Introduction
Terraria is a 2-D Minecraft Metroidvania Platformer. Before you dive in, bookmark wiki.terrariaonline.com and terraria.wikia.com. Both are immensely helpful resources for everything about Terraria.

Note that I'm playing this game in single player only, so most achievement descriptions and the estimated difficulty will reflect that. You will have a much easier time with the game with friends for the harder achievements. Also note that the approximate time to completion is a very conservative estimate. A lot of farming and mining is required for A Knight In Shining Armors, Corruptible, and Hallowed Be Thy Name. Depending on if you're playing single or multiplayer, your mileage may vary quite a bit.
Tutorial
When you fire up Terraria, start with the Tutorial to get Terraria Student and Terraria Expert. You will learn the controls, build a house, and be given a bit of general direction in what to do once you start your own world.
Make a Character & World
Once you're done with that, select Play Game and make a character. Since difficulty doesn't matter for achievements, just go with Normal. Now the game will want you to create a world. Choose whether or not you want to play online and/or invite only (you can change these whenever you load up your world), and then select a world size. Here are the differences:
  • Small All biomes are smaller and closer together, including the Underworld. Ore deposits are condensed and therefore easier to find. Floating islands are closer to the surface.
  • Medium Biome sizes strike a balance between small and large worlds, obviously. More ore, chests, pots, floating islands, Demon Altars (for spawning hardmode ore), and Shadow Orbs.
  • Large Biomes are larger, and are more spread out. There is more ore, but it is less condensed. Even more chests and pots, more Shadow Orbs, more floating islands, and more Demon Altars than Medium.
If you're mostly playing online with friends, go with a large world. Otherwise, medium and small worlds are fine for single player. There is enough ore and resources for you to do everything, regardless of world size, and you can always create new worlds and raid them for resources to bring back to your main world if you want.
Starting Out
Some tips for starting out:
  • Always have your weapon, pickaxe, axe, and hammer on the Inventory Bar at the top.
  • Make plenty of torches and wooden platforms, and always have a full stack of each for your excursions.
  • Always have healing potions and hotfix them to the D-Pad.
  • Place torches everywhere. Not only do they light up your world, they also serve as markers to show where you've been.
  • Pick up and hoard everything you find. Flowers, mushrooms, seeds, cobwebs-everything has a use.
  • Break all pots you encounter, loot everything in chests, and use a hammer to pick up empty chests so you can use them for storage at your base without having to craft your own.
  • Don't worry about dying and losing money. You won't need it for much early in the game, and Hardmode will give you plenty of it.
  • Always make better pickaxes before anything else. After that, upgrade your armor and other tools. There are plenty of nice weapons to find in chests, so crafting them isn't a priority.
  • Use your map while digging to locate ore and chests that you may not be able to see otherwise.
  • There is a handy Housing feature located in the menu that, among other options, can help you determine if your houses are livable for NPCs (walk into your house first before opening the menu).
Normal Mode
Terraria is roughly split between two parts. The first half is considered Normal Mode, and you will unlock most of these achievements without much effort as you progress:
  • Survivor
  • Home Sweet Home
  • Vanity of Vanities
  • Blood Moon Rises
  • Crowd Control
  • Rock Bottom
  • Icarus
  • Engineer
  • Maxed Out
  • To Hell and Back
  • Be Prepared
  • Challenge Accepted
These achievements will be earned through natural progression and no extra effort on your part. They will most likely unlock during Normal Mode:
  • Landscaper
  • Airtime!
  • Marathon Runner
These are the NPCs you can have at this point. It's okay if you don't have all of them yet, they will always be available:
  • Guide
  • Merchant
  • Nurse
  • Demolitionist
  • Arms Dealer
  • Dryad
  • Clothier
  • Goblin Tinkerer
  • Mechanic
These are the bosses you will want to kill in Normal Mode:
  • Slime King
  • Eye of Cthulhu
  • Destroyer of Worlds
  • Skeletron
  • Wall of Flesh
These are the gear sets you can have at this point. Note that it may be easier to get some of these once you get into Hardmode and have access to drills.
  • Mining Armor
  • Copper Armor
  • Iron Armor
  • Silver Armor
  • Gold Armor
  • Meteor Armor
  • Jungle Armor
  • Necro Armor
  • Shadow Armor
  • Molten Armor
Hardmode
Once you unlock Challenge Accepted, you will now be in Hardmode and unlock these achievements:
  • All In the Family
  • Slimer
  • Crafty
  • Ophthalmalogist
  • Ride the Worm
  • Bona Fide
  • Exterminator
  • Blacksmith
  • A Knight In Shining Armors
These are the NPCs you will encounter only in Hardmode to finish up All In the Family:
  • Wizard
These are the bosses you will kill to finish up Exterminator:
  • The Twins
  • Devourer of Worlds
  • Skeletron Prime
  • Ocram
These are the armor sets you will have to craft to finish up A Knight In Shining Armors:
  • Cobalt Armor
  • Mythril Armor
  • Adamantite Armor
  • Hallowed Armor
  • Dragon Armor
  • Spectral Armor
  • Titan Armor
These achievements will be time-consuming and take a lot of effort to complete. It might be best to create new small worlds and "prune" them for easier spreading of Corruption and Hallow:
  • Corruptible
  • Hallowed Be Thy Name
I'm Smelting! will take extra effort to unlock, even after crafting everything. See the achievement list for details.

Pet Hoarder at the moment is currently the hardest achievement to unlock in single player, based on the absurd rarity of Honeycombs and Wolf Fangs. Save your sanity and trade for them online.

Achievement List

Home Sweet Home - 20
Get The Guide to move into housing.
Build a house for your guide and have him move in. A house is considered livable if it is at least 6 blocks tall and 10 blocks wide, with a table, chair, door, lighting, and walls. Crafting tables work too. Once the criteria are met, he will move in on his own.

All in the Family - 10
Get every NPC to move into housing.
Most NPCs will appear once you meet certain criteria, which I've described below. You must house all of them to get the achievement.
  • Guide The first NPC you'll meet, spawns when you start a new world.
  • Merchant Spawns when you acquire 50 Silver Coins total, in single or multiplayer.
  • Nurse Spawns when you use your first Crystal Heart.
  • Demolitionist Spawns when you acquire an explosive (Bombs, Grenades, and Dynamite) and have a Merchant NPC. Explosives are commonly found in chests and pots.
  • Dryad Spawns when you have beaten a boss. King Slime doesn't count.
  • Arms Dealer Spawns when you have acquired a gun or bullets. Bullets and guns are initially found in Shadow Orbs.
  • Clothier Spawns once you kill Skeletron.
  • Mechanic Found in the Dungeon. You must talk to her to free her. She won't walk back to a house on her own, so you can either wait until she dies and respawns at your village (most likely to happen) or assign her to a house manually.
  • Goblin Tinkerer Found in the Cavern layer after defeating a Goblin Invasion. You must talk to him to free him. He won't walk back to a house on his own, so you can either wait until he dies and respawns at your village or assign him to a house manually.
  • Wizard Found in Hardmode in the Cavern layer. You must talk to him to free him. He won't walk back to a house on his own, so you can either wait until he dies and respawns at your village or assign him to a house manually.
Note: You don't need Santa Claus.

Rock Bottom - 10
Reach the bottom of the World.
The bottom of the world is called the Underworld, filled with lava and annoying monsters. The achievement pops when you reach the absolute lowest point of the map. Once you get to the Underworld, you can either dig your way down through the ash, or find an empty gap. Don't worry, you won't fall off the world.

It's best to wait until you're ready to mine Hellstone before doing this. The fastest way to get down there is to find a nice place near your spawn point (I always use my basement), point your cursor directly below you, and start digging. You'll automatically dig out a three block wide tunnel, which you can then use for quick access to the Underworld. A Diving Helmet, Diving Gear, or Gills Potion can be very handy when you encounter pockets of water. You can then either just wait until you get to the Underworld to let the water drain out (hopefully on lava), or dig out additional pockets off to the side of the tunnel for the water to drain into.

Exterminator - 25
Defeat every boss.
Most all bosses are fought by summoning them through crafted items and at specific times during the day. They are listed below in a general order of weakest to hardest. For some bosses in single player, if you die during the fight, you'll have to resummon and start over. Same goes for multiplayer if everyone dies at the same time and the boss has no one in its immediate vicinity to attack. Other bosses will not reset and will most likely meet up with you at your spawn point when you die, allowing you to respawn and resume your attack. Most bosses also have a time limit, requiring you to fight quickly and efficiently before you run out of time.
  • King Slime Spawns very rarely during daytime in Forests that are not in the center third of the map (so basically they can't spawn around your spawn point). Can also be summoned with a Slime Crown, crafted from a Gold Crown and 99 Gel at a Demon Altar. Can be summoned at anytime, anywhere (space permitted), and with no time limit. Super easy and not really considered a boss by most, but still counts.
  • Eye of Cthulhu Has a chance of spawning at night once the player has at least 200 health, at least 10 Defense, and has 3 or more NPCs housed, but only once. Can also be summoned anywhere by using a Suspicious Looking Eye at night, crafted from 6 Lens at a Demon Altar. Will despawn if you die, and must be killed before sunrise.
  • Eater of Worlds Summoned by either smashing 3 Shadow Orbs, or using Worm Food, which is crafted from 30 Vile Powder and 15 Rotten Chunks at a Demon Altar. Can only be summoned and must be fought in the Corruption. Will despawn if you die, but has no time limit. Be careful that you don't move out of the Corruption or it will despawn.
  • Skeletron Summoned by speaking to the Old Man at the Dungeon entrance at night. Will despawn if you die. If you can't kill it before sunrise, he will insta-kill you. Can only kill Skeletron once per world.
  • Wall of Flesh The last and toughest of the Normal bosses. Summoned by dropping a Guide Voodoo Doll into a pool of lava in the Underworld. Once you throw your doll into the lava, your Guide will be sacrificed and you will receive the Horrified debuff, which keeps you close to the Wall of Flesh and will pull other players to it when they move too far. Basically, this debuff locks all players into the fight until they or the Wall of Flesh die. The boss is a literal wall that will push you through your entire world until it gets to the end, which will then crush and kill you automatically if you're still alive. When messing around in the Underworld, you must be careful that you don't let a Voodoo Demon drop the Guide Voodoo Doll into lava upon death, or else it will summon the Wall of Flesh.
  • The Destroyer A Hardmode-only boss that is summoned anywhere at night by using a Mechanical Worm at night, crafted from 7 Souls of Night, 6 Rotten Chunks, 5 Copper Bars, and 5 Iron Bars at a Mythril Anvil. Must be defeated before sunrise or else it will despawn. Does not despawn when you are killed.
  • The Twins A Hardmode-only boss that is summoned anywhere by using a Mechanical Eye at night, crafted from 3 Lens, 5 Copper Bars, 5 Iron Bars, and 7 Souls of Light. Must be defeated before sunrise or else it will despawn. Does not despawn when you are killed.
  • Skeletron Prime A Hardmode-only boss that is summoned anywhere by using a Mechanical Skull at night, crafted from 30 Bones, 5 Copper Bars, 5 Iron Bars, 5 Souls of Light, and 5 Souls of Night. Dying will cause it to despawn. If you haven't killed him by sunrise, he will go into "Godmode" and begin to insta-kill you if you stand still. He will also increase his defense, only taking 1 damage from regular hits and 2 from criticals.
  • Ocram The console-exclusive boss that is summoned by using a Suspicious Looking Skull, crafted from 1 Mechanical Skull, 2 Mechanical Eyes, 20 Adamantite Bars, 10 Souls of Light, and 10 Souls of Night. Can only be summoned at night.

Slimer - 10
Kill every type of slime.
Slimes are everywhere in Terraria, and there are many varieties. Most all slimes will be encountered through natural progression of the game, so you should never worry about hunting for a specific one save for Pinky if you're unlucky.
  • Green Slime Spawn in Forests.
  • Blue Slime Found in the Forest Underground.
  • Red Slime Found in the Underground layer.
  • Purple Slime Found in Forests.
  • Yellow Slime Found in the Underground layer.
  • Black Slime Found in the Cavern layer.
  • Mother Slime Black-colored and larger. Found in the Cavern layer. Spawns 2 to 3 Baby Slimes on death.
  • Baby Slime Spawns when a Mother Slime is killed. The same color as a Mother Slime, but smaller.
  • Pinky A rare slime that spawns in Forests and the Underground layer. Smaller and tougher than other slimes listed above.
  • Jungle Slime Found in the Jungle. Green-colored.
  • Lava Slime Glowing orange slime found in the Underworld.
  • Dungeon Slime Somewhat uncommon indigo-colored slime found in the Dungeon.
  • King Slime A very large blue-colored slime. Considered a boss. It can spawn very rarely in Forests that are not in the center third of the map (so basically they can't spawn around your spawn point). It's easier to just summon one by using a Slime Crown, crafted from a Gold Crown and 99 Gel at a Demon Altar.
  • Corrupt Slime Found only in Hardmode in the Corruption and Underground Corruption. Dark blue-colored and spawns three Slimelings upon death.
  • Slimeling Found only in Hardmode. Spawns when a Corrupt Slime is killed. Same color as a Corrupt Slime, only smaller.
  • Shadow Slime Found only in Hardmode in the Corruption and Underground Corruption. Same color as the Corrupt Slime, but smaller. Console-exclusive.
  • Slimer A winged flying slime found only in Hardmode in the Corruption and Underground Corruption. Dark blue-colored. Has two "forms": flight form and normal. You first kill its wings, then you can kill the slime completely.
  • Toxic Sludge Found only in Hardmode in the Underground layer. Green-colored with a happy face.
  • Illuminant Slime Found only in Hardmode in the Underground Hallow. Bright glowing purple-colored slime.
Challenge Accepted - 10
Unlock Hard Mode.
To unlock Hard Mode, you must kill the Wall of Flesh. More details about this boss are described in the Exterminator achievement.

Maxed Out - 15
Max out your heatlh and mana.
Yep, a typo.

While you're out digging through the world and doing your thing, you'll occasionally find red stone hearts called Crystal Hearts. Breaking them with a hammer will drop a Life Crystal, which will increase your maximum life by 20. The maximum amount of health is 400, or 20 hearts. These are most commonly found in the Dungeon and Underworld. You'll max out your health fairly quickly once you reach the Underworld.

For mana, you'll need to gather Fallen Stars, which naturally spawn at night on the surface. Collect 10 Fallen Stars and combine them to create a Mana Crystal, which you can then use to increase your maximum mana by 20. The maximum amount of mana is 200, or 10 stars. At night, Fallen Stars are plentiful, and if you set aside each night to collect them you'll quickly max out your mana.

Corruptible - 10
Corrupt most of the World.

The Corruption is a biome generated upon world creation and characterized by purple, decaying grass and trees. It has its own unique spawns and terrain, with the main features being giant chasms with Shadow Orbs and Demon Altars located at the bottom. Corruption has the unique ability to grow and spread, either naturally or artificially.

When starting out, Corruption spread is slow and outright stopped by certain blocks, most notably stone and sand. However, once Hardmode is unlocked, Corruption will spread faster and convert stone and sand into Ebonstone Blocks and Ebonstone Sand. The game will also generate a new type of Corruption biome called Underground Corruption that extends diagonally from the center of the Underworld to the surface.

In order for the achievement to pop, you must get at least 50% coverage. The Dryad NPC will track this for you, and sells Corrupt Seeds during a Blood Moon to help spread Corruption on the surface. However, Unholy Water, crafted from 1 Corrupt Seeds, 1 Bottled Water, and 1 Ebonsand Block, will be your primary tool in spreading Corruption.

Hallowed Be Thy Name - 10
Hallow most of the World.

The Hallow is the opposite of the Corruption, generated upon unlocking Hardmode, and features bright and colorful trees and enemies. It spawns diagonally from the center of the Underworld to the surface once the Wall of Flesh is killed. The underground portion of the Hallow is called the Underground Hallow, which mirrors the Underground Corruption in a V-shape. Much like Corruption, it will spread through stone and sand and convert them into Pearlstone Blocks and Pearlsand Blocks.

In order for the achievement to pop, you must get at least 50% coverage. The Dryad NPC will track this for you, and sells Hallowed Seeds once the Wall of Flesh is killed. Using those seeds to make Holy Water is better for spreading the Hallow than planting them. Holy Water requires 5 Pixie Dust, 1 Bottled Water, and 1 Hallowed Seeds.

Strategies for Corruptible and Hallowed Be Thy Name:


Ophthalmologist - 15
Defeat The Twins.
A Hard Mode-only boss that is summoned by using a Mechanical Eye at night. Must be defeated before sunrise.

Bona Fide - 15
Defeat Skeletron Prime!
A Hardmode-only boss that is summoned by using a Mechanical Skull at night. Must be defeated before sunrise.

Ride the Worm - 15
Defeat The Destroyer
A Hardmode-only boss that is summoned by using a Mechanical Worm at night. Must be defeated before sunrise.

Marathon Runner - 20
Travel 42km on the ground.
You'll get this naturally through game progression.

Landscaper - 15
Remove more than 10,000 blocks.
You will get it naturally as you're doing everything else.

Crowd Control - 15
Defeat the Goblin Army.
There are two ways to summon a Goblin Army. The first method is to use a Goblin Battle Standard, crafted from 10 Tattered Cloth and 5 Wood at a Loom. Tattered Cloth is a drop from Goblin Scouts, rare mobs that spawn on the surface during the day away from the center 3rd of the map (so basically they can't spawn around your spawn point).

The second method is to have a player with at least 200 life and have smashed at least one Shadow Orb. When you meet those criteria, you will have a 1 in 15 chance of a Goblin Army spawning at dawn. You will know when one is happening when the message "A Goblin Army is approaching from the [east/west]!" appears.

The Goblin Army will gather at your house or at the spawn point if you don't have a house. You will have to kill 120 goblins in single player. In multiplayer, it is 80 goblins plus 40 per player that has at least 200 life. They attack in waves, and the achievement will pop and you'll get the message "A Goblin Army has been defeated!" once you've killed off all but the last wave. You can die and respawn as much as you want until you've killed the required amount.

Survivor - 10
Complete a full day and night.
Self-explanatory. Pops at dawn, whether you die or not.

Icarus - 10
Reach the top of the World.
This will unlock once you've reached the very top of the world. You'll know you're close when you see stars and gravity weakens. You can also check your map.

There are a few ways to do this. Using a Gravitation Potion is the easiest. You can also get there by making a "dirt pillar", manually pointing the cursor below you and jumping straight up, while placing blocks below you as you're in the air. Because of Harpies, it is best to wait until you have a Grappling Hook so you can recover quickly after getting attacked.

Vanity of Vanities - 10
Wear a full set of vanity clothes.
Fill out your vanity slots with gear. Doesn't need to be vanity items; regular equipment works too.

Pet Hoarder - 10
Find ALL the pets.
There are certain items in the game that summon pets when used. They are found randomly in chests, and some are more common than others. The quickest way to get this achievement is to head over to the Item/Weapon/Armor Trading thread and make friends.

If you want to find them all in single player, the best advice I can give is to open every chest you find. The locations I've listed below were compiled from a month's worth of various Terraria message board posts. They may not be completely accurate, and you may find a pet at a different location.
  • Cabbage Summons a Guinea Pig. Found in chests near the surface.
  • Petri Dish Summons a Slime. Found in gold chests. More common in the Dungeon.
  • Vial of Blood Summons a Bat. Found in gold chests. More common in the Dungeon.
  • Brain Summons a Zombie. Found in shadow chests. Can sometimes be found in gold chests located near the top of the Underworld layer.
  • Wolf Fang Summons a Werewolf. Found in gold chests in the wooden structures located in the cavern layer.
  • Honeycomb Summons a Tiphia (Hornet). Found in gold chests in the lower part of the Underground Jungle.
Note: The Carrot is a PC-exclusive item only available to those who purchased the Collector's Edition of Terraria. It doesn't exist on consoles.

Terraria Expert - 5
You have completed the tutorial!
Select Tutorial from the main menu and play through it.

Terraria Student - 5
You have begun the tutorial!
Select Tutorial and it will pop.

Be Prepared - 15
Activate 5 buffs at the same time.
Buffs are temporary enhancements such as increased armor and health regeneration. Potions are the best source of buffs. Chug five different potions at once to get this achievement. Buffs are super useful for Hardmode bosses, so you'll probably get it when you're prepping for one.

Airtime! - 10
Catch some serious air.
This achievement tracks the total amount of time you spend jumping, flying, and falling. You'll get it naturally.

Blacksmith - 15
Craft 300 items at the anvil!
Anvils are used to make weapons, armor, and tools. The achievement should pop with natural progression, usually around the time you're making multiple sets of armor and Crystal Bullets for the endgame. If you want it earlier, craft Copper stuff since it's abundant and has little use once you're out of the early stages of the game. Copper Broadswords only require 8 Copper Bars a piece.

I'm Smelting! - 20
Smelt 10,000 bars of metal.
A forge is required to smelt metal. You upgrade your forge twice throughout the game as you acquire rarer ores. Don't try to get this one ASAP; wait until Hardmode when you get drills to make digging and mining ores much quicker. The game will keep track of how many bars you've crafted in the leaderboards menu, but only if you play online.

Strategy: First, turn off autosave in the options menu. Then load up your game and stockpile as much lower tier ore as you care to farm (Copper and Iron work best). Save your game, smelt all of it, reload, and repeat until the achievement pops. Thanks to Mikekips for the tip.

A Knight in Shining Armors - 15
Obtain every type of armor.
There's lots of armor throughout the game, with the best armor also being the most time-consuming to obtain, requiring multiple sets of Hardmode armor. Hardmode armor includes three different types of helmets for each set as well, and you'll need to craft them all for use as materials for the best armor.

This achievement is finicky and may not unlock once you've collected everything. Shuffling your armor around in chests and in your inventory or dropping it and picking it back up should cause it to pop.

  • Mining Armor Mining Helmet, Mining Shirt, and Mining Pants. You buy the Mining Helmet from the Merchant for 8 gold. The shirt and pants are rare drops from the Undead Miner and Vampire Miner, zombie-type mobs found in the Cavern layer. Depending on luck, this may be the last set you complete. These already rare mobs are even more scarce once you unlock Hardmode, so make a new world instead when you plan on farming them.
  • Copper Armor Copper Helmet, Copper Chainmail, and Copper Greaves. Requires 60 Copper Bars to craft the entire set.
  • Iron Armor Iron Helmet, Iron Chainmail, and Iron Greaves. Requires 75 Iron Bars to craft the entire set.
  • Silver Armor Silver Helmet, Silver Chainmail, and Silver Greaves. Requires 75 Silver Bars to craft the entire set.
  • Gold Armor Gold Helmet, Gold Chainmail, and Gold Greaves. Requires 90 Gold Bars to craft the entire set.
  • Meteor Armor Meteor Helmet, Meteor Suit, and Meteor Leggings. Requires 75 Meteorite Bars to craft the entire set.
  • Jungle Armor Jungle Hat, Jungle Shirt, and Jungle Pants. Requires 12 Stingers, 2 Vines, 32 Jungle Spores, and 1 of each type of gem (Diamond, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, Topaz, and Amethyst).
  • Necro Armor Necro Helmet, Necro Breastplate, and Necro Greaves. Requires 150 Bones and 135 Cobwebs to craft the entire set.
  • Shadow Armor Shadow Helmet, Shadow Scalemail, and Shadow Greaves. Requires 50 Demonite Bars and 45 Shadow Scales to craft the entire set.
  • Molten Armor Molten Helmet, Molten Breastplate, and Molten Greaves. Requires 90 Hellstone Bars to craft the entire set.
  • Cobalt Armor Cobalt Helmet, Cobalt Mask, Cobalt Hat, Cobalt Breastplate, and Cobalt Leggings. Requires 45 Cobalt Bars to craft a set, 65 Cobalt Bars for everything.
  • Mythril Armor Mythril Helmet, Mythril Hood, Mythril Hat, Mythril Chainmail, and Mythril Greaves. Requires 45 Mythril Bars to craft a set, 65 Mythril Bars for everything.
  • Adamantite Armor Adamantite Helmet, Adamantite Mask, Adamantite Headgear, Adamantite Breastplate, and Adamantite Leggings. Requires 54 Adamantite Bars to craft a set, 78 Adamantite Bars for everything.
  • Hallowed Armor Hallowed Helmet, Hallowed Mask, Hallowed Headgear, Hallowed Plate Mail, and Hallowed Greaves. Requires the Cobalt, Mythril, and Adamantite Armor sets, 20 Soul of Might, 20 Soul of Fright, and 20 Soul of Sight to craft a set, with 40 more Soul of Sight to craft the other two helmets.
  • Dragon Armor Dragon Mask, Dragon Breastplate, and Dragon Greaves. Requires the Cobalt, Mythril, Adamantite, and Hallowed Armor sets, 60 Souls of Might, and 60 Souls of Blight to craft a set. Needs the "melee" version helms (Cobalt Helmet, Mythril Helmet, Adamantite Helmet, and Hallowed Mask) from the other sets to craft. Due to a bug, the Dragon Mask can also be found in Jungle biome chests, although it will most likely be fixed in the next update. All pieces have a chance to drop from Ocram.
  • Spectral Armor Spectral Headgear, Spectral Armor, and Spectral Subligar. Requires the Cobalt, Mythril, Adamantite, and Hallowed Armor sets, 60 Souls of Blight, and 60 Souls of Fright to craft a set. Needs the "caster" version helms (Cobalt Hat, Mythril Hood, Adamantite Headgear, and Hallowed Headgear) from the other sets to craft. All pieces have a chance to drop from Ocram.
  • Titan Armor Titan Helmet, Titan Mail, and Titan Leggings. Requires the Cobalt, Mythril, Adamantite, and Hallowed Armor sets, 60 Souls of Blight, and 60 Souls of Sight to craft a set. Needs the "ranged" version helms (Cobalt Mask, Mythril Hat, Adamantite Mask, and Hallowed Helmet) from the other sets to craft. All pieces have a chance to drop from Ocram.
Note: The Wizard Hat does not count.

Strategy for Mining Armor: Dig down to the lowest part of the Cavern layer (just above the Underworld) and find a good-sized natural cavern that extends horizontally a few screens. Skeletons spawn at an increased rate at this level, which increases your chance of getting an Undead or Vampire Miner. Fill in any other empty pockets around your main cavern to prevent enemies from spawning there. Cover up any lava pools. Now stand in the middle and wait for enemies to come to you. Using a Battle Potion and Blue Candle is recommended, but not necessary. This method also works for getting a Pinky to spawn.

Strategies for farming materials: Souls aren't rare, but you need plenty of them for the boss summoning items and Hardmode armor. Here's a link to the method I used for Souls of Light/Night.

I never had enough Lens when I needed them for The Twins, so here's a magnificent video for farming them:


Note: Create your Lens farm in Normal Mode.

Engineer - 10
Place 100 wires.
Wires are obtained from the Mechanic NPC, who is trapped in the Dungeon. Once you free her, she will sell you Wire and a Wrench, which you need to place the Wire. Set down 100 Wire and the achievement will pop.

Red Moon Rises - 10
Survive the Blood Moon.
For this event to occur, one player must have at least 120 life. You will then have a 1 in 9 chance every night for a Blood Moon, except on nights when there is a new moon.

In Normal Mode, a Blood Moon will cause enemy spawn rates to increase, and give Zombies the ability to open doors. If you're just starting out and your house is getting overwhelmed, you can barricade your doors with dirt or other blocks to keep the Zombies out. The achievement will unlock once you survive until morning.

Crafty - 20
Use every crafting station.
For a crafting station to register as "used", all you need to do is open up the crafting menu next to the station. You technically don't have to craft anything for it to count.
  • Work Bench The first thing you'll make. Crafted by hand. Requires 10 Wood.
  • Furnace For smelting most ores. Crafted from a Work Bench. Requires 20 Stone Blocks, 4 Wood, and 3 Torches.
  • Iron Anvil For making tools, weapons, and armor. Crafted from a Work Bench. Requires 5 Iron Bars.
  • Table & Chair For making Depth Meters and Watches. Crafted by placing a Wooden Chair and Table next to each other.
  • Work Bench & Chair For making Goggles. Crafted by placing a Wooden Chair and Work Bench next to each other. You can still use the Work Bench to craft other things.
  • Alchemy Station For brewing potions. Crafted by placing a Bottle, Vase, or Mug on a Wooden Table, Work Bench, or Wood Platform. You can still use the Work Bench and Wooden Table to craft other things.
  • Sawmill Used mostly for wood furniture. Crafted from a Work Bench. Requires 10 Wood, 2 Iron Bars, and 1 Iron Chain.
  • Loom Used to make Silk and vanity items. Crafted from a Sawmill. Requires 12 Wood.
  • Keg Used for brewing Ale. Crafted from a Sawmill. Requires 14 Wood.
  • Cooking Pot Used to make Bowls of Soup. Crafted from an Iron Anvil. Requires 10 Iron Bars and 2 Wood.
  • Bookcase Used to make the Crystal Storm and Cursed Flames. Crafted from a Sawmill. Requires 20 Wood and 10 Books.
  • Tinkerer's Workshop Used to combine accessories. Sold by the Goblin Tinkerer for 10 gold.
  • Demon Altar For making boss-summon items. Can't pick them up. Found scattered below the surface, with a high concentration of them in the Corruption.
  • Hellforge An upgrade to the Furnace that can smelt Hellstone. Found in the Underworld, usually in the obsidian brick structures. If you made a world before the May 1st, 2013 patch, Hellforges will be located in the lower portion of the cavern layer, just above the Underworld. Requires a 60% power hammer to pick up, or you can remove the blocks below it to dislodge it.
  • Mythril Anvil An upgrade to the Iron Anvil for making Hardmode armor and tools. Crafted from an Iron Anvil. Requires 10 Mythril Bars.
  • Adamantite Forge An upgrade to the Hellforge for smelting Adamantite Ore. Crafted from a Mythril Anvil. Requires 30 Adamantite Ore and 1 Hellforge.
  • Water For making Bottled Water. Any body of water will do, just go into the crafting menu as you would normally do for other crafting stations.
  • By Hand Considered anything that is crafted without the aid of a crafting station.
To Hell and Back - 20
Travel from the surface to The Underworld and back without dying.
I recommend building a tunnel straight down to the Underworld for quick access, as described in the Rock Bottom achievement. Then all you have to do is climb back up to the surface (through Hookshots, Wooden Platforms, etc.) and it will pop. You don't need to go all the way down; when you reach the lava veins background, you've gone down far enough.

Can I just say nice guide very detailed but with the goblin army one you don't mention the Goblin Battle Standard which is used to spawn the goblin army. This was the only way for me to face them at the time as I didn't know where or what a shadow or was. Also I reckon 20-30 hours is a bit too low for the 10,000 bars smelted and the Worlds being Most Hallow/Corrupt. Also Skeletron Prime doesn't have to be beat before sun rise but when sun rise happens he goes into a god like mode and you can only do 1s of damage (And 2's for criticals) to him but he is still defeat-able it just makes it a lot harder but still possible! Also when i beat him when he was is "God mode" he dropped 50 Souls of Fright!

Thanks for reading! I forgot about the Goblin Battle Standard. It's interesting you encountered enough Goblin Scouts to make one before breaking a Shadow Orb. I've yet to see a Goblin Scout in either the PC or Xbox 360 versions of the game.

I agree, 20-30 hrs is pretty conservative. I've yet to do those lengthy achievements (10,000 Bars, Hallow/Corrupt/All Armor) but I'm still in the 20-30 hr range. I think ~30 hrs will probably be more accurate once I get all that stuff.

That's pretty impressive you beat Skeletron Prime during the day. Doesn't he insta-kill you at dawn?

Thanks again for the tips.

Yea Skeletron Prime does 1 shot you during the day but we had a area and just dropped down and shot him also we didn't start during the day. It was night and he was on half health when it turned day.

To get all armours you have to fight ocram somewhere in the region of 50 times for all the souls of blight. Simply to gather the resources to summon him that many times legitimately, without duplication, will take way longer than that.

I haven't fought him yet and assumed he dropped way more Blights. Just watched a video of the fight and he only dropped 9. That's unfortunate.

the few times i fought Ocram, first time he dropped 22 blight, second was 8 or 9, and the others were in the teens. My guess is anywhere from 5-25 per kill, depending.

Honestly Ocram is not hard at all, hes probally the easiest of all the hardmode bosses. All he does is send pets out that will probally be killed while already shooting at him and occasionally spits out lasers (and sometimes charges at you which is easily avoidable). Skeletron Prime still stands as the hardest due to the fact that he has 4 different weapons that can attack you at once and that you have to hit his head to defeat him with the fact that his weapons on his arms can and will block half the shots.

Use the Hellstone abuse strategy if your having trouble. Lay a straight line of hellstone on the ground where you fight him, get a regular colbalt shield (keep ur obsidian shield when not fighting him), accessories like philisophers stone, cross necklace, and ranger emblem make it easier. 1500+ Crystal bullets with megashark gun. have about 10 Greater healing potions (5 will do but i always keep more). Equip the Colbalt shield and stand on the hellstone, instead of taking damage from him, you will take damage from the hellstone. The only way he can damage you while your on the hellstone is if you stand inside one of his damaging parts long enough. So just keep moving back and forth without jumping. Also build a house up in the sky above the hellstone and have the nurse move into it. Put a bed and piggy bank in there and set your spawn point there. If you ever do get low while on the hellstone and potion reuse is still cooling down, warp to her with a magic mirror, heal, and immediatly drop back down onto the hellstone. Keep 25 Silver coins on you (no more) during the fight for this.

To Hell and Back

You do not have to go all the way down. You just have to go down to were the background changes to underworld (glowing lava) and then go back up.

I'm not sure, but I think it means that you can fight the bosses and die as many times as you want as long as you summon the boss near a spawn. We built an arena with a bed in the middle and it worked fine until Skeletron Prime.

Or if you want to kill bosses without getting killed yourself, put down a layer of hellstone with heart statues/pressure plates on it. We were able to get about 15 after many many hours of farming worlds and they make the fights so much easier.

Heart statues/pressure plates? How does that work? Man, I keep finding more and more stuff out about this game, the wiki guide helps a bunch, but not with random tactical stuff like that!

Some statues can be activated if they are connected to pressure plates. Add wires from the statues to the pressure plates and when you step on them, the statue activates. You could also uses switches or levers (or timers? haven't used those yet), but the pressure plates seem to work best for boss fights. Mana star statues are good as well if you're a mage.

Bunny statues are great for farming light/night souls and money. Goldfish ones work too, but we found bunny statues work much better.

Yep, that's what I meant. I'll change it.

I'll be making edits here in a bit and cleaning stuff up.

Quick note about the 10k Bars if you want to finish it faster. If you stack up enough ore to make around 250 bars or so then save the game with the ores, turn auto save off after that, smelt the bars, exit to the menu without saving and repeat until you hit 10k. You can keep track of this on the Leaderboards to see how close you are. It's a very lazy way but it does get the job done and it goes by within 30 minutess or less depending on how close you were.
