We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Bookcases are crafting stations used for the creation of three Hardmode Magic Weapons: Crystal Storm, Cursed Flames and Golden Shower. Until Hardmode it can be used as decorative Furniture, and fulfills a House's Flat Surface Item requirement. It can be crafted using twenty Wood and ten Books gathered from the Dungeon. A Bottle (or similar) can be placed on it and used as a Placed Bottle for crafting Potions.

There are currently 26 craftable Bookcases, and 6 versions looted from the environment: one from the Underworld, four from the Dungeon, and one from the Pirate Invasion. They are all functionally identical, differing only in their visuals.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Bookcase actually shows 13 books stored, similiar to how a placed book shows 2-3 books.
  • Although it is not required to make it, the Water Bolt's unique sprite is visible in most bookcases (a blue book with white/brown band).
  • The Boreal Wood Bookcase, the Slime Bookcase and the Crystal Bookcase are the only three to have horizontally placed books, being the only display of books that way in the game.
