Surviving in Terraria canterraria logo 1 be a challenge if you don’t know the game mechanics. First things first, getting a weapon. You weak copper short sword isn’t going to cut it. You’re going to have to mine some ores to create a broadsword. For the time being, just mine some iron  and make some iron bars using a crafting table that is made of wood. You also might want to quickly made a small hut and put your guide in. Even if you don’t think he’s important now, once you start getting lots of new materials, you’re going to need him. Anyway once you create you iron broadsword, you should find the desert and mine some cacti. Once you do that, simply craft some cactus armor. Cactus armor is helpful in the beginning because the set bonus will give you an extra boost in defense. If you are a beginner then this should be about the end of the first night, however if you have some extra time look for chests and try to find a pyramid. This pyramid will get you a flying carpet which allows for much better travel side to side. If you are an expert player, you may try and attempt to defeat Skeletron, he boss of the dungeon, however I would not recommend this if you are a beginner or you are on hardcore. An example of an expert player is a Youtuber by the name of Yrimir. If you have created you armor, iron broadsword, and a house, you should have no problem surviving the night.

Terraria is basically a 2-D, better Minecraft. Now you may argue that Minecraft is better because it is more realistic or more in depth, but I’m here to assess Terraria. Terraria has many new features that were incorporated in the 1.3 version that came out June 30th.  Some of the features include new items, enemies, bosses, and blocks. 1.3 added an expert mode that makes everything much harder, however it allows for much better items to be collected. Two new events were added, the Martian Invasion, and the Celestial Event. The Celestial Event is also a preparation for the final boss of Terraria, the Moon Lord. Terraria 1.3 will also bring the very first walkthrough on this website. Anyway, 1.3 adds many new features that makes even the most bored players become interested in the new and improved game and is very well worth $9.99 and your time.
