We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Living Tree

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
A Living Tree with "roots" that form a tunnel downwards, as well as a room with treasure.

Living Trees are large tree-shaped structures generated at world creation. Unlike regular Trees, Living Trees are constructed from foreground Living Wood and Leaf blocks, rather than being background objects that characters can pass through.

Living Trees are very large, and often (but not always) contain an internal tunnel structure that players can explore. This tunnel leads down to a room containing Living Tree-themed furniture and a Living Wood Chest, all of which players can loot. The Chest can contain either a Living Wood Wand (for placing Living Wood), a Leaf Wand (for placing Leaf blocks), or a Living Loom (for crafting Living Wood furniture). All of them can be found at once, however.

Mobile only.png Living Wood Trees will generate with torches inside their roots in the Mobile version, making exploration easier.

Desktop only.png Living Mahogany Trees are found in the Underground Jungle. They always contain a tunnel with an Ivy Chest at their bottom. The Chest contains Jungle Shrine items.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When mined (with a Pickaxe or Drill), Living Wood turns into plain Wood, and Leaf blocks are destroyed.
  • Neither Living Wood nor Leaf blocks can become corrupted, crimsoned, or hallowed.
  • In small worlds, some Living Trees extend high enough for Harpies to spawn.
  • In the Mobile only.pngMobile version a Band of Starpower and/or a Band of Regeneration can appear in the chest.
  • If you cannot find a meteorite that has landed, it is possible that it landed on the tree. This phenomenon is more common in smaller worlds.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Rooms in Living Trees can be used for NPC housing by simply adding a light source. These rooms may also serve as safe-houses for players to seek refuge in during dangerous Events.
  • During Hardmode, Living Trees act as natural barriers against the Corruption, Crimson, & Hallowed biomes' increased rate of spreading, provided that the area beneath the tree is cleared.
