Eye of Cthulhu
Expert mode is insanely hard for a reason, people keep saying Terraria is too easy.
I once said Dark Souls was "too hard", now I can beat it without (almost) dying once. Nothing is "too hard" if you have patience and perseverance.
I've only done a tiny bit of HM and I was lucky to get a yo-yo from the skeleton merchant on day 1. Probably very lucky.
I didn't think Pre-hardmode was too difficult, not once you get use to it.
I'm not looking forward to level scaling in HM, that just annoys me, you should know your enemy and have a sense of progression I reckon, having mobs stay at my level the entire time isn't going to be fun.
Expert mode is, as it states, for experts. If you're not up to the challenge of scaling-with-your-progression mobs, then so be it. By hardmode, green slimes won't die to a swing of a Terra Blade. You have to accept that Expert mode is mean't to be challenging, not just when fighting bosses. If you weren't up for the challenge, you shouldn't have tried it.
Also, I'm not trying to say you're bad or anything. I die all the time to regular mobs in expert. Everyone does. Especially since, as I stated, mobs scale with your progression. When hardmode starts, pre-hardmode mobs get stronger. After Plantera (I believe, not 100% sure), all mobs get another boost. It makes the game less stale.
Skeletron is harder than WoF. Trust me. Molten armor is a must, as well as potions, and at least a small arena with potential for high mobility.
And the worm scarf is arguably the best expert mode drop. Anyone who does not have it in expert mode, obviously is having a challenge.
Minishark is essentially useless in that fight. If you can, search the underworld for a Hellwing Bow. That will help both with skeletron and WoF.I have molten armor, and the worm scarf. I also use Minishark, Beam Sword, Imp Staff, and Molten Fury. I have plenty of room for mobility, and I almost beat him last night, but I got hit too many times by his homing skulls.
As for WoF, there is so much stuff in my way that I either need to clear out of the way, or dodge(going both directions. That I'm having a hard time, despite having Lava Waders, Lightning Boots, and a Cloud in a Balloon for mobility.

You need a hellbridge. And to clear out a path so you can jump and run while shooting backwards. You can't beat him without it. As for speed, I'd recommend fishing until the Angler hands over a Fuzzy Carrot. The bunny mount is fast enough to outrun WoF.
Don't I need the shadow key to get that though? I have to beat Skeletron first to get one of those. Which I haven't done yet.
With Lava Waders I thought I wouldn't need a bridge that much as long as I cleared out most of what would block my movement. Turned out I was massively wrong on that. I've been fishing more recently, so I'll try out your suggestion.
Oh, right. For some reason I thought I had it before skeletron >.< Don't hurt me. Anyways, since that's not an option, make sure you take down both the arms around the same time to "skip" the homing skulls phase. After that, remain mobile, and don't stop shooting at his head. His spin attack is lethal, if you're hit by it, there's almost no hope of winning.
A hellbridge is the only way I can see of being mobile enough, and the bunny has just enough speed to outrun WoF's fastest speeds.
Nah, the bundle of balloons is completely unnecessary. As long as you have the Cloud in a Balloon and Lightning boots, the bunny mount will work fine. And you can always eject if you need toInteresting. I need to check if the Traveling Merchant sells that one bow in pre-hardmode. That might work.
I was plenty fast, but those lasers got harder and harder to dodge. Of course, I only had the Lightning Boots and Cloud in a Balloon. Maybe I need to make a Bundle of Balloons to dodge effectively. That might help with Skeletron too.

And if the bow you mean is the Pulse Bow, unfortunately no. He does not sell it pre-HM.
In 1.3 it's very effective. Just hit "R" and your mount will poof away, letting you return to normal movement.Never gotten a mount in Terraria before, so I don't know how effective "ejecting" is.
If you don't mind bringing things from HM worlds to pre-HM worlds, then by all means go ahead. I just feel that's a bit cheatsy If you can beat Skeletron before WoF, you should be fine, provided you can find a shadow chest with a Hellwing Bow.Yeah, that's the one, it's also the only thing I could think of that might be powerful enough. Well, other than that Uzi I got before 1.3 came out. I would need to go and grab it from another world, which was mostly played by another character.

The Uzi isn't a HM weapon IIRC. You get it as an extremely rare drop from Man Eaters in the Jungle.
From the wiki: "The Uzi is a HardmodeGun. It fires Bullets at high velocity, with a high rate of fire, and with high damage output. Musket Balls and Silver Bullets shot from this weapon gain the effects (but not damage) of High Velocity Bullets. It has a 1/100 (1%) () 1/200 (.5%) () chance to drop from an Angry Trapper."
Uh that's part of the mob scaling, enemies get stronger if you wear stronger armor so they are always challenging.I do agree expert mode is way too hard. I went onto someone's expert mode. I was endgame. Full Nebula armor. A bat, hits me, 100 damage.
Yes, I understand this is supposed to be a challenge but at least add some logic into it..
I think I'd be better off running into the hardmode jungle with the wooden tier than with full nebula gear at this point. There is no difference anymore.
