There are a lot of Terraria bosses. As many. Each of them comes with their challenges and rewards, but they all hold the loot you need to get stronger and progress. All bosses can be approached in different ways, which is why this guide offers tips for each.
Before you tackle any of them, you need to prepare yourself accordingly. It’s worth hunting down Life Crystals and crafting Mana Crystals to increase your health and mana as much as possible. This will make the initial fights a lot easier, but it’s also essential when you reach the end of the game. So, let’s explore each of the fights against the different bosses in golem terraria.
All Terraria bosses and how to beat them
Beyond maximizing your health and mana, try to get the best possible armor no matter what stage you are at. Additionally, building a boss arena can make combat easier. You do this by placing wooden platforms in the sky in a comfortable jumping range or on a piece of rope. Then, dot the area with campfires, heart lanterns, and bottled stars to boost your health and mana regeneration.
Also make sure you always have health potions and decent lighting around your arena. Finally, bosses in Expert mode deal more damage, have more health, and tend to be faster too, so remember that if you’re up for the challenge.
Yes, Pre-Hardmode is a silly way to refer to part of a game, but that’s how Terraria rolls. Pre-Hardmode encompasses everything up to and including the defeat of the Wall of Flesh. When the Wall of Flesh is demolished, you activate Hardmode, once again sending you back to the bottom of the food chain.
One last point. You don’t have to fight the bosses in the order below, but it’s a good guideline.
This one hardly counts as a boss. You can find King Slime by defeating 150 slimes in a Slime Rain event. Defeating him will earn you some money, but little use. Your best bet is to use the terrain to your advantage and a longer range weapon if possible. Either way, that shouldn’t present too much of a challenge.
Eye of Cthulhu
Eye of Cthulhu has a chance to spawn at the start of each night once you have 200 or more health, three or more NPCs live in houses, and have more than ten tusks. It is a flying enemy that can pass through blocks. You’ll need a weapon with good speed and range to take it off, and it’s worth building an airlift to make the fight easier. The Sky Bridge will also be useful against later bosses, which is an additional reason to build.
The World Eater
The World Eater only spawns in worlds with corruption. You can spawn it by destroying three shadow orbs with a hammer, bomb, or dynamite. This boss is particularly tricky because it includes multiple bodies with individual health bars. The Eater of Worlds can also split when part of it is destroyed, meaning you’ll likely face a lot of small bosses as the fight progresses. As a result, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Armor piercing weapons work well against this boss as they can hit multiple sections at once.
You can attack the eyes on the hands and head of the Moon Lord, each having a separate health pool. The fight will be easier if you can send all three in quick succession, as the Moon Lord gets stronger every time one is destroyed. Once you remove them, you must kill the core while the True Eyes of Cthulhu attacks you. It is worth making a Stardust Dragon Staff even if you are not a Summoner, as it will help you increase your damage. Other than that, it’s about healing regularly and staying alert.
