    Holy Potato Event
    This event can be said to be on par in terms of difficulty with the Lunar Events. The sun and moon will be replaced with a glowing potato with a halo on top and a dark violet hue potato respectively should the event be activated in said times. If a rain is occuring at the time, potatos will constantly fall instead of regular rain. Like other summon events, this cancles any event currently happening.

    The event progresses at a daily/nightly manner. When the day or night ends, and you fail to meet the requirements, the score will restart to zero, and will proceed to continue until you have succesfully defeated said event, or it expires after 1 Ingame week.
    Points before boss is summoned: 100

    Always have cursed inferno? That seems a bit, extreme. Good idea, but I cant tell if this is hardmode or prehardmode. The weapons make me think prehardmode, but the armor says turtle tier. You might want to fix this.

    I know. Its meant to be hardmode, but all this is accessible prehardmode. I thought that potatos are very rare, and even then, takes time to craft the whole set, you might as well better spend your time progressing into hardmode than working on farming potatos over and over.

    DarkWolf658 Terrarian

    Still, if some is lucky enough... they can get this straight out and cheese everything. You might want to remove the cursed inferno all the time, and make it a random chance of occurring every minute. (25%)

    The chance of getting a potato from a mob is literally 1/100,000.
    If RGN plays well on them, well lucky then. Ive put enough thought that by the time you have gotten a potato, you have probably defeated the plantera with the same time you have put into getting the potato. If people still thinks its an easy way to cheese prehardmode, i might make this one available only in hardmode then. They are rare for a reason.
    About the cursed inferno, I just checked it up. I was thinking of the Ichor Debuff. My misake on that part, and im changing it.

    Rarity does not define power. No support.

    Also, it generally just doesn't seem canon to terraria's style.

    What... What Is This? Just Potato? `-_-

    I See No Reason To Lend My Support. I Probably Should Word This Better But I Still Don't Know How...

    Potatoes, huh? Alright then...

    The thing about randomness is that you can't predict it, one person could get extremely lucky and get the rare drop in the first 10 minutes while someone else could beat the entire game 5 times and not even know that the rare drop exists.

    Edit: wait, hold on. How do I eat a potato if right click throws it and left click plants it?

    Actually, thats the thing. I wanted it to be unpredictable, to make it such an exciting find. If people really have a problem with it, ill just increase the drop rate and make it only available for hardmode, but since the purity is going to be overtaken by hallow and negative biomes, finding potatos given enough time, will be hard (unless a farm is made, oviously)

    Anyways, honestly, i dont really know how PC works. I only play the mobile version :3
    Prpbably by merely double clicking the item allows you to eat it?
     
  13. DarkWolf658

    DarkWolf658 Terrarian

    Heres a thought, how about we make it dropped by Red Devils or Lava Bats after Plantera and change rarity to 5%? Then the tooltip can be: "It sure is hot!"

    This solves the cheese the game issue, and also the rarity issue.
