PC Blue Moons

Ghostly!

Long time since Ive posted a thread about anything, i have had a thread about this before but instead i want to to fresh and make it have some more substance. So lets get to it.

BLUE MOONS
As the title suggests its a event, unlike Blood moons i really wanted it to be magical and something pretty polar opposite of its counterpart. However there will be mobs.
When Blue Moons rise your greeted with " A Blue Moon has risen" from there on bunnies spawn at a much faster rate and noticing zombies and slimes are non-existent. Then...what do you know when the moon reaches it apex a text shows " The rabbits are acting strange", Those fluffy dreams become horrid nightmares. Ill just let my monster stats do the talking.
Blue moons have a 1/30 chance to happen each night.

That's a fantastic idea! I do like how the blood moon and the solar eclipse add a little variety to the game, but I've always thought that they were a bit obnoxious and monotonous, especially since they're so common. I've been thinking that they should make those events a bit more rare, leaving room to squeeze in some unique and entertaining ideas.

In a game I've been programming, I'm making fun of the name "blue moon" (because the moon isn't really blue) by having every single color of moon, except for blue. :p

My only gripe with this event is that it seems magic-based (which isn't necessarily a problem), yet the armor you get from it is for melee players? Is that a mistake or an attempt to diversify the event?

I think this would be a nice opportunity for an armor that's for Melee/Magic players, akin to Frost Armor or Forbidden Armor. Like if the armor gives Magic Stats as well, and if there's 1-2 melee weapons dropped from this event, then that could do it

You should make it so that the Jabberwocky's head does much more damage but has lowered or no defense, like many other worm type enemies. Also, the Moon Stone is already an item, maybe rename it to Moonfire or something cool? I'd also say lower the drop rate for the Bunny mount but that's your choice, not mine :happy: Also, maybe nerfing the Seraph Armor's set bonus to having a 15 second cooldown seems less strong, but I'm no expert in balancing. I don't care if you take my suggestions into account, but either way this is a really cool suggestion!

This is a really neat idea. I definitely approve of a mystical moon event. (All things considered Terraria is sorta limited on mystical things.) I also really like the Alice theme, (which is public domain and therefore free game) and the rabbit in the moon theme. I'll drop a few ideas which you can incorporate if you see fit, otherwise I really like it. (Props for finding a second method for fuzzy carrot to be obtained.)

Vorpal Blade - A weapon of some kind, slayer of the Jabberwock (Alice)
Rice/Marshmallow Treats - Food item, Monster Carrot's punishment for being bad in Dragon Ball (The rabbit in the moon)
Hobby Horse - A hammer type weapon, Allusion to American Mcgee's Alice Return to Madness (Alice)

If you want to be cheeky you can add something alluding to Fran "I swear I'm not Alice, don't sue me" Bow.

A perfect flavor text for the Blue Moon.
Once in a blue moon, mythical creatures come out to play.

I feel like the Blue Moon would make a great counterpart to the Solar Eclipse where instead of famous movie monsters and such, the Blue Moon focuses on the mythical creatures of the world. Bigfoot, Dover Demon, etc.
