Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This content is transcluded from Informational Accessories/note.Desktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version Unlike most accessories, informational accessories such as the GPS do not need to be equipped in an accessory slot. The GPS may be carried in the player's inventory without loss of functionality, unless equipped to a social slot. 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.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • If you have access to these crafting materials and you are not planning on selling it, make the GPS so that it doesn't take up as much space in your inventory/accessory slots.
  • Selling the GPS is more efficient than selling its separate parts (2000*20 Silver Coin.png for the Gold Watch or 3000*30 Silver Coin.png for the Platinum Watch, 2500*25 Silver Coin.png for the Depth Meter, and 2500*25 Silver Coin.png for the Compass).
    • However, since it will probably be necessary for the player to craft the watch themselves, they should consider the cost of its components instead. In the worst case, if the world has platinum and the player does not have any spare bars, they will need 40 Platinum Ore to craft the watch, which sell for 18000*1 Gold Coin.png 80 Silver Coin.png on their own, making a measly 7000*70 Silver Coin.png of profit, which can even be negated if the two other accessories have particularly good modifiers.
