The Arctic Diving Gear's glow when the wearer is submerged

The Arctic Diving Gear is an accessory which is crafted by combining the Jellyfish Diving Gear and Ice Skates at a Tinkerer's Workshop. It combines the swimming and breathing effects of the Diving Gear with the underwater lighting effect of the Jellyfish Necklace (in the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and Nintendo Switch version Nintendo Switch version, it gives a very faint glow out of water and honey and its brightness is significantly increased when submerged), as well as the enhanced mobility on ice effect of the Ice Skates. In addition to combining these effects into a single accessory, it has the unique ability of preventing the Chilled debuff when touching water in Snow or Ice biomes in Expert Mode.

  • Like all diving equipment, the Arctic Diving Gear prolongs the underwater breath to 1 minute and 33.33 seconds or, while holding the Breathing Reed, to 3 minutes and 6.67 seconds. In addition, the rate at which health is lost while drowning is reduced to 1/4 or 1/8, respectively. While it is possible to equip multiple pieces of diving equipment, doing so does not cause them to stack.
  • It has a light blue glow, as opposed to the pink glow from the Jellyfish Diving Gear.
  • Any headpiece, whether social or armor, will override display of the Arctic Diving Gear.


  • The Arctic Diving Gear is very useful for exploring flooded areas, and it can be obtained in pre-Hardmode, even before any boss is defeated.
