Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop, Console, and Mobile versions This accessory works well with the Shrimpy Truffle, which gives the player a damage and speed boost when at or below 50% life.
  • The Frozen Turtle Shell is useful for fighting bosses and events, which usually expose the player to constant damage, thus activating the accessory more often than during regular gameplay.
  • Turning on autopause and swapping to this accessory when below 50% life may be advisable.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The buff can be canceled, although it will immediately activate again.
