Hey Guys, i've seen a lot of threads regarding the new bosses and a lot of people who couldn't beat them solo. I admit i've had a hard time in the beginning but after a while it became a piece of cake. I've seen also a few guides but only with flamethrowers, harps or megasharks. But you would need to kill any other boss first. I'll show you how easy it is with just the basics you get right after defeating Wall of Flesh. I'll start with "The Destroyer" and update this post for the new bosses. Edit: 2 done 1 to go. Read this first,please: I personally believe, that you will have the most fun when you try it out on your own. I know it becomes frustrating after a while, and wasting 10 spawners because you just can't figure out what to do isn't exactly fun and i understand that. But i think the moment where you finally beat the bosses without reading a guide first really does feel good. It gets spoiled a bit when you're using the tactic of other persons and didnt really try yourself. So if you wasted 10 spawners, this message isnt't really meant for you. If you are on of the few who have spent only the first spawner, please go back to Terraria and prepare with the fact in mind, that the bosses are all soloable without exploits or anything, it is worth it. If you try a few times and cant beat the bosses, try the next day. I know this is common sense but I've seen a few people giving up after the first three tries. It's just that i didnt write these guides to spoil anything and i would feel bad if it did. I suggest if you're about to give up, look at my recommendations on what equipment you should have, maybe it's gonna help. A helpful order of the bosses: (This is a suggestion, you do not have to kill the bosses in this order and my guides are written so that you could kill every boss without killing any other boss first) It's easiest to fight the twins first as they won't need much defense. Use the souls of sight for harp and maybe better headgear if you can afford to. With the harp the Destroyer will be even easier than with the dao of pow (Phasesaber should still be with you). Use the souls of might for a megashark (and propably some better armor if you can), you should have no problem against Skeletron Prime after that. Though hallowed repeater might be easier for most beginners on Skeletron Prime. Twins: 24.000 HP per eye, 2 connected eyes, Laserattack, Cursed flames, fast movementsRetinazer: Shoots lasers Spazmatism: Shoots cursed flamed (after 50% it sprays like a flamethrower) What you need for the boss: Full Cobalt Ranged Armor (Or Cobalt Mask + Molten Breastplate + Molten Greaves) About 20+ defense (with average dodging skils) High velocity projectile weapon (Assault Rifle seems to be the best) Crystal bullets (Highest damage against this boss so far) Demon/Angel Wings Cloud in a baloon Spectre Boots Ranger Emblem Philosophers Stone It's best to have the Greater Healing potions with you Mechanical eye to summon the boss The last two are optional. You can use any other accessorie here. The reason for Wings,Cloud in a balloon and the spectre boots is, that you can fligh high AND fast. The cloud in a balloon increases the height you'll fly up with the wings when youre hitting spacebar. Without the balloon the eye most likely will be able to catch up. Alternatively you can use the gravitation potion, but i found it rather inconveniend and it'll propably screw your aim which is again a bad thing because you have to hit a lot. How to fight the boss: I reforged all the accessories to +4% damage, because the real issue is not the incoming damage, but the outgoing. Normally when soloing the "Twins" you will run out of time instead out of Life. I recommend full cobalt ranged armor at least. If you have a better ranged head, use it. You should get enough ammunition beforehand anyways (Ranged setboni are a chance of not consuming ammo. So the extra damage from better masks is more important). Crystal Bullets are the best choice here as i've tested so far. It'll do damage to the boss multiple times per shot and the shards possibly can crit, too. Focus on one eye first, do not get the second eye to 50% HP until the first eye is killed. You should propably focus on the green one first (Spazmatism), because spray + normal laser is easier to dodge than fast laser + cursed flames. Phase 1: Both eyes over 50% Keep shooting with your rifle at the eye, even when they're off screen you can hear whether you hit or not. Fly up while dodging the attacks and shooting at the boss, then fall down (if you land on the ground the wings will negate fall damage), hold down spacebar so your air phase will be longer. While falling slowly the eye wont hit you (the cursed flames will go right above your head) Phase 2: One eye below 50% As soon as spazmatizm goes below 50% damage, it'll trade the cursed flames for it's spraying attack. He will switch back and forth between spraying and charging at you. The pattern is quite easy: Spraying - charging 6 times - spraying - charging 6 times. So you can shoot at him while in the air, when he charges just drop down a bit or fly up a bit, he will miss you.Bring him down to 0% this way. The hitting sound will now be metallic so you know whether you hit the right eye. Phase 3+4: One eye down As soon as Spazmatism is down, the other one is practically dead. He is a bit harder to dodge but genereally just fly up high, when he starts to shoot his lasers faster drop down while shooting. The lasers will miss you, because they're aimed at the position where you were when a laser is fired. Video guide: Destroyer: 80.000 HP, "Flying eyes", Laserattack, Segmented Boss What you need for the boss: Full Mythril Melee Armor About 60+ Defense (either reforge accessories or use an ironskin potion) Dao of Pow (for the boss) Phasesaber (or any other swinging weapon that's good enough to kill the eyes) Regeneration Potion Cross Necklace (4+ def) Obsidian Shield (+4 def) Philosophers Stone or Star Cloak (+4 def) Band of regeneration (+4 def) It's best to have the Greater Healing potions with you Mechanical Worm to summon the boss How to fight the Boss: I used an Arena in my video, though it's not really needed as stated in the video. A flat area about 3/4 of the screen on the ground is just fine,too. Put up some light and use the Regeneration Potion (Slow Life regen all the time, stacks with Band of Regeneration as far as i know), then summon the boss. Stand in the middle and hit the boss with the Dao of Pow. When you've lost at least 100-150Life switch to Phasesaber and kill the eyes. They drop 0-2 hearts (maybe 3) at 20 Life each. Killing five normally gives about 100 Life. If you fall below 50% just use a Healing Potion. When you have enough Life again switch back to Dao of Pow. As you can see in the video i tried to get hit by the Destroyers body, it does less damage than the lasers and will make you invincible for a short time before the body wil hit you again. This way you should most likely only be slightly damaged by the body without getting the damage from the lasers. So when healing up with the hearts from the probes get back into the body of the boss. This is the reason the cross necklace is so important here. You should be able to kill him within 3-4 Minutes. Dao of pow is easily farmed because it only needs souls from normal enemies and the shards you get from enemies in the deserts. Phasesaber is a great weapon because it only needs the old one + a lot of crystals (5minutes to farm). You can hold down attack to keep swinging. Video Guide: More guides: Also, Jubba posted his own video here. He uses full necro set (pre Hardmode!) with Starcannon and 100 Fallen Stars as ammunition. His total defense was 35 (including potion buffs). Besides the Starcannon he used the Cobalt sword to finish the Destroyer off. Skeletron Prime: (Coming Soon) What you need for the Boss: Full Adamantite Armor It's best to have the Greater Healing potions with you Mechanical Skull to summon the boss Edit: 2 done, one to go. I'll do Skeletron tomorrow evening, propably. (Edit: Though there is a nice video on the forum which shows an easy way to kill him. Its using gravitation pots so it's different from me and i think i should complete this section so i will make the skeletron guide but not today,sorry. Good Skeletron Prime Guide it has got less information/text but you will find it very useful i think ) I'm using the images from the wiki. If i'm not allowed to do so please tell me so i will remove them.
