    I decided to raid another jungle temple for traps, so I generated a new world with the latest update. On my way to the temple I found this:

    Behold the elusive Shark statue! :eek: Has anyone else found one yet, or am I first?

    I love how it's white rarity, yet it's rarer than the Enchanted Sword on Console.

    It seems you're first, this may mean that they fixed their spawning.

    I actually forgot it existed in Console until this post.

    It was rare only because of a bug with world gen. On PC 1.2.4.1 it wasn't uncommon (now it's harder to find in 1.3).
    I didn't know they fixed this bug. Makes me really want to read the full changelog...

    As @Oleg34518 said, they probably fixed the spawning.

    I thought that shark statue was only in pc like other unique statues
    I probably have come acrossed one before but I never pick up statues anyway, except useful ones

    The Shark statue were added in the 1.06 update, but due to a bug with world generation it was unobtainable by any legal means. That bug has now been fixed. Perhaps fixed too good as I have found quite a few statues (12 in 4 newly generated worlds). On PC 1.2.4.1 the Shark statue weren't uncommon either, but not THAT common.
    As for their usefulness, I plan to use a Shark statue instead of a Crab statue to make an Invulnerability Machine in my Horseman's blade Arena. It might work better.

    Flame Traps seems to have become uncommon though, I have found 5 traps in 4 worlds.

    Sometimes when fixing one thing, something else breaks. The codebase for console Terraria must be a sorry mess.
    Two steps forward one step back seems to be the order of the day.

    I keep finding these too and found them mostly useless and trashed them. so far I found 2, one in snow, one in jungle on a mostly pristine map. so yea they seem to spawn a lot.

    Shark Statues are not actually useless if used right - they can rack up quite a few Shark Fins, and the occasional Diving Helmet, as well as being a great candidate for a Horseman's Blade pumpkin spawner.

    See I went and threw them away and needed that diving helmet.

    It happens. Well, I guess Ocean farming is your best bet at this point, unless you find another statue.

    No I am not lying, I swear on my Xbox, but I have found THREE shark statues in my ranger world! I currently don't have a picture but I will get one.

    They foxed the spawning the statues - now they've been everywhere.
