Many people may be turned off by the gloomy tale and violent gameplay of The Forest, but fans will like the slick gameplay and heart-pounding moments.

There is no method to navigate in the original Forest game – the player does not have a map with which to locate himself in the game’s environment, and there isn’t even a simple compass to show the world’s directions. 

How to Get a Map and Compass- The Forest

You could get the map and compass by dying, but that’s not what we are looking at. This method doesn’t work in multiplayer, and some players don’t like the idea. We are looking at how to get these items without dying. 

Navigate the Map

To begin, navigate to the map and look for the mountain located directly north. Then, remove yourself from the shrubs and trees to see the surroundings. You’d have to go up and out of the woods to get out of it. Beginners will have a more challenging time understanding the compass, but they will eventually.

It’s easy to find the mountain once you’re out in the open; it’s usually to the north. So make a turn and head south; if you keep moving left and right, there is a high chance of a cannibal attack, and it’s easy to become disoriented; so don’t forget to keep heading south until you see the shore.

Follow the Shoreline

The southern border of the map can be found here. Follow the shoreline to the left and continue straight until you see a hut. You move around it until you find a built-in portion. Enter the settlement via the route.

This is the game’s largest village. If you’re playing in hard mode or just average, keep an eye out for cannibals. It would help if you used a tree to go around these and up to the rock in the end. This rock contains a cave entrance. You use a rope to descend inside the cave.

Follow the Light

Turn around and proceed towards the light and the enormous opening once you’re down from the rope. The map and compass are both located there. The map will appear when you press “M,” and you can close and open it. It is effective in both the cave and the outside world. So, if you want to access either item, left-click on it, and you’ll have it.

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.
