Light Pet

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Light Pets are summoned secondary characters that float alongside players to provide a traveling light source. They incur no mana nor any other cost, and remain indefinitely until the player cancels the buff, summons a replacement light pet or dies. Only one light pet can be present at once. Light Pets have their own dedicated inventory slot in the player's equipment section in the Desktop Version PC version, along with a slot for dyes.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Desktop Version Desktop-Only Content: This section's information applies only to the desktop version of Terraria.
  • Although it is possible to change the color of the pet itself using dyes, the color of the light they produce will stay the same.
  • When equipped to the Light Pet slot, pets can be toggled on and off using the small eye icon in the top right corner of the item slot.
  • If a Light Pet is equipped in its respective slot, it will automatically respawn if the player dies, unless the slot is toggled off.
  • The Baby Truffle and Cursed Sapling can give off light, although they are not considered Light Pets.
