|Debuff tooltip||Using the Rod of Discord will take life|
|Internal Item ID: 1326|
Using the Rod costs no mana or ammunition, however each use inflicts the Chaos State debuff on the player, which causes the player to lose health if they use the Rod rapidly. Chaos State lasts for 8 ( 6) seconds after each use, and depletes 1/6th ( 1/7th) of the player's maximum health if the Rod is used again during that period.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- The target location must be at least 3 blocks high and 2 blocks wide. Clicking will always place the player's feet at the mouse position. Thus, in order to teleport into a 3 block-high opening, the player must aim the mouse at the floor. Unsuccessful teleports play the same sound, but do not inflict the debuff.
- The Curse debuff will prevent use of the Rod of Discord.
- Teleporting will cancel fall damage.
- It will not reset Wing flight time.
- Despite it causing no damage to enemies, it can be placed on a Weapon Rack.
- In the Mobile version, when you die from Chaos State the death messages are strange and varying.
- This item is invaluable for dodging the high-damage attacks of bosses.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Attempting to teleport into the Jungle Temple before Plantera is defeated will not work. It will work after Plantera is defeated, even allowing the player into a locked Jungle Temple without giving up a Temple Key.
- Setting your resolution to maximum will allow you to see farther, so you can teleport farther distances.
- Since using this item is one of the few ways to hurt yourself at any given time, it can be used with the Shrimpy Truffle to activate the speed boost.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Dying from teleporting during Chaos State will display unique death messages:
- "<Player Name>'s legs appeared where his/her head should be"
- "<Player Name> didn't materialize"
