Turtle Shells are used solely to craft Turtle armor, which can in turn be used to craft Beetle armor. Crafting all pieces of Turtle armor requires a total of 3 Turtle Shells, but, since Beetle Armor has two chest variants, you would need 4 Turtle Shells to craft the armor with both chest pieces. On average, you will need to kill about 90 Giant Tortoises for a 90% chance to get 3 Turtle Shells (about 140 for 99%). If you want to get 4 Turtle Shells instead, this number is raised to 110 for 90% chance (and 170 for 99%).
- Despite being called a Turtle Shell, it is dropped by the Giant Tortoise. The only turtles in the game are the Sea Turtle, Pet Turtle, Turtle Mount, Turtle, and the Jungle Turtle.
- Even though it has a higher drop rate than the Bezoar, it is rarer overall due to the Giant Tortoise's relatively low spawn rate.
