    Pretty much beaten the current content, all that's left to do now is try and get some rare mob drops.

    [​IMG]

    I found the underground jungle and underworld both much easier than the dungeon - mostly because of the ridiculous spawn rates in the dungeon. Not that the enemies were particularly hard even en masse, but it made moving around and trying to loot the chests fucking annoying. Found the Cobalt Shield tho so no reason to ever go back there. :smug:

    Small world will definitely push you through the content much faster, so if you're looking to enjoy it a bit longer and take things slow, by all means make a medium or even large (large probably best left for co-op tho).



    Is there an upgraded version of the Vilethorn btw? It's the only weapon/spell I've come across that goes through walls - pretty much irreplaceable against burrowing enemies.

    Yeah, I'm set for now. Have pretty much all the best gear, killed all the bosses and saw all the places. There are some accessories out there that would be nice, but I don't desperately need them. I'm sitting on a ton of gold coins too. I wish there were more good items that cost lots of money. The mining hat is pretty much the only item worth buying. I'd still like to get the Rocket Boots before finally retiring until the next update, but I have no idea how to trigger the goblin invasion.

    Well you could always buy the 50g gun the arms dealer has, and craft it into Star Cannon (with meteorite bars and fallen stars). It uses the stars for ammo, too. :D

    I said good items. Things that you'd want to use opposed to novelty toys. Anyway, I spent an hour trying to farm a Sunfury just because I'm kinda bored and there's nothing else to do. No cigar. It's kinda boring to wait for a Bone Serpent to spawn and pray that it'll drop a rare item. On the plus side I must say that Shadow Armor + Feral Claws + Murasama = awesome.
    And I just realised that there is another rare armor that is missing from my armory, but fuck that. The pieces are rare drops by Hornets in the jungle, but that place blows. Ain't going there again. It's basically Meteor Armor with more defense.

    Two nights' worth, and it's not like I was rushing or anything. Small map makes it easier, not to mention how you can basically skip whole tiers of gear completely.

    I've played around 15 hours so far on a medium map. I have:

    -Gold pick, silver breastplate, gold legs, miner's helmet, bronze watch, depth meter, cloud in a bottle
    -Killed eye of cthulhu just recently after it started spawning automatically
    -280 health and 3 stars worth of mana (never used it yet)
    -Switched my main weapon from a gold broadsword to a demonite axe thanks to the ore I got from the boss

    I've spent most of the time exploring natural caves while avoiding dungeons and corruption like a pussy, so that's probably why my loots aren't too phat.

    Nonsense.

    Minecraft brings a shitty iteration of asperger's directly to paying costumers.
    Playing minecraft is like pretending to be Cleve.

    I've got 25 hours clocked in. Played on a Large map. I'm sure I can squeeze an extra hour or two here and there when I do decide to go back and farm the rest of the fat loot, because I'm a vain asshole who likes to have an extensive arsenal of valuable items that no one else has. :M

    Edit:

    [​IMG]

    Alright, now I think I'm done. Even made the shitty Star Cannon because I was swimming in cash. Now all I have to do is wait for some tougher enemies to be patched in. Wonder what I'll play next.

    Bumping thread as its really worth playing. I dont know how you guys are swimming in gold, i have much more trouble gathering it in the first world generated .I cant survive long in thell part, i am swarmed by range imps + some flying serpen, not to mention i ahd to flood it with underground rivers to not be killed by the fall, i love it.
    Those randomly generated universe are fascinating,its dangerously addicting. I find it more entertaining than minecraft, theres actually some game inside. So far its really worth the 10 bucks, the exploration is great, the world is huge, ton of hidden stuff , really really good game.It has the oldschool feeling, back then when it was gameplay above all.

  14. Not too bad for stomping through most/all the current content for $10 then. Especially since they're supposedly going to keep adding shit.

    Terraria or Minecraft. Which is better and why? Discuss!!!
    I'm leaning toward Terraria. I might think differently once I've seen it all, but it currently seems better than the current state of Minecraft (Except for pure block stacking I suppose) and most likely will only get better as time goes on, while The Damn Swede adds things like music blocks and tamable wolves.

    Well, this game is less about building and more about exploration compared to Minecraft. Everyones initial reaction to Terraria is that it's Minecraft in 2d. So was mine. But once you play it, you realise that it isn't anything like minecraft at all. Actually, this game feels more like friggin' Castlevania. As I said, exploration is the key element in this game, and it does it well. Constantly looking for chests or health upgrades when mining around, finding neat cave systems that are fun and dangerous to explore, shitting your pants when The Eye of Cthulhu suddenly spawns, and you don't know why, and he melts your face. It's a lot of fun to figure out all the neat things in the game. The progression to power is satisfying as well and not linear like in Minecraft. Gear doesn't become better tier by tier after Gold equipment. You'll pick your favorite armor based on play style and stick with it due to distinct set bonuses, or keep switching gear based on the situation. Same goes for the neat accessories that can give you all kinds of cool and fun abilities.

    I heard a rumor that the devs are going to add more content to the flying islands and sand areas next, so I expect they'll support the game for quite some time. Even if they didn't it's still a lengthier game than most modern games, and only at 10 bucks. There's no shit content in it either with the sole purpose to make the game artificially longer. It has substance and meaning. Oh, and fun.
    Personally I'd like to see a proper aquatic area some day, and a cool boss to go with it.

    Am I the only one who shat bricks when I first ran into Skeletron? Didn't have any prior knowledge on him, and I was pretty damn surprised when I accidentally triggered him.

    Yeah that was a fun moment. Probably the biggest reason I swiped the leaked versions; I wanted to see more of the game so badly but I wanted to experience all the surprises like that myself, not through watching some douche on a LP.

    I'm hoping the game gets cracked open for modding pretty quickly. Game has massive potential for adding new bosses, areas and items, and the devs are deluded if they think they can do a better job than 10000 people. They need volcanoes, snow areas, under water areas, bosses for each, mini bosses, multiple races, handmade castles and dungeons and tombs and a shitload of special block types and things to build. Oh, and someone needs to add the old sprites back in. That nurse looks like a tranny.

    Still lots of fun right now though. Me and Ashery just fought some of the bosses today.

    @mortmal:

    just leave your money in a chest or the piggy bank before going out to explore - you drop 50% of your money upon death, but that's only for the cash you have on you.


    Heh, funny how these things spread, just made that yesterday.

    There's a wrapper out for larger resolutions, height seems to be limited to 800 at the moment (game doesn't render graphics past that so you just see black beyond that point), but any width is ok.

    http://dl.flamehaus.com/TerrariaWrapper.exe drop it into steam\steamapps\common\terraria (or wherever you installed if you're a marauder of the high seas) and make a shortcut, ie. TerrariaWrapper.exe -width 1280 -height 720

    I'm running it with 1920x800 (click for full size):

    The only issue - as you can see - is the mana bar in the middle of the screen, but I don't mind since hopefully this is just temporary and the devs should add proper support soon (if they aren't retarded).

    ..Or you could just download this mod for floating islands in minecraft AND a shitton of other cool content. Notch is a massive faggot. He keeps adding stuff that has been modded in. Maybe he should concentrate on adding gameplay instead of more useless shit. Hurr I can build the same castle I've built 500 times before, only this time in the air!
