Because of Terraria’s vast world, exploration is a must to progress. From the Forest you spawn into to Underground biomes, every location is crucial for completing the game. Hence, walking with a maximum of 15 mph won’t budge, let alone escape from some enemies trying to “erase” your existence.
Aside from Boots and Balloons are Wings that greatly help in your mobility. A pair lets you cover a lot more distance faster while completely removing the fall damage you get. Because of their functionality, most players use a couple to defeat Bosses quickly.
In this guide, we’ll help you how to get Wings in Terraria. We include comparison stats so you can choose wisely from our five methods.
1. Crates and Chests
Before using this method, note that you can get Fledgling Wings upon creating a Journey Mode character. If you’re a non-Journey player, you can still get the same equipment through Gravitation Potions and Floating Islands.
Crafting the Gravitation Potion takes time, so we recommend finding Chests in Living Trees and Underground. There’s a 66.67% chance of getting the Gravitation Potion, which is a reasonable risk.
Go back to the Surface and consume the Potion. Afterward, keep moving and toggling the “up” button until you find a Floating Island. If you’re lucky, you might get the Fledgling Wings.
Note: If you have land or air movement-enhancing accessories, you may skip this process. After all, you can properly get Wings in Terraria upon reaching Hardmode.
2. Complete Angler’s Quests
The Angler in Terraria is one of many available NPCs you’ll encounter on the Beach. Interacting with him will open a conversation tab, counting as a Town tenant once you have an available house. Clicking the “Quest” button will show what fish you must catch and its location.
Every successful quest grants several items, from the Fishing set to trophies. However, you may also get the Fin Wings as a reward. Upon reaching Hardmode and the 10-quest-milestone, there’s a one in 70 chance to get the item.
So is it worth the grind? If you’re only opening Terraria to catch fish, yes.
In Hardmode, new enemies will spawn and bring more crafting materials. One of them is the Wyvern – a dragon-like creature present in the Sky and Space layer. Defeating them always drops five to ten Souls of Flight for crafting certain pairs.
The following table shows all Wings in Terraria you can craft with Souls of Flight. We’ve also included all basic stats and crafting materials. Note: The appropriate crafting station is either a Mythril Anvil or an Orichalcum Anvil.
The next table shows all four endgame pairs you can craft at the Ancient Manipulator:
4. Purchasing from NPCs
After progressing in Hardmode and defeating some Bosses, some NPC will sell Wings in Terraria. A sold pair doesn’t mean it’s worse, but it’ll consistently be outperformed by late-game ones, whether through crafting or looting.
5. Defeat Enemies
With tons of monsters in Terraria, you can expect good rewards for your effort in eradicating them. But this method is primarily effective in Hardmode, as no early-game enemy will drop Wings. Consider the following pairs upgrade to your existing ones:
The following table comprises developer items obtainable through Expert and Master modes only. They come in Treasure Bags from defeating any Hardmode Bosses except the Queen Slime.
