Attack speed

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Attack Speed in Terraria is handled like movement speed; Additive bonuses, except the cap, are at four times the original speed. However use time, or the time it takes to swing (attack) or use an item, is reduced instead of increased (see that page for a more detailed formula). In addition, for melee weapon with a projectile, the Attack Speed also increase the Velocity of that projectile by that many percent. Use time of 30 is slower than use time of 10. See weapon list for an organized view of this.

Max increased attack speed (for melee) is +158.1% using Monk's Bushy Brow Bald Cap (20%), Shinobi Infiltrator's Torso (20%), Solar Flare Leggings (15%), Exquisitely Stuffed (buff) (10%), Tipsy (buff) (10%), and the five accessories Feral Claws (12%), Power Glove (12%), Mechanical Glove (12%), Celestial Shell (15.1% at night) and Berserker's Glove (12%), each reforged to Violent (20%). In Expert Mode Violent Fire Gauntlet can be worn for an extra 14%, with +172.1% total; In Master Mode an additional Violent accessory (note, as of 1.4, the stones' effect no long stacks) can be worn for an extra 4%, with +176.1% total. When combined with the fastest melee weapon, the Fetid Baghnakhs, a player may execute a full melee attack in roughly 0.033 seconds, or thirty times per second (note:as of 1.4, it can only receive up to +25% speed bonus).

Armor Sets[edit | edit source]

Mining speed of various tools is however not affected by the bonuses above, it is only boosted by specialized Mining bonuses (such as the Mining Potion and Mining outfit) and speed bonuses granted by the tool's own prefix, the best of which is Light. The exception is the Celestial Stone (and related accessories), whose bonus to mining speed is stated in the tooltip.

Note: Even though you have an incredible attack speed you must take the monster's invincibility time into consideration. Generally speaking, no invincibility time is applied when referring to projectiles that do not pierce, but those that do pierce or explode are not in this case. Normally it is 1/6 seconds (10 ticks) while there are some exceptions ranging from 5 ticks to 20 ticks.
