We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Merfolk form.
Neptune's Shell is a Hardmode accessory that aids underwater performance (and other liquids) by granting indefinite breathing time underwater, swimming via the key, and eliminating the slow movement speed usually caused by water. Entering water with this accessory equipped transforms the player into Merfolk form. While in this form, the breath meter will not display (nor will it decrease), therefore effectively preventing drowning.

Neptune's Shell can be considered an upgrade from the Diving Gear in most respects, but lacks the underwater lighting of the Jellyfish Diving Gear and the extra mobility on ice of the Arctic Diving Gear.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Wearing the Fish Bowl will not activate the Merfolk buff.
  • Swimming speed nears that of flying through air with Wings.
  • Swimming in Honey activates all the perks of Merfolk but does not allow you to move at full speed.
  • Swimming in Lava does not activate the Merfolk form.
  • Landing in and "jumping" from water alone (by swimming up past the surface), without touching land, does not reset flight time for Wings or variants of Rocket Boots.
  • The Merfolk buff overrides the Werewolf buff, replacing the graphics and canceling the bonuses granted by the Moon Charm during the night.
  • The Merfolk form is affected by Dyes.
  • Neptune's Shell can also be equipped as a vanity accessory, which causes the Merfolk form to appear regardless of whether the player is in water. This is merely the appearance of the Merfolk, the buff will not take affect while it is equipped as a vanity (caution should be taken when in water, as the player will need to watch their breath meter).
  • Console only.pngMobile only.png Half of the ingredients can be obtained pre-hardmode, so it would pay to collect them as early as possible.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The name of the item refers to Neptune, Roman god of the sea.
