I would rather rename this to "Rain Event", as it is no Biome and can happening in any biome. And I'm pretty sure it wasn't added in 1.1 and tweaked in 1.2 afterwards, it was, indeed added in 1.2. -- 13:52, 1 October 2013 (UTC)

As in the patch notes, it is listed as a new kind of 'Weather Pattern' along with Blizzards, whether these are considered events or biomes I am not sure but biome seemed like the most obvious answer as it changes the environment. --JanitorJim (talk) 10:31, 1 October 2013 (EST)
I disagree with that, biomes are usually generated with the world and therefor are something that is permanent and not temporary. If it is considered a biome, that would also mean that there could be two active biomes in one area, that doesn't seem to follow the logic rules of biomes (if you don't count the places where one biome is changing into another). --SPGardebiter (talk) 14:54, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
I also don't think it's a biome. It's a time-dependant event analogous to the blood moon, which is not a biome either and which also has its own effects and specific mobs. Frostnine (talk) 15:22, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
Considering it can happen in a desert biome too (yes, that's right, bug?) It's more like an event than a biome change — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cyb3rhusky (talk • contribs) at 08:58, 4 October 2013 (UTC)
If this is a biome, then blood moon and solar eclipse are biomes too --GauHelldragon2 (talk) 06:14, 11 October 2013 (UTC)

Walking fish and fish drops

We might want to add the walking fish or regular fish to the mobs list and the fish items in the items list Thaky (talk) 16:29, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Why not, I put it in. If someone disagrees, they can take it out! -- Camelotcrusade (talk) 18:58, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Rain chance and footnotes

I added some text to footnote one. Let me know if you like it! Also, do you think that part or the whole footnote should be added to the "Notes" section? The information is useful, but also lengthy for a footnote. 16:16, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

Updated photo

Can anyone update the biome banner photo please. The reason is the blizzard has a visual effect, so it needs to be updated. Thanks! --IosKent (Talk Page - Contribs) 06:21, 10 September 2016 (UTC)--

I'll get to work on this right now. Eraloiz (talk) 07:16, 10 September 2016 (UTC)
Ok thanks --IosKent (Talk Page - Contribs) 07:25, 10 September 2016 (UTC)--
Sorry it took so long, I had to wait for rain. Is the image I uploaded okay? It looked too bright compared to the rain side with the background enabled. Eraloiz (talk) 09:10, 10 September 2016 (UTC)

Merge with Wind

I believe this page should be merged with Wind to create a greater "Weather" page. Since Rain and Wind themselves can combine to form a Storm/Monsoon, and are both lumped into the weather controls in Journey Mode.

Side note I just thought of: It should probably be combined with Sandstorm as well.

TheIkol23 (talk) 01:59, 20 May 2020 (UTC)

I would disagree with this, since all weather events have different effects. Merging them into one page could make information on specific weather events more annoying to find. Perhaps a greater Weather page could describe how certain Weather events can combine, then provide links to the separate weather event pages. TDplay (talk) 13:32, 15 June 2020 (UTC)
I agree. Quick link to Talk:Weather, where there is a discussion about this as well. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 23:55, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

Rain no longer stops when re-entering a world

I just noticed on my PC copy of Terraria that rain no longer stops when re-entering a world with rain active. (even when Terraria's closed then re-opened)

I distinctly remember it used to stop, even with the rain briefly falling and then stopping upon re-enter. Does anybody know when this was changed? -Gulliblepikmin 14:07, 28 December 2022 (UTC)

Basic information is misleading

Since before 1.4, the mechanics of rain lasting 24 minutes had already been done away with. And remained with it until today. The rain probably lasts shorter and longer than 24 minutes of real time. This happens on every current platform. The last version on which I observed the phenomenon was 1.3 where the rain lasted 15 minutes. Personally, in I noticed that it lasted a maximum of 29 minutes and the shortest 8 minutes. Required code decompilation to confirm possible new current rain rules.

Thanks for noting. I added my findings from a source code inspection (Desktop version Desktop, Terraria.Main.StartRain) to the article. --Rye Greenwood (talk) 17:50, 28 May 2023 (UTC)
