Anyone who has played Terraria knows how important movement speed is to your gameplay. Running across the map can take ages without items to help you. During boss fights, not having a valid movement option is a death sentence. In order to dodge some of these attacks, ludicrous speed is required. So, it’s a great idea to get the hottest new boots! The Lightning Boots in Terraria even stack with wings, allowing you to get from point A to point B at the speed of light. So, let’s learn how to get moving a little bit faster than usual.
How to Get Lightning Boots in Terraria
In order to get the Lightning Boots in Terraria, you will first need to find a pair of Movement Speed-enhancing boots. Combine those with the Rocket Boots to make the Spectre Boots. Then, combine the Spectre Boots with an Anklet of the Wind and an Aglet at the Tinkerer’s Workshop. The Lightning Boots provide a significant movement speed boost while also allowing you to fly for a short amount of time.
The first step requires any boots that improve your movement speed and the Rocket Boots. Movement-speed boosting boots can be found in Gold, Frozen, or Sandstone chests, as well as various crates from fishing.
Rocket Boots are purchased from the Goblin Tinkerer NPC for five Gold.
Combine them at a Tinkerer’s Workshop!
Now, you just need the Anklet of the Wind and an Aglet. The Anklet is located in Jungle Chests and Crates. The Aglet is located in basic chests and crates.
Throw these together to make the Lightning Boots! These stack with Wings to max out your fly time, as well as give you a gigantic movement speed boost. This is a perfect item for dodging attacks and exploring alike.
That’s not all you can make in Terraria, though! Be sure to look out for our Cell Phone guide so you can have all the info you need while spelunking! You can also get some more combat combos going with our Turtle Armor guide, a great midgame option!
