The Wooden Bucket is a Pre-Hardmode accessory. Besides providing 3 defense, it also allows the wearer to execute a ground-pound attack by double-tapping the down key. During this, the player's velocity quickly increases beyond the normal maximum falling velocity. The damage of the attack depends on the current falling speed and ranges from 25 to 200. The damage is affected by the player's melee damage bonus.
The Wooden Bucket has a 33% chance to drop from Kisume.
