A lot of FAQ info and links for reference.

One place for many questions. Still wip.

You quickly press your movement keys in the order provided in quick succession. Such as double-tapping the down key within one second.

Ability Rating Chart by @tsukifuto.#6948

Gives a good idea of how abilities perform and wish ability info.

[b]Some useful unlisted lobby commands
There are more listed here, but not all of them may be functional or useable. Abilities and arena info listed generally will not work.

/lobby chat
Toggles chat between lobby-only and public.
/lobby upall
Toggles. When enabled, a single purchase from a mana or hp chest will spend all points at once to the maximum number of purchases possible (when points run out or the cap for that stat is met)
/lobby ts
Transfers score from your player to another. Syntax: /lobby ts Ex: /lobby ts Rofle 200 /lobby ts “Lord Avery” 1240. Name is case-sensistive and if it has spaces, use quotations.
/j z existing OR /join zombies existing
Joins an existing zombies lobby that is at round 3 or below and not private. Equivalent of jumping into the water pool
/j z new OR /join zombies new
Creates a new standard zombies lobby that is public.
/lobby protect
When you are the only player in the lobby (you can create a new lobby via /j z new) this sets the lobby to invite only (/invite playername) (Removed, now use /j z -p or /join zombies private)
/lobby list
Lists all lobbies and zombies arenas that exist. Not all of them can be voted for nor selected.
/lobby version
Does as says.
/lobby menu
Shows the lobby menu again. Possibly redundant as the menu updates quite frequently.

Map and class equipment info by @UltimaA#8352

A list of all maps with their classes, items, item prices, and item stats.

Crew directions (also in the general faq above)

More verbose directions for crew.
Crew is a free set of perks for those who OWN THE GAME on steam.
If you indeed have not pirated the game, crew is available at https://t.dark-gaming.com/crew
Then you login with your ingame account on the server, then authenticate your copy of terraria via steam
Be certain to have your Account Info-> Privacy Settings -> My Profile > Public -> Game Details > Public
You can later revert your privacy settings once you have confirmed crew works.
If you have the badge on t.dark-gaming.com BUT do not have the perks, go to https://t.dark-gaming.com/fixcrew

If you are pirating, have steam account issues, playing exclusively on Mobile, or own the game on GOG instead you can get crew by exchanging 50,000 dp (currently impossible with the current state of the server economy or for 2 credits. Credits are obtained via donating or voting. Credits have high value due to what they can be used for elsewhere in the trading system, including gambling some for one of any kind of item. 0.05 credits per vote or 40 votes to get 2 credits, or 1 cred = $1USD donation.

How to join the server

Make sure you put the ip address (t.dark-gaming.com) in the section where it says “Enter Server IP Address:” and should appear like this

Then put the port (7777) in the section where it says “Enter Server Port:” which should look like this:

Then press enter or accept to join the server.
*Be sure you are on the current version of pc terraria ( as of now) or the latest update of mobile (1.3 update) before joining. Modified clients or older versions of terraria like TModloader are incompatible.

Why can’t I join?

Be sure you have joined correctly following the directions above ^.

Stuck on "Connecting to"

If other servers work fine then you might be peer-blocked or the server might be offline. Contact staff on the server discord or make a new topic in #help-support to resolve this.

Stuck on "Checking ip... Complete!"

The specific dimension you are joining might be down. Try using a different port such as 7776 or 7779 instead, and switch to your desired server/dimension with the dimension’s command name listed in /dimensions (such as /items to go to free items).

Account Issues

How do I login?

You should attempt to register (if you haven’t already) with a unique name that would be unlikely to be taken by another player.
Do /register "password" (the password being one you choose and keep private) in /rift and read the feedback message it gives.

Note: Syntax should not include <> or your username.
Example: my player name is Rainbow Airplanes and I want my password to be Two Cars123. I would join on a character named Rainbow Airplanes and do the command /register "Two Cars123" then /login "Two Cars123".
I would not do /register "Rainbow Airplanes" "Two Cars123" or /register <Two Cars123>.

You do not have permission to use this command

Then you are already logged in. You can see you are a member when you chat: you have blue text and a title of [Member]

You already have an account called “PlayerName”, use the that to login

Then use /rename to rename yourself to that name or login with a character that has the exact same name

Your name “NameOfYourCharacter” has already been used by someone [else] to register

You can change your name or login if you were the one to register it.
To change your name type /rename "your new name"

Once you do that and register, you can login to it in the future by using /login “your new name” “your password” " then do as the message says

Successfully registered account "Your name"

Then do /login password (the same password used to register)

Accounts cannot be deleted or renamed. If you forget your password, contact an administrator on the server discord

Mobile Support

Official announcement: Mobile Support
Known issues. These are on the server’s github issues tracker to be fixed.

  • Mobile users cannot deal damage in pvp.
  • Mobile users in survival having issue with item drops.

Unable to join this server. Please make sure you connect to a compatible Terraria server intended for the latest mobile version.

The mobile version currently does not like our kick messages. If you get this message check that:

  • You are not banned
  • Your name contains only ascii characters
  • Your name does not have too many capital letters in it


Trading system command items NEVER run out of or consume item durability. It’s a visual bug.

Item dropping is disabled in survival for normal members. Only players with crew can drop items. This is to prevent cheaters from giving out items.

Any questions? Post below or on the server discord
