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[]

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[]

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 enemy spawn rates. It's also good to farm during Blood Moons, since enemy spawn rates will increase significantly as well. Note that the Blood Moon's spawn rate increase only apply to the Surface layer.

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 168×94 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[]

Armor PolishArmor Polish[]

The Armor Polish provides immunity to Broken ArmorBroken Armor. It is a 1% / 2% drop 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.


Vitamins provide immunity to the WeakWeak debuff. This Hardmode item is a 1% / 2% 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. Furthermore, Corruptors spawn more frequently than Floaty Grosses, which lead to more efficiency.

Farm Example

The Bezoar is a 1% / 2% 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[]

This item is a 1% / 2% 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[]

Fast ClockFast Clock[]

The Fast Clock prevents the SlowSlow debuff, and it can be obtained as a 1% / 2% drop from regular Mummies, Pixies and Wraiths.

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[]

The Trifold Map prevents ConfusedConfused, and has a 1% / 2% chance to drop from 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.

Countercurse MantraCountercurse Mantra[]


The Nazar is a 1% / 2% drop from Cursed Hammers, Cursed Skulls, Enchanted Swords, Crimson Axes, 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.


Megaphone prevents the SilencedSilenced debuff. It is a 1% / 2% drop from Dark Mummies, Pixies, Green Jellyfish and Blood Mummies.

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


Blindfold prevents DarknessDarkness, and is a 1% / 2% drop from Corrupt Slimes, Slimelings, Crimslimes, Dark Mummies, and Blood 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 Corrupt Slimes and Dark Mummies. Corrupt Slimes split into 3 Slimelings when killed, and all yield a 1% / 2% 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, and Blood Mummies only exist on Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and Nintendo Switch version Nintendo Switch version.

If one is 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/Blood Mummies to spawn.
