Since its release back in 2011, Terraria has become one of the best sandbox games ever made. Certainly, Re-Logic should take a lot of the credit with their updates being consistently brilliant. When Terraria 1.3 dropped in 2015 it added an entirely new endgame. Update 1.4, Journey’s End, is expected to do much the same later this year. However, it’s the modding scene that stands above all else. The sheer quantity of incredible content available through modding is staggering. Here are the five-best game-changing Terraria mods.


If we’re talking about adding content, there’s little need to look further than the Calamity Mod. Calamity adds over 1600 new items to Terraria. It also features several extra stages post-Moon Lord. For comparison, the Mood Lord has 145,000 health and is regarded as the hardest boss in vanilla. Calamity’s final boss, Supreme Calamitas, has 5,000,000 health.

The Calamity Mod also adds five brand new biomes to your world. All of these new biomes feature unique bosses. Speaking of bosses, there’s a lot of new ones to fight here. Including mini bosses, there’s a total of 31 additions. Calamity’s bosses are harder than regular bosses. They often require more thought, skill and preparation, even for veteran players.

If all that’s not enough for you, what about a brand-new class too? The new Rogue class adds a stealth mechanic to Terraria’s combat. This exclusive skill stacks based on how long you stand still or don’t use an item. Each stack of stealth increases damage, critical strike chance and movement speed. In the late game, this can result in some pretty game-breaking numbers.
