|| Shows depth.
The Depth Meter is an accessory that, when equipped, displays your character's current elevation relative to the surface level. Elevation is measured in feet, with one tile equalling two feet. It is a rare drop from Cave Bats.
In the console version, the Depth Meter functions slightly differently; elevation is measured in meters, with two tiles equaling one meter. In addition, it is obtained differently, being crafted instead of dropped.

- The elevation is measured from the level of your character's feet.
- The elevation display will read "level" if you are standing exactly on the surface level.
