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.

The Dirt Rod is a unique tool that is used solely to move Dirt Blocks around in the player's world, as the tooltip suggests. Unlike the use of ordinary mining tools and block placement, the Dirt Rod has essentially unlimited range, limited only by the game's screen size. The Dirt Rod can be purchased from the Dryad for 5 Gold CoinDesktop only.png, or 20 Gold CoinConsole only.pngMobile only.png3DS logo.svg.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Triggering traps: The Dirt Rod allows you to trigger a trap from long range by removing a dirt block, instead of having to mine the blocks from close range.
  • Cavern exploration: Players can wall themselves in from danger and rearrange the area. This may include walling off passages and bridging Lava pools.
  • Fluid systems: Open or seal 'pipes' for Obsidian production.
  • It loses some of its usefulness once the Mechanic is found, as Mechanisms generally offer a more sophisticated method of constructing traps and fluid systems.
