The Diving Helmet is an armor piece for the helmet slot. It has a 2% (1/50) chance of being dropped by Sharks and OrcasOld-gen console versionMobile Version3DS version. When equipped, it causes the Breath meter to deplete much slower, allowing the player to last approximately a minute and a half before it runs out. It will also slow the damage caused by drowning.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The effect stacks with the Breathing Reed, allowing one to stay underwater for three minutes as well as further reducing suffocation damage.
  • Since sharks and orcas have moderate health and damage, the diving helmet may be difficult to obtain if the player is not prepared or has weak armor and/or weapons.
  • An efficient way to farm this item is to wait for a Blood Moon and have a stack of Battle Potions and a stack of Gills Potions or Neptune's Shell, a Celestial Shell or a Moon Shell.
  • Sharks spawned from the Shark statue also drop the Diving Helmet.
