    Heya! I'd like to be added to the list of editors. My expertise is PC (mostly) and 3DS (a little). I know a lot about the general flow of the game, and how to advance through it. I've been working on rewriting/cleaning up the guide articles, so I've got something to do. Thanks for considering. Kwonunn (talk) 21:38, 6 November 2018 (UTC)

    Added. Thank you for fixing up the Guides. They have many small errors. – ReedemtheD3ad! (talk) 02:47, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

    Hello! I'd like to be on the editor list as well. My areas are in old-gen console (PS3) and new-gen console (Xbox One). I've gotten to know a lot about update 1.3 ever since I got to play new-gen, and I'm currently working on adding a few missing things in the wiki. However, I'm not yet so good with templates and tables. Thanks! Diamondcat6746 (talk) 21:20, 11 January 2019 (UTC)

    Howdy, i'd like to be added to the editor's list. My main areas that i'd be most helpful in are Xbox one, and mobile. As of right now, I've been working on verifying information as well as adding some trivia I feel could be interesting. However, I do have a little trouble editing sources of items as well as tables.

    Request to be added[edit source]

    Ok so I helped with the Wii U version of the achievements page. I wanna be added because I have iOS (don’t play on it much) and Wii U versions. I don’t just randomly go search for info though. I look at a page with verify, or info contradicting me, or missing info, or people who want specific info about the Wii U version. I’m currently in a mage play through but I am willing to spend some time for this wiki. I am slow progressing on my play through because I like building and specific items, but I can get to Hardmode in about 1-3 hours minimum with a new character and world if needed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Theextroardinary (talkcontribs) at 18:13, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

    Hello. I would like to be added also. I'm best at Mobile, PC, and 3DS ( but not much). I've contributed by adding the Guide: Goblin Army Strategies and fixing the rewrite request for Defense. I've had a lot of experience with the game and have been a supporter since 2017/18. I'm still learning about complex commands like templates, images, and types of pages (such as /cs). I am currently working on rewrite requests and Guides. I like taking my time and collecting items; however, I have managed to get to wave fifteen in a Pumpkin Moon with Local Multiplayer.

    Hello. I am a long time player of Terraria Desktop, and I have much experience with it. I would love to be added as an editor so I can help update the wiki with new and changed items and features from the 1.4 update. I have already been working on updating the upcoming features with new information, and I would be glad to continue to quickly bring out accurate update information.

    Request to be added[edit source]

    Hi, I'd like to be added to the editors list. I've been helping around the wiki recently creating item pages, copyediting, and reporting vandalism. I play Desktop and have basic familiarity with the source code, so I can pull up information about item functionality, vendor sales, etc without too much trouble. On the wikicode side, I've learned how to use a good number of the standard templates+infoboxes and I'm hoping to pick up more through practice. You can check my contributions page to see where I've helped out, or contact me in the Discord under the same username. Cheers! Breathlessblizzard (talk) 22:38, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    Hello! I'd like to be added to the editors list. I mostly play mobile, but can readily test pretty much anything on the Console version (latest version, Xbox One), and will sometimes be able to test some Desktop things. I'll hopefully be able to be editing a lot more actively, and am currently working to achieve consistency, especially with the flood of 1.4 articles.

    The use time on the Tombstone is wrong.[edit source]


    As you can see here, The Tombstone has the wrong usetime. Ont he wiki it's listed as 15 when it's actually 10.—Preceding unsigned comment added by Codangels (talkcontribs) at 21:12, 5 January 2020

    The item statistic useTime is what translates to the tool speed of tools, or, if not applicable, an internal use time. The actual use time, as it is commonly known, and referred to on the wiki, is represented by the useAnimation statistic. (This is not the only case of slightly confusing source code naming.) A good example is the Clockwork Assault Rifle, whose useTime, 4, is one third of its useAnimation, 12, resulting in the effect of three bullets being shot per use (the Golden Shower has a similar effect). See also Use time#Notes, and Module:Iteminfo for an explanation of all statistics. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:37, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

    Already bought the game[edit source]

    I have kind of a weird question. I have Terraria on my Xbox, but I just got a new computer that I want to get Terraria on. If I go to buy it it says I need to pay. Is there a way to just install because I already own it or do I need to rebuy it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 02:54, 17 January 2020 (UTC)

    Blood Moon Rarity[edit source]

    I Don't think the rarity for the blood moon to occur is correct, since I've had 4 blood moons BACK to BACK. :D —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 20:07, 30 January 2020 (UTC)

    Separating information from different versions of the game[edit source]

    The Terraria Wiki is an extremely useful tool for gaining access to accurate information across all versions of Terraria. However, it can be difficult to interpret at times as a result of the version differences, and there are some redundancies. To give a few examples:

    • Terra Blade's sentence "The Terra Blade becomes available after defeating one (Old-gen console version 3DS Version) / all (Desktop Version Console Version Mobile Version) Mechanical Bosses."
    • Palm Wood's version symbols on every craftable item, and itself, despite the version-exclusive page heading.
    • "Spectre Wings" and "Ghost Wings" being listed as separate items in Wings.

    To give an example of how differences are handled on other wikis, see the Splatoon Wiki. Here is a page involving different versions: https://splatoonwiki.org/wiki/Splattershot And a page involving just the newest version: https://splatoonwiki.org/wiki/Splat_Dualies

    As you can see, they use tabs to separate the versions, along with different sections in the article. I believe something similar could be implemented in the Terraria Wiki to make information easier to understand. The majority of Terraria Wiki's users likely play on the latest version of the game (Desktop / Mobile / Console), but for those who play on Old-gen Console / 3DS, there information would still be there.

    I created a sample here: https://imgur.com/a/JQipguu It could likely be optimized to remove some duplicate information, but hopefully the main idea is clear.

    Unknown Easter egg?[edit source]

    So im just sitting here, messing around and getting farther than i ever have before (steam user name Venompool25) and suddenly, as im messing around at the homescreen, having just switched worlds, i click by accident and the screen turns dark, i panic for a second thinking i just did something, then realize the screen isnt moving, i let go it starts moving again, and i quickly click again and it stops, i look where im clicked and its the sun, turns out you can move the sun on the homescreen (I'm excited bc i cant find any information online and it seems to me no one has found this yet) Daddipool69 (talk) 08:05, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

    1.3 Terraria for ps3[edit source]

    So I know your going to judge me for having a ps3. I really want to play 1.3 because I’m stuck with the game being technically beaten once you defeat golem. It doesn’t even feel that good. The golem doesn’t end the game in some cool way which makes we want to get 1.3 more. I try to get a ps4 but I can’t. Can anyone help somehow? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 01:34, 5 April 2020 (UTC)

    Sorry to break it to you but they aren't ever going to release 1.3 for old-gen console due to specification limitations (the consoles can't run the update). As for you wanting to get a PS4 or other device that runs 1.3 Terraria, I can recommend getting it on XBOX 1, PS4 or any desktop computer (Windows/Linux/Mac). However, I can't help you in the way of getting those specifically, I can only recommend that you get a device matching those descriptions (i.e. I cannot advise you on how to obtain any of these, other than looking at the websites). Desktop version also has 1.4, which is going to take some time getting to consoles and mobile (probably a year at the very least). DanZeMan (talk) 12:32, 30 May 2020 (UTC)

    This page is meant for discussion about all facets of the wiki.

    Lore[edit source]

    I just created Lore. It should probably be linked from the main page, although I'm not sure which section. It should also be linked from {{lore}}. Coding here has gotten a bit cryptic so I'm going to leave this to those more familiar with it at the moment. Feel free to suggest and discuss where links to this might belong (as this is content completely external to the game and not affecting gameplay, but still official). Equazcion (talk) 20:38, 12 Apr 2020 (UTC)

    Hmm.. the only section I can see it fitting into on the main page is "mechanics", but it's not really a mechanic is it? I wouldn't consider it a big enough part of the game to be one of the featured pages at the top either. --Eraloiz (talk) 09:36, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

    Recovery potions bug[edit source]

    I don't know if it is a random bug that happened in my world by accident or if it is something usefull, but... It works similar to throwing an object while holding the fishing rod, if you have a potion in hand and open the menu (with the auto pause option activated), if you release an object you will use 1 time the potion you have in hand , even if you have the Potion Sickness debuff, also this will not give you the potion sickness debuff —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 06:52, 13 April 2020 (UTC)

    Updating Russian section template[edit source]

    Good day. I am the administrator of the Russian section of the Terraria Wiki. I was absent from the project for a long time and I noticed that the English section templates became very complex. I know the wiki markup , HTML and CSS quite well and could update templates and articles. But I am completely unaware of LUA and Scribundo. The process of adapting templates for i18n and i10n seemed to me also difficult. Just copying the templates from here did not bring the proper result. Nevertheless, there is one important module on the Russian wiki that allows us to load English names and files in articles about items and creatures: ru:Модуль:Файловое хранилище и ru:Модуль:Файловое хранилище/Данные. I really hope that you can help us. I also invite to this discussion my colleagues: PhysicalIllusion, Sattonru. ← Alex Great talk/rus? 03:31, 18 April 2020 (UTC)

    Hey Alex, glad to see you back! As you already saw, every templates are now automatized and somehow connected to each other. The base templates for the whole thing are "Template:Localization" (and its subpage /register which will allow you to register the Russian l10n on /l10n pages), Template:Tr and the Russian language database that should have been created at Template:Tr/db-ru. I guess the next step is to import/update all the new templates and their subpages in order to create the cargo tables, which are Template:Npc infobox, Template:Item infobox, Template:Image, Template:Item, Template:Recipes, and Template:Exclusive and also every pages from the Data templates (except the non-Russian/English databases obviously) and Modules categories.
    • Template:Npc infobox takes its information from Module:Npcinfo where they are all stored and some of its subpages.
    • Template:Item infobox takes its information from Module:Iteminfo and also from some of its subpages.
    • Template:Item now replaces every item redirect-related templates such as Il2c, Item link, Linked icon... and translates automatically to the corresponding language of the wiki from the translation database (Tr/db-ru) and adds automatically icons from Template:Exclusive.
    • Template:Recipes replaces now both the Crafting recipe and Crafts templates. Every recipe are stored in Recipes/<NAME_OF_CRAFTING_STATION> and are also automatically translated by Tr/db-ru.
    Also, there is no need to add the lang parameter with the L10n template on the Russian wiki because it automatically detects that it has to look for the Russian database. I also advise you to let templates' names in English.
    I hope I was clear enough to guide you through this sorted madness. If you're looking for precise details about Scribunto and Lua, Rye Greenwood and Westgrass might be the people you're looking for, you should come to the Discord to discuss. -- Dinoxel talk 23:13, 18 April 2020 (UTC)
    Thanks for the detailed answer. I will think with colleagues about updating templates. "I also advise you to let templates' names in English." – in many templates we use Russian parameter names (for example, name =название =, image =изображение =… Do we need to leave the parameters in English? ← Alex Great talk/rus? 01:20, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
    Well, I don't think it's possible at the moment to edit the parameter names in another language than English because the three major language Wikis (FR, DE, and ZH) using Template:Tr use English paramaters. I think that was the best solution they found to create the localization templates but I suppose there must be a way to have a default name and its translations as parameters. --Dinoxel talk 01:54, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
    Localization of parameter names would be possible to integrate into the current l10n system. The question is how much it is needed: At the moment, we mostly just copy the template call from the English source code and copy it on the language wiki – no further alteration necessary (at least most of the time), yet completely localized output. If you insist on using Russian parameter names, then I guess we can make that work, although it will be a lot of work, given the number of templates. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 16:10, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

    I'm not sure if this is the place to ask, but I've been getting redirects to a website set up to mimic a "congratulations" page from my ISP.

    UI style of the Official Terraria Wiki[edit source]

    Hi I just had a thought/suggestion, but first if this is the wrong place to post this then can you please show me where?

    I believe that it would be nice to see a more immersive wiki with things that move when you go over them, terraria styled info boxes, possibly a more comfortable and interactive style, just a thought (: 14:18, 20 April 2020 (UTC)

    Best Reforge Stats?[edit source]

    Ok, I haven't done much but I think it was a cool addition to add the image of the stats next to the best reforge of a weapon. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Terrarianuser (talkcontribs) at 18:04, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

    I have a slightly different solution: displaying the stats in a reference tooltip. See the sandbox for an example. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 20:15, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

    Documentation via module[edit source]

    In the Russian wiki for documentation of templates we use Documentation module. It helps to create and standardize documentation for templates. See also Doc template in Russian wiki and Зм / Зм/док template for example. I believe that the English wiki needs such module and it needs to update documentation templates. ← Alex Great talk/rus? 14:40, 25 April 2020 (UTC)

    Old One's Army armor sets[edit source]

    I've been adding more documentation to the Old One's Army weapons, sentries, and armor sets. One thing I've noticed is that, in-game, each armor set says it 'boosts the -whatever sentry- significantly' and provides a special effect like Ballista Panic, Oiled, increased range, etc.

    But the wiki only doesn't mention the 'significant boost', so I wasn't sure what it was.

    Through experimentation, I've found that the special sentry for each armor fires much faster when using that armor. For instance, the explosive trap fires what seems to be twice as fast with Red Riding Armor. I suspect there are other changes, too; perhaps the Explosive trap's radius of effect increases.

    But I don't know how to search for that in the code, or test for it. Is there any way someone can help me find the exact stat changes to sentries when using the correct armor?

    Similarly, I'd love to have help making the Gif images of the sentries' attacks. Thanks! If no one has the time to help, I'll continue adding what I can discover on my own. Mathbrush1 (talk) 05:21, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

    Had a look through the source code and here's what I found about the set bonuses:
    Huntress: Explosive trap explosions have a 1/2 chance to give 4-9 seconds of Oiled. Reduces Explosive Trap recharge rate from 1.83 seconds to 1.23 seconds.
    Red Riding: Includes Huntress Oiled effect. Reduces Explosive Trap recharge rate from 1.83 seconds to 0.67 seconds.
    Monk: 1/6 (16.67%) fixed chance to crit. Increases Lightning Aura damage rate from 0.5 seconds to 0.41 seconds.
    Shinobi Infiltrator: Includes Monk damage rate. 1/4 (25%) fixed chance to crit. Increases Lightning Aura size by 4(tiles?).
    Apprentice: Increases Flameburst velocity by 40% (base value is different for each tier), target range by 50% and field of view by 90% (I think - the value changes from 1 to 0.1)
    Dark Artist: Includes all Apprentice bonuses, only other thing I can find is it increases the amount of particles?
    Squire: Increases Ballista velocity multiplier from 16 to 21 and penetration from 4 to 7. Gives Ballista Panic! for 5 seconds on hit which increases Ballista fire rate by 66%.
    Valhalla Knight: Includes all Squire bonuses. Increases Ballista fire rate from 3 seconds to 1.66 seconds.
    All of this info should probably be included on their pages somehow. User:NeoLeoLuke might be able to help you with adding GIFs of the sentry attacks - they've been working hard on the weapon animation project. --Eraloiz (talk) 09:02, 3 May 2020 (UTC)

    Script Time Limit is Destroying the Statues Page[edit source]

    If you go to the statues page, linked here: https://terraria.gamepedia.com/Statues , every script past the 'W' statue is replaced with "The time allocated for running scripts has expired." This makes the statues page very much less useful. We should either move different types of statues to different pages to lower the script runtime, or find some other way to write the page, since readers aren't getting all of the info we've wrote anyway.

    "Desktop, Console and Mobile" sprites or "old" sprites[edit source]

    I've noticed that several pages which show two sprites, claiming that one sprite is for desktop/console/mobile/etc (like Ice Bat) or has an "old" sprite, (which is no longer used, such as Solidifier and Rainbow Rod) seem to be incorrect. In Mobile, the Rainbow Rod uses the old striped sprite, the Solidifier uses the sprite with an extra shine in the window, and the Ice Bat is dark blue, not light blue/crystalline. What is the issue? --2057clones (talk) 01:27, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

    Items and NPCs have to be treated differently; they use different infobox templates:
    • Items, on one hand, always show "old <item name> sprite", which does not necessarily mean it is no longer used at all, but only that at least one version of Terraria (most likely Desktop version Desktop) uses an updated version.
    • NPCs, on the other hand, have a specific version system and it is possible to assign different versions to the different images. Now since there are many NPCs who have two sprites – one used by Old-gen console version Old-gen console and 3DS version3DS and one used by Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, and Mobile version Mobile – these versions are the default setting if there are two images in the infobox. It is possible to override this by adding a parameter to the {{npc infobox}}: | imageversion2 = {{eversions|1.3.5|invert=y|raw=y}}, if the sprite was updated in 1.3.5, for instance. Of course the versions can also be hard-coded into the infobox: | imageversion2 = console-mobile-old-gen-3ds.

    Melee damage calculations[edit source]

    I have an idea about how damage works, but I don't know if its correct.

    It seems like melee damage increase, critical hit chance increase, and melee speed increase all act multiplicatively, so that if something (like the Shinobi Infiltrator armor) has

    • +20% melee damage,
    • +20% melee critical hit chance, and
    • +20% melee speed,

    that it would increase damage by 1.2*1.2*1.2=1.728, a total increase in DPS of +72%.

    But there are a few things I'm not sure about.

    • Defense makes melee damage better than the others, right? Since critical hits double the damage after defense is taken out?
    • Melee speed and critical hit chance seem like they'd have similar effects, but is there a point where melee speed can't be improved (i.e. use time is too fast?)

    Edit: If these calculations are correct, Beetle Scale Mail would give a max DPS boost (with 3 beetles) of 1.44*1.08*1.12=1.74, which is only a tiny fraction higher than Shinobi Infiltrator armor. Since beetles aren't always active, that would make Shinobi armor on average the highest DPS-granting melee armor in the game. Obviously enemies with high defense or weapons with low attack would make the Beetle scale mail perhaps better.

    1.4 upcoming content[edit source]

    I don't know how to edit pages so that's why I'm doing this here but Gameraiders101 latest YouTube video on 1.4's master mode is chock-full of 1.4 content which can be added to the upcoming features page and I encourage you to look closely at the boss emotes and you might notice some new things.

    Hey! Does anyone play Terraria on PC on v.[edit source]

    Qwawaq1 (talk) 06:45, 15 May 2020 (UTC)If you play Terraria PC version v., please, tell me. I just wanted to someone help me in boss fights, mine ores and gems with me, and so on. Qwawaq1 (talk) 06:45, 15 May 2020 (UTC)

    Make Master Mode stats within brackets [ ][edit source]

    I think that for master mode stats, brackets should be used. This will separate them from the parentheses used for Expert Mode stats. Either brackets or braces { }.


    On death, Softcore players will drop half (75%) [ 100% ] of their coins.

    I hope people will accept this.

    What is the plan to properly update the wiki?[edit source]

    Terraria 1.4 is out. I see many users creating pages for new content, most of wich are stubs. What is the plan to update the wiki, step by step? --Superwill771 (talk) 00:30, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

    Everyone is contributing to the wiki update effort as they discover things through gameplay. A few of us technical people are additionally going over the game files and source code, to capture graphics and make sure info is accurate. Equazcion (talk) 20:15, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

    Moonlord -> Moon Lord[edit source]

    A lot of people have been using "Moonlord" rather than "Moon Lord", and there's even a "Moonlord" image that's been uploaded. Could somebody go through the wiki and try to change everything that says "Moonlord" to say "Moon Lord"? A few pages are protected and I'm not sure how to access the crafting info for the Zenith to fix that. -- 15:00, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

    Apparently the Bosses page is using it a few times, could somebody fix that? -- 19:40, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
    Can you please specify where exactly you are seeing the string "Moonlord" and think it should be changed to "Moon Lord"? A search revealed that "Moonlord" actually occurs very rarely on the wiki – only on talk or user pages and within citations from official sources or Terraria's source code. I have deleted the file "Moonlord.png" (it was a duplicate anyway), thanks for noting that. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 20:05, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
    Specifically, the Bosses page was using it in several places, but that's been fixed and now it's all right. Thanks. -- 21:58, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

    Expert mode color[edit source]

    Previously, on the wiki and in-game, tan was used as the color to represent Expert. However, the game has switched to orange to denote Expert mode. I think the uses of tan to denote Expert on the wiki should also be changed to orange. -- 21:25, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

    Does anybody disagree with this? I'd like the Template to be changed, I think that's all that needs to be done if nobody disagrees, but I don't have the necessary permissions to do so. -- 22:33, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

    Official forums still down.[edit source]

    I guess all the hype for Journey’s End overloaded the server yesterday and currently the forums are down as a result. I’ll have to be patient before I can report any more bugs, dated sprites or other suggestions. --Superwill771 (talk) 00:26, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

    Correct format for adding 1.4.01 content?[edit source]

    I tried editing Keybrand its correct, damage, but I made a bit of a mess of it and didn't know how to handle the 4 at symbols (@@@@). Should I just leave those things alone for now, or there a better way? I used {{eicons|}}, but the old version of eicons still displays the desktop icon.

    Edit: I've changed the old eicons to include "not = dreadnautilus" to get rid of the desktop icon.

    Mathbrush1 (talk) 04:48, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

    The item stat changes of pre-1.4 items are currently in the process of being transferred to the wiki's database. Once that is complete, all item infoboxes will show the most recent, Desktop 1.4 stats. However, we strive to document the entirety of Terraria, so we also have to include the stats for the other versions, which do not have 1.4 at the moment. This can be achieved by modifying the infobox call as follows: | damage = @@@@ {{eicons||small=y}} / 70 {{eicons||not=|small=y}} / 55 {{eicons||invert=y|small=y}}. As described on the template documentation, the string @@@@ will be replaced in the output by the automatic value from the database (which is, as mentioned before, currently for a couple of items not the most recent Desktop value, but will soon be).
    For now, since the new values are not up yet, please just put the new value in place of the @@@@ that I wrote above: | damage = 90 {{eicons||small=y}} / 70 {{eicons||not=|small=y}} / 55 {{eicons||invert=y|small=y}}. It can be changed back to the @@@@ once the database is updated.
    If you find other stats that have changed in 1.4 and are now displayed incorrectly, feel free to proceed in the same manner. On pages where there is no damage parameter yet, add one with | damage = <new 1.4 value> {{eicons||small=y}} / <old value> {{eicons||small=y}}; or, if the entity is already exclusive to some versions (taking Meowmere as an example), | damage = <new 1.4 value> {{eicons||small=y}} / <old value> {{eicons|Meowmere|not=|small=y}}.
    Also please remember to use {{eicons}} with the logically correct parameter value. While {{eicons|Dreadnautilus}} and {{eicons|}} might produce the same output, they're not logically equivalent: The former implies that a stat change is based on when the Dreadnautilus was implemented (which would make sense for an item directly related to it, like a trophy it drops), whereas the latter implies that a stat change was set in effect in the patch – which is correct in this case. (The same of course applies to the not parameter.)
    Thanks for reaching out! --Rye Greenwood (talk) 14:41, 18 May 2020 (UTC)

    Combat Wrench drop by the Mechanic and destructible dungeon secrets[edit source]

    When I rescued my mechanic from the dungeon, I didn't have an oped house so she promptly perished, leaving me with her combat wrench. There is no page on the wiki for this item, so I'm guessing it's a 1.4 item. Another thing I found was crumbly walls in the dungeon that break away at the touch of a pickaxe. I have never seen these before in my time with terraria, and don't see a line in the dungeon page about them, so they must be 1.4 aswell. Both of these things happened in master mode.

    I can confirm the crumbling walls are in Classic mode, as well. It seems like a huge chunk of the dungeon is buried by the walls. There's a lot of new traps, too, mostly crumbling floors over huge pit traps, some with water. Mathbrush1 (talk) 01:32, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    Wiki revamp[edit source]

    yeah —Preceding unsigned comment added by XCRunnerS (talkcontribs) at 20:37, 18 May 2020

    Are you talking about there being an image background? There is one on this wiki, at least on desktop. I think having a solid page makes the wiki much more readable. Fireboltthecoolcat (talk) 20:44, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
    I have to disagree. A solid background is 10 times better readable. I wish we had a dark mode though. The screen is too bright at night. Leonord cursetalk」 02:29, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    Redundant pages for gem bunnies and gem squirrels.[edit source]

    Having a separate page for each type of gem bunny and squirrel, such as the Diamond Bunny or Amber Squirrel seems pointless when they are all pretty much the same apart from visual differences. They should be merged into Gem Bunny and Gem Squirrel pages. Fireboltthecoolcat (talk) 00:41, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    A new Gem Critters page has been made. Shyskream6284 (talk) 00:44, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

    Difficulty Mode changes[edit source]

    So, I have some changes to propose based on some changes in the game. First, one of the tips refers to Expert mode as "Expert Mode", so mentions of the "Difficulty Modes" (Journey, Expert and Master) should be modified accordingly. Second, the game now uses orange to signify Expert Mode in-game, so {{Expert}} should also have its color changed. -- 00:50, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    NPC Universal Formatting?[edit source]

    With 1.4 adding a ton of content that will require new sections on every NPC page thanks to the new Happiness mechanic, is there any format that is being considered to be the standard across the town NPC pages? Some NPC pages have notes as the very first section, most others have Items as the first section (if they have one), and things like Achievements, Trivia, and Notes are in any order under the sun.

    If it's possible to propose one: Function (Help, Heal, Items Sold, Quests, etc), Secondary Function (If they sell items, their other function, like Quests for Dye Trader, Status for Dryad, Eternia Crystal for Tavernkeep, etc), Happiness preferences, Quotes, Names, Achievements, Notes, Trivia. Additionally, potentially consider merging Notes and Tips into a single Notes section, as having both seems a bit superfluous. Warpshard (talk) 02:29, 19 May 2020 (UTC)

    1.4 Stardust rework and trivia section[edit source]

    I hate to bring up this old topic again but with the upcoming release and rework of the stardust armor set, it's been made fairly clear on the official forum that the set bonus is a reference to JJBA. The original concept and design may have been made with WoW in mind but this new rework along with the quote "All resemblance to a certain anime is purely coincidental", I think the idea this can be considered a Jojo reference is indisputable. Yoraiz0r confirmed that it wasn't a Jojo reference initially and this made sense since the initial concept bore little resemblance other than appearance. I believe Red also confirmed that this is a Jojo reference though I don't have the link to that. I think the trivia section should at least be appended to account for this rework. 05:04, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

    Info on Yoyos page is wrong[edit source]

    Hello, I was browsing through the https://terraria.gamepedia.com/Yoyos page to see what yoyos I want to try to get, but then saw on my game that the Chik has less damage than the Gradient but the page says otherwise, so i clicked on each of their pages separately and they have different info on each of their pages. So I'm guessing the info on the yoyos page is wrong and needs to be updated. 19:17, 20 May 2020 (UTC) iroh71.69.95.108 19:17, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

    Can an item have no item ID? Dry rockets and Cluster Rockets[edit source]

    I've been working on Rocket and the Item IDs page doesn't list these rockets anywhere, yet they can be bought. What's going on here? Mathbrush1 (talk) 00:27, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

    Also the Item IDs page says that put Item IDs up to 5042 but ID 5000 and on is old stuff no longer in the game. Did someone manually set some IDs to the 5000 range thinking the game would never get there? Mathbrush1 (talk) 00:36, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
    Never mind, {{ItemIdFromName|Cluster Rocket I}} gives 4445. Doesn't show up in the table, though. Mathbrush1 (talk) 00:55, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
    The Item IDs page had problems because of the clash between old-gen-/3DS-exclusive items, which use IDs greater than 5000, and the new 1.4 items with IDs greater than 5000. Previously, only items that had a page and an {{item infobox}} on that page would show up on the list (hence why the Cluster Rockets wouldn't appear), but this has been changed. It should now always display all Desktop items. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:01, 22 May 2020 (UTC)[edit source]

    So now Torch Luck has been removed. Well, it was unfun while it lasted. Now that there’s no need to gather info on mixed biome torches and the like, I think we can remove that from the noticeboard. 04:33, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

    Crate potion recipe is incorrect for PC[edit source]

    The recipe does not require blinkroot (which the wiki states is required). I'm on, pre-hardmode in a large, master mode world in case other people's recipes are different. I tried editing the crate potion page but I don't know how to edit the recipe. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Adopted Asian (talkcontribs) at 10:44, 21 May 2020 (UTC)

    You are right, the Blinkroot is not required for crafting the Crate Potion. Crafting recipes are taken from Terraria's source code, and this one in particular has a typo in it, so that the Blinkroot is (unintentionally) not included in-game, yet still managed to sneak its way into the wiki's database during the conversion to wikicode. I have reported the source code typo on the forums and have fixed the recipe here. Thank you for noting! --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:01, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

    Having trouble with eicons[edit source]

    I've tried updating Moonlords treasure specifically celebration since it no longer drops from him, but i can't subtract the pc icon (though it is possible to add icons).

    I've read the eicons documentation and it gives an example for itemlists, trying example still does nothing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) at 16:22, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

    What is the code that you tried and that didn't work? As already included in the Moon Lord's drop table code, not= subtracts the icons of all platforms that have 1.4 (at the moment only Desktop, but Console and Mobile at some point, too):
    | Celebration Mk2|{{eicons|}}|11.1%
    | Celebration|{{eicons|Moon Lord|not=}}|11.1%
    --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:01, 22 May 2020 (UTC)
    Moonlords drops on the treasure bag page haven't been updated (https://terraria.gamepedia.com/Treasure_Bags#Moon_Lord)
    | {{item|Celebration}} {{eicons| desktop = 0}} || 11% || 1
    | {{item|Celebration}} {{eicons| not = desktop}} || 11% || 1
    These were some of the code changes (but not all) i tried but couldn't remove the desktop icon.

    Missing Dreadnautilus Infobox[edit source]

    So I'm making a Blood Moon Strategies guide, when I find out there is no Dreadnautilus infobox. I think That's a problem.Pispacedolphinmachinegun (talk) 16:23, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

    The Dreadnautilus page does have an {{npc infobox}}, at the top of its source code. You can put {{transclude infobox|Dreadnautilus}} on any page to dynamically transclude this infobox. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 19:01, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

    Class Setups[edit source]

    The Class Setups page is lacking info about viable pre-Skeletron post BoC/EoW setups.

    Dreadnautilus[edit source]

    So right now, the Dreadnautilus is considered a “mini-boss”. Is there any proof of Re-logic saying it is a mini boss? In the 1.2 patch notes, Ice Golem is considered a mini boss, however on the wiki it displays it as a normal entity.

    Thank you for noticing this. I've fixed it. -- 15:15, 23 May 2020 (UTC)

    1.4: Master Mode’s Enemy Stats[edit source]

    It seems like you can just do 1.5x expert damage and and max life for master mode stats, but I still hope that we can have them added to the database or whatever the source of auto enemy status for infoboxes is instead of having to do it on each independent page. —Creeper_NoDenial

    Still Crepeer_NoDenial here. Time 26 May afternoon UTC. Seems like Master mode doesn’t have a post-Plantera stage according to Template:master. Fine and that’s good to know. Auto infobox at this time is broken- also check next section. - Creeper_NoDenial 26 May 2020 UTC 17:23

    NPC infobox template broken values as for 26 May 17h UTC[edit source]

    At this point NPC infobox automatic information is in chaos. Green slime says damage 6 / 112 and life 14 / 324 which has an expert mode status seems to be even higher than previous post-plantera status. Pretty sure we are not having a major update on this now. An example of this is Blue Slime, I have the old values imputed manually for master mode stats and well, witnessed the auto info going chaos. Currently you can see, in the brackets of expert values are the auto infobox value, marked with a ?, and the master mode values are manual inputs. That ? on Hardmode damage 96 is because I am currently unable to confirm that as I haven’t progressed to this point yet and am not into working on the game sources.

    Just hoping that you can get this problem sorted out ASAP and provide a correct value as I’m currently on Master mode gameplay and well, without Wiki things are really frustrating. Bestiary isn’t helping that much but I am 100% sure with master mode pre-Hardmode damage 21, Blue Slime’s expert mode damage data won’t be that from the beginning. —- CreeperNoDenial 26 May 2020 UTC 17:22

    Old 1.0.5 Unverified change nobody probably cares about[edit source]

    With 1.4 out there's probably more important posts to read but I thought it might be worth sharing.

    I felt like trying to solve some information in Category:Verify, and there was a couple undocumented changes from 1.0.5 that I wanted to verify since I have a collection of old versions. One was about unholy arrows which I verified as correct, however the other one mentions "Flaming Arrows no longer emit light when wet." from my testing, all the versions up until even work the exact same way. Flaming arrows shot from a bow stay ignited and lit up while in the water, and dropped flaming arrows from the inventory work like torches and stop lighting while underwater. I am missing versions 1.1 and 1.1.1, though I have tested in 1.1.2 and I found the flaming arrows were fixed and extinguish underwater properly.

    Since I don't really have a good way of finding the exact version, this is where my journey ended. I know it's got nothing to do with 1.0.5, so I removed it from the page. If any historians are able to find the actual version it changed in (between 1.1 and 1.1.2), feel free to document it on the correct page and the flame arrow page as well.

    Hello, the stubbed articles are all about a freshly made page. While adding reasons to stubs is a nice idea, these are, generally, barely used.

    Spider Nest Blocks on block page[edit source]

    When viewing the image showing blocks in terraria, the image does not include the spider nest block.

    The music box page is messy and confusing.[edit source]

    For example the boss 4 music box is listed twice which is because there are different ways to obtain it, but the version icons are in confusing places. The boss 4 music box has the pc, console, old-gen console, and mobile icons next to it, and then next to that are the pc, console, and mobile icons in parenthesis. The icons in parenthesis are referring to the ways to get it in that version, even though its explained in a different section of the table. The icons in parenthesis should actually be next to the ways to get it, like how it is for the boss 1 box. There are several music boxes listed properly like the boss 1 box, and several that aren't correct such as the boss 4, boss 5, ice, and snow boxes.

    Hornet health[edit source]

    It says on the hornet page that hornets cannot be killed by players directly. Is this a mistake? as the history section says nothing about that. The hornets health in the infobox is also gone.Pispacedolphinmachinegun (talk) 16:00, 1 June 2020 (UTC)

    Problem with Dark Mode and new NPC Infobox template[edit source]

    Hey! There appears to be an issue with dark mode and the new npc infobox template. The text that reads "Classic" on the infobox is incredibly difficult to read because dark mode causes it to have white text on a white background. NewtheElf (talk) 05:18, 2 June 2020 (UTC)

    Thanks for noting, I have adjusted those tab colors. The backgrounds of the section titles ("Statistics", "Drops", etc.) may need to be tweaked as well, while still adhering to the color schemes of Expert and Master, though. Should you have any color suggestions for those, please feel free to share them. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 05:55, 2 June 2020 (UTC)
    Just messed around in Paint for a bit, and found some Hex values that I think look pretty decent in darkmode. You could potentially try 9B7049 and F7C699 for Expert mode background and text respectively, and 996669 and EFBFC2 for Master mode background and text, or colors similar to those.
