The Water Walking Potion is a buff potion which grants the Water Walking buff when consumed. The buff allows players to walk on water, honey and lava. The player can sink in the liquid by pressing ▼ Down. This lasts for 5 minutes (Console and Old-gen console versions 3DS version) / 10 (Desktop and Mobile versions), but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Console versionOld-gen console version), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (3DS version).




  • Despite the description, players are also able to walk on lava without taking damage and without the need for the Obsidian Skin Potion. This makes it a viable alternative to Obsidian Skin Potions when traversing the Underworld, as the ingredients required are generally safer to obtain (though more time-consuming to gather in bulk). Players should still take care when dropping long distances onto lava, as they may find themselves partially submerged and take damage from the lava.
  • This potion can be used to make the ocean into makeshift arena
  • While Lava Waders partially combine the functionalities of this potion and the Obsidian Skin Potion, they require an additional accessory slot.
  • The buff icon appears to depict the Guide.
  • Falling onto water will still prevent fall damage.
