Steam Trading Cards
Steam Trading Cards were added to Terraria on 7/15/2013, shortly before the 1.2 update. These cards will automatically be awarded while playing the game, assuming the player bought the Steam version of the game. Players will receive up to four cards while playing. After that, it is possible to obtain more cards from booster packs, which are randomly given or by buying them from other players. There is also the special Foil variant, which are rarer, but have no other benefit.
Steam Trading Cards can be used to craft badges (and Foil badges), which show on the player's Steam profile and increase their Steam level. The player can also craft emoticons which can be used in Steam chat. Last of all they can be used to craft backgrounds, which the player can display on their profile. The player can also directly trade the crafted items.
Trading Cards[edit | edit source]
There are a total of nine trading cards:
|1||Minishark||Half shark, half gun, completely awesome.|
|2||The Guide||He thought it would be funny to open the door and let zombies in. You thought it would be funny to sacrifice him to the god of eternal nightmares.|
|3||Eye of Cthulhu||Cthulhu has more danger in his eyeball than most monsters have in their whole body. You've never seen Cthulhu, but Cthulhu has certainly seen you.|
|4||The Hallow||A magical place of fairy tales, rainbows, and killer unicorns!|
|5||The Underworld||Ah, sulfur and brimstone. The smells of molten glory.|
|6||Night's Edge||A blade forged with corrupt intentions.|
|7||Glowing Mushrooms||Glowing mushrooms are rarely seen growing on the surface. When they do it can be described as permanent night.|
|8||Living Wood||Sometimes, a tree just keeps growing.|
|9||Wyvern||The reason your flying city is a ghost town.|
Badges[edit | edit source]
There are five levels of badges. Each time the player crafts it, the level will increase by one. There is also a Foil badge, which can only be obtained by using Foil Trading Cards.
|3||Blade of Grass|
|Foil||True Night's Edge|
Booster Pack[edit | edit source]
When opening the booster pack, the player receives three random cards.
Emoticons[edit | edit source]
Emoticons can be crafted with Trading Cards and can be used by typing the name in the chat.
|:terraria:||Common||The iconic image for that one game...what's it called?|
|:zombiehead:||Common||They serve as a good reminder to keep the doors closed at night.|
|:demoneye:||Uncommon||This Demon Eye is the best way to let your friends subtly know when you are creeping on them.|
|:greenslime:||Uncommon||The weakest member of the slime family, it's flammable, sticky, and very tasty!|
|:dirtblock:||Rare||The dirtiest block of all! They make up the majority of the world (and your inventory).|
Profile Backgrounds[edit | edit source]
There are five different backgrounds, which can be crafted with Trading Cards.
|Overworld||Common||Deadly cliffs and murderous slimes make for the start of a peaceful day for the average Terrarian.|
|The Corruption||Common||You don't know where it came from, but it won't stop spreading. That unearthly color...|
|Ice Caves||Uncommon||Keeps your background cooler than an Ice Slime in a snow cave.|
|Underground Jungle||Uncommon||Welcome to jungle, we got vines and bees.|
|The Crimson||Rare||You have one point two reasons to care about this picture.|
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The description of the Underground Jungle profile background is a reference to the song Welcome to the Jungle by the rock band Guns N' Roses.
- The description of the Crimson profile background references the version that the Biome was first introduced.
