The Garden Gnome is a small statue formed when a Gnome touches sunlight. A placed Garden Gnome positively influences the player's Luck stat by 0.2, in a range similar to a Campfire buff. Additional Garden Gnomes do not increase luck further.

Garden Gnomes have five separate sprites when placed:

  • Facing a direction with their arms akimbo.
  • Facing a direction while slouching.
  • Facing a direction with their arms on their side.
  • Mooning their bottom toward the screen.
  • Facing the screen.

Conditions[edit | edit source]

Various conditions. A Garden Gnome will form under conditions 1 and 2, but not under conditions 3, 4, 5, or 6.

"Sunlight" is defined by the following conditions:

  • During the day (4:30AM to 7:30PM).
  • No background wall is present, including glass or natural walls.

Solid blocks do not need to be absent above the Gnome to form a Garden Gnome. Garden Gnomes will not form under water.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • As they are relatively easy to obtain, it can be advantageous to place them wherever Luck comes into play, eg. boss arenas and farming locations.
  • The way the gnome faces when it is in profile depends on the tile it is placed on; not the direction the player is facing.
