  • The effects of the Celestial Shell do not stack with the effects of any of its constituent parts.
  • Hiding the accessory hides the Werewolf and Merfolk transformations while still applying the boosts.
  • Wearing the Celestial Shell in a vanity slot will instantly change the character's appearance into a Werewolf – even during daytime, though the character will still change into a Merfolk underwater. Since it is only vanity, no boosts are given.
  • Despite being equipped in the accessory slot, dyes will only modify the transformations if placed in the armor dye slots. The helmet slot dyes the head, the chestplate slot dyes the body, and the leggings slot dyes the legs.


  • Despite the Celestial Shell adding 2% less damage than the Avenger Emblem, it adds 2% critical strike chance, making the difference in damage increase minimal.


  • Even though all items involved in crafting the Celestial Shell are available in all versions, it is only craftable on Desktop version Desktop, Console version Console, and Mobile version Mobile.
  • Every other part of the Celestial Shell are pre-Plantera except the Sun Stone, which is post-Golem.


  • Desktop Can now hide the Celestial Shell's werewolf and merfolk transformation.
