Terraria FAQ Guide

By   /   5 years ago


Terraria is an action adventure game in which you explore, build and discover around the world. On your way through the game, you enhance your character’s strength by different equipments and increase your health.

You can increase your Health and Mana by collecting the required required crystals for increasing the health and the Mana. The health can be increased by collecting the large crystallized hearts. They are mostly found in the underground caves. Mana requires mana crystals which are made by combining falling stars. 10 stars make a single mana crystal.

Your characters are saved for every world, you can use the same character in any world but you can’t use the saved items of one world into another world because the items saved in a chest of a world will only belong to that world.

Terraria supports multiplayer but it is somewhat similar to the single-player. All of the players join a single world and everybody uses his own saved character from the singleplayer to play with. So if you will lose anything in the multiplayer, it will be lost in the singleplayer too.

Following are the interesting tidbits you should know as you start the game. The aim of this guide is to get you started with the basics of the game.

Every year is a fresh start for the two giant console platforms who are constantly looking to...

Getting Started

First of all make sure you gather a lot of wood and make yourself a shelter.

  • Make a workbench
  • Explore the world
  • For creating torches kill slimes and grab their gels
  • Create a hammer and a sword (wooden)
  • Start collecting the different resources (ores) – Iron for anvil

How to Destroy The Walls
You can create explosives or a hammer to destroy the walls behind, which are used to stop enemies from spawning over there.

How To Place a Door
Doors are only placed in appropriate holes. The hole must be a three-tile high to place it in.

Expand Crafting Abilities
You can go to the crafting stations as they allow you to create better items.

How to Change the Spawn Point
Yes, the spawn points can be changed. You must make the desired bed by collecting cowebs and then turning them into silk. Then you can use the wood and the silk to make a bed. The bed can be used to relocate your spawn

Chests – Either Make Them or Buy Them
You can store your items in the chests – You can either make these chests by wood or Iron OR you can buy a Piggy Bank from the merchants.

How to Restore Health
Mushrooms can be used to restore the health. They are mostly found in the greenery.

Bottles for Potions and Alchemy Station – Workbench
You can make the glass bottles by smelting the sand on a furnace to form the glass. You can further smelt the glass to make bottles.

Night Time – Collect Falling Stars
Night? Falling stars will start falling – catch them all as they help in increasing MANA. Zombies and Demon eyes will also spawn though.

Blood Moon – How to Survive
Consider it the rage of Zombies and Demon Eyes, their spawning number is heavily increased and they are pretty much powerful now.

Died ? No Problem
You lose your money…almost half of it. You can collect it from the death beds unless it has not fallen somewhere stupid so try to keep your money in your safe houses.

Types of Equipment
You can equip five items; they help in different ways like there are helmets and leggings as your armor. Decreasing order of importance:

  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Demonite
  • Meteor
  • Hellstone

How to Get a Grappling Hook
There are two ways, you can either kill the skeletons (underground) but it totally depends on your luck because they don’t drop it every time OR you can create one by crafting chains from the Iron bars and combine them together to make a hook.

Explore The World

Forests
Forests are where you can find the mushrooms, trees, sunflowers and the slimes. These are your essential needs.

Deserts Like Areas
These are the deserts and not useful at all. Sand is all what you can get from them.

Purple Grass Area – Corruption
Corruption it is. Just try to avoid it as much as possible.

Dungeon – Giant Building With Colored Bricks
This is known as the dungeon, every world has its own and you can’t enter it unless you have defeated the Skeletron.

Pots
They spawn randomly; you can break them to get different stuff such as money, health ammo.

Earth Layer – Brown
You are now in the dirt-layer. It is not dangerous as few Red and Yellow Slimes are present here.

Earth Layer – Grey Stone
You are now in the stone layer. This a bit more dangerous than the first layer. Skeletons and Black, mother slimes spawn here.

Earth Layer – Lava
Well, you’re in the final and the most dangerous layer. You’ll find fire-balls and skeletal bone serpents’ as well. It has lots of gold too but when you come down here make sure you know how to survive.
