Buffs

From Terraria Wiki

Cleanup It has been suggested that this page/section be rewritten.
Reason: "Needs content for 1.2.4"
Buffs are special stats or visual bonuses which are granted to the player after consuming certain items. They last anywhere from 2 minutes to 15 minutes. Currently active buffs are shown below the hotbar, along with their remaining duration. You can right click the buff icon whenever to cancel it. Non-cancellable buffs are usually negative in effect and called debuffs.

If you die with any active buffs, they will be canceled out and need to be re-applied on respawn.

You can have up to 22 buffs active at once. After that, when you try to activate another buff, it cancels out the left-most buff in the bar. Activated buffs carry over from server-to-server, and from world-to-world.

Buffs can be easily activated with the buff hotkey, defaulted to B. When pressed, the first 10 buff-granting consumables (starting from the top-left) are used, giving the player their respective buffs. Using the hotkey while a particular buff is still active will not re-activate it or re-stack it.

Aside from the normal buffs there are also buffs that provide you with a pet. Unlike other buffs they last until the player dies or cancels the buff.

Notes[edit]

  • The effects of the same buff do not stack.
  • The Campfire buff and Heart Lamp buff are the only buffs you can't remove by right clicking. They are instead cancelled by moving away from the buff's source.
