Terraria – Where to find every Whip

By Lauren Aitken, Monday, 18 May 2020 16:20 GMT

The Journey’s End update for Terraria added Whips to the Summoner class and there’s a bunch of them to find and try out.

So far, we’ve found a total of eight Whips that are up for grabs in Terraria. Some can be purchased from vendors, while others are drops in specific locations and some whips can even be crafted.

They deal an impressive amount of damage, with the likes of the Morning Star inflicting 180 damage upon your foes. Some Whips can only be found by playing on Hardmode which activates after you beat the Wall of Flesh boss.

Terraria – Where to find all of the Whips

Some of these Whips can only be found in certain conditions, so check out our table before you set out to find them to avoid unnecessary grinding.

Each Whip comes with a certain amount of Knockback which will repel enemies in the opposite direction. Morning Star has the biggest Knockback range, which you’d expect from such a powerful weapon. It’s worth noting that all enemies hit with a Whip will be targeted by minions.

Most of the Whips have the same Use Time of around 30, which translates to about 30 seconds of cooldown at a time. This is the average Use Time for weapons in Terraria, except for Morning Star which has a rather slow Use Time of 45.
