    Idea: Add steel into the game and add greatswords
    • Steel will be produced by combining copper/tin and silver/tungsten, unlike real life steel at a funace
    • Will be better than silver but worse than gold
    • Will have no armor
    • Can mine demonite/crimsonite(?) ore
    • All tools will be crafted at an anvil
    Steel Broadsword
    • Damage: 12
    • use time: 20
    • 5 Knockback
    • 8 Steel bars
    Steel Pickaxe
    • Damage: 6
    • Use time: 19
    • Power: 55%
    • 2 Knockback
    • 12 steel bars and 4 wood
    Steel Axe
    • Damage: 7
    • Use time: 25
    • Power: 55%
    • 4.5 Knockback
    • 9 bars and 3 wood
    Steel Hammer
    • Damage: 9
    • Use time: 28
    • Power: 45%
    • 5.5 Knockback
    • 10 steel and 3 wood

    Greatswords will be like broadswords, but will deal more damage, have higher knockback, and will have a very slow use time.
    Copper/Tin Greatsword:
    • Damage: 10
    • Use time: 29
    • 5.5 Knockback
    • 10 Copper/tin bars and 4 wood
    Iron/lead greatsword
    • Damage: 12
    • Use time: 29
    • 5.5 Knockback
    • 10 Iron/lead bars and 4 wood
    Silver/tungsten Greatsword
    • Damage: 13
    • Use time: 29
    • 5.5 Knockback
    • 10 Silver/tungsten bars and 4 wood
    Steel Greatsword

    • Damage: 14
    • Use time: 29
    • 5.5 Knockback
    • 10 steel bars and 4 wood
    • [​IMG]
    Gold/Platinum Greatsword
    • Damage: 15
    • Use time: 29
    • 5.5 Knockback
    • 10 Gold/Platinum bars and 4 wood

    o: I support.
    But then again, I'm greedy and like new fresh ideas. >_>
    I like. ;p

    Sorry... this kind of bores me. Not interesting enough for Terraria.

    This was made for prehardmode, not much intresting stuff going on there.

    Interesting is always better than uninteresting, prehardmode or not. I can't support something that doesn't excite me.

    It's not a good idea because then you will have to go between two worlds to get these steal items.
    And then they will get replaced quit fast with Crimson/Shadow armor.

    Actually they can be made with silver OR tungsten + copper OR tin, not with tungsten + silver or copper + tin.

    zimberzimber Terrarian

    Oh ok then.
    But still, thats another useless tier for the unused tier sets.
    People tend to jump from copper straight to gold then demonite/crimtane.
    I don't think that it is possible to add anything useful that early game.
  10. People even use easymode ores? I typically jump straight to Shadow/Crimson. XD

    But yeah, you're probably right. It's a neat idea, but needs something a bit more interesting, like unique greatswords (which is actually something I'm aiming for)

    I was talking about pickaxes, not everything.
    Armor wise I jump from wood to shadow/crimtane

    I jump from copper pickaxe to reaver shark and skip every single pickaxe in pre-hardmode!:p (They should probably fix that...)

  13. I was talking about that too.

    No seriously, I've actually made a jump from no armor straight to Shadow. Multiple times in fact.

    I blame Yrimir. He's the one whose technique I use to do so.

    Unique greatswords you say? Hmm....

    I like this. I'll support :)

    This doesn't contribute anything worthwhile to the game, it's completely redundant, and like Baconfry said, it's boring and generic.

    *resists plugging suggestion thread about steel equipment*

    Please no.
    It sounds like this is between gold and tungsten in power, and may people skip tiers already. We dont need any more tiers of prehardmode materials.
    I realize this is very well thought out, but sorry, no support.

    That is an awful reason to oppose a suggestion. There is plenty of room to add to pre-Hardmode. The problem with this suggestion is because it is completely redundant. There is no need for more craftable pre-Hardmode ore equipment, but that doesn't mean we can't add more equipment to pre-Hardmode if done the right way.

    At least you had the sense to say no to it, though. I don't know why so many people support this. >_>

    Thinking back on this, I probably should have made this suggestion more unique.

    Why not make it a hardmode bar?
    Combine Iron and Titanium with a furnace and bam, it becomes Steel.
    Just an idea considering Steel = Fe + C.
