Notes[edit | edit source]

  • This content is transcluded from Informational Accessories/note.Desktop VersionConsole Version 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. 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.
  • Most of the informational accessories (excepting only The Mechanical Ruler and low-/mid-tier watches) are components of either the Cell Phone or The Grand Design. These completed items are still "informational items", but they can no longer be slotted as accessories. From the main inventory, they will still display the same information as the PDA and Mechanical Lens, respectively.
  • 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).
