Terraria Tip: Automated Gold Farming by Selling Chests (Archived–No Longer Works)

by Nicolai on April 12, 2013

**This bug has been patched on all platforms as of May 2014. This post is now for non-patched games and archival purposes only.**

I watched a Youtube video about farming gold chests with active blocks. I also watched a video about farming dead goldfish with a crab-statue trigger. This is what happens when you combine the two tricks.

To Farm Gold Chests:

  • Lay out four active blocks
  • Run wire to a switch
  • Turn off active blocks
  • Place gold chest on the active blocks
  • Put any item inside the chest
  • Flip the switch

To Automate Using a Crab Statue:

  • Place crab statue
  • Box it in, leaving only one block of open space beside it
  • Put pressure plate in open space
  • Run wire from active block switch through the pressure plate and to the statue
  • Flip the switch

I’m sure there are ways to increase the output by constricting the crabs more or using 1-second timers. Tweak it up and see if you can get a non-stop fountain of gold chests (and gold coins)!

Be careful when you’re selling the chests though. I really did accidentally sell my Hamdrax, and when I went to buy it back all I saw were tons of insanely overpriced chests.

Happy Farming!
