Exclusive to: Shipwrecked.
The Howling Conch is a craftable Item introduced in the Shipwrecked DLC. It is found in the Volcanic Tab and requires 4 Obsidian, 1 Purple Gem and 1 Magic Seal to craft. Like all items in the Volcanic Tab, it cannot be prototyped and the player must be near an Obsidian Workbench or wearing a Brain of Thought to craft it.
Using the Howling Conch will start Strong Winds lasting for about half a Day. When taken to a base game world or Reign of Giants world with the Seaworthy, the conch will create Rain instead of Strong Winds.
- The Sail Stick can be equipped after blowing the Howling Conch for half a day of boosted sailing speed, but a Walking Cane still provides a greater speed boost when sailing with the wind.
- Using the Howling Conch while its effects are still active may initiate a hurricane outside of Hurricane Season with the associated rain and lightning. This is useful for WX-78 players in need of Overchage or Walani players who want more waves to ride during Dry Season.
- The crafting menu description and Woodie's quote reference the song "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by Canadian musician Gordon Lightfoot.
