Release date: 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 http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/disco-cavern.58110/page-18#post-1045258 Thanks ryanward87 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: http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/so-much-mithril.55202/ http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/evil-desert.55093/ http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/hawoooooo.57225/ http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/holy-water.56686/ http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/disco-cavern.58110/ http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/lighting-update.57631/ http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/wall-of-fle-text.63441/ http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/one-for-the-ladies.63042/ 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?
