Ocean Mirror (Magic Mirror from fishing)

    Whenever we start a new world, there are three key items that we always look for: the [​IMG] Magic Mirror, the [​IMG] Cloud in a Bottle, and the [​IMG] Hermés Boots. Problem is, it's not guaranteed that these items will appear in chests. Fortunately, two out of the three of these items can be obtained via fishing. These items would be the [​IMG] Sailfish Boots and the [​IMG] Tsunami in a Bottle. The Magic Mirror, however, cannot be obtained via fishing.
    I can't see a reason why not, so I present to you...

    (I don't have a sprite, unfortunately, but I don't think I'll need one.)

    The idea is simple: It's a variation of the Magic Mirror that you can get from fishing.
    Just like the Sailfish Boots and the Tsunami in a Bottle, it would have a 2.5% chance to be obtained from [​IMG] Wooden Crates, and a 5% chance to be obtained from [​IMG] Iron Crates.
    It's a simple concept, but I think it'd be a great addition. Let me know what you guys think!

    The odds that your entire world will not contain all of those items are so low that it is virtually impossible.

    It's happened. Way too often. Trust me.
    Even then, it'd still be nice to have.
    EDIT: Let's not forget multiplayer worlds.

    Give me a seed that has no magic mirror or ice mirror in the entire world please.

    While I have no seed right now, I once did a mage playthrough on my Xbox One and there was no magic mirror in the world at all.
    I also should've mentioned multiplayer. The chances that the world will provide these accessories for two players are slim.

    I think this is an interesting idea!
    I don't really see why we have fishing versions of cloud in a bottle and Hermes boots, yet we do, so I don't see why there can't be one for the magic mirror if the other two exists as fishing loot.

    In my first terraria world, i didn't find a magic mirror until hardmode. And then i died. In mediumcore. And this was before recall potions existed. Support!

    As I don't think it's 100% needed, it only makes sense.

    There is no way there were not 2 mirrors in that world. Or even 10. The cavern layer is far too large to allow that possibility.

    Never had this problem since I usually a about 20 thousand of them in a chest. It's fine I suppose, but once you get one, it's kinda annoying as it's making other drops rarer.

    It can happen though, and that is still a problem. A more likely scenario is that they do spawn, but happen to be tucked away in a place that means they are acquired far far later than intended (ie in hardmode).

    It doesnt hurt to add something else to crates.

    I havn't found this much of an issue since that Recall potions are a thing. But it wouldn't hurt to give them some renewability for a big multiplayer session.

    I'm genuinely not sure it can happen, though. There have to be some kind of parameters on the generation.

    Recall potions can substitute for this, plus they can be crafted

    Except who would willingly make and use recall potions? Too much of a hassle, and way too many resources used if you want them to last a lifetime.
    (Also that world was created before recall potions were on console)

    Support for this idea. It would just seem negligible if they were to add important Golden Chest items to the Fishing loot pool like the Cloud in a Bottle and Hermes' Boots while leaving out the Magic Mirror.
