Consumable

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A Consumable is an item that is removed from a player's inventory upon direct use. For items that are consumed from use of another item, see Ammunition. Some consumable items, like thrown weapons, may be recoverable as dropped items afterward in certain situations.

Note: This term is distinct from Category:Consumable items, which is a Terraria Wiki category encompassing all blocks and furniture that can leave the player's inventory via placement, but which are not necessarily used and destroyed.
