Werewolf and Merfolk forms.

The Moon Shell is a Hardmode accessory that can be crafted at the Tinkerer's Workshop. It has the combined effects of the Moon Charm and the Neptune's Shell. Equipping it will turn the player into a Merfolk when entering water (at any time), or into a Werewolf at night. The Merfolk form replaces the Werewolf form if entering water at night.

The buffs from the Moon Charm:

  • +2% Melee critical hit chance
  • +5.1% Melee damage
  • +5.1% Melee speed
  • +5% Movement speed
  • +3 Defense
  • Slightly increased jump height and jump speed
  • +0.5 HP regeneration per second (Like the Band of Regeneration)

The buff from the Neptune's Shell:

  • Turn into Merfolk (no air bubble limit and movement in water is the same as on land)

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Merfolk Buff overrides the Werewolf buff, and the two are not applied at the same time.
  • If you make it invisible in the accessory slot, the character will not appear to change although the buff is still applied.
  • If equipped into a social slot, the werewolf form overrides the human form regardless of the time of day. However, this is only a visual appearance, and the player will receive no actual buffs or bonuses.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Moon Shell resembles a purple Neptune's Shell carved into a crescent moon.
