The Rod of Discord is a Hardmode tool that instantly teleports the player to the mouse cursor. Using the Rod costs no mana, however it inflicts Chaos State, an 8-second debuff, on the player: Using the Rod again while the debuff is active will remove 1/6th of the player's maximum health. The Rod of Discord has a 1/500 (0.2%) chance to drop from Chaos Elementals.

Notes[edit]

  • 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.
  • 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 only.pngMobile version, the Rod of Discord doesn't work properly. The player will die after teleporting, with strange and varying death messages.

Tips[edit]

  • 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.
  • Using the Rod of Discord while using the "zoom" feature of a Sniper Rifle or Rifle Scope allows a player to teleport even further. This can only be achieved by switching to the Rod of Discord while the screen is still zoomed out in a direction.
  • Teleporting behind the Wall of Flesh will instantly force you back in front of it.

Trivia[edit]

  • 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"
  • "Discord" means a lack of order or agreement.
