Create World prompt

By default, world mode is set to Classic when creating new worlds.

"Your Adventure Begins..."

Classic Mode ( Normal Mode) is an option that can be selected upon creation of new Worlds / the only available World mode. As its name suggests, Classic Mode worlds offer Terraria's "normal" gameplay experience which existed prior to the introduction of other world modes. As such, Classic Mode worlds do not feature the "creator" freedom of Journey Mode worlds, but nor are they as challenging as Expert Mode or Master Mode worlds.

While the world content of Classic Mode worlds is pretty basic but in general mirrors that of the other worlds modes, it does not hold any Expert-exclusive items nor Master-exclusive items items. There is no Classic Mode exclusive content.

Please see the Journey Mode, Expert Mode and Master Mode articles for miscellaneous differences between Classic and other world modes, as Classic Mode is always used as a reference point.
