Blocks

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
A sample of the blocks present in 1.2.3, laid in 3x3 squares. Click for more info.

The environments of Terraria are mostly made up of blocks such as dirt and stone.

As of 1.2, All blocks can be collected with a Pickaxe or Drill (Drills are not available until world enters Hardmode). Rare blocks may require higher-grade Tools to mine. Blocks can also be transformed into bottom half-blocks and 45 Degree Right angled triangles (from bottom left corner of tile to bottom right corner, and the other block from top left corner to bottom right corner) with a Hammer.

The only blocks that can't be mined with a Pickaxe or Drill are any blocks with a Tree, Chest or Demon Altar/Crimson Altar on top, which need to be harvested using an Axe for the tree, Pickaxe or Drill for the Chest, and Pwnhammer, Drax, or The Axe for the altar first. Additionally, every Block with any kind of Grass growing on it can not be mined but instead the Grass on the block will be destroyed and only the Dirt or the Mud it grew on remains.

The Tools listed below are the minimum required tools for harvesting the specified block. Incomplete as of 1.2.1.

[edit] Gems

[edit] Bricks

Bricks are a sub-type of placeable blocks that can be used to build a house or to craft background walls. Pink, blue and green bricks cannot be crafted and are mined from the Dungeon instead. Lihzahrd Bricks can only be mined from the Jungle temple with a Picksaw. Bricks can be recovered with a pickaxe once placed.

[edit] Bugs

  • Shooting a projectile into a right angled block may cause the projectile to behave unexpectedly, such as a Meteor Shot not ricocheting or a shot from a Diamond Staff going through the wall. Projectiles shot through stacked half-blocks work as expected, moving past any opening in the block texture if it can fit.
  • If you throw a big enough item outside of your inventory, and you are near a 1 block wall, the item will go through the block wall.
