We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: End of Week.
From Terraria Wiki
A Bucket is used to carry liquids (water, lava, or honey). Each Bucket holds one tile of liquid. An empty Bucket can also be placed in the armor's helmet slot, where it provides +1 defense.
Clicking on any sufficient body of liquid with an empty Bucket collects the liquid, which replaces the empty Bucket with either the Water Bucket, Lava Bucket, or Honey Bucket. Clicking again will deposit the liquid at the point clicked, wherein the filled Bucket is again replaced with an empty Bucket.
The Bottomless Water Bucket acts as an infinite water placing bucket, whereas the Super Absorbant Sponge is essentially an infinite empty bucket that accepts only water. There are no lava or honey variants for these.
- Putting a bucket in the vanity slot, and another bucket in the armor slot will stack the buckets on top of each other.
