I accidentally removed something from the main page, more accurately this line:
  • The final tier of weapons and armor, which can only be crafted with components dropped only by the final bosses.
I did that because it was outdated. There is no final boss, and the final tier doesn't really exist. This was going to be put in the edit reason but I accidentally pressed the enter button too quickly.

If it happens again you can always hit the edit button again to add the reason with out editing anything else.

Thank you for telling it!

None of the mentioned examples are bonus dungeons or extra levels so much as they are already part of the game and the difficulty of their enemies is balanced out based on gear progression. Going into hardmode introduces a slew of stronger enemies.

The dungeon itself MIGHT qualify as it is the only area you don't have to go into, to access the rest of the game progression wise, and can't be accessed until you defeat Skeletron.

  • Bonus Dungeon:
    • Either the Underground Jungle or the actual Dungeon could qualify for this, the latter because, well, it's a dungeon, and the former because the monsters there are so much more powerful than anywhere else in the game. However, once Hard Mode kicks in, pretty much the entire world becomes this. Including aboveground.
    • This gets reversed in Hardmode. The Dungeon and the Underworld are the only places that don't get new enemies, meaning they become the safest places to be on a Hardmode map.
      • Double Subverted in 1.2, In hardmode, The Jungle becomes one of the hardest places to survive, and god help you if you accidentally break the Pink Bulb that summons the new boss, Plantera. Triple Subverted with the Solar Eclipse, which makes the above ground swarming with high end monsters with Hp ranging from 250 to 1000.
      • In 1.2, the Dungeon also gets new mobs such as the Boss in Mook Clothing Paladin among other harder and annoying mobs, making it an almost literal Bonus Dungeon.
      • The only new thing in the 1.2 hardmode Underworld is the Boss in Mook Clothing Red Devil.

In the latest version of terraria the snow biomes now spawn naturally as part of world gen instead of just on christmas. It is unknown if anything else has changed in regards to christmas events as previously listed. Any additional info would be appreciated.

  • Christmas Mode:
    • During the holidays, the snow biome will generate in all new maps (normally 1/3 chance) and all monsters have a chance to drop presents. When the presents are opened in the player's inventory, they give the player candy cane themed building material. If on a hard mode map there is a chance of the presents dropping a snow globe.
    • If you use the snow globe, you call forth the snowman army, an EXTREMELY hard wave of living snowmen who wield Tommy guns and break down your house. Very difficult to beat, but if you do so you get Santa Claus as an NPC!

The page is in need of both updating and general maintenance. Feel free to pitch in or change things on your own.


I haven't looked since I last played but is this still true?

Wouldn't this entry fit better under Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?? Bad Ass Santa can probably go back as is.

  • Badass: The player character, considering she or he can put freakin ELDRITCH ABOMINATIONS on farm status.
    • Badass Santa: The Christmas event occurs yearly and allows the player to buy a Santa suit for about 45 gold.

Does anyone else think that the main page should have a new picture. The picture is pretty dated as it was pre-release footage. The Terraria logo and font could be atleast a better choice.

I think the logo on it's own may fail to convey the atmosphere of the game. A new image is needed, though.

We could use someone sitting down with the Terraria Official wiki as well as testing somethings to update the page.

You know, I may play this instead of Minecraft. For some reason, I like the looks of it more than I like the looks of Minecraft. It looks a bit more...digestible and accessible.

There's something about Minecraft that looks and feels a overwhelming somehow, even though It's great the freedom it gives to the players. Maybe I just don't have the imagination for it or something. Maybe I like 2D more.

Who else is gonna choose this over Minecraft?

Why pick one? They're both very cheap for the amount of content by today;s standard. Pick one, play it, and buy/trial the other when you have the spare change.
06:43:21 PM Jul 3rd 2011
I have both. I like terraria more. Not only is it more fun, inventive, action oriented, the creators quite very active with their is very stable.

I can't say the same for minecraft outside of the modding community on inventive. The fun wears off quickly unless your on a server and the game has so many stability and bug issues it is not even funny.

I DO have 30 dollars, so I may get both.

I hate that Terraria is on Steam. I ALWAYS have trouble using steam on my computer.
07:20:08 PM Jul 3rd 2011
Steam is pretty much the only downside to Terraria.
07:45:23 AM May 12th 2013
I play both, and I must say I can't decide which is better. They both have different play experiences that I enjoy.

Folks please check the YMMV page before adding entries like God Damn Bats or other YMMV based tropes.

This is about 5th time a YMMV entry has had to be moved off of the main page of the work.

How is the GDB entry a YMMV item?!

Because it is based on opinions and reactions of various individuals.

More importantly it is part of the YMMV tropes list.
