Which way is east?

I have a goblin invasion coming from the east, and I need to know wich way is east. My real world map says that right is east, but, the sun rises left. Hurry, I need to build my wall!

I ran into a group of men trying to take an old lady's purse and decided it was my duty to help out. She was a tough old broad, but in the end we got her purse.

Goblins dont' seek out NPCs though, just you.

The only reason they would get hurt is because they're in the way.

Nintendo guy is wrong... remember: The sun rises from the east.

That being said, East in Terraria is actually towards the left

East=Left

There.

This assumes that the world in Terraria is Earth, or at least a planet that rotates the same way as Earth. If the game takes place on another planet that spins the opposite way (like Venus), the sun would rise in the West and set in the East.

Shortly - left.

Long version. Usually people think that east is to the right, because they assume that North is up. However in Terraria you cannot see North, because it is down (side from which you are looking from), where sun, of course, never shows up. South is up, so East in that case is to the left. Just rotate compass 180 degrees and you'll see how it is in Terraria.

Also. Did you know that, where sun it at the top, it is South? ^_^

In Terraria, the Sun rises from the west.
