The Shadow Potion is a craftable Pre-Hardmode buff potion that is a direct upgrade to the Invisibility Potion. Upon consumption it grants the Shadow buff, which turns the player invisible and reduces aggro while not attacking, and boosts stealth regeneration by 10% at all times. The player will also become immune to the Invisibility buff. When holding and using a certain type of rogue weapon, the player will gain certain buffs and spawn certain projectiles. The effects are listed below:

Type Stat Buff Projectile
Boomerangs Increased rogue damage by 10% n/a Spectre Soul
Javelins Increased armor penetration by 5 Penumbra SoulPenumbra Soul
Bombs Increased rogue velocity by 10% Blackhole.gif Black Hole
Spiky Balls Increased rogue critical strike chance by 10% Cosmic ScytheCosmic Scythe
Daggers Increased stealth regeneration by 8% Dark Shard (projectile)Dark Shard

For stealth strikes, the additional projectiles only trigger for the first five enemies hit.
