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. The Enchanted Sundial is obtained from fished Pearlwood or Wooden (1/200 or 0.5% chance each), Mythril or Iron, (1/60 or 1.67% chance each), and Titanium or Golden (1/20 or 5% chance each) Crates.

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.
