Terraria is a pretty challenging game especially if it is your first time playing. One very important part of the game is the accessory slots because these are what give you bonuses to pretty much anything in the game. If you don’t have enough space for every accessory, you might be wondering if there is a way to increase how many lots you have?
There are really only 2 ways to increase your accessory slots. Both are relatively similar, but you need to either be playing Expert Mode or Master Mode. If you are in those difficulties, once you beat the Wall of Flesh, you will earn an extra slot to put whatever you want into.
Yes, that is really the only way to increase the number of slots you have. It is very difficult to play on those difficulties, but believe me, the extra slot does help a lot, especially when you finally get into Hard Mode. Unfortunately, there is no other way to get extra slots than these 2 modes.
How to get more accesssory slots?
As we said before, if you are playing on Expert Mode, you will get an item called the Demon Heart from killing the Wall of Flesh. This will allow you to add an extra accessory slot to your inventory. Keep in mind that if you take your character into a normal world, the slot will be gone. The slot is only there for Expert Mode worlds.
If you are playing in Master Mode, as soon as you defeat the Wall of Flesh, an accessory slot will be added to our inventory without you having to use a Demon Heart. We don’t know why they did this, but it does make it a little easier so you don’t miss out on the item itself if there are multiple people playing in the world.
If you don’t want to play either of those modes, then sorry to break it to you, you can’t get an extra slot. It does suck, but it is a reward for playing on a harder difficulty. If you can play on either one, we would highly recommend you to because it is very challenging.
What are the social accessory slots for?
These slots are cosmetic only and make it look like you have different gear on. If you don’t like the look of your currently equipped gear, you can hide it. If you like the look of another item but don’t really like the stats it gives you, placing it in the social slot will give you the look while having a separate item equipped.
It is a great addition to the game and it makes it so that you can make your character the way you want them to look, without any of the repercussions with using certain items. There are also social clothing slots so you can have cosmetic items over gear that you might not like the look of.
If you find a really cool-looking piece of gear or clothing, make sure to equip it to the social slot and throw some Dyes on it to make it look unique.
