Main article: Accessories

Informational accessories are accessories that display unique information when held in the non-vanity slots of an inventory. There are currently no informational accessories in the 3DS version 3DS version, except the Depth Meter, which is non-functional.

Most of the informational accessories are components of either the Cell PhoneDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions or The Grand DesignDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions. These completed items are still "informational items", but they can no longer be slotted as accessories. Informational items will still display the same information from the main inventory as their respective accessory components, the PDADesktop, Console, and Mobile versions and Mechanical LensDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This content is transcluded from Informational Accessories/note.Desktop, Console, and Mobile versions Unlike most accessories, informational accessories do not need to be equipped in an accessory slot. They may be carried in the player's inventory without loss of functionality, unless equipped to a social slot. Additionally, the info they provide 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.
  • The only accessories that are not components in other recipes are the Mechanical RulerDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions and low-/mid-tier watches (as a Gold/Platinum Watch is required for the GPS, and in turn Cell PhoneDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions).
  • All of these accessories can be obtained before Hardmode, but completing the Cell Phone tree will require a great deal of exploration (and Angler quests).
  • On the Desktop version Desktop version and Mobile version Mobile version, the Ruler does not function as an informational accessory.
