Do you see that? That's a drill mount. This is the coolest thing I've seen so far coming up in 1.3

Recently the developers at Relogic have been dropping some hints at what we can expect from 1.3. Check out the full post here

I really loved this Plantera fan art by Reddit user VladBacescu. Plantera is a pretty menacing boss for anyone and taking it on in this version of the world.... Uh. Yeah.

Beautiful, but frightening.

Today one of the developers of Terraria tweeted the above image and the following text:

"So I guess this is happening..."

Hot on the heels of news of a Mac port and achievements this next Terraria update may very well be the biggest updates to hit the game.

Cenx, the Creative Director of Terraria just posted a teaser of a few new updates that may come to the game. They are working hard on new content to the game as well as Steam achievements and a Mac port.

"Again, there is always a chance for disaster. We are not promising or guaranteeing that we will release this. It is our intentions to do so but we will not release it unless it plays how it should."

Whereas it's not final and they might not ship the port at all, it's a good sign that they are working on it. Hopefully this paves the way for a SteamOS/Linux port which would pretty much be some of the most amazing news of the year.

This is going to be a terrible night.

The townsfolk stave off an eyeball invasion in the first episode of Terraria: The Animated Series, a fan project that isn't affiliated with Re-Logic but made by people who obviously love the game.

I was pretty impressed with the animation and humor of this. Especially the skeleton. I wish the arms dealer had been around, though, and I'm surprised the guide wasn't there just to die immediately.

"As many of you know we decided to pull several of the mechanics and features from the Lunar Update and do them in a smaller update to minimize the wait for a patch. Now that this is out of the way we will be putting our full attention on the Lunar. Lazure has already been hard at work creating assets for the event and Crowno has a pretty awesome idea for the final boss of the event."

From the top of the feature list:

"You can now get quests from the Angler NPC for cool rewards. Each time you complete a quest, the rewards progressively get better.
You can now use critters as bait for fishing.
You can now ride around in style on the new Minecart system.
Beaches no longer... Read All


If I would have heard about the addition of Minecarts to Terraria I might not have thought it was a good idea... Until I saw the 1.2.4 preview video. This update should make travel around large Terraria worlds really easy.

Hopefully this will be available from the starting tier! Love the game still gets these great updates for free! 1.2 has added so much and things just keep getting better.

I'm not sure why, but before (in 1.2) I couldn't get Steam to capture a screenshot, so I windowed my game and used the Snipping Tool. Now it works and I thought I'd share my place, since Travis asked long ago. Feel free to notice my character. I found a Familiar Wig, Shirt, and Pants while exploring CGWorld3 and thought I'd equip them. These are the first vanity items I've used. The set makes my character look much more like him without armor. I don't know if that's a coincidence that the color of these items is either what my character has (without armor) or close. I've also experimented again with embedding the screenshot. I think it will work this time (if not I'll... Read All

I haven't had much time to process the entirety of the 1.2.3 update but at first blush, it looks like the game just got Nerfed. I don't mind adding more progressing or making things a little less easy to get, but some of the changes in this patch hit me "in the feels."

Here are a few changes that I am not entirely in love with:

* Chlorophyte is slightly more rare and grows slower.
* Golden shower debuff time was reduced to 10 seconds..
* Golden shower now only penetrates 5 targets.
* Golden Shower now does slightly less damage.
* Lowered the damage of Chlorophyte Bullets.

Some changes I like:

* Plantera bulb's don't spawn until all 3 mech bosses are defeated.
* You cannot... Read All

With Spectre Armor and Fairy Wings, my character now looks like a Cheerful Ghost. I decided to give magic a try. It took a little bit of getting used to and figuring out, but Spectre Armor along with a good wand (I have a nice Spectre Staff) make some fun. I'm not sure I can remember ever crafting a suit of armor that didn't have better defense than the one I was wearing at the time, except this time. So, I was concerned about losing a lot of defense, but it turns out that the magic can be quite helpful. Spectre Armor (http://terraria.gamepedia.com/Spectre_Armor) has a very nice set bonus of healing whenever magic damage is done. That means, I get to heal every time I... Read All
