the destroyer was easy because of all the items that can exploit his vulnerabilities, such as the magical harp, the nimbus rod, and the stormbow
now he's very difficult because all of those aforementioned weapons are gutted to shit and useless now
You may not be able to storm bow your way through all three mechanical bosses in the same night anymore but it absolutely still shits all over the destroyer.
those are useless? i play casually, what all was nerfed into uselessness??
Nimbus Dod only can hit 5 enemies per droplet, used to be infinite
Magical Harp now has a 5% damage penalty per enemy hit
Daedalus Stormbow's damage was nerfed, as well as its firerate with Holy, Unholy, Hellfire, or Jester arrows.
The stormbow was busted as shit but other changes make no sense other than "Nu-Logic hates fun"
it's weird to me balance is considered to be tweakable in a singleplayer pve only game
I don't know what happened at Re-Logic during 1.4 development, but they clearly forgot what was fun about the game. If they just kept it as 1.3.6 as they intended to with QoL and special seeds it would've been the perfect update to end it on.
nothing is useless, people just like to complain.
i have been hearing for a long time that melee is useless now, it piqued my curiosity so much that I went and did a melee-only run and beat the game with as much ease as i always do
one thing I noticed is they made it so that you can't trap the Golem anymore, that was the only thing that gave a bit more difficulty
While I agree that Re-Logic made some retarded changes, Destroyer is still piss-easy (webM related was in Master Mode on the For The Worthy seed, 22.214.171.124)
explain wtf is going on there
like another anon said, the strategy here is to tank up to the max and just spam explosives rigged to a little contraption that sends wire signals really fast
What do you suggest I use, the classic look? With how much more modern 1.4 looks it just doesn't fit
a timer triggering explosives sitting on dungeon brick because it is blastproof
How come he doesn't die?
turtle shell and worm scarf for big damage reduction
brain of confusion for dodge chance
star veil for increased invincibility after getting hit
any boss can be "piss easy" if you make a circuit specifically designed to do as much damage as possible while you just stand there. how about you try fighting it on a real platform arena?
>needing platforms for any boss
>not just fighting it on randomly generated surface
What if I did?
Just use gravity potions
>Just use gravity potions
I'm guessing you like harpies?
No, but I do like getting juggled by projectiles in space, as well as dying from fall damage.
You people are the reason games suck now
what are you on about? I just repeated a fun trick from 1.1
you didn't beat the game
Yeah, but at this point most stuff is figured out already. Kind of sad the feeling of discovery is long gone.
Nice fagthrone. Honestly, creating these are challenges of their own, so as long as you aren't following a yt tutorial then it's pretty neat
>start new game
>Mediumcore + master
kinda aides not gonna lie. I like the aspect of having to go retrieve your gear after death (i.e. needing multiple sets, needing to use potions when exploring so you don't risk having to do retrieval runs, making safe pathways to each zone of exploration) but 2 things make it extremely unenjoyable
>items randomly disappear on death, even before hitting the item despawn cap (can slimes pick them up and despawn? I know you can lose money and potions that way, but what about items?)
I've lost 2 pieces of armor so far to this, not the biggest deal in the world, but the moment that happens with a 8 recipe deep accessory I won't be happy
>items despawn on exiting the game
which means if you die right before you wanted to go to bed you're now stuck doing retrieval runs, you can't do that later (also if you crash then you lose everything, but the game is pretty stable)
would not recommend, RE logic should get their shit together and make inventory drops persistent
>turn on optional mode
yes, because the optional mode is very poorly implemented. the difficulty is supposed to be in dropping your items on death, not in items despawning for arbitrary reasons
you claim to know how it is "supposed" to be better than the people that made it?
ya, because when you go to character difficulty select, under mediumcore the caption is that you drop items on death. despawning items is not mentioned anywhere in the game unless you go into the wiki and read the rules around unplaced items and the reasoning is all around performance / lazyness, not for gameplay reasons
Graves really should be chests with your shit in them. Even that wouldn't be perfect because sometimes the dumb things can't land anywhere. Maybe have a grave robber NPC who sells you back whatever you lost on your last death if your grave just doesn't generate.
There's a reason it's known as tediumcore
It's a good thing you can literally choose which version of this game you want to play.
are there any mods that change the UI? i have beaten terraria several times and i love it but the fonts and menus are an eyesore.
Just use the dynamite strat. Anything else is just retarded.
you can kill him while being afk
>dies in under 10 seconds on the hardest difficulty
IDKI, maybe stop being a shitter?
>trivialize every boss
>the only terraria threads that get replies anymore are just bait posts about muh hard bosses
Just wait till 1.4.5
destroyer is the easiest boss and always will be, just hook yourself slightly away from his cores and spam excalibur or whatever sword you have and he gets melted really quick
>but i use ranged/magic/whatever
still easy but melee works best with the worms, especially ones that pass thru blocks like vilethorn or whatever the stronger vilethorn is called
surprised no one mentioned Skeletron yet
