Hero Siege consists of a pretty simple gameplay loop – traverse the area, get to the boss and use the portal at the end to travel to the next act.
But after finishing act VI, you might realize that the portal at the end sends you back to the starting location, the Town of Inoya. So, how can you get to the Astral Encampment, the first location of the seventh act?
How to Get to Astral Encampment in Hero Siege
Unfortunately, the road to the Astral Encampment is not free. Though the game doesn’t tell you that at first, the seventh act is a part of a paid DLC called “Wrath of Mevius”. It’s the fourth DLC the game has received and it currently costs 2.49 USD.
But I Was There Before!
There were a few instances that gave players access to the Astral Encampment when they were playing in multiplayer. The reason for that is not clear, but once players tried going back to that location on their own, they weren’t able to.
This might be some sort of a weird bug, but It seems to happen very inconsistently. It’s also unclear how far can the player go if they’ll get into the Astral Encampment that way. So, if you were one of the people who got a short taste of the game’s seventh act for free, unfortunately, you’ll have to buy the DLC to experience the rest.

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.
