The Enchanted Sundial skipping a day. Note the clouds and sun speeding across the top of the screen.

The Enchanted Sundial is a Hardmode furniture item that can be placed. Pressing the Open / Activate button on it will advance time to sunrise (4:30 AM) the following day. It has a 7-day cooldown period, so once used, it will not be useable again until 7 in-game days (2 hours and 48 minutes in real time) have passed normally. On the Desktop version Desktop version and Mobile version Mobile version, the Enchanted Sundial is obtained from fished Pearlwood (0.5*1/200 (0.5%) chance), Mythril, (1.67*1/60 (1.67%) chance), and Titanium Crates (5*1/20 (5%) chance), while on the Console version Console version, it is obtained from Wooden (0.5*1/200 (0.5%) chance), Iron (1.67*1/60 (1.67%) chance), and Golden Crates (5*1/20 (5%) chance) during Hardmode.

The Enchanted Sundial does not turn the time to the next day immediately. It instead "fast-forwards" time, causing it to pass more quickly than usual.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Its 7-day cooldown is shared between all Enchanted Sundials in the current world, so a second Sundial cannot be used to circumvent it.
  • The chances of invasions and other events are calculated as if the time actually passed.
  • In multiplayer, the Sundial will only count a cooldown day passing if there are players online when the in-game day changes.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Enchanted Sundial shares its color palette and architectural theme with much of the Skyware furniture set, though there is no direct correlation between the two.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.4.0.4: Fixed an issue where Enchanted Sundial would cause heavy FPS drops.
  • Desktop 1.4.0.3: Fixed a bug where speeding time up with an Enchanted Sundial would make some unusual visual effects.
