Terraria: A Guide to Not Getting Your Guts Ripped Out by Zombies
A Guide For People Beginning to Play Terraria.
Welcome To Terraria!
After downloading this really awesome game off steam (or, umm “downloading” it for free) you probably have no idea what to do? Getting your guts ripped out every 10 seconds by various evil multicolored slimes? This guide will tell you all you need to survive in Terraria!
First you need to create your character. Choose your gender, body clothes, and hair style. Make your character look awesome because after you create it you can’t change it later without the use of other programs.
I recommend choosing softcore, where when you die you lose half your money, for your first account because you don’t lose all your items you took 20+ hours getting, leading to much less rage and smashed computer screens.
After that choose your world size. I recommend small because it takes less time to reach the interesting parts of the map like the dungeon, hell, and other places.
Your character can travel between worlds, for example if you make a world called Tacoland and another world named Pizzaland, if you log into either world you will keep all your stuff, health, and mp. You can never run out of resources because you can always create another world! Also this lets your friends come into your world and help you build stuff.
You Spawn in a happy little forest place with trees and tiny cute jumping slimes that will try to kill you. Also there’s an annoying almost useless person that will tell you tutorial stuff about Terraria. Right click him to talk to him. He’s really stupid and will do nothing to stop evil monsters from ripping his head off. In your inventory you have a copper shortsword, a copper axe, and a copper pickaxe. select tools with the number shown at the top or scroll through your hotbar with the mousewheel. To access your inventory use the escape key.
Start by taking your copper axe that you somehow found in your backpack and start chopping those tress. Make sure you hit the bottom trunk because if you chop the middle of the tree only half of the tree will be chopped down. Chop those trees until you have a decent amount of wood
While your doing this, slimes might spawn near you. Go off and stab them with your pathetically weak and almost useless sword. You can also use your pickaxe instead, because it slashes instead of stabbing which makes it much easier to hit things. They will drop gel which is used for torches, and it’s much easier to kill things in the dark if you can see them.
