How to prepare for the fight with the Destroyer in Terraria
One of the first things you need to do as you set up the grounds to defeat the Destroyer is break altars and get those hard-mode ores. This step will be crucial for getting the best armor for the fight—Adamantite or Titanium armor, depending on what is available. Crafting the full Adamantite armor takes 312 Adamantite Ore (or 78 Adamantite Bars). Try to equip Frozen Wings as well, if possible.
When you get the armor, it’s time to think about weapons. Going ranged is a great idea for the upcoming fight, and you should try to get the Daedalus Stormbow. Even though its power decreased in the latest game update, it is still a great weapon for defeating the Destroyer. Pair the bow with Holy Arrows, and you’ll improve your chances of success significantly—just make sure you craft a lot of them in advance.
Don’t skip stocking up on useful potions, including Endurance, Ironskin, Rage and Wrath Potions, as well as Lifeforce and Regeneration Potions, for obvious reasons.
The last part of the preparation process is to set up your arena for your fight against the Destroyer. If you’re going to use the Daedalus Stormbow, we recommend taking the fight high up and building a sky bridge. You should go as high as 150-200 blocks and leave holes in the bridge, so your arrows can reach the Destroyer. Add a Campfire and some Heart Lanterns, and you’re good to go.
