    It was made with the philosophy that "If you have not one but two spreading biomes intended to be opposites, why are they not a little more important to the game? Every other game, if it spreads and is evil, it draws a fair amount of attention." So why isn't the Hallow important to the game progression at all?

    Hallow is important. Holy arrows, and Daedalus Stormbow.

    Certainly important. A majority of early HM gear comes from there. The only problem is - it doesn't play an important role in Terraria's progression. Not like the EoW/BoC does, or the Wall of Flesh, or even the Golem.
    P.S. I know it may sound like it, but I have made no bosses. They're overdone.
    To all spriters: do not give up. Find where you would like to be, and be it. And while you're on the road, look back at where you were.
    Heads up, all: the Halloween event has started. Tune in now if you wanna grab yourself some costumes, a Bladed Glove, or a Bloody Machete.
    I feel like I may've crossed a moral event horizon. I've made a penguin/bunny/goldfish farm and am genociding... to sell the banners.

    I'm not joking here, guys. This is maximum-efficiency critter murdering. And it's not even the best way to get money.
    We got three statues going at once for each critter that has a banner and me standing at one end with a solar eruption.
    Current death count (rounded down): 8900 penguins, 5000 bunnies, 3450 bunnies, 250 birds.
    The Space Gun's firing noise drives me batty. I never use Meteor Armor without my sound turned all the way down. Anyone else like this?

    I don't mind the sound at all.

    i hate the sound of hermes boots and the pixie hurt sound.

    I've never understanded the annoyance of the hermes boots, I'm too used with running sounds I believe.
    I forgot to mention to you guys - I unlocked my last achievement in Terraria a while ago. Hallelujah, I win. Everything. I swear.
    I feel a little bad for the Psycho, since arena players won't move around enough to see it. Never seen, bad drop; it's the one we forget.
    Next suggestion is coming along nicely. A clue for you folks: it's something that's been done before, but we plan to do it better.
    Decided to explain why I made the choices I did concerning my Sand Elemental tweak suggestion. (continued)

    That gives the mechs an influence over the game even past their defeat, but perhaps too much of one. I get sick of farming them, you know. That's because their items tend to hold entire sections of the game behind them, such as with the summoners. That problem doesn't arise with my Sand Elemental tweak because it's just gear.

    The second is the Paladin, which - though effective in a different way - is a bit of a poor choice to start out with. Though it's likely that a player will fight a Paladin multiple times, especially if they want the gear, that's false longevity perpetuated by RNG.

    With this method, the Sand Elemental maintains relevance throughout the game without excessive grinding or any massive progression being barred. To boot, she also comes into her own as a real entity, separate from the Ice Golem palette swap. There are those who might pledge themselves to symmetry, but I feel that the game gets more interesting like this.
    Thanks for listening.
