There’s a wide variety of pre-Hardmode accessories to choose from in Terraria that can grant stat boosts or special abilities that can help you conquer pre-Hardmode. Here are the ten best accessories you should keep an eye out for.

Cloud in a Bottle

Cloud in a Bottle in Terraria.

It’s among the first must-have accessories when in a new world. When equipped, it gives you the ability to Double Jump. From safely landing down to escaping enemies, you’d surely find Cloud in a Bottle to be such a game changer.

To get the Cloud in a Bottle, you need to open Gold Chests in the Underground and Cavern Layers. You can also use it as an ingredient to craft the Bundle of Balloons, which is an accessory upgrade.

Pygmy Necklace

A useful combat accessory for the Summoner Class. It grants +1 Minion Capacity. However, if you’re playing in 3DS and Windows Phone, you’ll need to defeat Plantera to get it.

You can buy the Pygmy Necklace from the Witch Doctor at night for 20 Gold. If you’re on PC, Console, and Mobile, you buy it from him at any stage.

Mana Flower

Mana Flower Terraria.

A great Mana accessory for the Magic Class in pre-Hardmode, as it grants -8% Mana Consumption. It also automatically consumes your Mana Potions in your inventory when you run out of Mana — allowing you to focus more when in a fight.
