How to get the Lava Charm in Terraria

Lava truly possesses a certain charm.

There are many valuable items that you can find in Terraria, some of which cannot be crafted but have to be located out in the world. Almost every biome has specific items that fit this category, and one handy item for the late game is the Lava Charm. A Lava Charm fits into an accessory slot, which allows it to grant you the benefit of lava immunity for 7 seconds when equipped. This useful perk has a mechanic similar to how drowning works, but that is not all you can do with this item. However, getting your hands on one can be difficult, so read on for the best way to find the Lava Charm in Terraria.

Where to find the Lava Charm in Terraria

There are four possible avenues to find a Lava Charm in Terraria. You can loot it from Hellstone Crates or Obsidian Crates with a 5% chance of finding it from one. The third way of finding one is to loot it from Chests that spawn in the lower Caverns biome. You can recognize this lower part of Caverns by lava pools that are starting to spawn as you go deeper. And lastly, the fourth way is to Shimmer Transmute a Magma Stone, which will then turn into a Lava Charm. Note that this process also works the other way around, turning the charm back to stone.

What is the Lava Charm used for in Terraria?

Besides the use when equipped in an accessory slot we have previously discussed, there are other uses for the Lava Charm in the game, specifically in crafting. All recipes involving the Lava Charm are crafted at the Tinkerer’s Workshop crafting station:

  • Lava Waders — lava-immunity boots crafted from Lava Charm + Obsidian Rose + Obsidian Water Walking Boots
  • Magma Skull — fire damage resistance accessory/helm crafted from Lava Charm + Obsidian Skull
  • Molten Charm — fire damage resistance accessory crafted from Lava Charm + Obsidian Skull
  • Molten Skull Rose — fire damage resistance accessory/helm crafted from Lava Charm + Obsidian Skull Rose

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.
