Among them, there is a particular mace that has come out as the strongest weapon in the entire game. The weapon, called the Porcupine mace, can be crafted by farming 5 fine wood, 20 iron, 5 needles, and 10 linen threads.

First up, you would need to farm 20 fine wood that can be found in the starting area. Just chop down white trees that were deemed too strong in the early stages of the game.

The second item, iron ingots, requires a smelter and coal and an adventure into the swamp biome. This terrain contains dungeons that will give out muddy scrap piles. This scrap pile can be converted into iron ingots later on, which will put you a step closer towards forging the Porcupine.

You can only find needles within the plains biome as they’re dropped by Deathsquitos or found in chests. Deathsquitos are not an easy mob to tackle, as they can deal massive damage.
