I bought this game on Steam's sales. Dang, it's so amazing. I'm still incredibly early in the game (I just reached the cavern layer, mined my first silver ore, but almost died to worms). That's my main problem in the game: I keep dying :P Oh well, just looking at the wiki, it's amazing how much content is actually in the game. :thumbup:

Some kind soul on a random server I joined gave me high end gear (a Flamarang and that fire spike flail thing). Still haven't the opportunity to fight the Eye of Cthulhu yet, because the stupid demon eyes refuse to drop lenses.

You're actually quite lucky to get a sunfury, those are likely a bit more difficult to obtain with the new version, due to the mob that drops them (bone serpents) spawning less frequently thanks to all the other new mobs that spawn there now as well. Not to mention it's quite likely one of the best weapons in the game, pvm wise (no clue about pvp, not my thing).

Demon eyes generally drop lenses every 3-4 eyes you kill (if not more often) so having trouble getting them is a bit unusual. Must be a bit of a dry streak, lol. Don't worry, you'll be up to your ears in them after a few more hours of game play :P

Just keep at it with killing the eyes, you'll get enough eventually. If worse comes to worse, the Eye of Cthulhu is supposed to automatically spawn after a certain point in the game, assuming you've met certain requirements - I believe it's having 200hp, and not having killed him before, and he'll spawn at some point in the evening after that (after giving you a warning message saying "an evil presence is watching you", of course). I'm not 100% sure on the requirements, however.

At the very least, once you do get him to spawn, you'll completely destroy him with that sunfury >.>


I personally haven't been playing a lot of Terraria lately, although I am heavily anticipating the next update, which I hope comes out within the next week or so - I think Tiy said at some point that it would be next month, and it's the 31st now (here, anyway), so...

I'm glad to see this topic still being posted in, as well. This game deserves to be recognized more, it's easily one of the best games I personally have ever played (and I've played a lot of video games >.>).

Was halfway mining a meteor when the night started, which became a blood moon. I didn't realise that blood moons increase the spawns of all monsters even if only 1 type of monster can spawn (ie tons of meteor heads). FML

They can be if they're coming in from multiple sides, but having them all on one side usually means you can just mine in their direction and have your pickaxe knock them back. It won't work on a blood moon, however >_>

Not gonna deny they're annoying as hell regardless, but if mining it out is being troublesome, get some dynamite and blow it up. It's not like Minecraft TNT, it doesn't destroy blocks, just turns them into items so you can collect them all. A couple well placed sticks will generally knock out enough meteorite to stop meteor heads from spawning (they require 50 ore to be placed in order to spawn, I believe).

Personally, I just mine it out since I'm stingy. Trying to do so when the thing is underwater without an obsidian skull... well, that's fun >.>

The 1.0.6 patch should be released today, which will increase overall difficulty of the game, balance classes and bring about a lot of new furniture for houses

Bit late to the party but I recently got this game. Been playing with a few people from the synch channel. It's fun to build with the other people but it's easy to get higher level stuff when you're playing with people who know what they're doing. And as for the bosses, well they're kind of pathetic, dying in a few seconds if all of us are attacking. Usually we wait for a blood moon and go to the corruption to fight like 3 or 4 at once, and I still haven't seen anyone die to them.

Bought this game some time ago. Definitely worth the $10!

TotalBiscuit and Jesse Cox are doing a let's play on this game. They make for a pretty comic duo. (part 1)

UPDATE 1.1 RELEASED!

New stuff! FLAMETHROWERS!


WOOHOO! Although it is a bit laggy/buggy, so for it looks promising :thumbsup:

The new, harder bosses look amazing, and the Wall of Flesh boss looks badass, and has a pretty funny way of summoning it as well (using the guide voodoo doll). Rocket boots and an Obsidian skull will be a must for fighting it.

Never forget. ~creeper face w/single tear~

I might have to start playing it again. It's been a long time since I've played.

Wall of Flesh isn't hard at all, he was a joke if anything ):

I do like the look of Adamantium Mage armour and the wings though. They're shiny~

The new statues are pretty cool. And not being harmed by catcus is awesome, they were a pain.

Found 2 crystal hearts and 2 gold chests on the same screen. I was so excited I forgot to take a screenshot. I found another heart crystal and another 2 gold chests not very far from there. I got about 8 gold for maybe 20 minutes of exploring. Not bad for a complete newbie, if I do say so myself.

Bit late to really comment on the 1.1 update (although I will say playing through hardmode was extremely fun), but I did want to comment on the 1.1.1 Holiday update fast.

And before I say anything, link to the patch notes: http://www.terrariao...s-update.70447/

Obviously, it was less of a content patch and more of a bugfix patch (although there's still some really nice Christmas themed stuff to play around with). The lag seems to be reduced by a bit - while I can't play in a maximised window on color lighting staying at 60FPS, I can at least stay on trippy lighting and have the quality of that up near 100% most of the time and maintain the usual 60FPS. A lot of the other fixes don't really apply to me (except them fixing wyverns, thank GOD for that -.-).

(Just a warning, spoilers ahead - although I doubt anyone reading this topic can be spoiled anyway)

The content part of the update, though... as long as you're updated to 1.1.1 and it's between now and the 31st (so I've heard, it lasts until the end of the 'holiday season'), all mobs can drop presents (even on old worlds, I got a number on my current hardmode world that was generated in 1.1). They can be obtained and opened regardless of if hardmode is enabled or not, but if hardmode isn't active yet, you can only get the candy cane blocks from them. You have to be in hardmode to get the snow globe from a present in order to summon the Frost Legion.

Snow globes are basically the Goblin Battle Standard for hardmode. Use it, causes a similar message to a goblin invasion (except it's the Frost Legion) to appear. It takes a minute or two to arrive, however.

Just a few notes about the mobs - they function as hardmode equivalents to the goblin army, so expect a beating if you get within range of their attacks. Mister Stabby I never had any issues with, since he has to get extremely close to do damage. Snowman Gangsta is the irritating one - it has a tommy gun, so expect these things to be shooting at you constantly. They seem to have a range similar to the gastropod, but they can't aim up, so you'll be safe hanging up above where they can jump and shoot across at you. Snow Balla I don't think does any damage with his projectiles correction, they do 35 damage with the snowball attack, and they can clog up the terrain fairly fast (making it easier for the others to gang up on you), so be cautious of that.

Overall, easy if you're cautious about maneuvering around them, but extremely dangerous if you get down too close to them - they all do 55 with melee if they ram into you, but thankfully the tommy gun and snowballs do a bit less.

I note that they also drop presents, so don't be surprised if you end up with more snow globes than you started with. I had one after opening about 40 presents with my girlfriend on our server, we used that and ended up with two more snow globes afterwards. Saving them for our new world so we can get some snow easily there + get the Santa Claus NPC to move in on that world (he sells the Santa vanity outfit as well as Christmas lights). And yes, you can create artificial snow biomes fairly easily with snow blocks - very low number it seems, considering the Snow Balla's projectiles were enough to cause some very faint snowing effects during the Legion fight.
