Wood Starting: Making a House, Setting and others[edit | edit source]

Tree Introduction[edit | edit source]

  • Welcome to the world of Terraria where every kind of monsters lurk.
  • Terraria contains 2,000+ items and 150+ enemies yet to be discovered. At the world of Terraria, you have to chop down Trees, Kill enemies and Survive the game.

Eye of Cthulhu Trophy Starting the game[edit | edit source]

  • Terraria's most needed function is the creation of your Character and your World, to create a Character. Click Single Player or Multiplayer then select Create New Character to generate your character. You can customized your character by selecting its gender and wears. You can also choose its difficulty. Easycore, Mediumcore, and Hardcore are the choices but I recommend Easycore instead. After that you can click Generate to create your Character.
  • To create a world, click Single Player or Multiplayer, after that. Select your Character to play. Click Create New World to generate a new world. By the power of Terraria's world generation, you can select which options to create your world. You can choose Small, Medium, or Large to choose the size of your world. You can also choose the difficulty of the world, it is Normal Mode and Expert Mode. Normal Mode is easier and more effective for a start. You can also choose World Evil which is Corruption and Crimson or Random. Seeds also exist in the game.

Guide Starting your gameplay[edit | edit source]

Biome
The Forest
BiomeBannerForest.png

Upon world generation, you will spawn in The Forest biome. Or sometimes in the Snow biome. The Forest biome gives you a fresh start, it contains the following enemies :

Drops
  • For a luxurious start. Start chopping down some Trees using the Copper Axe from your Inventory. You will get Wood from chopping down trees and will allow you to craft the Workbench with 10 wood. Press and hold the Right Button of your mouse to chop down a tree.
    • Making a House is also very impotant. A basic house has a height of 6 blocks and a width of 9 blocks. The furniture is also needed, a table and a chair will be enough. Background walls are also needed, and a torch will be the light source. Here is what an average house looks like:
An average House.
  • To make a Torch, you will have to go kill a Slime for it drop a Gel. Combine wood and gel to make a Torch at the Workbench. The rest are crafted with wood at the Workbench.

Wooden SwordWork Bench Basic Crafting with Crafting Stations[edit | edit source]

  • To craft your first Weapon, you should craft a Wooden Bow for a start using 10 wood at the Work Bench. Make Wooden arrows for your starting ammunition using a wood and a Stone Block at the Work Bench.
Biome
Underground
BiomeBannerUnderground.png
  • The Underground is a Biome that contains chests, that contains important loots. Magic Mirror is one of them. Using the Magic Mirror recalls you to your spawn point and can be reused infinitely.
    • As the game progresses, you would want to go Underground for some Ores. Mine any type of ores using your Copper Pickaxe inside the Underground. Craft a Furnace using 20 Stone Blocks, 4 Woods, and 3 Torches at the Workbench. The Furnace is a crafting station used to smelt ores into Bars
    • With enough ores mined, you can smelt your ores into bars at the Furnace. The most important bar you should consider smelting is the Lead Bar or Iron Bar, as you will have to craft a Lead Anvil or Iron Anvil using 5 Lead Bars or Iron Bars at the Workbench. Lead ores and Iron ores may not exist into both worlds, but overall Lead is better than Iron.
    • The Anvil will allow you to craft weapons and other equipments using pre-hardmode bars and other materials. The main thing you should craft is a Bow ( with any Bars ) and an Armor ( with any Bars ).

Suspicious Looking Eye Crafting your first Boss-Summoning Item[edit | edit source]

  • With your 6 Lenses you can craft the Suspicious Looking Eye at an altar. The Suspicious Looking Eye is a consumable boss-summoning item that is only used at night which summons the boss Eye of CthulhuEye of Cthulhu

Time/Biome
Night
BiomeBannerNight.png

The Night appears in 6:30 PM after sunset. In Night, more powerful enemies will spawn and will attempt to kill you.

Drops
  • This is the part where you fight your first boss. You can either fight King SlimeKing Slime or the Eye of Cthulhu. Most players do not need an arena for the King Slime. Building a rope 20+ tiles high is high enough for the King Slime not to reach you.
    • A Gold armor or Platinum armor set is recommended for your boss fight as it is the strongest armor in this point of the game. A Gold Bow or a Platinum Bow which are all crafted with Gold Bars or Platinum Bars.
    • Your accesories should be Hermes Boots and Cloud in a Bottle which are both found in Chests Underground, and also the Aglet which is found in Chests in the Surface. They are extremely helpful for your fight with the Eye of Cthulhu.
    • The utter purpose of those accessories to help you dodge. Hermes Boots boosts your movement speed thoroughly. The Cloud in a Bottle gives you the ability to double jump which is helpful for dodging the Eye of Cthulhu when going near you. Aglet is also a movement speed boost accessory that can slightly help you at the battle.
    • The recommended potions are Lesser Healing Potions, which is easily found by breaking Pots and Chests around the world. The Archery Potion, The Archery Potion increases arrow damage and speed by 20%. It is crafted using a Bottled Water, Daybloom and a Lens in an Alchemy Table or a Bottle placed on a Workbench.
  • The arrows used for this fight are Jester's Arrows.
    • The Jester's Arrow is easily crafted at the Workbench using 20 wooden arrows and a Fallen Star which is found in night.

Vilethorn Finding the Corruption or Crimson[edit | edit source]

  • The Eye Of Cthulhu will drop multiple Demonite Ores or Crimtane Ores ( And maybe even a Trophy, if you're lucky. )

Biome
The Crimson

The Crimson is a bloody, gory, and menacing biome with an unsettling music. This biome is pretty much more powerful than The Corruption.

For more information, see Guide:Surviving in the Crimson
Drops
  • The Corruption and The Crimson are considered the twin evil biomes. Like iron and lead, Corruption and Crimson caves can't naturally generate in the same world. They appear upon world generation. Corruption is identified when the background turns purple, while Crimson is identified when the background turns gory red.
    • It is recommended to obtain Bombs or the Reaver Shark for getting to any orbs or hearts. The Reaver Shark is a pickaxe rarely obtained from Fishing in the Ocean. It has a mining power of 100% and will allow you to mine through Ebonstone or Crimstone. Those only require 65% pickaxe power to be mined.
    • Also, make sure to bring a Hammer so that you can smash the Shadow Orbs or Crimson Hearts.

  • In the Corruption and Crimson, there lies an ultimate evil that you will have to defeat. You have to smash 3 Shadow Orbs or Crimson Hearts in order to summon them. The Eater of WorldsEater of Worlds and The Brain of CthulhuBrain of Cthulhu. Both are bosses from the Corruption / Crimson.
    • Fighting the Eater of Worlds or Brain of Cthulhu is actually pretty easy. You need your Demon Bow or the Tendon Bow, Minishark ( if needed ). The Minishark is a powerful early-game gun bought from the Arms Dealer for 35 Gold Coin.
  • The Shadow Orb or Crimson Heart has a chance to drop the Musket / The Undertaker, together with some Musket Balls as the ammunition. They are both are guns helpful to defeat the Eater of Worlds and Brain of Cthulhu.

Unholy Arrow Strategies[edit | edit source]

  • The Eater of Worlds is a Burrowing Enemy that is spawned by destroying 3 Shadow Orbs in the Underground Corruption or by using the Worm Food. Fighting it without an arena is very tough since the Underground Corruption has a small space. It has many segments, when one of its body is destroyed, it will split into half and will repeat. The Head and The Tail is the Eater of Worlds' weakness since it doesn't let it split, each segment of the Eater of Worlds has its own health and attacks.
  • The Brain of Cthulhu is a boss spawned by destroying 3 Crimson Hearts at the Underground Crimson biome, or by using a Bloody Spine. It has two phases. When summoned, it will start out as an invincible host while its servants will try to attack you. Brain of Cthulhu has the ability to teleport near the player. A flat arena is very mch needed for this battle. Aftwr killing all its servants, it will enter its second phase which will allow him to be vincible. The reason why the Brain of Cthulhu is more weaker than the Eater of Worlds is because of its health which is 2,000 only. The Brain of Cthulhu's second phase is very easy to fight off.
    • The Eater of Worlds will drop multiple Shadow Scales, while the Brain of Cthulhu drops multiple Tissue Samples that allows you to craft the Shadow armor or Crimson armor with Demonite Bars or Crimtane Bars. The Shadow armor is very focused on movement speed and melee speed which is utterly useless for this class. While the Crimson armor focuses on damage and greatly increases life regeneration as its set bonus which is actually, very useful.

Flower Boots Entering the Jungle and finding a Bee Hive[edit | edit source]

Jungle Bat The Jungle biome[edit | edit source]

  • After you have defeated the Eater of Worlds / Brain of Cthulhu. It's time for the The Jungle biome.
Biome
The Jungle
BiomeBannerJungle.png

The Jungle is considered the second hardest Biome in Pre-hardmode. It contains beautiful background and greenery yet it contains very powerful enemies.

Drops
  • As others may suggest, the Jungle is the strongest biome. The Jungle biome contains much more powerful enemies that will challenge you ( or maybe even annoy you ).
    • There you can find wild Ivy Chests in the Underground Jungle and inside those you can obtain the Boomstick.
    • Grinding Hornets is needed to obtain the Bezoar. The Bezoar is an accessory that is dropped by Hornets for a 1% / 2% chance. Wearing it gives you immunity to Poisoned debuff which will help you pass through Hornets while finding your true target.
    • With your trusty Demon Bow or Tendon Bow in hand together with some Jester's arrows or Unholy arrows. You can almost easily kill the rest of the Underground Jungle enemies.
