Flight

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Flight allows players to move freely in the air for a certain duration and can be granted using either the Rocket Boots, Wings or certain Mounts. While wings and faster mounts can only be acquired during Hardmode, Rocket Boots and Honeyed Goggles can be used to achieve limited flight early on.

The Soaring Insignia accessory can be paired along wings and rocket boots to grant infinite flight time.

Rocket Boots and all variants are pre-Hardmode accessories which offer early access to limited flight. All variants offer 1.17 seconds (7/6 seconds) of flight time with a 1.5 times multiplier to jump speed. Rocket flight will only activate after all extra jumps (e.g. from Cloud in a Bottle) are used and if no wings are equipped. When paired with wings, rocket flight is disabled to give wings an additional 1 second of flight time.

Wings[edit | edit source]

Main article: Wings

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • While wings and mounts automatically cancel fall damage, rocket flight does not.
  • When flight time runs out, it is possible to hold down the Jump key to fall at 1/3 the normal falling speed.
  • All Flying mounts have 50% increased vertical speed during flight, except for the Winged Slime Mount with 25% decreased speed instead.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Although not true flight, an alternative to long range flight can be achieved using the gravity switching affects of Gravitation Potions or the Gravity Globe accessory. When using these, gravity can be flipped using the ▲ Up key, causing the player to suddenly lift off the ground and fall in the opposite direction. This can be useful to quickly find Floating Islands.
  • An Ice Rod can be used to lay blocks of ice to land in midair, making it possible to remain in the air indefinitely.
