Best Creation/Pixel art of the Week

This week we have one submission! It's an awesome fire shrine built by Koburo! It appears to be a beautifully constructed fire alter placed on the top of a floating island. Be sure to compliment Kob next time you see him!

Exclusive interview with a member of this Wiki

TerrariamcSwaggins: Okay! So you have time for an interview today?

Twilight053: Yes!

TerrariamcSwaggins: Awesome! First question, what is your favorite boss and why?

Twilight053: My favorite boss would be Plantera, or more precisely, Surface Plantera. She is very challenging to fight on the surface, with, you know, all the speed boosts and damage boosts? It took me several tries before actually defeating her. Another reason I like her would be that her boss music is my favorite music in the Terraria soundtrack.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Aye. Plantera is the communities' favorite boss, it seems! Next question, about how long have you played Terraria for?

Twilight053: In total, I have played for 370 hours according to my Steam. I spent the first 182 hours last year in Terraria 1.1, that time I was a big time PvP beast. The rest I've spent it on Terraria 1.2.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Awesome! Dang, I didn't know that you had that much history with Terraria. :3 Next question, what is your favorite biome and why?

Twilight053: Purity, of course. I just like the natural feeling of the biome, but maybe that's because I'm a naturalist type person - I've sometimes dreamt of living alone in a serene forest. :)

TerrariamcSwaggins: Oooh, that's a new one. I agree, the Purity has always been likely my favorite. It's so relaxed. Final question, class do you prefer most?

Twilight053: Ranger. I've always picked the ranged class in every game I play, be it gunslinger or archer. But now that I've created all four Terraria classes, I would say that the Mage class would be my the fun-class.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Cool, cool! Well, it's been a pleasure, Thank you for your time!

Twilight053: Sure, no problem!
