Terraria is full of all types of weapons, but the best weapon you can get in the game by far is the Zenith. This is a weapon that you get at the very end of your playthrough and it is one you get to say you have. When you finally craft this amazing weapon, you won’t have any other bosses left to fight because it takes a lot just to be able to craft it.
There are 8 really good Accessories that just make the Zenith a lot better than it already is. The accessories are the Warrior Emblem, Berserker’s Glove, Destroyer Emblem, Fire Gauntlet, Magma Skull, Putrid Scent, Celestial Stone, and the Stinger Necklace. Every one of these boosts damage, size, and speed.
Not only do they boost the weapon, but most of them also boost other things like critical strike chance or even defense. These accessories are helpful in pretty much every way possible, but the downside is that you have to get a lot of items just to craft these. All the accessories in this list are some of the best you can get in the game.
The best accessories for the Zenith
The 8 accessories we put on this list are mostly crafted towards the end of your playthrough. You will need a lot of other items to make each one and they are varied depending on the rarity of each one. The Emblems are pretty easy to get, but something like the Berserker’s Glove is very hard to get. Try to save all the Equipables you find because you might need them later.
Each item in the game is useful one way or another so make sure you aren’t wasting something you might think is trash. With the exception of a couple on this list, each accessory has a couple of items you are going to need to make so always be on the lookout for each item when you are in certain areas.
Here are the 8 best accessories you can get for the Zenith in Terraria:
1. Warrior Emblem
15% increased melee damage.
How to get: Has a 25% chance to drop from the Wall of Flesh.
The Warrior Emblem is by far the easiest to get on this list. All you need to do is go and defeat the Wall of Flesh until you get it. It has a 25% chance to drop from him so all you need to do is fight him a max of 4 times and you will get it. Once you get a hell bridge set up, you can farm him until you get all the items he drops.
It gives you a 15% increase on your melee damage which is exactly what you need when using the Zenith. It will boost your damage by a lot and will make sure you can destroy pretty much anything in your path. You can craft it into other stuff later, but the Warrior Emblem will probably give the best melee bonus out of any other accessory.
2. Berserker’s Glove
Increases melee knockback, 12% increased melee speed, enables auto swing for melee weapons, and increases the size of melee weapons. It also makes it so that enemies are more likely to target you.
How to get: It is crafted by combining a Power Glove with Flesh Knuckles at a Tinkerer’s Workshop.
To get this item, you will need to go through a lot of steps. We only said that you need a Power Glove and Flesh Knuckles, but you will need a couple more items to even make those. All the items aren’t the rarest ones in the game, but they are pretty tedious to find. Once you get this overpowered accessory, it will definitely be worth all the time you put into getting it.
It increases a ton of stuff like speed, knockback, and the size of your weapon. If you have your Zenith to the max level, this will just boost your weapon to its limits. Not to mention if you have the melee armor equipped. This accessory is a must-have if you are using a Zenith.
3. Destroyer Emblem
10% increased damage and 8% increased critical strike chance.
How to get: It is crafted by combining an Avenger Emblem with the Eye of the Golem at a Tinkerer’s Workshop.
This is another Emblem but the damage scaling isn’t as good as the Warrior Emblem. The upside to it though is that you have an 8% increased critical strike chance. This means that you will deal more damage more often. Yes, the damage scaling isn’t the best, but the critical hits will make up for it. It is harder to get than the other Emblems, but it is worth getting.
If you have these three accessories equipped at once, you will get a huge boost to your damage and all-around stats for your sword. The other accessories below will be hard to beat though because you only have a certain number of slots. You will need to choose wisely which ones you want to have equipped at once.
4. Fire Gauntlet
Increases melee knockback and melee attacks inflict fire damage, 12% increased melee damage and speed, enables auto swing for melee weapons, and increases the size of melee weapons.
How to get: It is crafted by combining a Magma Stone and a Mechanical Glove at a Tinkerer’s Workshop.
This is by far our favorite accessory when it comes to swords because it gives you a lot to you in one accessory. You get increased knockback, size, and an auto-swing mode. You also get a 12% melee damage increase and it also inflicts fire damage with every swing of your weapon. This is helpful to deal extra damage when not hitting the enemy.
This is one of the best accessories you can get for the Zenith or even any melee weapon in general. It has by far some of the best stat boosts of any other accessory and is definitely worth the grind to get all the pieces for it. It is not easy so be prepared for a long ride to craft this thing.
5. Magma Skull
Melee attacks inflict fire damage and grants immunity to fire blocks.
How to get: It is crafted by combining a Magma Stone and an Obsidian Skull at a Tinkerer’s Workshop.
This item is obviously not as good as the Fire Gauntlets, but it will suffice until you can get it. It only has 2 buffs and it is a pretty good item. You can inflict fire damage with your attacks and it also grants immunity to fire blocks. It isn’t the best item in the world, but it will hold you over until you can get something better.
It is actually very easy to get and you can craft it pretty early on in your playthrough. You obviously won’t have the Zenith when you craft it, but you can at least have it when you finally make it. It also works very well with other melee weapons so take advantage of it when you can.
6. Putrid Scent
Enemies are less likely to target you and 5% increased damage and critical strike chance.
How to get: It has a 20% drop chance from a Corrupted Mimic in the underground Corruption.
You won’t find this item until you get into Hard Mode. You also can’t get it if you have a Crimson World. It is found by defeating a Corrupted Mimic in the Underground Corruption but you aren’t guaranteed to get it right away. It has a 20% drop chance so you need to farm them for a bit if you aren’t lucky enough to get it on your first try.
It gives you a 5% damage boost and critical strike chance. It also makes it so that enemies are less likely to target you. This is good if you want to explore certain areas with a lot of enemies. It is great for the Zenith because you get the critical and damage boosts with it.
7. Celestial Stone
Minor increase to damage, melee speed, critical strike chance, life regeneration, defense, mining speed, and minion knockback.
How to get: It is crafted by combining a Sun Stone and a Moon Stone at a Tinkerer’s Workshop.
This item is one of the coolest in the game. There is a higher version of this called the Celestial Shell, but this will suffice because it gives the exact same bonuses either way. It gives you minor boosts to damage, melee speed, critical strike chance, life regeneration, mining speed, and minion knockback. It is definitely worth getting because of all the bonuses it gives.
You won’t get this until late Hard Mode so once you find the Sun and Moon Stones, make sure to keep them to make this amazing accessory. It helps boost your Zenith a ton and it is worth all the time you spend crafting it.
8. Stinger Necklace
Increases armor penetration by 5 and releases bees and douses the user in honey when damaged.
How to get: It is crafted by combining a Shark Tooth Necklace with Honey Comb at a Tinkerer’s Workshop.
This is another item that isn’t the greatest, but it is a good item to have. It is good for fighting enemies with armor. It increases your armor penetration by 5 and then douses you in honey when you get damaged. It also releases bees to attack your enemy as well. It is not the greatest accessory, but it is definitely worth crafting.
Your Zenith will do a ton of extra damage to any armored enemy and just the sheer distance the sword can travel is insane. If you haven’t used the Zenith yet, then go craft it for yourself.
How to craft the Zenith
The Zenith is the Zenith of all the weapons in Terraria, and if you don’t know how to craft it, you are in for a wild ride. You will need a total of 10 different specific Swords from all points in the game. You will need the starting sword all the way to the endgame swords. Every single one is extremely important to complete the full sword.
Keep in mind that all the swords aren’t easy to get since they are either crafted from random materials or farmed from a specific enemy or boss. They are also only found in certain worlds so you might not even have one sword type in your playthrough. If that is the case, you will most likely need to go to a different world to find it.
Here are all the Swords needed to craft the Zenith:
- Copper Shortsword
- Enchanted Sword
- Bee Keeper
- The Horseman’s Blade
- Influx Waver
- Star Wrath
- Terra Blade
