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.

Every placed Monolith in their on and off state.

Monoliths are Hardmode, post-Lunatic Cultist mechanisms that change the background to their respective Celestial Tower's background when active. They can be activated via right-click, or via wire. There are four different Monoliths, all of which are crafted from the Ancient Manipulator, for 15 Celestial Fragments. Monoliths have a range of 70 blocks.

Monoliths do not stack their effects. Only the one placed in the spot furthest to the bottom right will affect a given area. They provide large amounts of light in the area they're activated in, which can be useful for situations in events like the Solar Eclipse.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The effects of the Monoliths can cause some framerate issues.
  • The far right of the screen while a monolith is activated sometimes continues to display the original background.
  • The Monoliths will not spawn any enemies from that specific Tower.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If a Monolith is left active when exiting a world, the background will remain when selecting a character and world for single player. Exiting the game returns the background to normal.
  • The Monoliths appear to be miniature versions of the Celestial Pillars.
  • When used during a Blood Moon it will override the red tint.

History[edit | edit source]

  • 1.3.5: Fixed Vortex Monolith not selling for as much as it should.
  • 1.3.0.1: Introduced.
