Bugle banner Issue 20 version

Hello Terrarians! Welcome to the twentieth issue of The Terrarian Bugle! I honestly can't believe that we've made it this far! This newspaper has been publishing articles for nearly half a year; that's a long time! I just wanna thank all the people who've supported this article. I want to thank you for putting up with delays in issues and issue cancellations – It really means a lot to me. To show my appreciation, I'm going to double up the polls, include bonus content in the weekly special, and do an interview of myself for this week! Anyways, today we have some exciting PC update info to sort through, then we'll be checking out the weekly events, and finally, we're going to continue our series of Hunited's sprites, with a few bonus sprites in honor of the twentieth Issue! Thanks for reading, and enjoy! :D

Update Info


Cenx just updated us on the 3,000th item added to Terraria! This new spoiler post also included a few other useful notes, which will be listed below, all in Cenx's words.

Cenx states:

Item 3,000:

"The Alchemy Table. When you craft potions at the Alchemy table each item in the recipe has a 1 in 3 chance to not be consumed. This item is new and still being tested so it is subject to change.


Red's new secret project:

Red has been working on a new game mode currently being called "Expert Mode". In expert mode the games difficulty has been greatly increased. Players will face old monsters with new ai, bosses with new ai and mechanics, and much more with greater rewards for their efforts.

Release Date:

Many of you have been asking when the update will be released. Simple put...When it is done. I do not want to give the team an imaginary release date to strive for to add unnecessary stress to the job. We want this update to be amazing and feel 100% complete and for those reasons we are going to take our time."

Exclusive interview with a member of this Wiki

For Issue 20, I thought that I'd, in essence, interview myself. My interviewer's name will be "Interview Bot", and, of course, I'll be going by my username. Enjoy!

Interview Bot: So what exactly is your favorite boss and why?

TerrariamcSwaggins: That's a real tough one for me, but I think that I'm gonna have to go with Plantera. The music for the boss fight is easily my favorite music in the game. I also really enjoy the combat mechanics and sprite of the boss, along with its unique drops. Plantera is just an all-around good boss.

Interview Bot: What is your favorite biome and why?

TerrariamcSwaggins: My favorite biome would probably be the Forest biome. I really like the relaxed nature of this biome and the great music that comes with it.

Interview Bot: About how long have you been playing Terraria for?

TerrariamcSwaggins: I've been playing Terraria now for about 1 year and 2-3 months, give or take a couple months. I have ~400 hours on Steam and a fair estimate of my console hours would be around ~100 hours. So about ~500 hours all together

Interview Bot: Final question, what class do you usually play as?

TerrariamcSwaggins: I play mostly as a Tank, however, I do occasionally play as a sort of Jack-of-all-Trades.

Weekly Special

I'm very pumped to continue our series; Hunited's amazing sprites! So let's get to it! Welcome to part four.

Credit for the sprites goes to Hunited.

This week is the ending of the weapons theme, the complete monsters theme, and the complete accessories theme! Enjoy the double dosage of the sprited goodness!

Your opinion on these sprites?

The poll was created at 01:26 on October 20, 2014, and so far 53 people voted.
