Hello all, VantagePoint here. I've seen a lot of threads, asking how to kill the current end-game boss in Terraria, Skeletron. So, I've decided to try and put an end to them, and write a dummies guide to taking him out. To do this, i've written it in a few steps. Step one: Acquiring the equipment. First, you're going to need shadowscale armour or better. You can get this by slaying the other bosses in the game, and making the armour out of the shadowscales and demonite ore they drop. You're then going to go into Hell world, and mine hellstone. To do this successfully, you're going to want to mine the hellstone while facing towards the fire blasts from the imps. If you have a demonite pickaxe, the pick will actually deflect the blasts while you mine the ore, making this very easy. Make a full set of Molten armour. Now you have two choices. You can get a friend to give you a Handgun (Acquired from the dungeon) and make a Phoenix Blaster (Handgun + Hellstone, Best weapon in game when used with Meteor Shot) Or you can make a Molten Fury (Bow) using Hellstone, and find around 250 arrows. Craft a ton of Healing Potions using blue mushrooms at an alchemy station. Step Two: Building the battle area. You're now going to find the dungeon, and dig up all the little notches on the roof, and make it flat. Then you're going to take some dirt or whatever, and extend the roof as far as possible, making a long platform. Step Three: Fighting him . Activate him at night, and immediately jump up onto the platform. Begin shooting at him (With the weapon you have). Remember, never stop shooting unless you need to drink a potion Keep your health above 50%. It's easy to lose track and die when you forget to drink potions. When he does his main attack (rolling his head at you) Be sure to keep infront of him and run along the platform. Remember to keep firing. I understand that it is easier said than done, but this is, in general, the best way to fight him. Using this, it will take you a maximum of 3 shots at it, before you get the hang of it and eventually beat him. If anyone has any suggestions, and or guides/strategies of their own, please post them here, and lets try and form a database of Skeletron slaying information!
