Hello Terrarians! Welcome to the fourth issue of The Terrarian Bugle! Thank you for all your support it really means a lot. :D Today we're gonna be going through some update info for PC, a status update on the bug fixes for Console, and some amazing sprites later on. Thanks for reading and enjoy! :D
Exciting news for PC Terrarians! The 1.2.4 update is currently being checked for bugs so the estimated time of release is about 5-6 days from now. Here are a few screenshots of the highly anticpated update.
You can go here to view the official announcement:http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/that-one-new-thing-we-havent-been-talking-about.140608/
Many bugs were discovered upon the release of the 1.2 update for console nearly crushing the fans with disappointment. Luckily, 505 Games and Engine have released the first status update on the crisis. It says:
Just a quick update, we have a patch entering testing and QA today that looks promising. This is still a few steps away from release, but we want to keep you updated.
Thanks for being patient. :)"
So expect the bug fix in hopefully a week or so from now.

505 Games is currently focused on releasing the bug fix for Console versions so expect a further delay in the release of the Hardmode update. We do not have a confirmed date for the update as of now.

Best Creation/Pixel art of the Week
This week we have three submissions! The first is CheeseburgerPaws' Egytian Eye of Ra pixel art. It is made completely out of Topaz Gemspark Blocks. The second is Bowskill247's biosphere home. And the third is Squazzil's amazing Mushroom Palace which is constructed on a Floating Island! Make sure to let these awesome builders know how much you love their creations! :D
Exclusive interview with a member of this Wiki
TerrariamcSwaggins: Hi Squazz would mind if I interviewed you for the Terrarian Bulgle?
TerrariamcSwaggins: Okay, so we'll start with this question. What is your favorite Boss and why?
Squazzil: I have to say Plantera because I really like how it enters the battle, creeping in with its long vines, and I think it’s a cool looking Boss. It’s also the only one that made me feel challenged.
TerrariamcSwaggins: I agree, heh, it seems like Plantera is a fan favorite. Next question, about how long have you played Terraria for?
Squazzil: It seems so long ago but I think I have been playing for about 4 years, right around update 1.0.6. I just broke 806 hours of playtime.
TerrariamcSwaggins: 0_0 That’s amazing. What was the most intense moment in all your 4 years of Terraria?
Squazzil: To be honest, it has been more intense since I started a new character after 1.2.3 came out because the game has become more challenging with all the new monsters and biomes. So I would have to say my recent re-battling of the Twins was pretty intense and more rewarding to beat them this time around.
9:05TerrariamcSwaggins: Awesome, last question: What is your choice of weapons and Armor?
Squazzil: I like being a tank best so I stick with the most defense I can get so I wear Beetle Armor (with the higher defense chest) and I also like melee so I use Terra Blade and Vampire Knives, with the occasional use of either the Tactical Shotgun or Chain Gun when a gun is useful. Chlorophyte bullets help with my crappy gun wielding abilities. ;)
TerrariamcSwaggins: I agree, the Tank class is a very good class to use especially combo'ed with the Vampire knives. That’s it, Thank you for your time!
Squazzil: No problem.
