The Gravitation Potion is a buff potion which grants the Gravitation buff when consumed. This buff allows the player to invert gravity with ▲ Up making the screen appear upside-down, fall upwards, and walk on ceilings. The effect can be toggled while in midair.

This lasts for 3 minutes, but can be cancelled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Console versionOld-gen console version), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (3DS version).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • While flipping gravity resets your fall distance, this potion does not negate fall damage on its own. Using a Featherfall potion, wings, a Lucky Horseshoe or an Obsidian Horseshoe will make using Gravitation potions a lot safer.
  • Falling upwards to the map's height limit will not damage you, but it is possible to die by smacking into the underside of a Floating Island, or any other ceiling.
  • Falling to the map's height limit will automatically flip you right-side up.
  • The sound effect of the player flipping gravity has the same sound effect of the Shadow Orb (item), Vilethorn, as well as when a Fire Imp teleports.
  • In the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, you have the option to turn off "World Flips Upside Down", making it so only the player flips.
  • While flipping gravity on Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and using the hoverboard horizontal speed boost while having Hermes Boots or any equal or upgraded version equipped will cause the boots speed boost to allow the user to run forever. If using the hoverboard fixed hover mode then the user will stay in place forever.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It is helpful for finding Floating Islands by hovering up and down at the right altitude.
  • Gravitation effectively surpasses the Rocket Boots and Wings combination as the air travel method with the most range, though it is more difficult to control as a flight method.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Walking effects, such as the snowy effect when wearing a full set of Frost armor, will not be flipped.
