  • I know you have already closed the item balancing thread in 1.4.1, but nonetheless I have one well argued suggestion that actually applies to the accessory ballast and may be introduced in v1.4.1.2.
    I know I can wait for the thread to reopen, but I'm afraid I will forget, so I decided to post it here.

    Adding +20 mana to Celestial Cuffs is a very good move, but there is still something wrong with this whole tinkering line. The mage as a class has the second-lowest defense in the game. One of the elements of Magic Cuffs is Shackle, the defense effect of which simply disappears, and instead removes the natural reference and even forces the mage to take damage in order to restore mana faster.

    This is a very uncomfortable situation for a mage, so I think the accessory should get a lot of buff. Should naturally regain a small amount of mana, which increases significantly after taking damage, and should provide +1 defense.

    When I said that there may be 1.4.1.1 changes, I meant adjustments to the changes I already made (Like, if I buffed/nerfed something too far). Probably not going to be making additional changes.
    Why doesn't the Guide have any advice on the Empress of Light or the Slime Queen?

    Also, since Fledgling Wings are available before Hardmode, they shouldn't probably block the Wyvern advice.

    Sorry, I'm just very curious and would like to know as much as possible about the different things in this game, so I ask.
    And it's hard to find a Developer who actually answers the questions, so I was able to go a bit overboard.

    1. Because we didn't add any.
    2. Not a question

    wow Leinfors, that was awesome. I can't think of many other developers who would answer that many questions that fast :eek:
    In 1.4.1, new content will be translated.
    Will the old translations also be corrected?

    We will be doing a further localization pass for 1.4.1 changes, I don't know if it will be in 1.4.1.0 or in a hotfix, its a process with some time turnaround.

    Why are there no short swords made of Hardmode ore, Hallowed Bar, Hellstone Bar, Demonite Bar, Crimtane Bar and Chlorophyte Bar in the game?
    I know that short swords may seem useless, but they are a characteristic element of the game and can be used for all kinds of challenges, maps and jokes.

    I have a few questions in total:
    1. Why does Pinky only have 4 stars in the bestiary when the mimic has 5 stars?
    2. Why in the bestiary there is only a golden and ice mimic entry, and no wooden and shadow entries?
    3. Why are there no Spike Slime and Pirate's Curse entries in the bestiary?
    4. Why doesn't the mimic statue discourage the ice mimic on the underground snow biome?
    Selenian Ω
    Selenian Ω
    ice mimic is different since it has a different loot-pool
    Leinfors
    Leinfors
    1. Red set the Bestiary rarities according to his arcane logic, I do not presume to understand it
    2. Ice Mimics are a different NPC ID than other mimics, and drop their own loot. The other three are the same (Butterflies are also like this, and share an entry)
    3. Spike Slime because its Expert. Pirate's Curse is kinda like a "form" of an enemy.
    4. Dunno.

    Fitting it into Terraria would be a lot of work, doing that would pretty much replace absolutely all of the existing stuff. Sure, seasonal stuff is nice, but these few just didn't fit.

    I think there is a mod for this
    Why was the original form of the Desert Tiger attack abandoned?
    Will this attack appear as a new Summon in 1.4.1?
    And was the Tigger originally a Pre-Hardmode weapon? In trailer 1.4, it was used to fight Wall of Flesh.
    Leinfors

    Yeah but that wasn't its attack, wasn't even a form of its attack. Never was. Just debugging tools. ;)

    Guess that's fair, I forgot it was five years ago. :D

    And that first thing implies there's more in 1.4.1 and further then I expected. We'll see what's changed/added once that arrives, right?

    And mods are a thing too, to be fair. People can always mix things up and add new things Re-Logic couldn't add, such as the Mothron and yoyo changes I mentioned. tMod for 1.4 will be exciting, I'm sure of it. :)

    TBH, it wasn't something I ever really thought about until MrD108 said something, but a Bloodnautilus relic would've been a smexy drop. 😊🍹
    1/2 I know this most likely won't be confirmed or denied until the time arises, but a content update, even a small one, would be nice to have on Terraria's 10th birthday. It really only makes sense considering Terraria's 5th birthday had a substantial content update, even if most of the features were for cosmetic use only. And even though Terraria's last update is confirmed to be around 1.4.1,

    Fair enough, I did have a feeling you wouldn't give a straight response.

    I mean . . . I literally don't know what the answer is, nor is it my call.

    I'm not sure what else you'd want from me . . . "not a straight response" kinda sounds like I'm evading or trying to avoid an answer. I literally don't have one.

    That's sort of what I meant. I guessed you wouldn't be able to answer, in a sense that you couldn't if you wanted to. Not your fault, anyway.

    I tried though, perhaps you could discuss it with the team if or when the time permits.
    I was wondering, with 1.4.1 right around the corner, did you find a solution to Broken Hero Sword & its weapon tiers? 🤔🍹

    Its too complicated to explain in comments, I've elaborated in more detail in the balance thread.

    tl;dr - 1. Solar Eclipse RNG was a problem and 2. TrueEx/NE and Terra Blade being on the same tier was a problem

    I was wondering; what is your personal opinion on whips having stack-able tags to make up for Summoner's low defense? The tag decay time could be increased or decreased depending on how much damage you want the summoner to do.

    Is there any way that the solar pillar can be nerfed in some way shape or form in 1.4.1? It just feels so much harder than the others.
    If, after the 1.4.1 release, the game requires further balance, can we count on 1.4.2?
    Leinfors

    Unlikely.

    Its possible there might be some tweaks in a 1.4.1.X hotfix, however.

    It sounds likely. Also, personally, I would prefer using "summon damage", as most (if not all) summoner weapons use "summon damage", and as of 1.4, the whips obviously don't look like minions.

    Nimbus rods are key

    There’s also an awesome floating box setup that works super well.
    Actually, why are boomerangs in the melee class? Prior to version 1.4, they were a perfect fit for the primary throwing class weapon. Now that the throwable weapons are gone, the boomerangs look like ranged weapons.
    Leinfors
    Leinfors
    I don't know, that goes back to the very origins of Terraria and Red's vision for it. With only a tiny number of exceptions, Ranged is "stuff with consumable ammo", and Boomerangs are not that. They are non-magical, non-consumable weapons, which fits with what Melee is in Terraria.

    He's always felt of it like melee, ever since the first 100 items in the game, and so it has stayed, and none of us internally have felt the need to gut Melee to fun the already OP Ranged class (or Thrown, for that matter, though it was never so powerful).

    Game IPs don't change hands unless a company is doing poorly (IE: about to shutdown due to financial problems) or was bought out by another company. Don't see either happening in the near future.
