    The Ankh Shield is a Hardmode accessory which grants immunity to knockback and all of the following debuffs:

    It is crafted at a Tinkerer's Workshop by combining the Obsidian ShieldObsidian Shield and the Ankh CharmAnkh Charm.

    Although it is not necessary for game progression, it can be very useful. This guide is a tutorial for gathering all the individual items used to craft the accessory.

    Crafting tree[edit | edit source]

    In the table below, the top rows contain items you are likely to acquire first, and items below them are the result of crafting them. An item with no other item directly above it is acquired from the environment or from an enemy drop.

    General Tips[edit | edit source]

    Example of a Rectangle Farm made for Armor Polish and Trifold Map

    Due to the amount of farming required to obtain the Ankh Charm, it's recommended to use Water Candles and Battle Potions to increase spawn rates. It's also good to farm during Blood Moons, since spawn rates will increase significantly as well.

    It's also a good idea to find and build a good farming spot. For Underground enemies, a wide and open section of a cave can be used. It can also be good to build a 168x94 rectangle in order to concentrate all spawns in one area.

    See NPC spawning for further info.

    With the use of Lava, Traps and/or Minions it's very simple to make an AFK farm for the items.

    Some of the components can be obtained before Hardmode: The Obsidian Shield, Bezoar and Nazar.

    Armor BracingArmor Bracing[edit | edit source]

    Armor PolishArmor Polish[edit | edit source]

    The Armor Polish provides immunity to Broken ArmorBroken Armor. It can only be obtained from Armored Skeletons and Blue Armored Bones.

    If farming for Armored Skeletons in a Cavern, then the Trifold Map may also be obtained from Giant Bats. While Blue Armored Bones spawn more commonly, they require Plantera to be defeated.

    VitaminsVitamins[edit | edit source]

    Vitamins provide immunity to the WeakWeak debuff. This Hardmode item is a 1% drop from Corruptors, found in the Corruption and Floaty Grosses, which are found in Underground Crimson.

    Farming in a Corruption biome is recommended, since the Corrupt Slimes and, if in a Desert, Dark Mummies will also drop the Blindfold and Megaphone.

    BezoarBezoar[edit | edit source]

    Farm Example

    The Bezoar is a 1% drop from Toxic Sludge, Hornets and Moss Hornets, which gives immunity to the PoisonedPoisoned debuff. It's better to farm for it in pre-Hardmode, due to the high spawn rate of Hornets and the lack of the stronger enemies found in Hardmode.

    Adhesive BandageAdhesive Bandage[edit | edit source]

    This item is a 1% drop from Werewolves, Angler Fish and, once Plantera has been defeated, Rusty Armored Bones. It gives immunity to the BleedingBleeding debuff.

    During a Full Moon, a significant amount of Werewolves spawn, making it easier to obtain the item.

    The PlanThe Plan[edit | edit source]

    Fast ClockFast Clock[edit | edit source]

    The Fast Clock prevents the SlowSlow debuff, and it can be obtained as a 1% drop from regular Mummies and Wraiths and a 0.5% drop from Pixies.

    Pixies appear in a Hallow biome, Wraiths can be found at night or after smashing an Altar, whilst Mummies appear in a normal Hardmode Desert.

    Trifold MapTrifold Map[edit | edit source]

    The Trifold Map prevents ConfusedConfused, and can be obtained by killing Clowns, Light Mummies and Giant Bats. Trying to look for Clowns is not recommended, as they are rare enemies that only spawn during a Hardmode Blood Moon. Light Mummies are found in a Hallowed Desert, while Giant Bats appear in the Cavern layer during Hardmode.

    NazarNazar[edit | edit source]

    The Nazar is a 1% drop from Cursed Hammers, Cursed Skulls, Enchanted Swords, Crimson Axes, Desktop and Mobile versions and Giant Cursed Skulls, which gives immunity to the CursedCursed debuff.

    Due to Cursed Hammers, Enchanted Swords and Crimson Axes being rare, it's much easier to obtain the item from Cursed Skulls or Giant Cursed Skulls in the Dungeon.

    MegaphoneMegaphone[edit | edit source]

    Megaphones prevent the SilencedSilenced debuff and can be obtained by killing Dark Mummies, Blood Mummies, Pixies and Green Jellyfish.

    Infecting a Desert with the Corruption or Crimson will make obtaining the Megaphone, Vitamins and the Blindfold easier.

    BlindfoldBlindfold[edit | edit source]

    A Blindfold will prevent DarknessDarkness, and can be obtained by killing Corrupt Slimes, Slimelings, Blood Mummies, Crimslimes or Dark Mummies. Dark Mummies can be found in Corrupt deserts and Blood Mummies can be found in Crimson deserts.

    For efficient Blindfold Farming, corrupting a Surface Desert will spawn both enemies. Corrupt Slimes, found in the Corruption, split into 3 Slimelings when killed, and all yield a 1% chance of dropping a Blindfold, effectively increasing efficiency by 4-fold.

    A similar strategy can be used in a crimson world due to the presence of Crimslimes and Blood mummies, however Crimslimes will not split resulting in a lower chance of obtaining a blindfold.

    If you are in a Crimson world and are farming the mummies for the blindfold, it is not recommended to farm during a sandstorm as this will severely decrease the chance of getting dark/ mummies to spawn.
