Accessories, Mounts, Tools, and Tiles

Frog Legs and all Tinkers (Rework) – Players can now stack any Frog Leg-derived tinker to gain additive benefits – Jump Speed Bonus reduced from 48% to 32% – Fall damage protection reduced roughly proportionally to the Jump Speed bonus

Squire’s Shield and Apprentice’s Scarf (Tier Change) – Dark Mages in Tier 1 and Tier 3 Old One’s Army now drop Squire’s Shield and Apprentices Scarf, allowing access to +Sentry accessories pre-Hardmode. The drop rate is 50% to drop one of them in Classic, and 100% in Expert/Master. These two items have been removed from the Ogre’s drop pool.

Hive Pack (Buff) – Now increases the firing rate of Hornet Summons by about 30% – Increases the damage of Wasp Gun by from 31 to 36, and increases the defense penetration of wasps from 10 to 15

Magiluminescence (Nerf) – All Mobility enhancing stat bonuses reduced by 25%.

Spore Sac (Buff) – Movement speed of the spores has been dramatically increased – Range at which spores will begin chasing targets increased by 20%

Lucky Horseshoe and Fledgling Wings (Tier Change) – Reverted the change that put Lucky Horseshoe in Gold Chests, and put them back into Sky Chests on worldgen – Fledgling Wing has been removed as primary drop from Sky Chests, and has a 1/40 chance of being secondary loot – Sky Crates have been updated to account for the above changes.

Leaf Wings (Tier Change) – Now sold by Witch Doctor after Plantera has been defeated, but otherwise under the same conditions. – Wing Power has been increased to be the same as uncommon pre-Plantera Wings (Flame, Butterfly, Bee and Bat) – Cost has been increased to 1.5 Platinum

Magic Quiver, Molten Quiver, and Stalker’s Quiver (Nerf) – Damage bonus is now additive with other ranged damage bonuses, instead of multiplicative. This will generally result in slightly lower overall damage, especially when you have high quantities of Ranged damage bonus. – Projectile speed bonus now also increases speed gained from ammo. Previously, it only increased the bow’s projectile speed value.

Philosopher’s Stone and Charm of Myths (Rework) – Potion Sickness reduction is no longer “front-loaded” at the time of using the potion. Instead, the cooldown is dynamically updated whenever the accessory is equipped. Equipping it will reduce the remaining cooldown proportionally, and removing it will increase the remaining cooldown proportionally. As long as you are wearing it, your effective remaining cooldown is reduced. This means that it you wear it for half of a minute and then remove it, you will only reduce 7.5 seconds from the total cooldown instead of 15. It also means that if you forget to equip it when using a potion, you can still equip it after to reduce the remaining cooldown.

Volatile Gel (Buff) – Projectiles now fire farther and with a flatter arc – Fire rate increased from every 50 frames to every 40 frames (1.2 per second -> 1.5 per second)

Soaring Insignia (Nerf) – All Mobility enhancing stat bonuses reduced by 25%. The infinite flight has not been changed.

Magma Skull and Molten Skull Rose (Rework) – The recipe for both of these items now takes a Lava Charm instead of a Magma Stone – Both of these accessories now give temporary Lava Immunity, instead of adding Hellfire to attacks

Hellfire Treads (Rework) – Is no longer crafted by combining Flame Waker and Lava Waders. Instead, is crafted from Flame Waker and Spectre Boots – Loses its Lava Wading benefits, but now has Hermes Running and Rocket Booting – Generates fire sparks on running and uses the classic flame Rocket Boot trail

Lava Waders – Can now be crafted with a Molten Skull Rose and Water Walking Boots/Obsidian Water Walking Boots

Fairy Bell (Buff) – Fairy Light Pet movement speed increased from 3.5 to 6

Turtle Mount (Buff) – Speed increased by 150% – Swim Speed increased by 66% – Jump Height increased by 20% – Now gives water breathing when underwater

Gelatinous Pillion (Nerf) – Horizontal flight speed reduced by roughly 30% – Walking speed reduced by roughly 10%

All Minecarts (Buff) – Minecarts now hit harder in higher difficulties, deal more knockback, and are generally better at hitting enemies without letting the player be hurt when colliding with enemies

Mech Cart (Rework) – Now has the same speed and stats as other minecarts, and does not generate lasers (This will be addressed by a new item, the Minecart Upgrade Kit)

Drill Mount (Buff) – Can now break walls right right click – Dig speed is roughly 3x faster

Spectre Pickaxe (Buff) – Mining speed reduced from 10 to 8 (faster mining)

Drills (Buff) – All drills that already had no knockback now have a token amount of knockback to obtain better modifiers

The Grand Design (Buff) – Now takes the Mechanical Ruler in its recipe instead of the Ruler. This also means that having the Grand Design in the inventory enables the Laser Grid UI option.

Magic Conch and Demon Conch (Buff) – Their animation sequence is now as fast as Magic Mirror, instead of being slower

Snowball Launcher (Buff) – No longer requires ammo – Firing cooldown reduced from 10 to 7 frames – Better projectile range and arc

Star in a Bottle (Buff) – Star in a Bottle’s mana regeneration bonus increased from 1 mana per second to 5 mana per second. Additionally, it now also reduces the cooldown before mana begins regenerating after using magic weapons slightly.

Class Buff Stations (Buff) – Sharpening Station, Crystal Ball, Ammo Box, and Bewitching Table now last until death/being canceled or quitting out, rather than having a time limit

Ammo Box – Is now sold by the Arms Dealer in Hardmode. Is no longer sold by the Traveling Merchant. – Cost reduced from 15 Gold to 10 Gold to match other buff stations

These changes are listed in their respective weapons if they have a changelog entry, but included here also for visibility.
