I have to admit, I'm SUPER hyped for Terraria 1.3, and I bet you are too! But this recent trailer for the update raises some questions: Who is that NPC hitting the bat with his cane? What is that new crate? Why are the Pillar's graphics so much better than everything else in the game? Well, I'm here to give some possible answers to those questions.
I think the mystery NPC hitting the bat with the cane is the Tax Collector. He looks kind of like Scrooge from A Christmas Carol. So... yeah.
I think the new crate is a Demonite crate. It has a purple color scheme and was fished from a flooded Corruption chasm. If this is true, Crimtane crates as well maybe?
I think the Pillar boss is the thing that connects Terraria and Terraria: Otherworld. It seems to have Otherworldly graphics. Heh. Otherworldly, get it? They are Otherworldly since, y'know, they're from a Terraria: Otherw- I should stop talking.
I don't think the Treasure Bag is dropped by just Duke Fishron. I think other Hardmode bosses drop it too. Why just Hardmode bosses? Well, if you see in the video, it has a Lime rarity. Lime items are acquired around Plantera and the Golem.
Also that guy who seems to turn into the Pillar looks like Crowno.
I write books and play Minecraft, Terraria, FEZ, and whole bunch more games. I am also interested in animation and video & audio editing.
