Are you struggling to find the best shit in Terraria? How about killing one-eyed monsters? or even digging down to the depths of the earth and killing giant walls of flesh?
Well your in luck today because I’m guest writer Nick and If you follow my tips, your sure to survive the horrid world of Terraria.
Tip #1 Gather Them Sweet Resources
Once you enter the world of Terraria you’ll be faced with many challenges, including collecting sweet resources before nightfall.
You’ll want to be collecting a substantial amount of wood, specifically around 200 pieces. This will allow you to build a 10 x 5 house. Which can be used to construct a:
- A Crafting Table – Allows for more in depth building and personal equipment.
- NPC Interaction – As you expand your house and explore more of the surrounding area, NPC’s with specific traits will come and live with you. Allowing for rarer resources to be obtained and better equipment to be crafted.
Resources like wood are vital from the very start, and are constantly needed throughout your play through.

Tip #2 Crafting Is An Art
You’ve followed tip #1 and you now have a crafting table but what’s next?
In order to succeed in the harsh 2D environment, you’ll need to be harsh yourself. The answer…?
Now you may be thinking to yourself, how does any of this have to do with crafting? Well my dear friend, slimes are a key component to moving into a higher tier in Terraria. This is due to the Gel excreted when they are killed. Enabling players to craft new and extravagant items such as torches, flaming arrows and furnaces (very important).
Furnaces are a gateway into further equipment upgrades and new items. These items will give you the ability to take down stronger opponents/bosses.

Tip #3 Exploring Below & Beyond
If you haven’t already noticed, the Underworld and Space of Terraria are like two completely different worlds. This is due to the expansive elements they consist of.
The Underworld: Unlike Minecraft, mining straight down is a fast and effective way to find ores and caves. In addition, physical properties, such as water (which is a common occurrence) means you’ll be dealing with flash flooding’s and potential drownings if exposed. Therefore, make sure to keep cautious when mining above.
Enemies and traps are also a common feature of the depths. However, the dangers will depend on how deep you are. The Wall Of Flesh for example is the last boss of The Underworld. Featuring a whole wall of flesh that will shoot lasers and minions at you. To defeat this boss you’ll need to be well-equipped with gear from mining and crafting ore’s.
Traps can also be very hazardous, such as lava pits, boulders and poisonous arrows. Some of these can be instant kills, so laying down a well lit path with tourches and floors will help with navigating these tricky terrains.
Space: Traveling to space is less exciting and requires building upwards from the get go or finding a potion which reverts gravity. From there you will face different flying enemy types, like Demons and Harpies. These can be tough to take down, so make sure you are equipped with predominantly ranged weapons.
