Bookcases are crafting stations used for the creation of three Hardmode Magic Weapons: Crystal Storm, Cursed Flames and Golden Shower. Until Hardmode it can be used as decorative Furniture, and fulfills a House's Flat Surface Item requirement. It can be crafted using twenty Wood and ten Books gathered from the Dungeon. A Bottle (or similar) can be placed on it and used as a Placed Bottle for crafting Potions.

There are currently 26 craftable Bookcases, and 6 versions looted from the environment: one from the Underworld, four from the Dungeon, and one from the Pirate Invasion. They are all functionally identical, differing only in their visuals.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Bookcase actually shows 13 books stored, similiar to how a placed book shows 2-3 books.
  • Although it is not required to make it, the Water Bolt's unique sprite is visible in most bookcases (a blue book with white/brown band).
  • The Boreal Wood Bookcase and the Slime Bookcase are the only two to have horizontally placed books, being the only display of books that way in the game.
