TooltipCannot use any items

Cursed is a debuff which prevents the player from using any items, including weapons, hooks, and consumables. This can be fatal if the player is surrounded by enemies. A Nazar, Countercurse Mantra, Ankh Charm or Ankh Shield makes the player immune to this debuff.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Even while cursed, you are still able to damage enemies via dashing with some items such as the Shield of Cthulhu or the dashing ability from Solar Flare Armor.
  • While cursed, minions created by summon weapons continue to fight as normal, though new ones can't be summoned.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The debuff sprite contains a bag-like item which is without a doubt a recolor of the old Thrown Powder sprites Purification Powder (old).pngVile Powder (old).png. However, despite these sprites being updated in Desktop 1.2, the debuff's sprite never was, and remains as such even in the definitive final version of Terrria.
