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. Howling Conches can not be prototyped , so crafting them requires being near an Obsidian Workbench or wearing a Brain of Thought.

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.
