The Ironskin Potion is a buff potion which grants the Ironskin buff when consumed. The buff increases the player's defense by 8, thus reducing damage by 4 / 6/ 8 (). This lasts for 8 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop versiontModLoader version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Console versionOld-gen console versionNintendo Switch), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (3DS version).

It has a small chance to appear as a bonus drop from Slimes.

Tips[]

  • The Ironskin Potion is more effective than the Endurance Potion against attacks weaker than 40 damage (60 in expert mode and 80 in master mode); however, it is most effective to use both at the same time.
  • The Ironskin Potion is a very useful asset during the game as it requires very cheap and easily farmable items, making it easy to craft a large number of them.

Trivia[]

  • Although it can be made with Lead Ore, it still has Iron in the name.
    • Lead in real life is actually toxic when orally ingested.

History[]

  • Desktop 1.2: Can now be crafted with lead ore instead of iron ore.
  • Desktop 1.1: Fixed a bug where it gave 10 defense. Now gives 8 defense, as stated in the tooltip.
