Hello Terrarians! Welcome to the fifth issue of The Terrarian Bugle! The support for this series has been astounding, so I will continue to release this on a weekly basis. :D Today we're gonna be going through some update info for PC, another status update on the bug fixes for Console, and some amazing fan art later on. Thanks for reading and enjoy! :D
The countdown to the 1.2.4 update has reached an estimated 2-3 days! If you haven't read the official post please go here to view it: http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/that-one-new-thing-we-havent-been-talking-about.140608/
If you haven't watched the official trailer, you can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAnFPLRZ968
Also, we do have news for the Lunar update, here's what Red says:
"For those of you curious about the much hyped up Lunar Update; The graphics team is currently working on assets for the Lunar Event. Once 1.2.4 is bug free and released we will get to work on the programming side of things."
So we can expect them to get right to work on the ultimate update right after the 1.2.4 launch. :D
505 Games has just released another update of the 1.2 console crisis. They say:
Heading into the weekend, we want to give you all another quick update on the status of the 1.2 patch for consoles.
We are nearing completion of our internal testing this weekend and plan to have a solid submission (aka "certification") ready patch to send over to Microsoft and Sony in the first half of next week.
Please keep in mind that we do not control the release date and must wait for approval from Microsoft and Sony after they complete their process before we are able to give one.
So, at this point we cannot give you a release date and ask that you do not speculate on your own. Speculation and guesswork tends to cause a lot of drama here in the forums and we want to keep the conversation on track. However, at this point we do not expect any significant delays and hope to announce certification very soon.
Thanks for being patient"
So all you console Terrarian can expect your precious update in, hopefully, the next few days! ^-^
505 Games is still currently focused on releasing the bug fix for Console versions so expect a further delay in the release of the Hard mode update. We do not have a confirmed date for the update as of now.
Poll of the Week
This week we're gonna do a classic "What's your favorite biome" poll. Credit for the poll goes to SilverHexxitFights.

This week we have two submissions! One from Squazzil and another from Koburo. The first is Squazz's amazing Halloween themed Pumpkin home for the NPCs. The next is Koburo's awesome biosphere type home. Make sure to let these builders know that you love their amazing constructions! :D
Exclusive interview with a member of this Wiki
TerrariamcSwaggins: Hey Tech, you seem like a cool dude, would you mind if I interviewed you for the Terrarian Bugle?
TerrariamcSwaggins: Awesome, thanks man! First question, What is your favorite boss in Terraria and why?
Techman129: Ummm, Would Frost Moon bosses count?
Techman129: Umm, then probably the Ice Queen, or Plantera. Most likely because they have different attacks, once I heard about those bosses, I thought it would be something lame, but Andrew surprised me! (ONCE AGAIN!) XD
TerrariamcSwaggins: XD I agree, both of those bosses are amazing. Next question, about how long have you played Terraria for?
Techman129: Like, when I bought it? Or in game hours?
TerrariamcSwaggins: When you bought it.
Techman129: Most likely May 19th of 2012. I got it as a gift from one of my friends.
TerrariamcSwaggins: Ah, so roughly 2 years?
Techman129: Yep. 433 Total hours, to be exact (according to Steam) =3
TerrariamcSwaggins: Alright, awesome. Next question, what is your choice of weapons and Armor?
Techman129: Well, I'm a mage+half melee so I have Spectre armor (I have both the mask and Hood) which I switch between whenever I need it. I like to use the:
Mystic Blizzard Staff
Demonic North Pole
Godly Scourge of the Corruptor
Mythical Inferno Fork
Masterful Rainbow Gun
TerrariamcSwaggins: Woah, that's awesome.
Techman129: And a Rod of Discord.
TerrariamcSwaggins: Is that all? 0_0
TerrariamcSwaggins: Amazing, final question, what do you like most about Terraria?
Techman129: Well, I the amount of items, I like the community, *cough* Koburo*cough*, the amount of bosses and finally, I love the stuff you do to interview people! Kudos to you sir!
TerrariamcSwaggins: Haha, Thanks for the interview!
