The Wormhole Potion: One of the best potions in Terraria


The Wormhole Potion is an essential potion to obtain when playing Terraria with friends. Although fairly simple to get, it greatly helps players with map traversal and boss fights.

Terraria provides players with a plethora of different ways to spice up their gameplay. Some of these come in the form of potions. From simple, yet effective health potions, to potions that turn you into a walking glowstick, they are essential to any players’ toolkit.

The Wormhole Potion is one of the most useful potions when playing in a multiplayer world, allowing you to teleport to anywhere your teammates are. This proves especially effective in boss fights, as it allows the player to quickly go back and rejoin the fight after they have been killed.

How can you obtain a wormhole potion?

There are 3 different ways to get your hands on a wormhole potion.

  • By destroying pots scattered around in your world. This is by far the most effective way to obtain wormhole potions.
  • As a drop from killing slimes.
  • Through crafting.

Note: Wormhole potions only drop in multiplayer sessions. However, there only needs to be one person online on the server for them to be able to be dropped.
