Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Water Bolt looks like a Book, and is hidden among those on the shelves of the Dungeon. It has a distinct sprite that no ordinary books have, and some special behavior. Once freed from its disguise, it acts like other weapon items, not like a placeable block.
  • 285 books are necessary to craft all of the pianos and bookcases.
