Basic Command List for TShock Terraria

Depending on what plugins you're using, this list may change. This is the vanilla TShock Terraria command list. Always check /help ingame and it will list commands available to you.

To use commands, you may use an RCON service, or ingame on an admin account. For example, type /help to display a list of commands. To learn how to set up an admin account, read our article here: How to setup an administrator account on TShock Terraria.
