  • Glowstick

The Glowstick is a light source that can be held or be tossed a fair distance, and works underwater, but cannot be placed on a wall or floor like the Torch can (though the Sticky Glowstick will stick to surfaces they are thrown against). Glowsticks will emit light for a lengthy period of time after being thrown, and have a 33.33*1/3 (33.33%) chance to be recoverable after 5 minutes. Glowsticks can be purchased from the Merchant for 10*10 each during the Night or from the Skeleton Merchant for 10*10 during the day, if there was no full Moon. Glowsticks are also dropped by all Jellyfish, and can be found commonly in Pots and Chests.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Glowsticks are thrown by being used (that is, left clicking when the glowstick is selected). They are not thrown by pressing the T key; trying to do that will drop the entire stack, and the stack will only travel a few tiles away from the player.
  • After being thrown, Glowsticks will disappear if you exit the world.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Glowstick can be used as a moving light source while mining directly downward, as it will continue to drop along with the player when the blocks underneath it are mined away.
  • Glowsticks, unlike torches, can be thrown to light an area from a distance.
  • Just like boomerangs, a Glowstick can pass through a 1 block thick wall if thrown at the right angle.
  • Since they work underwater, they can be a good, cheap substitute to torches.
