This beginner’s guide should help you find your footing, with some key tips to help you get your footing in the endless procedurally caves of Core Keeper.

1. “X” marks the spot

Have you been exploring the caves and found some X marks on the floor? Well, make sure you don’t ignore them. Instead, use your shovel on the same spot as the X is and you’ll be able to dig up some valuable items, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for them.

2. Craft a chest as soon as you can

Chests in this game are extremely important, as they allow you to store valuable items that you don’t want to risk losing should you die.

Thankfully, crafting one is relatively simple. It requires just 5 pieces of wood and a crafting table. Make sure to store all the valuables that you don’t really need while exploring and mining, as you lose everything you’re carrying on death.

3. Wood is important

You can find and harvest wood in the cave, and it’s absolutely vital that you get as much of it as you can. It can be used for a lot of crafting recipes, such as the very important torches and the aforementioned chests, so definitely make sure to get every piece of wood that you can.

4. Use the map to find shortcuts

Check your map when you wish to return to your base to find the shortest route back. It can be faster and safer to just dig through a wall in a straight line back to base than retrace your steps, depending on how you explored.

5. Water is vital

Water is necessary to grow crops, something we’ll cover more in depth in the next tip. But you should make a mental note of every spot where you find water, and try to find one near to your base if possible, so that you can refill your watering can with ease.

6. Grow crops and set up a little farm for yourself

As mentioned previously, you can use water to grow crops. During your exploration of the cave, you will eventually find seeds. Simply tile the ground with a hoe and use the seeds on the tiled ground to play them, then use the watering can to water the plants.

After a while, you’ll have grown food for yourself, which is vital to manage your health and hunger in this game. Definitely something you should do ASAP.

7. You heard that stomping noise? Stay away!

If you heard a stomping noise and wondered what it is, it’s a big strong boss monster called Glurch the Abominous Mass. Basically a massive version of the regular slime enemies, you should absolutely stay away from him until you are truly well prepared.

As mentioned previously, you lose everything on death and it’s very likely that meeting the boss right away will result in your death. We can’t stress it enough, make sure to leave your valuables in a chest and be very well prepared before you dare go near the stomping noise!

The latest update brings tons of things into the game and with it, a number of achievements to complete.

One of the content is called “A Rare Realm” achievement where you will have to create one of three known world seeds released in the latest update.

Unlike some of the achievements where you will have to walk a certain number of steps, dig a specific number of blocks, and the like, the achievement we will be tackling today can be obtained fairly early into your game.

In this guide, we will show you how to create one of the latest World seeds in Terraria 1.4.4 and nab the “A Rare Realm” achievement at the same time in Terraria 1.4.4.

Guide on How to Get A Rare Realm Achievement in Terraria

The achievement unlocks if you create a world that is unique in Terraria. These realms can be created after you select your character and create a specific realm with unique effects.

Some examples of these are the no traps seed, zenith seed, remix seed and so much more.

Start the game and select your character

To begin, launch your game from your desktop. This achievement can also be unlocked on the mobile version of Terraria on IOS and Android. Next, select your character and click play.

Create a New World

You will have to create a new world from scratch on the option of which world to play on. Select create a new world and fill out the world details.

Be mindful of the difficulty level of your character when creating a new world otherwise, you won’t be able to play in the world you have created.

In our case, our character difficulty is set to classic so we will be creating a world on the classic difficulty settings.

You can freely select the world size and the evil alignment. This won’t affect you getting the achievement in the end.

Next, select a world name and on the seed tab, type in “no traps”. With everything set, click the create button.

Wait for your world to be created

Depending on the world’s size, you will have to wait for the world to finish generating. A small world will take you about a minute or so whereas the larger worlds could take around 3 to 4 minutes.

The No Traps seed will let you generate a world with no traps in it so you can explore the world with no fear of booby traps in the areas.

Select and Play in Your Newly Created World

When the realm is fully generated select it from the list of worlds that you have created. Entering the world for the first time will grant you the “A Rare Realm” achievement. Now go explore your new “Trap Free” world with leisure.
