Terraria Shimmer Guide: Location, All Item Transmutations, & more

Posted on by justin
Shimmer in Terraria is a liquid used to transform different items, enemies, and NPCs. For instance, you can throw Luminite into Shimmer to gain Chlorophye Ore, making it a useful environmental station to make items like Turtle Armor and plenty more. Here we'll cover everything you can do with Shimmer in Terraria and where you can find it.

Where to Find Shimmer in Terraria

Terraria Shimmer Guide You can find Shimmer in Terraria by finding the Aether, a pre-Hardmode sub-biome. After the launch of version 1.4.4, you’ll know when you’re near the Aether if you can see stars in an area of the underground layer. Tip: Craft a Bottomless Shimmer Bucket by combining 10x Luminite Bar and 10x Bottomless Water Bucket. That way, you won’t need to go back to the Shimmer pool every time you want to transmute an item. Note: Read our Terraria Beginner’s Guide to help if you’re having trouble going deep into the Underground Jungle biome to get to the Aether.

Terraria Shimmer Item Transmutations

Terraria Shimmer Items Note that Terraria players can submerge NPCs (except town pets) into Shimmer. Doing so will transform the NPCs into their Shimmered forms. The only result is a change in appearance and doesn’t affect the NPCs’ behavior or sold wares. With that, here are the items you can throw into Shimmer pools and their results:
