How to use Terraria wings
When you’ve acquired a set of Terraria wings, you’re able to use them by pressing and holding the jump key. Certain types of wings allow you to hover in mid-air by holding the down key during flight, while others let you speed your ascent by pressing the up key. Once you’ve run out of flight time, you’re able to continue gliding by holding the jump key.
Flight time is reset whenever you land on solid ground or use a climbing item. Terraria wings also make the player immune to fall damage, which is even more of a reason to go out and find yourself a pair.
What are the best wings in Terraria?
As with most questions like this, the answer is entirely subjective, and it depends on what you’re looking for. Here are our picks for some of the best wings in Terraria, based on your goals.
If you want to be a true Icarus and fly as close to the sun as possible, the best sets for you are Stardust wings or Solar wings, which offer a massive max height of 167 tiles.
Go the distance
If you’re looking to fly far off to other lands, you should go with the Nebula mantle or the Vortex booster, as they allow you to both hover and move horizontally. With these beauties, you;ll be zipping across the world of Terraria in a flash.
All-round flapping machines
The best all-rounder wings have got to be the Fishron Wings, which have good height and speed – but the real reason you’ll want to snag these is to gain the ability to fly just as efficiently underwater. Who needs the law of physics when you’ve got Fishron on your side?
There you have it, those are all Terraria wings you can obtain while playing through the game. If you’re looking for more help, take a look at our Terraria NPCs guide.
