    Request to be added[]

    Hello. I am a long time player of Terraria Desktop, and I have much experience with it. I would love to be added as an editor so I can help update the wiki with new and changed items and features from the 1.4 update. I have already been working on updating the upcoming features with new information, and I would be glad to continue to quickly bring out accurate update information.

    Request to be added[]

    Hi, I'd like to be added to the editors list. I've been helping around the wiki recently creating item pages, copyediting, and reporting vandalism. I play Desktop and have basic familiarity with the source code, so I can pull up information about item functionality, vendor sales, etc without too much trouble. On the wikicode side, I've learned how to use a good number of the standard templates+infoboxes and I'm hoping to pick up more through practice. You can check my contributions page to see where I've helped out, or contact me in the Discord under the same username. Cheers! Breathlessblizzard (talk) 22:38, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    I've added you. Thank you so much for your help :) – Ferretwings (talk) 23:06, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    Request to be added[]

    Hello! I'd like to be added to the editors list. I mostly play mobile, but can readily test pretty much anything on the Console version (latest version, Xbox One), and will sometimes be able to test some Desktop things. I'll hopefully be able to be editing a lot more actively, and am currently working to achieve consistency, especially with the flood of 1.4 articles. Thanks for your consideration! —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 17:57, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

    Request to be added[]

    Hi! I'd like to be added to the editor's list. I have (what I'd like to think) an extensive knowledge of most Terraria Desktop version mechanics, as well as features and content. I've joined pretty recently in order to help with 1.4 content additions, and I helped to start adding happiness quotes for the happiness quotes project to most NPCs, as well as preparing to start the DPS project (to find the average DPS of weapons). Thank you for reading, no hard feelings if I don't make it. DanZeMan (talk) 12:49, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

    Request to be added[]

    Hello, my name is Trialsphere, I am constant player of the game and have over 340 hours on Nintendo Switch. I know the game mechanics well, tend to recognize glitches fairly quickly when they pop up, and know most of the tips or tricks a player might need. I would love to be added as an editor so I can help add information that might have been missed on pages and help the terraria community as much as I can. I thank you for your time and consideration. Trialsphere (talk) 17:41, 12 June 2021 (UTC)

    When you click on the link it takes you back to the home page. Please can someone fix it. This is the link The log in button is broken as well I'm logged in and it demands forme to login again and then it just takes me back to the home page. OrkyEragon (talk) 09:33, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

    terraria 2[]

    Is there a page on what we know about the new terraria that's suppose to come out. If not could we add one. PS I'm pretty new to working on wikis so tell me why if not. LucasFSM2 (talk) 13:30, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

    Yes, there is: Terraria 2. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 15:18, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

    The best wiki I have ever seen[]

    I have not much to say, I just was looking for a place to tell you guys, that this is an absolutely outstanding wiki. It's just insane how much detail is provided. Thank you - so much!

    hello , i have found something interesting including the master ninja gear , but i am not sure how ,why and if it really works , so i would like people to verify it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jokingx (talkcontribs) at 08:30, 25 January 2021‎ (UTC)

    Update plz[]

    ReLogic I ask kindly of you to plz update Xbox360 terraria once or twice so we (most of people with only a Xbox360 terraria) have moon lord items and have a better experience and at least have some of the stuff on the new wiki ,it is hard to find stuff on this wiki., I hope relogic sees this I love your game in this version but moonlord stuff is better.

    ReLogic plz I beg nicely. 01:14, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

    Hello, the developers are very unlikely to read this page. If you want to get in touch with them, your chances are much higher at the forums or on the Terraria Discord. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 01:19, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
    Sorry to say this, but they can’t. The Xbox 360 can’t handle the tremendous power that 1.3 needs, which is why it isn’t going to be updated ever again. Assuming you have a phone or tablet, get it on mobile, it’s cheap and has all 1.3 items, bosses and more. 16:28, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
    P.S. Mobile has 1.4 now too — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 13:53, 24 May 2021 (UTC)

    Acorns and saplings section does not include gem trees[]

    On the tree page, I was scrolling through and saw the acorns and saplings don't include the new gem trees. This was easily noticeable when it stated that trees could not be grown underground and must be grown on grass, snow, or sand. I would fix it myself, but I don't know much about links or anything when it comes to editing things on the wiki (which I'm planning on learning later) and I also don't have much time on my hands.

    Separate Wikis[]

    So a while ago, re-logic stated they hoped to add crossplay between pc, console, and mobile. If this happened, something that would make sense is if that version had a separate wiki to the legacy versions, so the disparities wouldnt confuse anyone. This would also help when future updates happen (seeing how many 'final updates' there have been, its more than likely). So simply, a separate wiki for the crossplay and legacy ones. If that update comes to fruition, that is. ShadowBlade8192 (talk) 19:41, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

    Hi, there isn't much interest in having two distinct wikis for that as the actual one already suffice. Also, it has already been brought that once Desktop, Console, and Mobile will have the same version, several tweaks might occur to "hide" pre- content (Old-gen console and 3DS) on pages, as these versions were terminated, in order to clean the icons excess on the wiki. There hasn't been an in-depth discussion about this right now as it's not topical. Dinoxel (talk) 20:48, 4 April 2021 (UTC)

    Most images gone from their respective pages.[]

    Pretty sure the files still exist, just not on the pages? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jahfield1 (talkcontribs) at 19:37, 8 April 2021‎ (UTC)

    Yep, same for me. At first, I thought it was just a problem on my end, but when I go into the editing history I can see the images. My guess is a major update on the site broke them. Hopefully, it is fixed soon. TessboB (talk) 20:18, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
    Same. Seems to be related to the wiki migrating over to fandom, but it'll hopefully get fixed soon. Biting Chicken (talk) 21:30, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

    I'm trying to find a specific enemy[]

    I played Terraria a long time ago and I found some kind of structure in the world with an old guy outside and I went inside the thing and a skeleton guy killed me scared me to death, i'm trying to find what it is so I can learn how to avoid it if I play again ItsBlueEnglan (talk) 12:57, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

    The structure you encountered is most likely the Dungeon. The Old Man is walking around in front of it. In order to enter safely, you need to talk to him at night and win the following boss fight. Until then, you will always be killed instantly by Dungeon Guardians if you attempt to enter the Dungeon. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 13:47, 18 April 2021 (UTC)

    Terraria bosses and multiplayer, health, loot and drop per person[]

    I looked around and I couldn't find anything about this. I was wondering if there is anything that has to do with terraria bosses and the players in game. For example, what if one person is farther away, would they be counted to boss health increase and given a treasure bag. What if one person summoned and then others joined, would the boss health increase or something? I am going to be looking into that but if anyone knows before I test everything please let me know. <3 — Preceding unsigned comment added by That Duck Guy (talkcontribs) at 15:17, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

    On the Expert Mode page, some mechanics are listed. The boss's health is decided by how many players are currently in the world when first spawned, and treasure bags are given to any player that has damaged the boss at least once. And yes, this does mean you can cheese a fight by having everyone leave and rejoin at the start of a boss battle. --KM100 (talk) 22:21, 12 May 2021 (UTC)


    How do i plant gemcorns? is there a specific area i need to plant them in or something else? please let me know — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 19:58, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

    Gemcorns need to be planted Underground or lower, on stone or moss. Make sure they have enough open space to grow. --KM100 (talk) 22:21, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

    Nintendo Switch issue involving dyes[]

    I've played terraria quite a lot on the switch, and recently I've come across an issue. Dyes aren't working correctly... Some of the dyes that you would get from the dye trader wouldn't work on accessories and none of the dyes worked in the armor/social slots. Instead it would cause the object to have no texture and in the case of the armor slots it would also cause your character's shirt, pants, or hair to disappear from the respective slot (Example: If I used Martian dye on the helmet slot the helmet texture would disappear and I would have no hair.) Can somebody explain to me what is going on and can somebody address the issue?

    Here's a clip of the issue:

    (PS: I posted this here instead of the forums due to the fact I can't access the forums) Trialsphere (talk) 21:36, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

    This is a known issue with the Switch version. It will probably be fixed when it receives the 1.4 update later this year. --Eraloiz (talk) 14:44, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

    sudden game crashes[]

    recently i'm having an issue where in the right ocean biome I am crashing. It happens after going right beyond a point. I have no idea what's causing the game to crash. Can somebody tell me what might be going on? Trialsphere (talk) 01:27, 14 June 2021 (UTC)

    Missing chandelier[]

    You are missing "gold" chandelier — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 16:20, 15 June 2021 (UTC)

    On which page? It's already listed on Chandeliers. --Eraloiz (talk) 12:29, 16 June 2021 (UTC)

    The Walkthrough guides[]

    As i was reading the walkthrough guide, I saw many 1.3 information. Since 1.4 changed the progression a lot, this needs to be updated — Preceding unsigned comment added by Anonymous Legend YT (talkcontribs) at 03:20, 20 June 2021 (UTC)


    There is an enemy in the game but I don't know how to add it. It is called the crystal thresher and can be found in the hallowed desert during a sandstorm. It looks like a crystal sand shark. — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 21:10, 7 July 2021 (UTC)

    Crystal Thresher is already documented on the wiki; see the Sand Sharks page. --Eraloiz (talk) 06:26, 8 July 2021 (UTC)

    an edit to dye wiki page[]

    i made a list of known dye that work on the switch version of terraria and i would like to add it to dye page but i don't know how https://terraria.fandom.com/wiki/Dyes_unaffected_by_the_switch_version# here is the list — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sam 1967 (talkcontribs) at 20:11, 13 August 2021 (UTC)

    I've merged the page with Dyes (see the Trivia section). --Eraloiz (talk) 06:01, 14 August 2021 (UTC)

    Need help on strategies on getting wings in hardmode as soon as it starts?[]

    Hey guys really need help I just need strategies on getting wings early in hardmode because i'm stuck on the mechanical bosses. Also what kind of wings do you guys recommend? — Preceding unsigned comment added by at 02:18, 29 September 2021 (UTC)

    I always go with Fairy Wings because they're better than the Tier 1 wings (Angel, Demon, Leaf) and it's a completely reliable, but tedious, grind. If you get an early blizzard, Frozen Wings are faster. If you don't like fighting wyverns, Leaf wings (weak and expensive) or Fin Wings (stronger but rare) are your only option.Mathbrush1 (talk) 02:59, 29 September 2021 (UTC)

    Bad eicon links everywhere[]

    Now that console is up to 1.4, a ton of eicon links are broken (!!Error: Invalid EICONS input!). Is it okay to go through and remove information that no longer applies to any version of the game? (I'm not talking about 3DS version, more like the really messy armor tables in Melee weapons that have multiple values for bonuses for Tavernkeeps armor and Solar Flare armor).Mathbrush1 (talk) 13:49, 1 October 2021 (UTC)

    Sure, go ahead! Any transclusion like {{eicons||not=}} (or with {{eversions}}) can be deleted along with the information that it's referring to (e.g. Special:Diff/1140778, Special:Diff/1140768, Special:Diff/1140724, Special:Diff/1140621), because no platform is between 1.3 and 1.4 anymore (and won't ever be again). --Rye Greenwood (talk) 14:28, 1 October 2021 (UTC)
    For the record, it has apparently been decided that the wiki should now also include the Nintendo Switch version and the Desktop patch that tModLoader is on in the version differentiation. Both of these are still on, i.e. between 1.3 and 1.4, and therefore all of the {{eicons}} are still/again valid. (Until Switch and tModLoader have upgraded to, that is.) --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:15, 11 October 2021 (UTC)
