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.
From Terraria Wiki
The Shark Fin is a crafting material that has a 98% chance of being dropped by Sharks found in the Ocean biome, and a 1/8 (12.5%) chance of being dropped by Sand Sharks during a Sandstorm.
Their sole purpose is to craft Hunter Potions and Water Walking Potions, as well as the Megashark.
Console and Mobile Versions[edit | edit source]
- Shark fins dropped by Sand Sharks will have special coloration ( ). Similar to Gel, the first shark fin in a stack determines the color of the rest.
- As Sharks only spawn naturally in the Oceans which can be difficult to farm without the right equipment, it might be easier to obtain Shark Fins from Sand Sharks as they spawn in the surface layer of the desert during a Sandstorm.
- A different method is to build a breathing area in the ocean and farm Sharks there.
- Shark fins can also be obtained from Shark Statues.
