One place for many questions. Still WIP.
Accounts (more info at: Account Management Guide) and permissions
You should attempt to register (if you haven’t already) with a unique name that would be unlikely to be taken by another player.
/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> due to the fact that these statements have no quotation marks.
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]
/rename to rename yourself to that name or login with a character that has the exact same name
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"
/login password (the same password used to register)
Follow Account Management Guide
You can only rename your account when:
- it has too many caps or repeated characters

Phase is a chat service that allows users to chat with the Terraria server without opening Terraria, by using a web browser or opening a web application.
This means that someone enters text from Phase.
After you have created an in-game account, enter phase.dark-gaming.com (PC) / dtp.dark-gaming.com/mphase (Mobile) then login to Phase with your in-game account and password. If you want, you can download Phase as a web application so you can use this service faster.

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

Be sure you are on the latest version of Terraria before joining. As of 2022-10-10T00:00:00Z, it is 188.8.131.52 for PC and 1.4.4 for mobile. Modified clients(like tModLoader) or older versions of Terraria are incompatible. You cannot join the server on the Console Edition of Terraria.
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.
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.
- Mobile users in survival have issues with item drops.
- Mobile users in survival are unable to craft items that have a different recipe on the PC version of Terraria.

[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.
Toggles chat between lobby-only and public.
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)
Transfers score from your player to another. Syntax: /ts Ex: /ts Rofle 200 /ts “Lord Avery” 1240. The playername syntax is case-sensitive 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. This is the equivalent of jumping into the water pool.
/j z new OR /join zombies new
Creates a new standard zombies lobby that is public.
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)
Lists all lobbies and zombies arenas that exist. Not all the zombie maps can be voted or selected.
Does as says.
Shows the lobby menu again. Possibly redundant as the menu updates quite frequently.
