Planet Coaster allows you to build some of the most imaginative attractions in the history of theme parks. But you’ll need to remember to build appropriate roads leading to them if you want customers to enjoy them. And some of those roads will require building stairs.

Stairs in Planet Coaster are basically paths that lead up or down. So, to place them you need to first choose a path you want to build from the “paths” tab.

Now, place the beginning of your path on the map. Then, you can either press the “U” key to elevate the next part of the road (pressing it twice will turn the road into stairs) or press the “J” key to lower it (again, pressing it twice will turn the road into stairs).

You can also hold the left mouse button to choose manually how sloped do you want your path to be.

Making the Stairs You Want

Keep in mind that can be done with roads works the same way with stairs. You can change their length, width, and general appearance.

Thankfully, you won’t need to build every set of stairs needed in your theme park manually – if a shop or the attraction is close enough to the road, stairs to it appear automatically.

But you can also use the stairs to simply add some style and charm to the park – nothing says epic rollercoaster better than a wide, huge staircase leading up to it, right?

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.
