    I have the same problem with this I have with minecraft, I can't find any good ores. Been digging for 30 minutes and I've only come up with dirt and stone. Not even more copper.

    I bought this last night and I have to say I love it.

    Even if my experience so far has been to kill a few slime things and get some dirt which was quickly made into a box around my guy as I waited out the night.

    Awesome.

    Mostly just huntin' monsters.

    Look for natural cave systems. Digging anywhere else is fairly pointless. You shouldn't have to explore far to find one. Often you can also find copper/iron on the surface, but not in large quantities.

    Just got had my first goblin army event - I sorta wish there was a Goblin General to fight at the end, because otherwise it's just ten minutes of clicking as stuff slowly runs towards you.

    that damn guide won't leave my house!

    There are several other nice places to live you bastard. Leave my 2 story + basement with secret passage getaway along. He stayed in his house... until I turned it into an addition to my first floor. Why won't he leave?!

    Also I'm sort of lost in general. By day I've been exploring east and west and by night i've been digging. haven't found much yet though so it's hard to get the other NPCs to show up

    Are you just digging, or are you starting from a generated hole? I find when I start from solid dirt, I don't get anywhere for a while, but the game generates so many caves and paths down that you can usually do yourself a favor by finding a path underground already started by the game, and building from there.

    I was just digging. I realized after I broke through into the cave that there was already an opening on the far side of the hill i had dug into

    So what's the general consensus on night's edge? Is it worth sacrificing the muramasa?

    no, not if you use the muramasa

    it's really slow and chances are you will do more damage with a lot of other weapons


    there's nothing stopping you from getting a second muramasa, though

    I started more worlds so I could gather more muramasa blades.

    That way I will have the original and the new weapon when I get around to making one.

    I've been trying to get into this.

    I don't think I can. :/

    Something about the controls is utterly jarring and unintuitive to me. I just find the whole thing crazy hard to play.

    Think I'll stick to Minecraft! :P

    I have no idea how to play this.
    All I keep doing is throwing workbenches and every time I get near them to try and craft stuff, I scoop it back up.

    oh

    you just dropped it on the ground

    you want to put it in one of the first ten inventory slots and either click on that slot or hit the number key that matches it

    once you've selected the bench, left click on the area you want it to go

    I found a sky island and got a smidgen of gold and silver. Enough for a silver shortsword but I'm not going back to that. I need a better pick so bad. Getting bored of dirt.

    Does anyone have a server running? I'd like to play with someone else, but none of the ones on the front page ever seem to be working.

    I finally got my full copper armor set done today. Also a gold broadsword, a gold pick ax and an iron ax. Problem is the 2 big caves I have descended into are flooded at the bottom with no direct way of draining the water. So I am now searching for new caves. Found a huge area of corruption and hit rock I couldn't get through with my pick ax trying to go under it. The other side is a desert I think I am going to try and cross it.

    So, is there a guide for setting up a server that doesn't have tons of people arguing over how easy and how horrible wrong it is at the same time? I bought my friend and I a copy to play together without realizing the blackhole of doom that trying to set up a Terraria server seems to be.

    Wouldn't going to Multiplayer > Host & Play work? Might have to open the proper ports and all that but could just use that for you and your friend to play on. It's not permanent, but would save you the headache.

    So I've built an ore and have smelted all of my copper and iron that I've found. Can't build anything else interesting at the moment. I tried to find a sky island and built up but hit the ceiling so... I guess expand left and right?

    Only build sky bridges with wooden planks.

    If you build it with other material it will block meteors from hitting the ground which will deny you a whole resource.

    And I'm only like 50% sure wooden planks don't block meteors.

    I've played this game for about an hour and I'm not sure what exactly I should do.
    I'm feeling very underwhelmed and I'm not sure where all the praise came from.

    I managed to get a little house made and I mined some iron.

    What makes this game fun?
    I am not asking sarcastically.

    I am not asking sarcastically.

    There are basically two main things to do: Explore and Build. I tend to do more building than exploring, the latter feeding the former's need for resources.

    There are specific goals, but really, they just provide you with the means for more exploring and/or building. That's really the game in a nutshell - if neither of those things is providing you with fun, this may not be the game for you.

    However, if you like either of those and you're just not sure what to do, just talk to the guide a bunch, or set the goal of better equipment by finding silver/gold and making armor and weapons from it.

    You can host&play or you can run the server app in the Terraria folder. Either way it is very straightforward.

    The hardest part is opening the port (default is 7777) on your router.

    So uh....went to fight the dungeon guardian. Got him down to about 500HP when he just vanished, and the battle music died off - no 'Boss defeated!' message or anything. Gave it a couple minutes...and one of his hands kinda plonked down beside me, dead.

    Off I do inside the dungeon, and nothing attacks me. Go down a little further, and get instagibbed by the flying skull heads.

    Ugh, yay glitching out.

    Thanks, Loathing and Enig! Everything I read referenced the Hamachi way for a permanent server I didn't need, but opening 7777 and doing Host and Play worked perfectly!

    I don't understand them either!

    At the top corner there you can see the entry tunnel. I flooded the left side from up there. I just didn't have the glass there above the wooden platforms when I did it. I blocked the platforms with a couple solid rocks or whatever so that water wouldn't get in. When I flooded, it actually went a ways up the tunnel but putting a block in a space with water in it basically deletes the water if there's nowhere for the water to expand so I just placed blocks and mined them out until the tunnel was clear of water, after I partitioned off the flooded areas with glass.

    Even if you constructed that thing in reality, water would not fill the entire J. There would be air trapped at the tip and, at a certain point, the compressed air would exert more pressure than the water, and you'd have an air pocket.

    I know enough that the water would stop flowing at the bottom and wouldn't rise up on the left side because that's how the game mechanics work; it's similar to building air pockets when exploring water.
