Greetings, Members of Terraria Community Forums!

Today the TCF Staff have an important announcement. Starting this month and continuing over the next few months we are going to begin the process of cleaning up the various Social Groups sections of the forum: Non-Terraria Discussion Groups, Terraria Discussion Groups, Terraria Clans & Server Groups, and Forum Roleplay - Terraria and Non-Terraria.

This house cleaning is accompanied by an update to the Terraria Social Groups: Rules & Guidelines thread that seeks to draw a clearer line about what types of groups are and aren't allowed here on the forum. If you are or plan to be the owner or moderator of a group, then it is highly recommended that you read the linked thread. Our primary goal with both the house cleaning and the rule update is to bring the groups and the content they contain more in line with the forum as a whole.


Why is this happening now?

This is something that has been on the back burner for quite a while now and has taken some time to get organized. The main catalyst behind this plan is the overwhelming number of groups that are empty, are inactive, or were created with the - most likely unintentional - purpose of side-stepping the general rules of the forum. Our hope is that performing this pruning will make it easier for members to find groups of interest to them and will allow the...

Hello Terrarians!

As many of you know, the upcoming cross over with Dungeon Defenders II will bring enemies, weapons, vanity, tower defense and more to Terraria! On the side of the cross over, Dungeon Defenders II players get an awesome new hero! Our beloved Dryad will continue her lifelong battle against the corruption in Etheria! Check out her defenses and abilities below and for a complete list of the content coming to Dungeon Defenders II, check out this announcement post on dungeondefenders.com. It has been a great experience to collaborate with the amazing Trendy team, and with less than a week before launch, we are super stoked to see the Dryad in action!



The Dungeon Defenders II and Terraria 1.3.4 updates both launch November 15th. To learn more about Dungeon Defenders II, visit their Steam page. Let us know what you think about the upcoming cross over below. As always, thanks for your support! ​
Greetings, Terrarians!

A few weeks ago, we shared the outline of a mysterious shape to you all - a revelation which has led to much speculation, as we have come to love and expect from our dedicated community! As revealed via PC Gamer yesterday, this mysterious object is indeed what some of you guessed: a Portal between Terraria and Etheria! A rip in the fabric of space and time itself has pulled enemies, weapons, and more from Etheria into Terraria...and sent our beloved Dryad on a dangerous excursion to save Etheria from some uniquely Terrarian foes!

This will be no ordinary event, as the Etherians have brought all new game mechanics - for both you and your foes alike - to bear as they endlessly seek to destroy all that is in their path. This will challenge Terrarians to devise new strategic approaches if they hope to succeed in thwarting these bloodthirsty invaders.

For Dungeon Defenders 2 players, an equally powerful menace will invade their peaceful realm. Foes familiar to Terrarians seek to corrupt all that they touch, and only through a mix of smart strategy and honed skills will heroes be able to keep the land pure! Fortunately, the Portal also brought with it a new hero - an ancient guardian of nature and purity itself: The Dryad! Check out the news post on dungeondefenders.com for a complete list of the content coming to Dungeon Defenders 2! ​


We will have more to share in the...​
