The Vortex Cloak is a wearable Armor and Inventory extension, exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. In order to craft it, the player must obtain a Blueprint from the Ancient Herald or found in treasure chests on X marks the spot in Shipwrecked. It requires 5 Dark Tatters and a Night Armor to craft.

The Vortex Cloak has 2 more slots than a Backpack and has 450 durability, blocks all incoming damage from creatures other than Shadow Creatures and the Ancient Herald. Each hit removes Sanity from the player equal to 20% of the absorbed damage. The Vortex Cloak does not break when it reaches 0% durability, but will not continue absorbing damage and will simply function as a Backpack. The Vortex Cloak prevents Poisoning from physical attacks and grants stun immunity like the Thulecite Crown's force field while it has greater than 0% durability.

The Vortex Cloak can be repaired by using Nightmare Fuel or Dark Tatters on it. Each Nightmare Fuel used restores the Vortex Cloak's durability by 10% (or 45 HP), and each Dark Tatters used restores durability by 100% (or 450 HP).

  • Unlike other armors, if the Vortex Cloak is equipped while another hat is already worn (Making it the primary armor as it was equipped last), the Vortex Cloak will continue to remain the primary armor even if the hat is unequipped and re-equipped, or if it is swapped out for another. If one wishes to use the Vortex Cloak as secondary armor (for instance, to reduce durability/sanity loss by equipping a Football Helmet to cover most of the damage), one must not be wearing a hat when it is first equipped.
  • Large quantities of Nightmare Fuel can be acquired for repairing a Vortex Cloak by sacrificing items to the End's Well and killing the Shadow Creatures that spawn.
  • If the player is riding a Beefalo while wearing a Vortex Cloak above 0% durability, the Beefalo will gain the effects of the stun immunity but will still receive damage as normal.
  • The Vortex Cloak will prevent the Masked Pig from knocking Oincs from the player's inventory.
