Example of placed Living Fire Blocks

Living Fire Blocks are animated background furniture blocks that, when placed, resemble small animated flames and emit faint orange light. They deal no damage on contact and can be freed with any pickaxe or drill. Living Fire Blocks have a 1/50 (2%) chance of being dropped by any enemy killed in the Underworld during Hardmode, and drop in stacks of 20–50 at a time.

While Living Fire Blocks can be placed in a manner similar to traditional, foreground blocks, they are actually in the background, similar to furniture, allowing the player to walk directly through them. They can attach to each other horizontally as well as vertically, but other traditional, foreground block types will not attach to them.

There are five color variations of the base Living Fire Block, all of which are crafted from it. They are functionally identical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Like Fireblossoms and Obsidian, they are not destroyed when dropped into lava, despite having a rarity of Rarity level: 0.
  • They will not count as valid light sources or background walls for houses.
  • Their placement behavior is similar to Wooden Beams, except that Wooden Beams can only attach to each other vertically, while Living Fire Blocks can form horizontal arrangements as well. Also, other block types and furniture can be placed on Wooden Beams, but not on Living Fire Blocks, with the exception of platforms. Torches will also not attach to Living Fire Blocks.
  • Living Fire Blocks can be placed in areas submerged by lava.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Living Fire Blocks could be considered more useful than torches because, besides being easy to farm, they can be placed anywhere and are not displaced by liquids.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Moon Leech Clot and the Living Ultrabright Fire Block item sprites are identical.
  • Living Ichor Block does not contain the word "Fire", unlike all the others.
  • The Living Demon Fire Block is tied with Shroomite Plating for having the longest crafting tree of a block.
