Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It loses some of its usefulness when you obtain the Shadow Orb or a Mining Helmet, as the materials needed to make the potion could be used for more useful potions. However, unlike the Shadow Orb, the light source comes from the player, which will not fall behind, and unlike the Mining Helmet, you can wear a helmet with more defense. The light source emitted is also much brighter and the range further than the other two, making it slightly more useful.
  • Even though it is a consumable potion, everything used to make it is renewable. Dayblooms are common and easily farmed in pots, and making a glowing mushroom farm somewhere in or near your home base is worthwhile anyway. Sand can be infinitely generated if a sandgun is used in conjunction with Necro armor, the Hallowed Helmet or any other armor that reduces ammo consumption.
