Joining issues

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). Do not use port 7778 or you will enter Leafos instead.

What to consider when joining on mobile

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

For those that own Terraria on steam, this protocol can be used
steam://rungameid/105600// -j -p 7777


Updated the info about donating money: Patreon instead of Donator rank.


Reordered the questions, wrote headings mostly in question format and added info about PVP and Survival. Updated some info.
Also added Phase info so that People don’t wonder and don’t misthink, that there are only mods.


Added more sources to learn about PVP, and improved the spelling, like with the fact that Tejdxa sometimes forgets to put periods at the end of a sentence. Improved and added details to the FAQ.


I swapped around the ordering of the PvP guides to put Beetle’s guide on the top, followed by the Viable Weapons guide, since those two have higher priority and are generally more important


Thanks for the edits.

A few things I should point out, this is unnecessary and inconsistent, it’s usually ! or ? and the . is omitted(no other header ends with a period)

Sandbox doesn’t need to be capitalized


Usually the periods. Syntax fixed.


My “How to Rush/Anti-rush” guide isn’t necessary for the beginner level of PvP, it’s meant for more intermediate/mid level players. If there is a guide i made for beginners, i will add it to this wiki.


Modified a subchapter and updated versions.


I have updated the list of moderators. (@Eltralor is now a moderator)


Renamed post to something more simplified in order to make it easier to read.

Additional Edits: (only @twofoursixeight can edit)

DEC 16 Adding notice at the top of the FAQ to inform it is a guide.


Edited some info, like how Legolas is also a Survival Manager and Eeries is one as well.


Guide completely washed and overhauled.


What is Leafos?


It’s the partner survival server of DG ran by Marcus101RR. It resets annually, and either currently(or perhaps just in the past) hosted modded terraria servers as well.

It also offers servers for Rust and Minecraft.


That sounds interesting, is it desktop only?


I’m not entirely certain as I am a desktop user, but from the little I’ve seen I believe it does offer mobile compatibility.
