I'm in my first playthrough of Terraria. It's been hardly a "blind" playthrough because I'm using the Wiki quit a bit.(there's so much to this game) I'm at the point of WoF to go into hardmode. But I'm doing so prep before that. One of the things is making sure I have my gear sorted out. I'm playing on normal in a small world. I been playing mostly and I have the accessories that I want. I have menacing on all of my accessories for as much DPS that I can do. So here's some questions. Is full menacing good for hardmode? I know warding is great too. Or maybe I should mix menacing with lucky? Does the cost to reforge increase in hardmode? This is why I'm asking. If I figure I want to change my modifiers, then I want to do it when it's the cheapest. While I'm here I'll go ahead and ask another question that has to do with hardmode. Does opening crates from pre-hardmode in hardmode still net you with the new ore/bars? Smashing the alters and worrying about the new spread of crimson isn't what I really want to deal with.( I wish this mechanic was for only expert difficulty) So collecting crates for the hardmode ore/bars is what I'm going to be shooting for.
