Tesla Potion's electric aura

The Tesla Potion is a craftable Pre-Hardmode buff potion. Upon consumption, it grants the player the Tesla's Electricity buff which spawns an electric aura around the player, dealing 15 typeless damage, inflicting the Electrified debuff as well as the Galvanic Corrosion debuff which freezes enemies, with a lesser effect on bosses. Critters and other passive NPCs are unaffected.

  • Just like the Inferno Potion, the Tesla Potion's aura is able to slow/destroy destructible projectiles, such as Chaos Balls and Detonating Bubbles.
  • While the aura can't slow down bosses, it is able to slow down minions that bosses summon, making them much more manageable.


  • Galvanic corrosion is an electrochemical process in which metal corrodes when in electrical contact with another metal.
