will you overhaul goblin army? at the moment it is just a gateway to goblin tinkerer in prehardmode and hardmode is one new mob that only is useful super early hardmode.
The dash in release is not active if you have no shield charges. While this does not add always-active dash, it does increase the dash uptime by reducing the cooldown time between shield charges. May not be the answer you are looking for, but it should be slightly improved from release in that regard.
Other than terraria using a cannon for itSo..like...the Dragon Ball Terraria beam stuff is canonical now. Neat.
Also I hope the golem isn't -too- stupid. That room he spawns in is generally tiny and with added pain means less room to evade the newly added shenanigans we don't know about.
