Transmutation at its finest.

The mysterious liquid in Terraria, aptly named Shimmer, has been shown to have transmutative properties. Mainly found in the Aether biome, most items that get submerged in Shimmer will become something else. Moreover, even monsters and NPCs can get a new look after coming into contact with Shimmer. But the main use for Shimmer is the various Shimmer recipes that involve items. So we have gathered a full list of items that transmute when thrown into Shimmer and the resulting items you can get from them.

All Terraria Shimmer recipes — Ingredients and resulting items

To make the items transmute once thrown into Shimmer, all you need to do is remove them from your inventory and throw them into the liquid. The item will then submerge and after a short pause, pop out from the liquid, giving you a chance to snatch it.

I have been into gaming since the days of Sega Mega Drive and Amiga. Over the years in gaming, I have raided at a high level, completed rare achievements, coached other players, and written about games since 2016. Whether it’s been clicking heads; developing cities, colonies, and empires; or commanding parties of adventurers; I’ve always prided myself on being able to understand the underlying mechanics of games. Outside of gaming, I enjoy a variety of activities and hobbies, including playing with my pup Astra, working out, as well as crafting, painting, and leatherwork.
