  • The Shark Tooth Necklace is very useful in pre-Hardmode and early Hardmode because it has a fixed armor penetration value, and can be dropped in any Blood Moon.
    • It is easier to obtain this item pre-Hardmode, since the new Hardmode spawns will displace some of the Dripplers and Blood Zombies that drop it.
    • As with all rare drops, placing a Water Candle and/or using a Battle Potion during a Blood Moon can increase the spawn rates to help obtain it.
  • The Shark Tooth Necklace is great for overcoming the shortcomings of early weapons that have a high fire rate but low damage, such as the Minishark or the Bee Gun, which fall short when fighting enemies with high defense. It increases the weapon's damage by 2 against all enemies with more than 5 defense. For instance, Skeletron's Hands with 14 defense normally reduce the base damage of a Minishark with Musket Balls from 14 to 6, but the Shark Tooth Necklace increases this to 8, which is equivalent to a +33.33% boost.
    • The damage boost can be increased further by raising the player's armor penetration, e.g. with an additional Stinger Necklace and the Sharpened buff.
