Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (4)

Some folks might think that a pet fairy is the end-all, be-all of the game, but accessories are the make or break of a successful Terraria build. There are also literally hundreds to choose from -- especially now that Terraria has reached its final form: 1.4, Journey's End.

Terraria: 7 Best Quotes From NPCs

Terraria NPCs can be quite funny from time to time. Here, you can check out the best quotes in the game from these NPCs.

Which accessories you take really depends on which build you've gone for: a magic build, a Yoyo build, a ranged build, etc. However, there are also a few accessories that should make their way into any build. With the console release of the update, here's our guide to the best accessories in Terraria.

Updated January 24, 2024, by Roland Martinez: The method of obtaining many of the available accessories has changed with the addition of Shimmer. With some new additions to the pool, that means it's time for an update that includes new information.

15 Cloud In A Bottle

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (6)

Effects

Grants the ability to double jump, increasing jump height from five blocks to 11

How To Obtain

Search chests in the Underground/Cavern levels

You can't overlook the Cloud in a Bottle. Although it's one of the first accessories you find in Terraria, it's still one of the best. From placing down blocks and scrambling up and down ropes, Cloud in a Bottle is the first accessory that really changes how Terraria is played. This makes it an essential item for any new player.

Cloud in a Bottle gives you the ability to double-jump, which is great for spelunking and getting out of tricky situations. You can find the Cloud in a Bottle in Underground and Cavern chests.

Later, you can combine the Cloud in a Bottle with either a Shiny Red Balloon or a Whoopie Cushion at the Tinkerer's Workshop. It's recommended that you craft the Fart in a Jar (Cloud in a Bottle and Whoopie Cushion) for extra jump height.

14 Magic Mirror

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (7)

Effects

Returns the user to spawn point from any point in the world

How To Obtain

Searching Underground/Cavern chests

Crafting at a furnace with 10 glass, 8 Gold/Platinum bars, and 3 diamonds

The almighty Magic Mirror is hands-down one of the most useful items in the game, whether you're just starting afresh or about to take down the Moon Lord. You can use Recall Potions until you find the Magic Mirror for an identical effect. Later in the game, the Magic Mirror is used to craft the Cell Phone when combined with a PDA at a Tinkerer's Workshop.

Terraria: Best Placement For All NPCs

Here, you can check out a comprehensive guide on the best biomes for each NPC in Terraria.

This accessory teleports you to your spawn, either where you started in the world or next to your bed. Acquired in Underground and Cavern chests, the Magic Mirror is basically the one accessory every player is looking out for at the start of Terraria. Journeying up and down from the caves can be a nightmare without it.

13 PDA

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (9)

Effects

Displays: fishing info, weather, moon phase, current elevation, distance east/west, time, nearby treasure, speed, DPS, enemies killed, amount of nearby creatures, and rare creatures

How To Obtain

Combine the GPS, Fish Finder, Goblin Tech, and R.E.K 3000 at a Tinkerer's Workshop

The PDA is an endgame item that combines the functionality of several informational accessories. It will display the names of nearby rare enemies, display how fast your character is going, what the weather's like, and highlight nearby valuable objects and lots more. The crafting tree for the PDA is very complicated, requiring various other accessories, like the Depth Meter, Compass, Tally Counter, Stopwatch, and more.

To get the PDA, you need to combine the GPS, Fish Finder, Goblin Tech, and R.E.K 3000 at the Tinkerer's Workshop. You don't have to be in Hardmode to access this item, but gathering what you need to complete it will still take dozens of in-game hours. Don't forget to account for all of the boss battles, too.

12 Mana Cloak

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (10)

Effects

Reduce Mana cost by eight percent, automatically uses potions upon reaching zero Mana, and causes Mana stars to fall after taking damage

How To Obtain

Combine a Mana Flower and Star Cloak at a Tinkerer's Workshop

The Mana Cloak is an essential accessory for any endgame mage build, although it is available to craft pre-Hardmode. It combines the functionality of several other mage accessories all in one item, decreasing mana costs by eight percent, allowing the automatic consumption of potions, and causing Mana stars to appear when you're is damaged. This means you can collect Mana stars while you're fighting.

Terraria: Best Pre-Hardmode Weapons

While still in Pre-Hardmode, it's important for you to collect the best weapons you can in Terraria for the journey ahead of you.

The Mana Flower is crafted with a Nature's Gift and a Mana Potion at a Tinkerer's Workshop. You should always aim for this if you're going full magic mode.

11 The Ankh Shield

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (12)

Effects

Grants immunity to knockback, fire blocks, bleeding, cursed, slow, broken armor, darkness, weak, burning, poisoned, chilled, confused, silenced, and stoned

How To Obtain

Combine an Ankh Charm and an Obsidian Shield at a Tinkerer's Workshop

The Ankh Shield is one of the best endgame accessories for a melee build. Not only does it increase overall defense by four, but it also prevents almost every debuff in the game, including Slow, Confused, and Silence.

This Hardmode item is only available after collecting and crafting all the other component parts and combining them at a Tinkerer's Workshop. The last two full items needed are the Obsidian Shield and the Ankh Charm. There's a pretty complex crafting tree for the Ankh Shield, requiring various other items and accessories, such as the Obsidian Skull, Medicated Bandage, Armor Bracing, and much more.

10 Celestial Shell

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (13)

Effects

Transform into a Werewolf at night and transform into a Merfolk in water

How To Obtain

Combine a Celestial Stone and a Moon Stone at a Tinkerer's Workshop

Werewolf? Mermaid? Why not both? The Celestial Shell offers a huge range of stat boosts depending on the time of day or whether you're fighting underwater. This endgame Hardmode item is one of the best accessories in the game and fits into pretty much any Terraria build.

To access the Celestial Shell, you'll need to combine the Moon Shield and Celestial Stone at a Tinkerer's Workshop. This is a pretty long process of crafting, collecting, and combining items, so you won't get your hands on the Celestial Shell until much later in the game. Some of the key items you'll need to craft it include the Moon Charm, Neptune's Shell, the Moon Stone, and the Sun Stone.

9 Lavaproof Tackle Bag

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (14)

Effects

Fishing lines no longer break, bait has a lower chance of being consumed, and fishing power is increased

How To Obtain

Combine an Angler Tackle Bag with a Lavaproof Fishing Hook at a Tinkerer's Workshop

To fish or not to fish: that is the question. In Terraria, the answer is almost always yes. The loot available from fishing makes the effort worthwhile, and if you want the ultimate fishing build, you need the Lavaproof Tackle Bag.

Reel in success.

This accessory puts every single fishing accessory - the Angler Earring, the Tackle Box, the Lavaproof Fishing Hook - and puts them into one item slot. It will prevent your fishing line from breaking,allowing you to fish in lava and increasing overall fishing power by ten percent. You will need to be able to fish in lava to complete the Angler quests for extra rewards.

8 Yoyo Bag

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (16)

Effects

Utilize two Yoyos at once

How To Obtain

Combine the Yoyo glove, String, and any counterweight at a Tinkerer's Workshop

The Yoyo build is one of the most fun ways to play Terraria, and the Yoyo Bag is the crowning item to an all-powerful Yoyo build. This accessory combines the functionality of every other Yoyo item, so you have more room left to diversify your build.

A melee build will take someone far in Terraria 1.4. Here are some tips for maximizing this build's potential.

The Yoyo bag increases the range of all Yoyos, spawns a duplicate Yoyo when you attack, and creates two mini-Yoyos that also deal damage. Combined with a decent set of melee accessories, and you have all the kit you need to tackle Hardmode Terraria. You'll need String (of any color), a Yoyo Glove, and a Counterweight (of any color), and combine them all at a Tinkerer's Workshop.

7 Papyrus Scarab

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (18)

Effects

Increase the max amount of summoned minions by one while also increasing the creature's knockback and damage

How To Obtain

Combine a Necromantic Scroll and a Hercules Beetle at a Tinkerer's Workshop

The Summoner build in Terraria got a lot of love in 1.4, Journey's End. It's more viable than ever to pursue a full Summoner build, and the Papyrus Scarab is one of those essential late-game items needed to complete the build.

This is a Hardmode accessory that combines the Hercules Beetle and Necromantic Scroll together. When completed at a Tinkerer's Workshop, the Papyrus Scarab increases knockback damage via minions, increases overall summon damage by 15 percent, and allows you to spawn one extra minion. The Necromantic Scroll is dropped by Mourning Wood during the Pumpkin Moon Event, and the Hercules Beetle is sold by the Witch Doctor for 40 gold while he's living in the Jungle.

6 Sniper Scope

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (19)

Effects

Increase the range of firearms as well as their damage and critical strike chance by ten percent

How To Obtain

Combine a Destroyer Emblem with a Rifle Scope at a Tinkerer's Workshop

Being that Terraria includes a lot of guns, it's only fair you can get your hands on a Sniper Scope. This Hardmode Ranged accessory is perfect for those who've opted to use guns and bows instead of swords and silly little wands. You'll want this accessory if you want to complete the best Ranged build in Terraria 1.4.

The Sniper Scope is crafted from two other accessories - the Rifle Scope and Destroyer Emblem - at the Tinkerer's Workshop. It increases ranged critical chance by ten percent, increases overall ranged damage by ten percent, and increases view range with a gun in hand.

5 Magiluminescence

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (20)

Effects

Increase movement speed by 20 percent, provide light around your character, and increases acceleration and deceleration speed

How To Obtain

Combine 12 Demonite/Crimtane bars with one Topaz at an anvil

It's no secret that Terraria can be quite dark. When you are caving in the depths or exploring at night, you may need a bit of light; that's where Magiluminescene comes in. With this accessory, you can light the area around you.

A movement speed increase isn't anything new, but Magiluminescene stacks with items like the Hermes Boots, which also increase movement speed. These two items together can have you flying around the map in no time.

4 Terraspark Boots

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (21)

Effects

Allows flight, increases movement speed on ice and land, gives the ability to walk on water, lava, and honey, provides immunity to fire blocks and lava for seven seconds, and reduces lava damage

How To Obtain

Combine Frostspark Boots with Lava Waders at a Tinkerer's Workshop

Next up, we have the Terraspark Boots. These boots are pretty helpful, considering all the effects listed above. With Terraspark Boots, you can expertly dash around the map, running and jumping through tunnels. If you do happen to land in lava, you won't take as much damage, either.

This pre-Hardmode accessory is made by combining the Frostspark Boots and Lava Waders at the Tinkerer's Workshop.

3 Master Ninja Gear

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (22)

Effects

Allows you to climb walls, dash, and has a 10 percent chance to automatically dodge incoming attacks

How To Obtain

Combine a Tabi, Black Belt, and Tiger Climbing Gear at a Tinkerer's Workshop

The Master Ninja Gear is only available after Plantera is defeated and is the result of combining Tiger Climbing Gear, the Tabi, and a Black Belt at a Tinkerer's Workshop. This accessory is one that every melee build should look to incorporate at one point or another.

The Master Ninja Gear makes a great replacement for Cthulu's Shield since it offers a quick dash upon double-tapping one of the horizontal movement keys.

2 Panic Necklace

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (23)

Effects

Grants the Panic! buff when struck by any damage for 8 seconds. The buff increases movement speed by 50 percent

How To Obtain

Combine a Band of Starpower and a Life Crystal at a Tinkerer's Workshop within a Graveyard biome OR find it as a drop from breaking Crimson Hearts

This necklace is great for the early game when you're most vulnerable. It's a must-have for early melee builds due to its lifesaving effect. The primary method of obtaining the Panic Necklace is through breaking Crimson Hearts in the Crimson biome.

It can also be obtained through fishing, opening Crimson Crates, or crafting at a Tinkerer's Workshop in a Graveyard biome.

1 Destroyer Emblem

Terraria: 15 Best Accessories In The Game (24)

Effects

Increases your damage by ten percent and critical strike chance by ten percent

How To Obtain

Combine the Eye of Golem with an Avenger Emblem

The emblems obtained from the Wall Of Flesh fight go through quite a few changes over the course of your Terraria progression. The Destroyer Emblem is an amazing accessory that increases damage output by quite a large amount and also serves as a component for one of the best Ranged class accessories in the game, the Sniper Scope.

This post-Golem accessory is great for endgame builds of all kinds and has a relatively simple crafting recipe.
