The Top Ten Terraria Challenges

1 Merfolk Challenge

This one is very creative, but difficult. Put a fish bowl on your as your helmet and get a Neptune's shell. This makes you breathe in water, but not in air. (Hint: to beat the wall of flesh, get gills potions.)

2 Fishing Challenge

I like this idea! I will try this out for myself, however I'm gonna have to chop down a tree and make a workbench to make a fishing rod... and also have to somehow get bait.

Unless I can just go into the workshop world and get a fishing rod and get 20 bait.

You can only get items from fishing.


3 Summoner Challenge

Only use summoning items, like the slime staff.
