The Aqua Scepter's water particles piercing three Target Dummies.

The Aqua Scepter is a magic weapon that can be obtained from the locked Gold Chests within the Dungeon, or from the Golden Lock Box found in Dungeon Crates from fishing. It auto-fires an arc of water particles which can pierce enemies.

The Aqua Scepter can be continuously used to keep enemies juggled. However, the sprite of the Aqua Scepter itself deals no damage. Therefore an enemy too close to the wielder will not get hit by the water, and simply move past the outstretched wand to hit the player.

Its particles emit light, so the Aqua Scepter can be useful in scouting out caverns.

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being a water themed weapon, the range seems to be reduced when the player is in water.
    • The Aqua Scepter is also unable to extinguish enemies.
  • It is incredibly effective against the Brain of Cthulhu's Creepers, and it can kill all of them in a matter of seconds.
  • It is also very effective against the Queen Bee and Wall of Flesh.
  • The Aqua Scepter's attack consists of two separate streams of water superimposed on top of each other, similar to the Golden Shower which has 3.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During alpha and beta testing for the first version of Terraria, the Aqua Scepter was often considered overpowered, due to the fact that it used so little mana then. The mana cost has since been raised by the developers.
  • The Golden Shower can be considered a Hardmode upgrade of the Aqua Scepter.
  • It makes the same sound effect as the Rocket Boots.
  • Due to the blue color of the staff portion of the scepter, it can be assumed it is made from enchanted cobalt, like most other dungeon items, i.e. Muramasa, Magic Missile, and of course, the Cobalt Shield.
