Content[edit source]

Since we don't have much content yet, the references are fine. They will help editors understand that this is an actual planned enemy, and not flag it for deletion. Once the update is released, we will decide which references should stay. It is kind of funny :) You never know where inspiration will come from! – Ferretwings (talk) 01:58, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Just a Question, since when do we add content to the wiki which is not in the game (yet)? I do not have anything against it, but it feels inconsistent. Might be wrong though. Flisch42 (talk) 15:48, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
I personally would never add an item/NPC until it was officially released. An item/NPC isn't officially part of the game until then, and could be axed at any point during development. We may need a couple more admins to weigh in on the matter. – Ferretwings (talk) 16:37, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
I think this in a class similar to that of the unobtainable items, for they are not available in ordinary gameplay and therefore need developer verification, but on the forums, it said it is "only" a teaser, so may not be implemented or become introduced but unobtainable, or even be made available in everyday gameplay. But who knows? Maybe someone could check with Cenx or Loki about the Sand Shark. But to me the enemy looks cool and has a very ninja-like style of attacking.

Placeholder Sprite?[edit source]

I have attempted to retrieve a sprite image of the Sand Shark from the teaser gif (by taking 6 images of one of the Shark's animation frames, rotating them so that they're facing the same direction, and blending them together).

I've attached 3 versions, one with the background intact, one with the background cut out, and one that's been pixelated and given minor adjustments to try and make it as close to the intended sprite as I could.

Would any of these be suitable somewhere on the page, as a placeholder until the real sprite is ripped or otherwise? Or is this not acceptable, even as a placeholder, seeing as it isn't 'official' Terraria content?

That's actually pretty cool, I have no problem with it, just so long as it's replaced when 1.3.3 comes out. 4e696e6a6f795844 (talk) 20:40, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
Done. "Sand Shark.png" is now the third placeholder image.
Just as a heads up for me, would it be okay for me to edit or update "Sand Shark.png" with adjustments (such as upping the contrast to make the colors more accurate and similar to the Basilisk, as it seems to share the same color scheme) up until the official sprite is released? Or would that, again, not be acceptable for any reason?

Images[edit source]

Could someone please upload an image of the Sand Shark's banner please? If unavailable then nevermind. LordofEditing (talk) 22:18, 28 August 2016 (UTC)

Expert mode HP[edit source]

Do biome sharks have more hp in Expert mode too ? Because this is only write for the Sand Shark. --Dinoxel talk 20:48, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
