The Shackle is an accessory that grants 1 point of defense. It is dropped by Zombies somewhat rarely (2% for most Zombies), although it's easy to acquire in plentiful amounts if you venture into the wilderness during a Blood Moon. Shackles are most useful for a new player that doesn't have armor yet and lacks defense.

Later in the game, the player can obtain an Obsidian Skull or Cobalt Shield as a replacement, which grant immunity against burning blocks or knockback respectively, as well as granting the defense bonus.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In real life, a shackle is either a metal link used for linking devices together or a device used to chain people into prisons.
  • Due to its low reforging cost, this item is useful for getting rarer reforge modifiers such as Arcane, Violent, Lucky, and Warding.
  • When a shackle gets the Warding modifier, it can grant 5 defense, which could be a substitute to Copper Armor.
