Should I?
I mean i dont fell about doing every boss on diffrent world because i want the treasure bags but im on normal.
Im kinda new i only beaten eye of clutchu and king slime

I got enchanted sword , ancient shadow set , a musket that deals like 45 dmg per bullet and it shoots like 2 bullets per secound
a slime mount ,

The loot on extreme and master is very good , the treasure bags are epic ,

should i delete this world and make new one on same seed then rebuild everything? , changing files prob will bug some parts in the game so i dont want to do that

Btw i got almost 10 hours playtime

Thats from other worlds too

Play as normal all the way through first, and build up your skill normal mode before attempting expert and especially master. Both expert and master are much more difficult. Even with end game armour, some master mode enemies can pretty much one hit kill you.

The items from expert mode treasure bags are very useful, but won't make a lot of difference if you don't have the experience with fighting each boss.

10 hours isn't a lot of experience (I have hundreds of hours, and still find expert/master challenging) and have only experienced two bosses. Play the game as normal, learn as much as you can for now, and then take that experience to an expert world later on.

You can have more than one world, so you can make an expert one and have a try, but you will struggle, and die, and die, and die. A lot lol.

Take your time, and enjoy the experience.

Expert Mode is not something you should do on a first playthrough, it's daunting even when you're experienced. Finish the game on Normal first, then try Expert sometime after. The new loot helps keep things fresh.

I strongly recommend against that.

Mediumcore means you will drop all your money and ALL your items when you die. You will have to go and retrieve them with essentially no armour or weapons unless you have spares at your base.

Expert mode is not balanced. Enemies pretty much have twice the health and deal twice the damage. They take less knock back as well. Enemies will also run off with the money you drop.

Yes and thats how it should be , you actually need to get an item that only does like 2 more dmg ,
i go with classic and expert , i can 1 tap everything with bad gear on normal ,

It's not as simple as that. You won't even be able to one hit kill a zombie in expert mode. You'll barely be able to one hit kill a blue slime with a musket.

Also, Terraria is not like minecraft. If you die and drop all your items, you have to go and retrieve them before you leave the world or your items will be permanently lost. You cannot change to passive mode to make it easier either.

Dropping your items on the surface near spawn is no bother. Dropping all your armour, weapons and accessories in the underground jungle is an entirely different matter.

Well, I guess as I can't convince you, all I can say is good luck.

Once piece of advice: don't rage quit if you die. You will lose all your items in mediumcore. Permanently.

What's the hurry with getting end game items? It'll spoil the experience doing that.

"Honestly, I only want a worm scarf. Hmm maybe I'll just take a Zenith too." 30 minutes later you've beaten every boss and the game gets boring.

Well, you have to have some self-restraint and only take items you would have got, at this stage in the game like a lava charm, no more grinding!

It's long and challenging as it is. 10 hours experience is less than I've spent farming for just the Rod of Discord. You haven't even experienced hard mode yet.

I had to wait for someone else to post before I could post this.

This is true. However, expert items are not just end game, they're end game plus. Getting them before even defeating Skeletron is game changing, not just a little help getting something you already have the ability to get yourself.

Plus a willingness to use a free item server already shows a certain lack of self-restraint. So seeing a stack of chlorophyte next to those 50 hellstone bars you need is going to be a big temptation. And once someone takes a lesser thing, invariably they'll go for the bigger things the next time.

I played like hour on extreme its so fun lmao i cant even get out of my house because 2 zombies can 1 tap me
Its very funny and challanging but i didint played on medium core cuz like yeah.
Extreme mode with classic character is good for me
master mode is not worth it , i will prob make a world on master later , get the trophies , delete it and play on my extreme.

Skeletron Prime
Yeah, mediumcore is too much for a new player lol. I don't even play on mediumcore, and I have been playing for years. I have neither the time to retrieve my items, or the patience.

Don't forget, you can have more than one world. It won't cause bugs at all. There's nothing to stop you having a normal world to stock up. And practice later game enemies who are much harder.

Mediumcore is such an outdated mechanic and really isn't designed for how far Terraria has come, especially when items can take many hours to obtain. Also I wouldn't bother with Master mode as it's a joke.

That's the complete opposite definition of fun for me, when I play games I want to actually play them and not be stuck in one spot unable to do anything.

At least Oinkiness has Solar Eclipses to look forward too - that'll really be fun. My first one, in a normal world, I spent the entire day getting spawn killed. I couldn't even make it to the nurse.
