The Breathing Reed is a tool found in underwater chests. When active, the tube will extend three blocks upward from the player. As long as the top of this tube is above the water level and within empty space, the player will be able to breathe. It also doubles the length of time the player's breath will last underwater (from 23 seconds to 46 seconds) and doubles the time it takes for their health to drain when out of breath. In order for it to take effect, the player must hold it.

Trivia Edit

  • The Breathing Reed has one of the tallest drop-sprites in Terraria - approximately the height of a character!
  • The Breathing Reed stacks with the effects from a Diving Helmet, allowing for long periods of time underwater.
