505 games states:

"Hi Terrarians,

Here is the latest on the patch for the 1.2 issues on consoles:

We are near completion of the submission phase to Microsoft and Sony and are just waiting on one last item for 100% confirmation. 'However, as it stands, we are very confident in saying that the patch will likely be approved and released next week.' Until we get that confirmation, we cannot give a specific date, but all signs at the moment point towards a release during that window.

To view the issues that have been address in this patch, please visit:

Thanks so much for your patience and we hope to get everyone exploring as soon as possible!"

So hopefully next week is the week of the bug fix. 0_0


No news here other than now that 505 games are nearly finished with the bug fix we can (hopefully) expect them to begin work on the Hard Mode update. Hopefully. ;-;

Exclusive interview with a member of this Wiki

This week, I got to interview SilverHexxitFights who is a fellow Chat Moderator and dedicated editor on this wiki.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Alright, so we'll start off simple. What is your favorite boss and why?

SilverHexxitFights: Favorite boss? I'd have to say The Twins. I love the Retro style combat!

TerrariamcSwaggins: True, I hate the Twins. ;-; What is your favorite weapon, preferred gear, and main class?

SilverHexxitFights: Honestly, I am a mage kinda guy. I like, interestingly, the Frostspark Boots over Wings. For armor, Spectre regen set. Probably Inferno Fork, Razorblade Typhoon or Shadowbeam Staff is my favorite weapon.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Awesome. Next question. How long have you been playing Terraria for?

SilverHexxitFights: I started out in mid-2012. Transferred to a new computer in mid-2013, so stopped until I could figure out to get it on Mac.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Hm, so about 1 year and a few months?

SilverHexxitFights: About.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Alright, last question. What is your favorite biome and why?

SilverHexxitFights: Favorite biome… Sky counts? Actually, never mind, Underworld is probably my favorite. The demons… the loot… the souls burning and screaming… yep, it's cheery.

TerrariamcSwaggins: (O)_(O) Well, that about wraps it up, thanks!

SilverHexxitFights: Okeydoke! Thanks for having me!

Weekly Special

The Terraria Fan Ideas wiki presents.........The Mother Board!

Credit for the sprite and a basic set up of the idea goes to zoomo and credit for the reformation of the idea goes to me and Fan Ideas wiki. Both can be viewed here:

And here:

And now, let us delve into this amazing idea...

The Motherboard stage 2
The Motherboard
The Mother Board is the Hard Mode version of the Brain of Cthulhu. It is summoned by using the Mechanical Brain which is crafted with 6 Vertebrae, 6 Souls of Night, and 5 Iron/Lead Bars at Mythril Anvil. When summoned a message appears saying: "Your entire body goes numb..." It has 25,000 {{HP, 30 melee damage, 45 ranged damage and 16 defense.

First stage In the first stage, Mother Board will float and teleport like the Brain of Cthulhu. However, it will also spawn a Signal Drone every 6 seconds until there are 25 of them. (eg: if you kill 3 then it will make 3 to replace them.) Finally every few seconds it will fire a laser beam much like the ones that are shot by the Necromancer, the difference being that the laser connects to each of the Signal Drones.

Second stage The Mother Board goes into stage two when when it reachs 12,500 HP. Its stats also change to 40 melee damage, 50 ranged damage, and 20 defense. In the second stage it no longer spawns Signal Drones. However 4 clamps appear (one out of each of the 4 black cord things on the bottom of its head) which act much like Plantera's tentacles. Due to the fact that there are no Drones the lasers it shoots just go straight like the Heat Ray, however, it shoots the laser much more frequently and in random directions. As for how Motherboard moves; it will still teleport near the player, but instead of rushing at them it will move away.

Drop descriptions, items, and monsters

Mechanical Brain
The Mechanical Brain is used to summon the Mother Board boss. It is crafted with 6 Vertebrae, 6 Souls of Night, and 5 Iron/Lead Bars at Mythril Anvil. It can also be found rarely in Shadow Chests. The boss can only be successfully summoned at night while in a Crimson cavern; if the brain is used during the day nothing will happen and it will not be consumed.

Signal Drone
The Signal Drone is an enemy spawned every six seconds by the Mother Board. It floats in the air opposite to the other Signal Drones around the Motherboard (eg: if there are 4 they will each move around the Motherboard one left, one right, one up, and one down.) They will attempt to stay near the Motherboard but will override that to move away if the player gets too close. Finally, when and if the player is within 20 blocks of them, they will fire a laser which inflicts high knockback while dealing low damage. Each Signal Drone has 120 HP, inflicts 20 melee damage or 8 ranged damage, and has 20 defense.


  • When Mother Board goes into stage two all of them explode.


  • Heart (100%)

Motherboard Trophy
The Mother Board Trophy is a trophy dropped by the Mother Board. It appears to be part of the bosses' complex technology, mounted on a wooden plaque. It can be placed on a wall similar to a painting.

The Chainsword is a sword that has a small chance of dropping from the Mother Board.


This weapon attacks like a chainsaw, however, it can get more prefixes than chainsaws as it can have both its speed and knockback changed.


  • 55 melee damage
  • Fast speed
  • Very Weak knockback
  • Tooltip: 'It looks like a sword, but it's actually a saw! Buy yours today!'


  • When swung, the Chainsword has an average chance of inflicting the "Bleeding" Debuff.

The Teslapack is an accessory dropped by the Mother Board. When worn it shoots a laser much like that of the Heat Ray which does not pierce at nearby enemies. The laser does 25 damage and causes no knockback.

  • Tooltip: 'Zaps your foes occasionally when worn!'


  • It does not consume mana and the damage it deals is classified as minion damage.
