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.

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.

As of 1.4, the strongest single-target weapon is the Zenith, which can deal around 70k DPS at its maximum. It averages roughly 30k DPS in standard gameplay, and can also hit multiple targets, making it the best all-around weapon in the game. This surpasses the Coin Gun's 1735 DPS, although the Coin Gun remains the best ranged option. You may want to use the ...

If you are willing to cover the entire place with walls, that will stop enemies from spawning. You can craft up something cheap like stone or normal wood walls and that will do. There are also some walls and wallpapers that look very cool and could make your place look just as cool as it does now. If you don't like the look of the walls I recommend using ...

You can make a diamond shape that you can go around continuously by holding one direction, but it won't have smooth edges. The wiki page's mention of bumpers and intersections leads me to believe it should look something like this style of Skeletron Arena, but smaller: The extreme left and right ends of the track have been hammered to be "bumper" ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...

The quickest way to earn that achievement would be to go into a new world, kill the Wall of Flesh immediately, and hang in the Crimson biome until the slime shows up. Achievements are game-wide, not world-specific. If you want to keep things to your current world though, my recommendation would be to grab enough crimson stone/seeds from your other world, and ...

It’s an odd situation, and I can’t say for certain what should’ve happened in that situation, I think it should’ve been dropped. But, if the item wasn’t and it’s now after the fact, there’s nothing you can do in vanilla terraria. However, if you’re playing version 1.3.5 or earlier, you have the option of using mods through T-Mod Loader. Another alternative, ...

You always need the mod used to join a modded playthrough. There is no way to join without it, you will get kicked out for not having it by the game.

Port You should be able to find the port in the console window that your server starts in (I would get the V6). IP (Local) To find the IP you can go to CMD and type ipconfig and grab the Temp IPV6 (or V4 if you got the V4 port) IP (Public) Just google “what is my ip”

If I were in that position, I would go on a crimson world and kill the Wall of Flesh, then kill the Crimslime. However, if you'd like to keep everything on that world, there's another solution. When the dryad is placed in a graveyard biome, she'll sell seeds for the opposite world evil during blood moons. So in your corruption world, she would sell crimson ...

Nevermind, think I figured out why. They aren't flocking, they're just stuck between a mountain and my house, and can't fly higher than my building to get out.

If you haven't yet progressed to hard mode through defeating a certain boss (which you won't meet unless you dispose of a certain item using a specific method), you have nothing to worry about. Before that, corruption/crimson spreads very slowly, only on the surface and is blocked by sunflowers in its path. So you don't really need to worry about the spread ...

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.

Expanding Aequitas's answer there's also: Garden Gnome: Increases Luck, effectively increasing damage inflicted and reducing received. Bast Statue: Increases defense by 5.

The only way to get shadow scales is by defeating the Eater of Worlds. Here are some strategies to defeat him: Defeat the Eye of Cthulhu by crafting a Suspicious Looking Eye at a demon altar(takes 10 lenses from Demon Eyes). Using this item will spawn the Eye of Cthulhu and when you defeat him(suggest using lots of flaming arrows with the best bow you have),...

Are you playing on mobile? If you are and you don't have auto-save on then you have to use "Save and exit" which is in the same menu as the beastiary and achievements. If you just force-exit the game your changes will not save.

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....

So first of all, you need a dedicated server. I used vps server from Heztner guys, but you can use any kind of tech you want (like raspberry pi or old pc with Ubuntu Server installed. Just make sure its minimal configuration fits Terraria Server). After you first powered up your device and created password, we'll install SSH to make our setting up process a ...

Depending on what "many" and "instantly" mean, something like this is possible. Here's a setup that can activate exactly one of the two announcement boxes in it in what I expect is 2-3 ticks from when the lever is pulled, although I am not an expert on Terraria's logic gate timings. It could be chained together to give more outputs, ...

Even if you know your port and public IP, there are a few things you need to consider if you want to host a server. Firewall Your router (the thing that connects your home network to the internet) has a firewall that blocks any incoming traffic that isn't a response to some outgoing traffic. This is to protect your home network from possible attacks from the ...

In order to move fluids by hand, you need a Bucket, rather than a bottle. Bottles are mostly for potion making. In terms of converting the filled bottle back to an empty one -- you're out of luck. Your only option is to make a new one from sand.

All purchases in Terraria give you change. Additional, all coins can be freely split and combined via crafting.

Standard progression is: Pre-hardmode -> Wall of Flesh -> Hardmode metals -> Mechanical bosses -> Plantera -> Golem -> etc. You're on the right track. Once you have killed all the mechanical bosses, you can start looking for Plantera's bulbs.

Pets function just like town NPCs, including counting towards the limit needed for a pylon to function. If they die, a random pet of the same type will show up, and they can be assigned to specific homes in the same manner as an NPC (although of course they can share a home with an NPC).

There have been no changes to NPC spawning behaviour in Master Mode. Double check that the houses you've built are valid and that you've met the requirements, as nothing else could be preventing NPCs from moving in.
