Shield of Terror / Eye Mask - Repair Efficiency


Recommended Posts

Okay, so to make everyone have an easier time figuring out which foods give how much durability / % of repairs, here's a chart I filtered.

Just Ctrl + F to check which food you are trying to make and see if it's efficient.

raw monter meat recovers lmost hafl durability without needing to cook or waste food.

yeah, i was suprised how good mm was. According to this table, it takes the absolute value of hp and hunger.

Also, red caps work great as well, if you dont like playing with spiders and hounds.

Red caps have the same repair % as blue caps though, so blue caps still have more utility since it can heal the player as well.

Honey ham is probably what I'll default to. Seems like a pretty solid choice.

2 Jerky + 2 Honey (~96%) is worth more than a single Honey Ham (~80%) considering the ingredients are the same. Honey Ham is only worth if Leafy Meat + Raw Meat / Leafy Meat + Cooked or Jerky MM is used in the recipe.

Raw Monster Meat alone gives ~36%, so it's faster to repair with Raw Monster Meat than a Honey Ham since you need to cook the latter. In terms of ease of access and abundance, Raw MM can technically be the best choice.

I like Glommer Goop as it's a fascinating choice to repair SoT / EM. It can stack up to 40, never spoils, and repairs 56% per goop, and can be used to heal the player for 40 hp too.

raw monter meat recovers almost half durability without needing to cook or waste food.

According to the diagram, raw monster meat is about 35%?

Honey ham restores about twice as much and it is very easy to spam. 

Also, I'm Wormwood, all I do is waste food. I get rot faster than I can store it.

Most importantly, I can also only occupy one space for the honey ham to feed myself and the shield rather than have a separate space for shield food. Not only that but honey ham has more than twice the lifespan of raw monster meat (before you have to cook it). I also like that I dont have to spam feed it, I'd like to get as close as possible to full with a single action as to lose less dps.

I don't think I want to carry 3 separate food items. 1 for myself and two for the shield. I want practicality over efficiency. What looks good on paper isn't going to be as good in practice.

As a quick 70 something heal, that alone makes it worth it to me. Also has a long shelf life and I cant eat it myself to save on inventory space.

Not faster, more efficient. In the heat of battle I'd like to reduce having to heal/feed myself AND my shield as least as possible.

I'd have to disagree, honey ham is as abundant as MM. Honey ham just has a few extra steps which I'd rather take outside of battle than spam feed my shield. For characters that are not Wormwood they can quickly heal the shield and the themselves with one item. I'd hate to accidently eat MM mid battle or juggle two food items. 

I see this mistake be made a lot by people who don't think about how things that seem the most efficient are not always the most practical.

I'll agree with MM being better outside of battle (at camp), where you aren't spending an extra inventory space for the MM.

I also find it interesting you bring up monster meat winning on prep time over honey ham but dont bring up prep time when comparing jerky to honey ham. Sometimes Jerky comes to complete stop in its process because its raining.

That's way too expensive for me. I have other uses for gloomer goop like using it for Guardian fights, fertilizer (Wormwood) or Above average trees. I also find it surprising you like this choice given its extra steps to acquire (for large quantities) but frown upon Honey Ham for having prep time.

Now that I think about it, I don't even come across MM that often. I usually have big meat because of bosses or my pig farm. I have an ever increasing amount of honey ham (about 76) in a bundling wrap because I can't get rid of big meats fast enough.

A wendy may come across MM more easily but Kiting Spiders as Wormwood is significantly slower than a pig farm.

Only MM I get passively is via hounds.

I have nothing against Honey Ham. In practicality, I just don't use Honey Ham (or other honey related dishes for that matter) as often since I can make dishes without the need to make a bee farm. And I don't get hit.

Viewing this table in terms of practicality certainly deserves its merits though.

Honey ham isn't necessarily for healing (Wormwood can't) as it also serves as food for the survivor on top of healing the shield for a very decent amount. 

It's just a matter of play style I supposed, I always try to be as practical as possible along with being efficient. That includes trying to have as many vacant inventory slots as possible by trying to avoid having multiple items that could functionally be replaced by one.

The helmet is not good for tanking IMO, but more to take those silly hits on day to day small battles, earthquakes chipping away durability, etc. It can also prove valuable to add durability to other more expensive armors I guess but generally speaking I just use it as an every day survival tool, and for big fights use something else.

I constantly keep finding monster meat, rot and red caps on my ways, that’s usually enough to keep it at 100%

I agree on being practical, that’s why I don’t carry food for the helmet at all, I just fix it after battles while I move around.
Personally I almost never have honeyham on me, the food I carry depends a lot on the stage of the game and what foods has the team focused on. For example right now I am playing Wickerbottom and carry a bundle of dragonpie, as I have a lot of drsgonfruit seeds and I grow them instantly whenever I need more.

I won’t feed the dragonpie to the helmet though, unless it’s about to break, I’m in the middle of a battle, and I have no other choice. 

Tl;DR: The helmet itself is versatile enough that you can both feed it junk you find around (rot included) or share it some of whatever food you have available, and that’s probably the point of it. Carrying food just for the helmet seems a waste of space, unless you are planning to tank stuff with it, which honestly I wouldn’t.

Appreciate the effort but it's a pretty useless item to begin with (and it also has low durability AND breaks at 0 durability), plus you can feed it whatever, including rot or monster meat so it doesn't really matter. As long as you're fighting mobs, they will drop fuel for it.

 

Cooking food for it is a waste of time.

how is it useless? im saving a lot of crowns by just using this item.is the first time i refused to clean the ruins in the 1st summer to, instead, explore the ocean since i got all my QoL loot from a ruins rush (made with this "useless" helmet) and i dont need crowns. At most i will craft few suits in autumn

but im with you that cooking for the item is a waste of time when you have MM delivery every few minutes

i dont know how people farm their food but y never need to farm meat, i just live forever with moose meat. My worlds are filled with rot because i dont pick the food loot from enemies 90% of the time. Now with this hat i pick the MM to fed it in case i plan to fight

what i can understand, i have done it, is to use your own food to repeair it but actually cooking to get 100% restoration is silly because you wont wait until the helmet is that low to use it but if people have fun cooking let them

it's useless because the alternative -football helm- is cheap and you don't have to worry about taking too much damage and losing the item, needing 20 more days to get a new one.

 

plus you carry rope on you all the time for wraps, so you have 1/2 materials for the football helm on you, you can craft another if you're in trouble etc

 

i can see the use for it in a world with many players where pig skins have to be distributed in between them

sure, if you play alone and you like to hammer all the pig houses you find in your way (i like to let everything as they spawn) this item is useless. For me that i manually farm each pig skin makes a little difference since i will safe pig skin from helmets to build more houses for decoration or craft more hambats or when i play with my unexperience friends i will be able to have always armor since they dont have habits like farming pig skin or other kind of armor so in that regard i will be more relaxed and will be able to help them in other stuff instead of wasting time farming enough pig skin for 4 players. What is the deal of having to wait 20? it doesnt break unless you mess

that is a good reason to bring pig skin with you but doesnt change anything. Also by the time i have bundle wraps i have a bunch of thulecite crowns so on each world i could craft maybe 4 helmets in total before i forget about them?

 

to be honest, this items isnt that good but not because of the reasons you are mentioned but by the fact that after the 1st autumn you wont use anything but thulecite crowns until you get the CC crown

so dont call an item useless when you are using even more useless stuff. The game can have gear for different playstyles and experience and this item is good enough to be added to a lot of playstyles

sorry if you dont like it

I dont see why not to hammer them when you need boards and cut stone anyway. Leaving them as is just makes things take longer. And you can rebuild them as you wish.

 

I'm not using thulecite helms as much, football helms are way too convenient and cheap. If you carry 20 pig skins on you, you have the equivalent of  6k armor on you on demand at the expense of one item slot, allowing you to never worry about armor again.

but having 1 crown in your inventory frees that pigskin slot for that i said you shouldnt say that the new item is useless when clearly is just your taste the "problem"

i like alive worlds, what can i say? anyways you dont need that much for making alchemist engines and i only need few pig skin that i can obtain via kiling pigs or hammerring a tourchstone's pig heads so i dont mind chopping and mining a litle before going to the caves. Just my playstyle, nothing wrong with your method or any other method, i just mentioned it because there is more scenarios than "i play solo in a server with resources for more than 3 players and grab everything i saw", there is other playstyles that arent in the "do the most efficient thing" kind of style

for me is convinient since i tent to dont pick food (too much meat from moose hunting season) so i can just use the loot from mobs to heal the helmet and use the pig skin for moonrock (this might be not needed anymore because of CC and the change to moonwalls recipe) and  moonrock pig statues farm while i let the world as it was generated

it's useless because the alternative -football helm- is cheap and you don't have to worry about taking too much damage and losing the item, needing 20 more days to get a new one.

On the world I play at they spawned the eye on me at about day 40ish, it’s now like day 250 and I still keep the same helmet. I don’t worry much about it (and I get hit a lot).

I won’t say it’s better than just carrying pig skins, it’s a matter of choices and playstyle honestly.

I hope when the terraria crossover event is over we are still able to summon the bosses, so we still have the choice. I like this helmet a lot more than harvesting and carrying pig skins.

Funny story, I used this helmet to easily get my second Eye of Terror Kill now I have TWO Eye Masks and can swap them out to repair when ones close to breaking.

OP head gear is OP.. not to mention: it saves you a ton of other resources you can use elsewhere like pigskin, grass & rope.

Anyone who says it’s trash, probably just gets hit too often and theirs breaks.

It will stay, and is on by default. You cann disable the Terrarium from spawning in world generation settings

isnt op and people who said is useless have their part of reason (i dont share that opinion) since is just a football helmet, thing that can easily farmed

thulecite crowns are faar better and can be crafted in the 1st autumn

asuming that people who dont share the opinion of the helmet being useful is because they get hit... is very arrogant and more coming from someone who plays victim everytime anyone insinuates a lack of experience in your comments
