    Redigit said:

    The best I can give you for it's release is that it probably won't be any sooner then November, and quite possibly sometime in December.

    Red said:

    Right now, we are aiming for a December 1st release



    for letting me know!

    After Redigit revealing 2 new ores, 1 new mode called "Hardmode Corruption"(This is actually unknown, this is what he said "(I was playing around with "hardmode" corruption today. After setting the world update rate to 100x the corruption spread across a desert, through the jungle, and completely swallowed up one of the oceans. Luckily I was able to stop it on the other side of the world by planting some Hallowed Seeds. Fun times), 1 possible new set and possibly a new biome/boss we can start speculating and discussing these stuff.

    Keep in mind, this thread is to speculate and talk about these new stuff, therefore there is no need to create a thread about it, the purpose of this is to have a little nice discussion about all the new incoming stuff.

    Here links for the new stuff:

    So I will start this by throwing a question to the air, do you guys think the new armor set will be better than molten? or just mid-tier?

    I will be throwing these question to keep the thread active and try to avoid pointless arguments.

    I think the sword from the cobalt thing will be an upgraded nights edge, but since nights edge is OP enough, this one will add a debuff to enemys. Maybe the crafting thing would be like 1 Night's Edge + 25 mithril = 1 XXXXXX

    This is so awsome its almost insane, when this comes out its going to be just amazing.

    Edit: As for the new armor, im guessing the rairity is going to be comaprible to the rairity of Demonite ore, being more rare of course, without the ability to get it from boss drops. As for the power of it, to get Hellstone all you have to do is dig to hell and kill some parts of EoW to get shadow scales+demonite ore for the pick, but imagine if you had to get your full set of demonite without it being droped by bosses? Having to mine it all? I have a feeling you would have quite a bit of Hellstone before then. Also, as of now the Molten pick cant break any blocks that the nightmare pick cant, so this might be the solution.

    My guess is that its going to be better then molten, but my guess is as good as yours.

    I think not, Mithril and Cobalt can be found underground, and maybe even as rare as Gold or Silver... So it would probably be after Gold but before Shadow. But, if you needed say a Molten Pick to mine it, and everytime you touch Cobalt ore, you get Metallic poisioning and Mithril gave you temporary Blindness, then it would be much better than Molten.
  5. Blazingmind

    Blazingmind Penguin

    Actully, redgit said that it would only appear in the world AFTER some thing was meet, lets say hardest boss EVER, or simply getting a molten items (only said this about cobalt, but i suspect mithril will be also)

    Where they say that?
  7. ButterBuns

    It will be higher than Molten

    Ah, I just read it, check the third page of the Dev Blog with the picture of the Cobalt Ore... Too lazy to post a link

    I found it!!

    In the evil desert thing (is the spelling right? i dont wanna make sand yummy >.>)
    The new ores will be placed in your world after accomplishing a specific task. You will of course have to find them on your own, though the creatures you encounter underground won't be so easy this time around...

    The hallowed seeds are one of the ways to create a new biome that will help to stop the spread of the corruption

    I FOUND ITT@!!!!!!


    Yep you spelled it right, but it would be AWESOME if you could eat sand without dying... from razor sharp fragments of rocks going down your throat... -Shudder-

    Also, if you have to create a new world to get new update stuff, like the Aboveground Jungle, how do they plan to add Cobalt and Mithril? Would it just... sprout underground from stone like Mushrooms, Glowing Mushrooms, and the Alchemic Plants?

    Also, thanks a lot for creating this thread Darkas, now we can avoid the people who keep adding unneeded threads... Also, is ughmaster's 4:57 thing a meme now? Am I allowed to spread it around? On the forums?

    I believe you are misquoting him. The devs have stated in the past that they wished the Corruption was more threatening, that players would take more of an active role in stopping its spread.

    The quotes around hardmode implies it was a poorly chosen word communicating just how virulent the new Corruption is, not that it is somehow linked to character difficulty. (Exactly how would that work anyways?)

    I wonder if people will start replacing the pick axe with the drill. I guess it depends on how powerful the drill is and what else it can do, if it does anything else.:D

    i think it will be a new boss, or you would have had to kill ALL the bosses, i hope its somthing creative, like have all the npc, kill all the bosses, and have gotten a molten pick and hamaxe, or somthing ENTIRELY new that they would add. Anyone else hopeing for a new rare enemy drop?
    OH AND, darkas, arnt ya gonna stickey this?
  15. ThatAmazingPerson

    ThatAmazingPerson Bone Serpent

    I think the new arm would be the same tier as molten, molten being melee, cobalt being ranged/magic and mithril being ranged/magic

    If the drill is anything like the drill in this thread *many of his suggestions 'happened' to be in the updates to come after he posted*:

    Then oil would be needed too!

    What do you suggest me to put there then?

    *sighs about 12-year-olds on powerdrives that have nothing better to do that either piss people off because they are ignorant or just wanna troll*
    But yeah, the new sets look nice. Wondering what the event will be.
