Cactus Set
Cactus Breastplate Defense decreased from 2 to 1

Forbidden Set
As a whole set, Forbidden is unchanged. However, the benefits of Forbidden Robes and Treads have been split evenly, with each now giving 40 mana and +1 Minion count

Titanium Set
New Set Bonus: Titanium Barrier
As you attack enemies, titanium shards accumulate and spin around you
These shards deal damage to enemies at close range, and inflict knockback.
Use them defensively to keep enemies away, or for the bold, aggressively to inflict extra damage.

Hallowed Set
New Set Bonus: Holy Protection
Familiar to most users as Shadow Dodge, Hallowed has had its previously stat-based set bonus replaced with a periodic immunity to damage.
Upon attacking an enemy, you will gain a buff. If an enemy hits you during this buff, you will gain a very brief immunity to damage.
After this period of immunity, at least 30 seconds must pass before you can re-activate the immunity buff.

Squire Set
Squire Great Helm and Greaves Defense each increased by 1
Squire Great Helm’s healing decreased by 50%

Solar Breastplate melee damage bonus increased from 22% to 29%
Each piece of the set now gives 1 HP/s regen
Instead of 30% damage reduction whenever you have charges, you now have 12% damage reduction at all times, and 20% additional damage reduction while charges are active. In practice, this is roughly equivalent to the same 30% it used to give due to how the two values are multiplied.
Recharge time between shield charges reduced by 1 second

Stardust Armor
Stardust Guardian now has a more much vigorous and aggressive attack, and he will attack automatically without prompting. All resemblance to a certain anime is purely coincidental.

D. Melee Weapons:
Shortswords
Shortswords can now be used in all directions, not just forward
Gold Shortsword damage increased from 11 to 12

Flails
Flails now have entirely new behavior, and a few different functionality modes.
If you click and hold the mouse button, they will swing around rapidly, doing low knock back and hitting rapidly in a small circle around you.
If you click and use them normally, you will shoot them forward similar to how they use to be used, but they will move much faster than they did before. The damage dealt is double in this mode.
Finally, if you click while it is in midair after having shot it forward, it will drop suddenly and lay on the ground. This can be used as a stationary damaging obstacle like a Spiky Ball on enemies walking towards you.
Some flails have had some stat tweaks to fit with this new setup, such as having slightly longer or shorter range, but generally speaking, all of them should perform better than before.

Poison Staff
Note: Previously, due to piercing immunity frames, only one projectile from each shot would hit each target, resulting in a lot of lost damage. We’ve implemented a system that allows ALL of the projectiles to hit a target, dramatically improving its shotgun-like functionality. However, to offset this gain, it has had to have some of its stats reduced. On the whole, this should now be a stronger weapon, however.
Damage decreased from 48 to 43
Reduced number of enemies that each projectile can hit from 4 to 3
Applies a 25% damage penalty to the next hit for each enemy a projectile pierces

When enemies are in range, it will constantly attack any nearby enemies, consuming mana for each attack.
Can hit up to 3 targets with each attack (does not consume extra mana)

Reduced number of enemies that each projectile can hit from 7 to 5
Applies a 25% damage penalty to the next hit for each enemy a projectile pierces
Now has a range before projectiles die, 50% longer than Poison Staff’s

Use Time increased from 11 to 18
Wasps can now bounce/pierce only 3 times instead of 4
Wasps per Cast: Reduced to an average of 3

Now has a 20% critical chance
Mana Cost increased from 15 to 18
Use Time decreased from 40 to 24
Projectile speed greatly increased, as a result, has better range and much harder to fall below the minimum threshold to maintain maximum damage

Heat Ray
Note: There were too many “full piercing” weapons at this tier, and not enough high single target damage weapons. Heat Ray changed to avoid redundancy with Shadowbeam Staff and Staff of Earth and give the class more versatility.

Use Time decreased from 16 to 10
Can no longer pierce and hit multiple enemies

Bat Scepter

For the next two seconds, you will fire 3 total piercing blasts, each dealing a base damage of 250 (up from 100)
After this, it will shoot the laser beam, which is unchanged from the original implementation
You can also quick-fire pellets without charging. The fire rate of these pellets is much higher than the previous implementation.
The mana cost of charging is unchanged, however, quick firing will naturally consume more mana as the fire rate has increased significantly.

Nebula Blaze
Use Time decreased from 15 to 12
Mana cost decreased from 18 to 12

G. Summons:
Summoned minions now adjust their damage dynamically based on your current equipment and damage buffs

“Some (though not all) Summons now use their own damage immunity timer system. In practice, what this means is that they will no longer interfere with the use of other weapons by maxing out the enemy’s immunity frames. All affected minions are set on their own damage timer to most correctly match their pre-change DPS, but some changes are to be expected comparing 1.3.5 DPS to 1.4 DPS. In general, even if there is some minor loss or gain of DPS compared to pre-change performance, it should be worth the improvement to overall performance. Examples of minions impacted by this change:
– Slime Staff
– Spider Staff
– Pirate Staff
– Optic Staff
– Raven Staff
– Deadly Sphere Staff
– Stardust Dragon Staff
– Some of the new summons also utilize this system”

Imp Staff
Damage decreased from 21 to 17
Fire Rate increased dramatically

Raven Staff
Damage increased from 37 to 55

I. Accessories, Hooks, and Mounts:
You no longer gain stacked benefits from wearing multiple Celestial Stone variants
In addition to its previous Confusion effect, Brain of Confusion now gives a 1/6 chance to avoid enemy attacks. Upon avoiding an attack, you will gain a temporary buff that gives 20% critical chance for a few seconds, during which time you cannot avoid additional attacks.
Titan Glove and its tinkers now give autoswing to all Melee Weapons (and Whips!)

Wing Balance has been heavily balanced across the entirety of the game.
With only a few exceptions, wings found at the same tier should be roughly equivalent in power. Exceptions are usually particularly hard or particularly easy to get.
Unfortunately, its difficult to share exact stats for wings, partially because there are dozens of them that have been changed, and their stats don’t easily translate to easily readable stats.
The best short summary is that over a dozen sets of wings were buffed, and that Leaf and Frozen Wings have been reduced in power, as they were too strong for their tier.
Other major notes:
– Butterfly and Bee Wings can now only drop after the Mech Bosses, but their power has been increased proportionally.
– Previously, most wings from Wall of Flesh until Golem were very similar in power, and didn’t offer a lot of reason to upgrade. These have now been spread out, creating a more gradual, consistent increase in wing power across the course of the game.

Shrimpy Truffle now gives its increased speed and damage bonus when in the rain.
Basilisk Mount now has a double jump

Desert Fossil can now be mined at any pickaxe power or with bombs. However, it is fragile and adjacent fossil blocks may break when you mine it, costing you some of the ore.
Desert Fossil based gear is now weaker because it is available sooner.
Hellforges now require Demonite Pickaxe or higher to break. They also now protect the tiles below them from being broken while in the Underworld. This does not apply outside of the Underworld.

All of the Food in the game, including the 50+ new Food items, have had their durations and tiers adjusted to have a more consistent reward for the difficulty of obtaining them. Short duration foods might have a higher tier, while long duration foods might have a lower tier. Find what is most efficient for you!
Well Fed Buff now gives a mining speed bonus
Invisibility Potion now has an added benefit of reducing enemy spawn rates by 20%
Restoration Potions no longer heal mana, but heal 10 more life for a total of 90, and induce even less Potion Sickness, now only 45 seconds

Cursed Inferno Debuff
Damage per second increased from 12 to 24 on both player and enemy versions of the debuff
Ghoul, Clinger, and Spazmatism Cursed Inferno duration decreased somewhat to mitigate the increased danger to the player

Moon Lord now drops Super Healing Potions instead of Greater Healing Potions
Mushroom Grass Seed drop rate increased from 1/50 to 1/40
Nature’s Gifts now spawn slightly more often in the Jungle

Throwing Knives in chests now come in much larger stacks

Fixed an issue where firing Tome of Infinite Wisdom on a sloping minecart track would cause the pages to fire in all directions
Fixed an issue where using Tome of Infinite Wisdom’s right click functionality while on a Drill Mount would drain all of your mana almost instantly
Fixed an exploit where dying to Chaos State while holding a Rod of Discord in the cursor on a Hardcore character would cause the next character used to inherit said Rod of Discord
Fixed an issue where the last segment of Solar Eruption’s blade didn’t actually do damage
Added protections to prevent a very rare bug where the Solar Eruption debuff would kill its own user
Fixed an oversight in Halloween drop rates based on HP that caused Bladed Gloves and Bloody Machete to be too rare in Expert
Fixed an issue where extremely high melee speed thresholds would break the behavior of weapons like Sky Dragon’s Fury
You can no longer use Sniper Scopes and Binoculars while dead

Fixed an issue where, after using a cooldown timed projectile sword, switching to another hotbar slot via number key would delete 1 consumable from that slot
Fixed a number of damage type inconsistencies including projectiles doing the wrong damage type, weapons receiving/not receiving damage type set or potion bonuses in error, critical rates being applied incorrectly, and a lot more
Fixed a number of edge cases where things like mount damage or Shield of Cthulhu dashing would not register on the DPS meter

Fixed an issue where several wings (Fin, Bat, Mothron) had a faulty acceleration speed
