Notes[edit | edit source]
- Depth is measured at the level of the character's feet.
- Depth is displayed as "level" when standing exactly at surface level.
- The surface level has an absolute position and is consistent across the entire world.
- The Depth Meter is obtainable and equippable but does not actually do anything.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- The Depth Meter is useful for finding biomes that are generated at specific elevation ranges, such as Floating Islands, the Underground Jungle, and the Underworld.
- The Depth Meter can be used to avoid spawning Dungeon Guardians by staying above the surface level.
