The 1.0.6 patch was a large update in terms of new mechanics and balancing. It also added a lot of decorative (and some functional) furniture.

New additions

New items

New enemies

New features

  • Critical hits - There is now a small chance you will do more damage to an enemy.
  • Damage types - Damage is now separated into Melee, Ranged and Magic damages. These will be used going forward for a few different systems, such as buffs and debuffs. Items will list what kind of damage they do in their tooltip so you know what will be affected by what buff.
  • Trash Can slot. The slot is located on the bottom right of the Inventory. Placing an item here will destroy it, however the item will be saved in memory until another item is destroyed, allowing you to retrieve it if you wish. Shift-clicking an item will move it to the Trash Can slot.
  • There are now Loot All, Deposit All, and Quick Stack functions when using a storage item.
  • Hotbar slots now show their respective shortcut keys.
  • Right clicking on an accessory or a piece of armor in your inventory will auto-equip it provided that you hold down shift.
  • It is no longer possible to drop items through the spaces between the inventory slots.
  • Some Tools (primarily pickaxes) now give you an idea in their tool-tip of what they can mine, eg. "Can mine Meteorite".
  • There are now four ammo slots. Ammo may be placed here to de-clutter your inventory. Weapons will take ammo from these slots first, and will then take from any in the inventory after they are empty.
  • Hotbar slots that have a ranged weapon on them will show the current used ammo count on them.
  • There is now a lock toggle in your inventory, that when clicked, will not allow you to change slots via clicking. Instead, you must use the 0-9 hotkeys or the mouse wheel to change slots.
  • Hotkeys can now be used to change selected item when the inventory is open.
  • Shops now sell items back to you. Shift-clicking items will automatically sell them.
  • You can now clear and cancel your chat message by hitting Esc.
  • There is now an option to disable pickup text.
  • There is now a hotkey to use the Grappling Hook/Ivy Whip (default hotkey is E).
  • You now regenerate health depending on the last time you received damage. The more time since you were damaged, the quicker you regenerate.
  • Mana now recharges depending when how much you have in your mana pool. The more mana you currently have, the faster it recharges. You also recharge faster when standing still compared to when moving.
  • There are now 3 difficulty modes that can be set when creating a character.
    • Softcore - Drop coins on death, keep max health and mana values.
    • Mediumcore - Drop all items on death, keep max health and mana values.
    • Hardcore - Drops all items and deletes your character on death. On death the character will become a Ghost that can move about, but not interact with the world.
  • Placing background walls is more simple, as 1 block holes are automatically filled in.
  • Added 19 new hairstyles.
  • You can now choose to have a male/female character voice.
  • When choosing your hairstyle, you may now right click to cycle through the hair selections backwards.
  • Added several new randomized game subtitle captions which show up next to the game title in Windowed mode.
  • The Corruption now has new music.
  • There are new sounds for the following actions/events:
  • Some sounds have a randomizing pitch change (like sword swinging), to make them have more variance.


Bug fixes

  • Bottled Water can no longer be crafted by standing near lava.
  • Night Owl Potion now works correctly.
  • Piggy Banks should no longer float when the ground beneath the table it is on is removed from beneath them.
  • Melee speed increase items are now calculated correctly, and deal more damage.
  • Cacti no longer destroy blocks as they grow.
  • Corrected some spelling errors and also the placement of ‘%’ in some potion tool-tips.

Terraria Wiki notes

  • Many potions had their duration increased from 2 minutes to 5 minutes.
