Post the worst luck you have every had in Terraria here.

Sort of a Good/Bad luck situation. I get all the rare stuff from chests, but never the useful, common stuff, like cloud in a bottle, until they become useless. Or, I don't get a mirror until hardmode. I can get a million shoe spikes (useful, but no point in getting more), but no Extractinators.

Also, so many times have I gotten triggered from getting 14 gems early game. 1 away from the friggin hook. AARRGGHH!
Starting out. Going down into a cave. 2 coin portals. Then immediately an explosive trap. Keep going down (because I was an idiot), boulder trap. Dies again. Comes down to retrieve the coins, end up in marble biome b/c black slime knocked me down (deep enough so there's lava), and then get speared by a hoplite. Out of the 10 gold I could've got, I only made it out with 3 for some odd reason.
World genoration likes to stick it up my bum for some reason. my spawn is always getting hugged by corruption/crimson, and whenever i try to go into a cave, its this huge cavern which kills me by fall damage. I can't even play the damn thing.
The slimy saddle has a drop rate of 25% from King Slime, right?
So I decided to get one in one of my mobile playthrough, and began to farm King Slime.
10-20 kills later, I still havent gotten it. Then, I defeated king slime for the literal first time on PC and GOT IT.
Not like it matters now, since I have the UFO, but really game.

This thread is a bit dead.
1. Got killed by a cnidrion (calamity mod) with 1 HP.
2. 2 Years ago, Almost reached the 15th wave in the Frost moon, just needed an enemy, when i was about to kill one, it becomes day.
3. Never get keys when i farm then, when I don't I literally get them randomly(got 3 Jungle keys while mining chlorophite in the jungle).
4. Killed Duke fishron like 10-15 times, I'm a ranger, Got everything except Tsunami and fishron wings.
I once got a Blood Moon followed by a Solar Eclipse (that dropped nothing of value), and I do believe it was followed by another Blood Moon.
It was clumsiness rather than bad luck, but my post-game character's most recent death was by falling. I was working on a build after buying some stuff, went to dive down from the skybridge, then just as I splatted against the ground I realized I swapped my wings with a greedy ring and forgot to swap them back... Quite an ironic death, actually :p
As for actual unluck... Well, the fact that I farmed so many martian invasion events and still unable to get the Brain Scrambler mount, even when making sure I target the Scutlix gunner first.

Cell phone
No matter how many quests I do, nothing. That stupid little kid cheat angler. 😡
I've gotten everything else, TWICE! But no angler quest items. I would love to have the cell phone, it just isn't worth it! You'll get 'supreme helper minion' before you get that stupid item. 😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠
Fighting skeletron prime and it becomes day,luckily,i kill him,but then an solar eclipse appears and a mothron killed me,and the other killed all my npcs.

I had a blood moon every night for 3 nights in a row, and there was at least 1 solar eclipse in there. Some may have been summoned by me, i don;t remember.
My worst luck is that on my mobile device I have been playing for the longest time, found 12 underground houses, and still don’t have a magic mirror!!
I was farming moon lord with the last prism, got a kill in 30 seconds, a record for me, then died to a harpy feather during the death animation, meaning I didn't get the drops.
1. I found an Arkalis and played for about 30 minutes and when I logged on the next day it was gone `😢
2. I was fighting wall of flesh and he was at 100hp and then a hellbat killed me
3. I had a blood moon for 4 nights in a row (I think it was a glitch because there is no way)
Had companion cube on first travelling merchant, and after that just before hardmode and wasnt able to afford it
On one 1.3 mobile melee playthrough, I decided to farm for titan glove. I killed more than 20 mimics and got everything else other than a titan glove. And here I thought that they all got the SAME chance of being dropped. Another time, I tried to farm for turtle shells. Despite the yelets have a 0.5% chance of being dropped by any enemy and turtle shells having a 5.88% chance (almost 12x as common) of being dropped by giant tortoise. I got WAY more yelets than turtle shells while in the process.
Spoiler: I gave up on that playthrough
Explore the entire underground snow biome and not get the Ice skates, in a medium size world.
At this point I didn't even bothered with Lava charm, water walking+obsidian skin potions ftw.
__Literally__ every single update, on every single system (android mobile, xbox, PC), On my first world/playthrough of that update, my first meteor spawns inside/next to the dungeon entrance, or on a sky island. 7 times so far. 1.4 was a dungeon world.... a large world without a single living tree(low/no gnomes) or lava charm- Cave dived 4 large worlds for nearly 8 total hours (with pre-hardmode gear) looking for one before I decided I'd spent enough time, I deserved it, and gave myself one from a 1.3 world. Same for rod of discord in 1.4 Over 2500 chaos elemental kills, No drop. even went so far as to build a specific chaos elemental trap which teleported all other mobs outside spawn zone to despawn them... slightly faster than killing the extra enemies. 3 hours of Non-afk farming, 2500 kills, 0 rods. (btw, really hate how they made chaos elementals not spawn as often if you aren't actively moving... rod farm was easy in 1.3)

881 plantera kills on mobile before I got the axe. I don't think I ever played mobile after that day. whole jungle was a plantera bulb spawning surface. 20-30 plantera kills a day for more than a month. PLEASE GIVE US A CRAFTABLE SPAWNER!!!!!!!!!!! it's the only boss (that matters) that doesnt have a spawner.
