Ribbons, officially called Medals, are needed to buy almost every building in the game, except for shops and houses. As you’ll play the game more, you might find that the amount you can get from the quests is not enough for all your farming needs.
So how can you get more?
How to Get Ribbons in Farm Together
For most of the game, you will mainly be rewarded with ribbons for doing quests. But those quests will take much longer to complete as your level will increase, limiting the amount of ribbons you can earn in a reasonable amount of time.
Fortunately, there are a few alternatives.
If you have a lot of coins at your disposal, you might use the gift shop to simply buy ribbons. But the prices are pretty high – one ribbon will cost you 250 000 coins. You can always use the Pawn Shop, however the exchange rate there isn’t much better – you will need to pay ten gold nuggets for a single ribbon.
The best way to earn ribbons is through the use of three specific buildings: the Cheese Stand, the Jam Stall, or the Honey Stand. Selling you products through each of those gives you ribbons, but they are not easy to operate.
For the Cheese Stand, you’ll need to first raise animals like goats and cows for their milk and then turn that milk into cheese with the Diary building. Using the cheese stand, you can sell ten pieces of cheese every minute for one ribbon.
The Jam Stall works almost identical, only instead of animals you’ll need fruit trees and instead of Diaries, you want Fruit Press. Since trees can be harvested more than animals, this is the method of earning ribbons that most players like the most.
Honey Stand only needs honey from beehives, but not only does it consume 20 honey per use – beehives can only be harvested every 24 hours, making this method very slow.
Terraria: How to Defeat New Daytime Empress in Terraria 1.4.4 Update
Strategy guide to defeating the Daytime Empress in the latest Terraria Update.
Even before the Terraria 1.4.4 update, defeating the Empress of Light during the day is an absolute nightmare. Especially when facing her much harder difficulty levels.
She has the potential of one-hitting you and your strategy involves stacking multiple items and buffs to dodge her attacks as well as having a high enough damage output to end the fight fast.
The latest 1.4.4 Update is a lot harder. Now, dodge potions and buffs do not affect her and the only way to survive her onslaught is to not get hit.
In this guide, we will be showing you some useful tips to remain unscathed as you challenge one of the hardest bosses to beat, the Daytime Empress of Light and get a Terra Prisma in Terraria 1.4.4
How to Defeat New Daytime Empress in Terraria 1.4.4
Like any summoned boss battles in Terraria, the first thing you should set up is your battle arena. Place wooden boards for you to land on and easily pivot as you dodge her attacks.
This will later prove very useful even if you rely on flying items since turning from left to right on the ground is a lot faster than moving in the air.
Choose your weapon and strategy carefully
If you already have the Terra Prisma then it is a great idea for you to use it. The item summons prismatic lacewing to follow and damage opponents and for us, the best strategy in facing her is to Summon minions and deal additional damage with a whip or a ranged weapon.
Buffs to use
Focus on potions that increase your speed like the swiftness potion. Mix these up with a summoning potion to increase your minion Spawn and get potions that increase your max damage output overall.
You won’t have to use any defense potions since you will be focusing on not getting hit for you to get the Terra Prisma item. Besides, you will most likely get one hit so it’s pointless to use defense potions.
Armors to use
Use armors that either increase your summon capacity or enhances summon damage. You won’t have to use high defense items since they will be rendered useless with the boss’s high damage output.
Facing the Boss
It will take some time to analyze her attack pattern. To play it safe engage her and move in an L direction. Drop down and move horizontally away from her. Be careful with her range attacks because most of these have good tracking capabilities.
Area of Effect attack pattern
When she pauses to deliver her area of attacks you might want to position yourself high. When the first laser lights flare up dodge by going down and slowly move clockwise in the map. She will Spawn 2 to 3 AOE attacks before reverting to her tracking projectiles.
To summarize, on tracking projectile attacks move down and away from the boss. For are of effects set her first attack up by heading high until the first AOE flare spawns then make your way down and move clockwise until she switches her attacks again.
It might be difficult at first but it isn’t impossible to do. All you need is some practice and proper timing to pull this off and get out on top.
