Using the Breathing Reed to restore oxygen, and as a weapon.

The Breathing Reed is an item which aids underwater travel. It can be found in Water Chests and Ocean Crates. On the Desktop version Desktop version and Mobile version Mobile version, it is also a melee weapon.

For the Breathing Reed to take effect, it must be held, i.e. selected in the hotbar or being attached to the cursor. When held, the reed appears above the player and the rate at which their breath meter depletes as well as the rate at which they lose health while drowning is halved. The reed's tip does not need to be above the surface of the water for this to take effect. Additionally, the breath meter refills as soon as the tip of the reed is outside of water, but not within a block.

Desktop and Mobile versions Its best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Holding the Breathing Reed prolongs the underwater breath to 46.67 seconds or, if paired with diving equipment, to 3 minutes and 6.67 seconds. In addition, the rate at which health is lost while drowning is reduced to 1/2 or 1/8, respectively.
  • Though the Breathing Reed can have modifiers that change its size, it does not effect its functionality as a tool.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop Turned into a melee weapon. Still retains its previous functionality, however.
