First off, you have to understand the basic goal of the game. As you might have surmised, you run an animal shelter. You take animals, take care of them and get them ready to be adopted by a loving family. We’ll go over every step of the process giving you tips to take care of your animals.

One first tip: if you ever find yourself unsure how to progress, there’s a list of tasks on the top left of the screen.

Taking Animals In

For your first day, go to your office and click on the computer. Select the “pets to take in” option and you’ll see a list of available animals. You can only take care of one for now, as you’re just starting out. The animal will be delivered in a van. Take them in and take them to their proper quarters. Dogs and cats have different quarters.

Check the Charts

Every animal has a chart that denotes all of its current stats and needs. Things such as thirst, health, adaptability, special traits, and the like. Familiarize yourself with these charts as they are key to knowing how to make the animal happier and healthier. Special traits will earn you bonuses if they align with a potential owner’s wants.

Feed and Groom Animals

From your computer, you can buy things such as food and other supplies. These are delivered by drones. Open the delivery boxes and take the things you bought. For things like food, you’ll want to have it in your inventory and then go to your pet’s kennel. Hold the food or water and pour it into the proper bowls. Your pets will eat and drink whenever they need. Make sure their bowls remain full.

Sometimes, animals might be injured or dirty. That’s when you’ll have to groom them. The game will be pretty helpful and tell you which things to buy and do when this happens. Make sure you keep your animals healthy and clean to increase their happiness.

Pet and Play With Animals

You can go up to any of your animals and click to pet them. This will make them happier and increase their trust in you. You can also take animals out of their kennels and into more open spaces and play with them. This also increases their happiness and trust.

Put Animals up for Adoption

Once animals reach a certain level of adaptability, you have to take a photo of them. You’ll need to buy a camera from your computer first. When you take a good enough photo, you can use it to put up ads to find potential new owners for an animal. Scan the picture at your computer. Then select the animal you wish to put up for adoption and click on “create ad”. Choose the picture you just scanned and confirm by clicking on create ad again.

Now on your computer, you’ll get submissions from potential owners. You can send employees for inspection, which will check for things such as the potential owner’s house and other conditions. If you wish to allow them to adopt, click on the Match button. If you wish to reject the application, just click on discard and wait for another one. Wait after matching and a van will come to pick up the desired animal and take them to their new family.

That’s pretty much the gist of the game’s basics and the overall process of getting an animal adopted. Make sure to take care of all of the animals’ needs and you’ll have an easy time finding them happy new homes.

Dig, Fight, explore, build. These are the essential things to do when playing Terraria. And all these tasks are linked to how likely you can survive the world that you have created.

There are different sections in the world with different types of mobs to defeat as well as bosses scattered across the Realm. And the different weapon types in the game can make defeating these mobs and bosses easier or harder depending on your preference or style of fighting.

The latest update has revamped a lot of things in Terraria and this time, it has done considerable tweaking on melee-based combat. But that doesn’t mean that they didn’t release ranged weapons in the latest installment of the game.

In this guide, we will list our top 3 Epic Weapons to try out when defeating mobs and bosses in the latest 1.4.4 update of Terraria’s Labor of Love Content.

Best Weapons to use in Update 1.4.4 in Terraria

Out of Several weapons that were released in the latest update, we have selected 3 of our favourite Epic Weapons to showcase in this guide.

 It’s a given that the weapons players find useful in clearing content can’t be categorized as the best overall since different Terrarians have different playstyles and preferences, our top 3 favourites are based on how easy the weapon is to use and of course how we ranked them according to our tests.

For the latest weapons in update 1.4.4, we recommend the wand of Frosting which is a new wand, the trimerang which is a new boomerang and the latest Yoyo called the Hive Five.

The High-Five (Yoyo weapon)

The Hive-Five is part of the Queen Bee Crafting Rewards. Defeat the Queen Bee in her Lair to obtain the crafting recipe for the Yoyo.

Defeat the Queen Bee for the Hive-Five crafting recipe and items

To Craft it, you will need 14 beeswaxes. The drops when defeating the Queen Bee will give you more than enough beeswax to create it from your workbench.

There are mixed feelings when it comes to Yoyo-type weapons. They provide good range damage but a bit of finesse when used.

The damage you deal depends on you hitting the yo-yo head onto the enemy. Overshooting or mistiming your throw will leave you open to attacks especially when the enemy closes in on you when your yoyo is extended.

How to use the Hive-Five

The Hive-Five is great to use if you manage to time your attacks to hit the enemy. In addition, it spawns killer bees to deal damage to the enemy every time you strike them with the yoyo head.

Although it has a weak knockback, it compensates for its fast attack speed so be sure to time your shots and position yourself a bit far from the enemy and go further back when they get too close.

The Wand of Frosting

If you are planning to be a mage then you will feel right at home with the Wand of Frosting. Similar to the wand of Sparking, this new wand has almost identical damage to the old wand. The only difference is it grants frost damage instead of spark and is easy to acquire early in the game.

Combine blocks of ice with torches to create ice torches

To Craft the wand of Frosting, you will need x99 ice torches and x1 Wand of Sparking. The wand can be found in random wooden boxes close to the surface of caves while the ice torches require you to combine ice blocks that you can mine on the ice Realm and combine them with regular torches.

When you have the required number of items to create the wand, head over to your workbench and craft the Wand of Frosting.

How to Use Wand of Frosting

The wand is easy to use. You only have to point your wand in the direction of the enemy to launch your frost magic towards the enemy.

Hitting an enemy will cause it to have splash damage that can hit enemies behind the first one. This will grant frozen effects for a short duration which is valuable when trying to clear mob clusters in the game.

Just be careful not to focus the wand on clearing enemy bosses since the damage the wand creates is very low and not ideal for use in a fight with bosses.

The Trimarang, an upgraded version of the Boomerang

The Boomerang holds a special place in our hearts since this is the first weapon we managed to unlock the first time we played Terraria a few years ago.

The Trimarang is the answer to what if you combine the 3 boomerangs you can craft or collect in the game.

It suffers from a lowered DPS but makes up for it by launching 3 different boomerangs in quick succession making this weapon one of our top favourites.

How to Craft the Trimarang

To get the Trimarang, you will need to collect the 3 enchanted boomerang variants in the game.

These are the enchanted wooden boomerang, which can be crafted with a wooden boomerang and a fallen star, the ice boomerang which can be obtained on ice Chests and the shroomerang which has a small chance of dropping from spore bats or mushroom Biome Chests.

Once you have all three, craft the Trimarang from your workbench and equip it into your active inventory slot.

Trimarang performance

If one boomerang is good enough, imagine if you can launch three boomerangs in sequence. With a fast attack speed, you can be unstoppable against enemies coming at you from one direction.

The constant hits of the Trimarang deals will greatly slow down enemies rushing towards you and can wipe them all out in a matter of seconds.  They also perform decently against bosses in the game and are a must-have if you plan on clearing the game with rapid-range attacks that have the potential to stop enemies dead on their tracks.
