Terraria (Wiki): Leather Whip


Everything you need to know

General Information

The Leather Whip is a whip that pierces and damages multiple enemies. The last enemy hit by the Leather Whip is targeted by summoned sentries and minions, amplified with +4ATK. A 50% damage reduction penalty is also applied to consecutive hits. The Leather Whip is the weakest among its class.

By default, whips are great against large waves of enemies. Despite the Leather Whip being accessible early-game, it may be beaten by the Snapthorn should the player choose to risk ingredients at the Jungle to create the latter.

Because of the Leather Whip’s extremely high damage reduction penalty, it should be used in small-scale combat contrary to large waves most whips can handle.

The Leather Whip is best modified with Legendary to improve all stats.
