This article is about the type of mushroom that grows in forests. For the class of plants "Mushrooms", see Mushrooms. For the biome, see Mushroom biome.

A Mushroom is a crafting material and healing item that spawns randomly on grass located on the surface, generally in the Forest. It can be cut with any tool or weapon in order to retrieve the item.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Using a Mushroom as a healing item is rather inefficient as it can be crafted into two Lesser Healing Potions which restore 50 health each.

Farming[edit | edit source]

Main article: Guide:Gardening#Normal Mushrooms

Desktop VersionConsole Version Mushrooms have a high sell value for the early game (40 Mushrooms sell for 1 Gold Coin), plus they are very common and can be farmed.

Mushrooms grow on any free grass tiles in the surface layer, meaning they can be easily farmed by placing grass in strips. The grass can be grown by connecting dirt to existing grass, by planting Grass Seeds, or by using the Staff of Regrowth. Only one tile of vertical clearance is required, so dirt strips can be placed close together in groups of three (more than that and you may not be able to harvest them), one tile apart vertically. Mushrooms will not grow if there is a wall behind them, so make sure the sky is visible behind the dirt strips. They do not require water to grow, and can spawn while on-screen. Such a farm also needs regular clearing – Mushrooms will not replace grass, but require empty tiles to grow.

With the Dart Trap mechanism, farms can be automated to some degree. The Dart Trap(s) can be linked to a Pressure Plate at the farm's entrance or to a Timer. A launched dart will cut all grass and Mushrooms that it comes into contact with, allowing the player to simply run across the farm and pick up the dropped Mushrooms without a single swing of their sword.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This mushroom may resemble the Lactarius deliciosus. However, that mushroom's dots are significantly less apparent.
  • It is the weakest healing item that only heals in the game, restoring only 15 health with each Mushroom.
    • While Life Fruit technically have the lowest healing, healing 5 health per use, they also increase maximum health by 5.
