The Inferno Potion is a buff potion that grants the Inferno buff when consumed. It casts a ring of fire around the player that inflicts low damage and the On Fire! debuff on enemies on contact, as well as giving off light. Critters and other passive NPCs are unaffected. This lasts for 4 minutes, but can be canceled 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). It can be crafted or found in Shadow Chests.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Crafting this potion requires a Hotline Fishing Hook, as its two fish ingredients can only be caught in lava.
  • Enemies that are immune to On Fire! are also immune to damage from the inferno.
  • While the ring deals minimal damage to most Hardmode enemies, this potion is extremely useful when fighting Duke Fishron because his Detonating Bubbles will be destroyed before they can damage the player. It is also useful in the Wall of Flesh for keeping the hungry at bay, or for fighting Plantera, to kill spores and keep the hooks away from you.
  • On the 3DS version DS version, the inferno keeps damaging enemies when going to the armor section in the player's inventory. However, the timer for it will still go down.
