Hello Terrarians! Welcome to the eighth issue of The Terrarian Bugle! I apologize for my lack of this issue last week. I was pretty busy with end of the year exams and other things in real life. But we're completely ready for this week so let's get right to it! Today we're going to check out the latest update info, some of the normal weekly events, and another Terraria Fan Ideas Wiki idea, I hope you're excited to see it! Thanks for reading and enjoy! :D

Update Info


The developers have just recently released a spoiler of the highly anticipated Lunar Update! It features some work in progress sprites, here's what they say:

"We feel that we should give a life sign about 1.3 for you guys, but we really don't want to spoil too much. As probably mentioned before, much stuff from 1.3 (mostly sprites) were already done some months ago,but we are of course making much more and everything is being progressively added to the game.

We've been discussing some concepts and ideas for the main event (the foretold "Lunar"), and the programmers have been adding a big ammount of things from a side event that will also be present on the next update. Don't expect it to be just a single thing!

And for those who are hunger for a more solid spoiler... I was messing around with some sprite concepts for the main event and decided to show them. Check them bellow:


And I didn't even mentioned the Bo... oh nothing, you guys will see that. And probably scream in despair.

That's it for now but we hope to maintain you guys informed of the progress. Thank you so much for all the support!

Exclusive interview with a member of this Wiki

Well, I totally forgot about the interview 'til a few minutes before going live, luckily 652Graystripe happened to join the chat and save my skin. Here's the interview! TerrariamcSwaggins: Hi, Gray! You have been chosen to be interviewed for the Bugle! Will you cooperate?

652Graystripe: Sure.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Alright, first question, what is your favorite Boss and why?

652Graystripe: Hmm… I'd have to say my favorite boss is Plantera. The style is amazing, not related in any way to any boss I've ever faced. And I like the enrage factor; keeps it from following the Brain of Cthulhu.

TerrariamcSwaggins: I agree, Plantera seems to be a fan favorite!

652Graystripe: Of course, it was the hardest boss before Fishface.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Yep, was. Next question. About how long have you played Terraria for?

652Graystripe: Oh, I'd say I'm a newbie. Started in… December?

TerrariamcSwaggins: So about 5-6 months, right?

652Graystripe: Yeah.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Perfect! Next question. What is the one boss you were the most unprepared for?

652Graystripe: Hmm… Destroyer. I fought it two nights after beating the Wall, and it wrecked me five times. I have recently managed to beat it, though.

TerrariamcSwaggins: Haha, I guess you definitely underestimated him then, eh? Final question. What is your favorite biome and why?

652Graystripe: Favorite biome… favorite biome… does Dungeon or Jungle Temple count?

TerrariamcSwaggins: Sure.

652Graystripe: Okay, then Dungeon. Loot, monsters, challenge!

TerrariamcSwaggins: Alrighty, that wraps it up!

652Graystripe: Well, it was a pleasure being interviewed, mcSwaggins. Hope this Bugle turns out great!

TerrariamcSwaggins: I believe it shall, thanks!

Weekly Special

The Terraria Fan Ideas wiki presents.........Roc!

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 begin our journey into the desert to find the great Roc himself...

The Roc is a miniboss that may spawn in the Desert Biome. He has a 3% chance of spawning upon entering a Desert Biome in Hard Mode. During the fight he flies around a like a Vulture and periodically swoops down at the player. He is able to travel through blocks so when he swoops down, he'll fly underground momentarily before coming back up. The other way he attacks is by charging across the screen much like the Queen Bee while breathing sand particles like Spazmatism's cursed flames. He has 3,000 HP, 30 melee damage, 42 ranged damage and 50 defense.

Drop descriptions, items, and monsters

Magic Hourglass
The Magic Hourglass is an accessory dropped by Roc or the Time Stomper. When worn, it slows all time.

Dune Armor Male
The Dune Armor is an Hard Mode armor that is dropped from Roc. It is a great armor for melee players.
  • Dune Helm
    Dune Helm: 9 defense, +15% increased ranged/melee damage, +10% not to consume ammo, +10% melee attack speed.
  • Dune Chestplate
    Dune Mantle: 17 defense, +13% increased ranged/melee critical chance, +13% melee/ranged attack speed.
  • Dune Pants
    Dune Leggings: 10 defense, +10% jump height, +10% movement speed.
Should this be added to Terraria
