  • When it comes to Bosses, these 3 are probably the hardest to kill. It's okay if you've died once... or maybe twice. I just want to discuss this for reasons. What boss is more difficult to defeat? Moon Lord, Expert Duke Fishron, or Enraged Plantera? In my opinion, Enraged Plantera is the most difficult.  It deals loads of damage, has lots of damage resistance, and such. Plantera killed me twice when I tried killing him/her (However you classify Plantera's gender.)

      Why expert and enraged? Seems unfair to compare differing difficulty. When it comes to normal difficulty, I'd just say Duke Fishron is the hardest for me. I never really found Plantera hard, most of my problems when I fight him is that I just never bother to clean up the area. I just find the bulb, place a campfire and torches, then take one final look at the area before I fight Plantera.

    • I honestly find Duke Fishron the hardest.

    • To be honest, duke fishron. I died more times to him then enraged plantera. All of my old plantera kills were enraged and I only died twice. I killed duke fishron two out of 20 times. plantera I did atleast 30 enraged and one normal.

      Except the Dungeon Guardian isn't hard, just tedious because of the 1 damage and his high health. But still, since all you need to do is avoid it, you just close your eyes and run away from it while your summons and your fast shooting homing weapons are going after it. Or just make an AFK grinder for it.

    • IMO Fishron is the hardest boss in all of these three. Moon Lord is easy enough with melee&yoyo, plantera is also easy to kill, even with megashark, clockwork assault rifle, or Amarok. But Duke Fishron is hard because he does very high burst damage as well as create hazards that are hard to avoid.

    • The Moon Lord in its final stage is the most difficult!

    • Duke fishron's drops arent endgame so he HAS to be nerfed. I have the best gear you can get in vanilla terraria and couldent beat him after 3 trys, and i used everything possible to buff myself as a melee, including the potions you dont normally use. I used a UFO to kite him but suprisingly dident work. The only time i have ever killed him is with a friend, him being the guy that actually did damage and i would distract him, and worked kinda good since we killed only JUST managed to kill him. They either have to buff the drops or nerf duke fishron.

    • Well it is hard to decide for me cause I am on IOS.

      But with all the videos I have seen, Duke Fishron is the hardest.

    • i would have to say enraged plantara is the hardest. insta-kill and VERY VERY fast. not ever lightning boots on asphalt and a swiftness potion can out-run her.

    • oh and she gets alot of defence!

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, but like. Enraging Plantera doesn't give you anything extra, so why would you bother? Also I did try to fight enraged Plantera once, but I gave up after the first death. Still gotta say that Moon Lord is probably the hardest tho. Fishron is probably more about your set up than the boss himself being difficult

      How so? Do you mean skeltron prime in Expert or just regular skeletron. Assuming you mean the latter, just fight him how you normally would, like molten armour and that sorta tier gear should be good enough

    • I still need to defeat moon lord, but I guess once you've done it, it'll be easy to do it again (cos top-tier loot). Anyone tried using said top-tier loot against enraged plantera and/or expert fishron?

    • Expert Enraged Duke Fishron is easy with a simple minecart track that has power tracks every 7-10 tiles or so. Just use the Mechanical minecart and you go ~100 MPH. As long as the track goes up and down every once and a while you can outrun him pretty easily. With enough DPS you can also burn through his 3rd mode only taking 1-3 hits, which you can tank with health potions. I farmed him more than 10 times in a row like this, smooth sailing the whole way,

    • ^ Who are you quoting?

      I don't believe you can use minecarts for Fishron, he fires tornadoes that would damage you when your minecart runs through them. Minecarts can work for a lot of bosses but I doubt Duke Fishron is one of them.

      Actually you can do enraged Duke on a minecart, I've seen it done. He's pretty fast, and it can get close but its not too difficult.

        Loading editor
    • It's not Duke Fishron that's the problem, it's his tornadoes, you'd be certainly going through them if you stay in a fixed path on a minecart.

        Loading editor
    • Well, the fight I have seen, there wasn't even any tornadoes. Duke just chases while the player zooms ahead on a long minecart track. Its pretty easy from the looks of it, with only a couple dicey moments when he gets really fast at the end.

      I'll link you the video sometime next time we are in chat.

      It seems like if you have a long enough track the 'nadoes will either despawn before you turn around and go back to where they were or Duck just never spawns them because he's always using either his bubble or dash attack. Think of that second possibility like the Corrupt/Crimson/Hallowed Mimics, if you get too far away they will fly straight at you, and the AI will make that attack in that situation havepriority over all the others. So, when you're running away, Duke will always use his higher priority attacks first: thus no tornadoes.

      Hope I was clear!

    • Ok, I get it now. Minecarts are also effective for Duke Fishron, but to be honest, if you are going to use AFK contraptions for the bosses then all of them would be equally easy. :p

    • ^ I dunno whose post you are quoting, yourself? :p

      I've died to Duke Fishron more times than all of the other bosses combined... I often try to fight Duke Fishron as soon as I kill all Mech Bosses, if I fail after trying a dozen times, I move on to Plantera first then try Duke Fishron again after harvesting items from Plantera. If I still can't kill him after trying a dozen more times after Plantera, I farm items from Pumpkin Moon and Frost moon. I often die several dozen times to him. I usually only die like 3-5 times from other bosses.

    • duke fishron is much harder. If your not using any afk contraptions or anything cheaty he is extremely hard. with just a normal arena with asphalt  i couldnt defeat him but i could defeat moon lord with a few platforms. Also u can shred through enraged plantera with a high dps wep and if u keep your distance

        Loading editor
    • You don't really need a high DPS weapon for Plantera, I have managed to kill both Plantera and Moon Lord with a Sniper Rifle using Chlorophyte bullets because they aren't that hard. It's very hard to do that with Duke Fishron because he would kill you faster than you can damage him. Duke Fishron is just the fastest boss in the game, you'd spend most of your time and concentration on running and dodging.

      first time then duke totaly. 

      average planty.

      full preptime -  planty.



      after you get dukes flail he is really easy. just fly way up swinging flail downward, and reverse for falling, and just dodge as you fall and fly up. 

      moon dude railroad speed track with teleporters makes him easy.

      planty all depends on the area of battle.. with health items.

    • Duke Fishron.here are useful tips for all three:

      for duke, i personally used a circle movement with homing weapons (razorblade typhoon, chlorophyte bullets). moon lord is honestly easy, one way to cheese him is too just run down a long bridge using weapons like Chain gun, Solar Eruption, Razorpine, Razorblade typhoon, etc. then just tp back to the beginning where you should have built a small house (put the nurse there). while moon lord is tp-ing, heal, then start-up again. use boots+asphalt or unicorn/scutlix mount.

      never fought enraged plantera before :p, but i think using UFO mount or something with high flight time along with high dmg weapon should make plantera pretty easy.

      feel free to add to this.
