Fallen Stars are items that randomly fall from the sky at night and disappear at dawn (4:30 AM). Three of them are used to craft a Mana Crystal, which permanently increases a player's Mana capacity by 20 points. They are also used in a variety of crafting recipes, and as ammunition for the Star Cannon. Fallen Stars can be stored in ammo slots.

For each game tick (1/60 of a real-world second), the chance of a Fallen Star is 2/1,600 in small worlds, 3/1,600 in medium worlds, and 4/1,600 in large worlds. The maximum number of Fallen Stars per night is approximately 40.5 in a small world, 60.75 in a medium world, and 81 in a large world.

Fallen Stars emit light while on the ground, making them easy to spot at night. They cannot be placed by the player as permanent light sources, but can be combined with a bottle to craft the Star in a Bottle. They will disappear if dropped by a player during the day, but can remain in a player's inventory indefinitely.

If a Fallen Star hits an enemy on its way down (a rare occurrence), it deals 1,000 damage. They do not damage players.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Water Candles, full moons, and lateral map position have no effect on the frequency of Fallen Stars. Their appearance is at a fixed rate at all hours of every night.
  • If a stack of Fallen stars is sold and then rebought by holding right click, it will duplicate 1 star and give a stack of 101 stars. This can be done multiple times, giving the chance to farm money from it. As Fallen Stars are only 1 silver it is a very slow method of getting money.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike most items collected as drops, Fallen Stars fall all over the World at night, even in areas far from the player. Traveling a far distance a few minutes prior to dawn will allow the player to collect the Fallen Stars, easily netting a large supply.
  • A simple method for harvesting Fallen Stars is to construct long straight sections of ground to run along at night. A skybridge also works well, though sky bridges have the disadvantage of catching meteorites and reducing the amount of Meteorite ore the player can collect.
  • To pass Fallen Stars to a friend at day time, transfer it using a chest, since throwing it directly (no matter what) will make it vanish during the day.
  • If the player inventory is full, Fallen Star can be moved to Ammo slot for one extra space, if one ammo slot is empty.
  • If you "give" a Fallen Star to the Guide during the day to see what items can be made with it, then walk away without putting it back in your inventory, it will be considered dropped and vanish. To avoid this, only give him one of a stack or turn Autopause on so that you can't walk away.
  • Fallen Stars will hit Floating Islands if the Island is in the path of the Star, so if there is an area where Fallen Stars never seem to fall or rarely do, there is a possibility that a Floating Island is above that area.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
