Bald Zombie

On the main page it says that Bald Zombie is a hardmode enemy. It's not, someone change that. -- 20:35, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Fixed. iLiaWneK (block) 10:26, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Latest version

Current game version is, but the "Latest version is 1.2" link at the top of the page wasn't. Also, even though the link says 1.2, it actually links to the 1.1.2 thread on the forum. Blue 3 Oct 2013

New Section

Hi. I was thinking that the main main page, has lots of text. The suggestion I have is that if you could create a section called "Featured Article", "Article of the Day" or "Featured Enemy." What do think about it? (I hope you have understood the idea :S) --ZebaX 23:51, 3 February 2012 (UTC)

Russian wiki

On the Russian wiki does not work the video, but instead sign <embedvideo-embed-clause>.

Hallowed Gear

The Hallowed Gear category link sends you to the page "The hallow" --Aidoboy 23:31, 12 February 2012 (UTC)

Terraria has been discontinued and adding Mods

So as I don't see much in the way of info on this, I thought it would be a good time to talk about it, and what it could mean for the wiki.

Yesterday afternoon (February 21st, 1:05 PST) Redigit (Also know as Red) stated that the game, in it's current state, is finished. There will be at least one more bug fix in the future, and there are plenty of rumors circulating around about it's next move as a game.

I do, however, feel the wiki is not complete yet. I would like to rewrite more of the guides to give this game it's proper respect it deserves, regardless of it's future. It's still a wonderful game, and even without a single additional update, it can hold it's own.

I also think we may need to seriously consider adding a mods section to the wiki as it looks like modifications will be what drives this game forward.

So, an idea:

First, we keep the main part of the wiki separate from the mods. Changes done via the mods should never be considered "part of the game" in the sense that if we add every mod that changes the Slimes page it would be horrible.
We open a new space on the wiki for people to add mods. So something like "[[Mod:Ragen's Example]]" and allow this section of the wiki to be created as mods are available. Heck, it could even tie in with the current Curse map site.
Finally, we prevent mod advertisement. Unless there would be a mod guide made (which isn't a bad idea), any links to the mods section would need to be the entire section itself, not any individual mod.

I'm also hesitant that the wiki itself will still be maintained, but until that moment in which it's announced that the wiki is no longer supported, I want to still make this game as valuable as it was before the announcement. I'm hoping most of you feel the same way as well. --Ragen 22:04, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

The wiki will remain as long as people need it (as long as the game is live on servers). The business of the wiki, to document the game will continue. You don't need permission to rewrite guides, or do anything else that will make the wiki better. The possibility of creating a Mods namespace is always open, though I'd like to see how the rest of things play out before making any decision. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 04:07, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah I had hoped it would stay, but I did not know if Curse professionally maintained the wiki at Relogic's expense, so I did not assume =P. How long shall we wait before changing stuff? I am desperately hoping that someone else would pick up the game. Though, considering that the game itself is still on Steam, and being sold, the entire process of transferring development seems like a giant, unworthwhile task.--Ragen 07:16, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Things should change as they become pertinent to players in the game. The announcement was just yesterday, I don't see the actual game changing dramatically overnight. I don't believe Relogic has determined whether or not to release the dev tools to either the fan base (for supported modding) or to additional developers. -- Wynthyst Curseicon.png talk 07:21, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
Fair enough.--Ragen 07:24, 23 February 2012 (UTC)

Other stuff

I always loved the stories on Terraria Online. Perhaps we could make a section about each story, with a little description and stuff? I think it would be really cool, plus it would give people the chance to check out all the cool stories without trawling the internet for hours trying to find it. No, that does not mean you get more Cheerios. WL. 18:50, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

Try using the forums for that. --Icke 19:30, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
But what about the Terraria stories on FanFiction.Net? I feel that some of them deserve recognition. And what can be a better way to get recognition than to show them on the official Terraria Wiki? No, that does not mean you get more Cheerios. WL. 19:28, 11 March 2012 (UTC)
I mean, one of the best(and longest) Terraria stories ever, Terraria Chronicles, is on FF.Net. It really deserves a page on the wiki, IMO. 07:47, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Have you seen the new bug for Demon Eyes? You should check it out! --Us

Allowing NPCs moving up/down the wood platform with help of blocks (simulate stairs)


I have found out a way to make NPCs run up/down "stairs", see the picture above. Since NPCs do this unintentionally, they will sometime waste a lot of time getting to where they should be by chance, but well, at least we can build skycrapers which allow NPCs to come down and go back up now.

I don't know how to post it to the wiki page properly, so I will just drop it here.

If you want to make feature request you should try finding some modders on the forum. --Icke 09:58, 17 March 2012 (UTC)

Outdated Strategies

Is it ok to remove outdated references (such as this and this), or are they intentionally preserved for those who haven't upgraded to the current version? --Sinister Stairs 14:49, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Feel free to prune outdated information. Articles should reflect the status quo. Keeping things like this around for users who haven't updated doesn't really make sense, at least to me. I don't know who would choose to intentionally not update, and the majority of these people have probably pirated the game. --Lunboks 15:02, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Please, add the Spanish wiki Main Page



Night's Edge Trivia Section

I tend to correct spelling and grammar on these wikis but I can certainly use some help with this particular correction. Within the "Trivia" section, the word "outdamage" is used. This is not a word and is somewhat ambiguous because one cannot decipher if it means damage per second or per swing. Does anyone know what "The Night's Edge can outdamage both a Cobalt and a Mythril sword." means? Perhaps the correction should be made by the author, but I am afraid I do not know how to research that piece of information. -- Yardwork88 00:40, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

I guess the author meant more damage per second. --Icke 06:29, 8 May 2012 (UTC)
I agree with you. Allow me to wait and see what others think before I make the minor edit. -- Yardwork88 16:12, 8 May 2012 (UTC)
I will make the change. Seems there is little activity by the community. Yardwork88 17:10, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

A change to the main Page

On the main page it just says "Hornet". I belive that it should contain Big Stinger, Hornet and little stinger.
