The Shellphone is a handy tool added in Terraria’s 1.4.4 update. It combines the functionality of the cell phone, the magic conch and the demon conch in one convenient package. Considering all the helpful information and abilities these items offer, it’s easy for the avid Terraria adventurer to want to get their hands on the updated version.
However, it’s not easy to get as one might expect from such a handy tool. How to get one in Terraria.
Craft a Shellphone in Terraria
The short version of the strategy for getting a Shellphone is deceptively simple. All you need is a cell phone, a magic conch, a demon conch and a tinker’s workshop. If you’ve been playing Terraria for a while, you might even have all of these already. If not, well, that’s the hard part.
The Tinkerer’s Workshop can be purchased from the Goblin Tinkerer for 10 gold coins, which is about as easy as it gets. The two shells are rare, random drops, so you’ll have to hope the RNG is on your side. The Magic Shell can be found in Mirage and Oasis Crates (12.5% drop chance) or in Sandstone Chests (14.39% drop chance). The Demon Shell, on the other hand, is a rare item that can be found while fishing in Lava.

The cell phone is really the most difficult element to find. Because it’s already such a handy item, combining so many different tool functions into one handset, you must first find or craft all of its component parts before you can even think of building a Shellphone. In theory, the cell phone can be made by combining a magic mirror or ice mirror with a PDA, but in reality it requires 13 original components – compass, depth gauge, DPS meter, fisherman’s pocket guide, gold or platinum watch, life-form analyzer, weather radio, metal detector , Radar, Sextant, Stopwatch, Tally Counter, and the Magic/Ice Mirror – and defeat Skeletron first.
Once you’ve completed this gargantuan task, you’re just one step away from your precious Shellphone. Just combine all three items in your tinker workshop and voila.
What does the Shellphone do in Terraria?
As you might expect from the combination of the Cellphone, Magic Shell, and Demon Shell, the Shellphone offers the functionality of all three items in one place. Like its component parts, the Shellphone is more of a tool than an accessory and can display a wealth of information including catch performance, weather, moon phase, altitude, distance from the center of the world, time, nearest valuable environmental item, movement speed, current DPS, total kills of the last enemy attacked, nearby rare creatures, and total number of nearby enemies. In addition, it can teleport the player to one of four locations – home, spawn point, the ocean, or the underworld. To change the teleport destination, simply right-click on the object.
