The Spelunker Potion is a buff potion that buffs the player with Spelunker; it causes all nearby ore, gems, chests, Crystal Hearts, pots, alchemical herbs, Dye plants and Life Fruit to become visible on the map regardless of brightness with a colored tint. The color varies between game versions (PC/Console version).

The buff lasts for five minutes and, like all buffs, can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon.

PC ore colors[edit | edit source]

Pc only.png PC-Only Content: This information (or parts of it) applies only to the PC version of Terraria.

In the PC version, ore (and other treasures) will be displayed with a yellow tint. This will somewhat alter the natural color of the highlighted treasure, such as making Cobalt turquoise and Orichalcum red. Some ores are not affected, these being Crimtane (unlike its counterpart Demonite), Meteorite, Obsidian, and Hellstone. Meteorite does however provide its own light.

Console ore colors[edit | edit source]

Console only.png Console-Only Content: This information (or parts of it) applies only to the console version of Terraria.

In the console version, every type of ore will be displayed in a specific color and will glow and flash:

  • Copper Ore has a reddish tone.
  • Iron Ore is red and blue, flashing.
  • Silver Ore has a blue shade.
  • Gold Ore looks like copper, but with a slight yellow tint.
  • Demonite Ore is very hard to distinguish from silver. Since it always gives off a glow, Spelunker is not needed to search for it.
  • Cobalt Ore is an intense blue, making it very distinct.
  • Mythril Ore looks like silver, only the texture is slightly different and has a hint of green.
  • Adamantite Ore is like copper but darker and more red.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Spelunker Potions are best used while playing in high display resolutions.
  • The effect of splunker potions is similar to that of the Spelunker Glowstick, but with the advantage of being able to mine and perform other actions at the same time.
  • Pc only.png The sparkling effect seems to be greatest with Lighting setting: Retro.
  • Console only.png The map displays ores very distinctly, making Spelunker Potions almost obsolete.

History[edit | edit source]

  • 1.3.0.4: Fixed dye plants not glowing to spelunking effects.
  • 1.3.0.1: Texture changed.
  • 1.2.3:
    • Spelunker no longer gives off light. This prevents ore from showing up on the map.
    • Spelunker now causes ore to be gold colored on the screen.
  • 1.2: Displays new treasure and has a Platinum Ore version of the recipe.
  • 1.0.5: Introduced.
