will move in. If you don't get an arms dealer if you do this, just try again.

Given the algorithm used to spawn monsters, my guess is that a lot of them are spawning below you. Or rather, they're trying to. Basically, the game picks a random tile outside of your field to spawn a monster. If nothing is in that tile, it looks down until it finds solid ground. Because you're standing in a place that's nearly at the same height as your ...

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.

As Teo said here: Actually I managed to find a way, I don't know if it'll be the same for you guys but it's basically go into your Library > Application Support > and there should be a folder in there called Terraria that has your worlds and players and servers etc Another solution: If you are playing Terraria 1.3 on Steam: click the cloud icon on the ...

Save files between platforms are not compatible. Generally, console and PC versions of Terraria are very different, and the console versions are often behind as well. There used to be ways to do it between Xbox 360 and PC, which involved copying files and converting them with a tool someone made. This doesn't exist or work for Xbox One, though. Depending on ...

No, it does not dash through blocks/enemies. If you dash through an enemy, you will take damage, and knockback. If you attempt to dash through a wall, the wall will stop you.

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 ...
