Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This content is transcluded from Informational Accessories/note.Desktop VersionConsole Version Unlike most accessories, Informational Accessories such as the Depth Meter do not need to be equipped in an accessory slot. The Depth Meter may be carried in the player's inventory, without loss of functionality. Additionally, the info it provides will be shared with nearby players of the same team in multiplayer. Keep in mind Modifiers will no longer apply to the player when not equipped, however.
  • Depth is measured at the level of the player's feet.
  • The Depth Meter will not work if equipped in a vanity slot.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Depth Meter is useful for finding biomes that are generated at specific elevation ranges, such as Floating Islands, the Underground Jungle, and the Underworld. It also helps with locating the first three tiers of Hardmode ores.
  • The Depth Meter can be used to avoid spawning Dungeon Guardians by staying above 0 depth.
  • Old-gen console version The Depth Meter can only be crafted with Copper, Silver, and Gold, so it might be inevitable to create another world. However, if the world count is full, you can jump through worlds.
