The Lava Charm is an accessory that grants immunity to lava for 7 seconds. It is found in Chests in the Cavern layer (only in the lava layer on the Desktop version and Mobile version), as well as from Hellstone Crates and Obsidian Crates with a
5*1/20 (5%) chance.
When the Lava Charm is equipped and the player comes into contact with lava, a 7-second countdown begins, signified by a lava meter that displays over the player's head. It operates similarly to the Breath meter, but displays flame icons instead of bubbles. Lava immunity time is recharged gradually by exiting lava, the same way breathing time is recharged by exiting water (albeit much more slowly).
- Unlike permanent immunity charms, equipping the Lava Charm does not give immediate protection; equipping it after falling into lava will not help.
- Unlike most necklaces, it is not visible when equipped to players or mannequins. This also applies to the Molten Charm.
- To clarify, the "lava layer" includes the lower portion of the Caverns where lava can naturally spawn, not the Underworld (Hell) biome. To search for a lava charm, try to rapidly explore a wide area of this layer. Bombs, naturally spawning minecart tracks, and Spelunker Potions can help search a wide area quickly.
- This accessory will make the mining of Hellstone easier.
- It will also help if the player gets pushed into the lava in The Underworld.
- The Lava Waders, Molten Charm, Hellfire Treads, Terraspark Boots, and Demonic Hellcart stack with the Lava Charm to increase lava immunity by 7 seconds each to a maximum total of 42 / 14 seconds. Of these, only the Demonic Hellcart is not itself a Lava Charm upgrade.
