Terraria: Flicker Special Interactions

In this guide you will learn about the new liquid, added to Terraria in an update 1.4.4.



The new liquid is called Shimmer (flicker), and it looks like this:

New biome with Lake of Shimmer appears in NEW (created in the update 1.4.4) worlds under the Ocean from the side of the Jungle biome. Start digging down the coast and come across a stone dome with a lake of Glimmer in the center..

It can also be obtained from Abyssal Bucket and Luminite. Combine them and get the Abyssal Bucket of Shimmer.


Flicker has multiple uses. Firstly, Flicker will disassemble into components any object, player-created. For example, the Ankh Shield will be dismantled into an Obsidian Shield and accessories., added to it. Those, in turn, will be dismantled for accessories., dropping out of mobs, etc..
This also applies to furniture., who will give back the wood, or other material from which it was made, and to weapons and tools.

Secondly, if you plunge into the Flicker yourself, you will lose control of the character, it will become transparent and begin to fall through the blocks down in a straight line, until it hits empty space.

Thirdly, some items and accessories have a special interaction with Shimmer. For example, if you throw torches or arrows at him, you will get Flickering Torches and Flickering Arrows. If a slug falls into the flicker, he will turn into a Shimmer Slug. The following is a small list of currently known interactions.. Feel free to add to the list in the comments.
