Welcome to Aurora!

We are an open Terraria server with a vision to give players a unique experience.

Join now!
AuroraCraft is now fully released!

Here is a full list of features to keep you updated and excited:

In our Factions server, you are able to use the elements, fire, water, air, earth, or become a skilled Chiblocker, to help defend yourself against the harsh environment, monsters and hostile players - this is derived from the popular cartoons Avatar the Last Airbender and Avatar the Legend of Korra.

Additionally, you may create your own Faction or join an already-existing one to help improve your chances of surviving, however, if you are the solitary type, you may also wonder the world as a factionless lone ranger. Be careful, as other players are able to wreak havoc on your base and raid your chests to steal all your hard-earned resources... keep your enemies close!

In the spirit of Avatar and competitive bending, you are also able to join Probending events at the Arena as a team of three. Winning such an event is a sure fine way to establish yourself in the Factions world.

There are also additional bending-specific arenas that cater to those looking for a more destructive use of their skills: ranging from arenas that benefit Waterbenders, Firebenders etc. to arenas that give all the elements a fair game, you are sure to find the right battleground to appease your bloodlust.


Want to relax and not worry about being raided and griefed? The Creative server features Plots which players can claim for free so you can build in peace of mind, and may purchase more plots in the future using the in game currency.


We have an assortment of...
Today, we are introducing some rank changes that have been in discussion for a while. We're making these changes to help create a more welcoming and friendly environment for our players.

Right now, we have an [Operator] rank and a [Moderator] rank, both of which act as staff members on our server. There's long been a sense of confusion about which ranks are supposed to take which roles on the server, so we're looking to clarify that with the following changes.

To start with, we are merging the [Operator] rank with the [Moderator] rank, which means you will no longer see the [Operator] rank in-game.

R.I.P. [Grief Watch]/[Operator] 2013-2016

Next, we are introducing a rank called [Helper]. This rank is a non-staff rank that players can volunteer for. Players with the [Helper] rank will be active community managers- err, community supporters that will have access to a variety of commands such as /mob, /boss, /region, and others which will enable them to help others without acting in any official staff capacity. All server operations such as grief management and player moderating will be handled by [Moderators] and above.

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that haven't actually been asked and are being made up on the spot:

Why is this change being made?
The Operator and Moderator ranks were nearly identical in function, leading to confusion about the purpose of each rank and which roles they played on the server. This change will allow us to have one clearly defined "normal" staff rank (Moderator) and one clearly defined "volunteer" rank (Helper) for players.
What will happen to current Operators?
Current Operators will be demoted to Helpers once this change takes place. Operators will be given a chance to apply for Moderator before this change happens.
When will this change take place?
The Operator rank will be permanently removed in approximately two weeks. Current Operators...​
