    You have to get another voodoo doll and toss it in again.

    Same thing happened to me. Luckily I only had two dolls to throw.

    I have a theory that you have to beat all bosses first.

    You may have to save and exit; and then retry, if not, than its a bug with the spawn, that ONLY one WoF can spawn in the world, under any circumstance.

    Also; the Pwnhammer will only work on that world. Its a very fickle item.

    Also; Obsidian Skin Potions, and Water walking Potions are pretty much a requirement for the bossfight, unless you built a platform to run across.

    If the guide is already dead when you try then the Wall of Flesh will not be summoned. Did a new guide already come into the game? If not then you'll have to wait until a new one spawns before throwing another doll into the lava.

    I'm having the same problem. I quit and reentered, a new guide had entered the world, and throwing the doll in the lava did nothing.

    I have the same problem :( I got it to spawn the first through third times but after that it wouldn't spawn anymore (and yes I made sure the guide had respawned :( )
    Is this a glitch or is something not being done right?

    Same problem here. The wall killed me first time around and now throwing the dolls into lava in the underworld does nothing. New guides have arrived and everything.

    I'm going to see if killing a boss again or waiting a few in-game days will do anything

    It's actually a bug / glitch. Some people have been able to toss about 4-6 dolls and it eventually spawns, some it just doesn't. Probably will be resolved soon.

    There is only 1 condition:
    - Guide must be alive. If he dies once you must have a house for him so he respawns.

    I've noticed that the "Horrified" debuff won't go away--but only when I'm close to the center of the map.

    What's up with that?

    You have to do some shit with Steam, pretty much just right click terraria in steam, go Properties>Local Files>Verify

    If the problem persists, go into your Steam folder, in C:\, Steamapps>Common>Terraria, then delete everything there, And then re-verify the game cache.
    Don't worry, this won't delete your worlds, or your characters.

    Its good to do that every update for every game, since Steam can be buggy sometimes.

    Off Topic: Most of the problems here, I've never encountered, I've had friends encountering them, told them to do this, and it worked. Trust me on this. Never trust Steam to Update your games manually. If its a once in a while update; like once every few months, than I'll be fine. But always Verify your game files whenever they are changed.

    edit: With the NPC's not respawning, The text for the Goblin Army bug is a glitch into itself; (heh..Glitchception...) That can be fixed by the process listed above.

    EDIT: Verified that re-doing your steam cache will fix this issue.

    Not the thread to ask in. If you have steam problems, check out the Steam Technical Support area. We don't offer steam support here, but feel free to create a thread for Terraria support.
