The Oasis is a naturally spawning mini biome that may be found on the Surface layer of the Desert biome. They consist of a sizable body of water, surrounded by multiple palm trees, usually in the middle of the desert biome. The area around the oasis itself will include shrubbery such as mini cacti, ferns, and flowers. Inside the lake itself can grow Cattail plants and usually has multiple dragonflies flying around and above the surface of the water.
As a mini biome, the Oasis is not considered to be a separate biome from Desert as far as most game mechanics are concerned: The Oasis counts as a Desert in terms of an NPC's preferred biome, the Oasis will spawn desert biome creatures and enemies, and fishing in an Oasis will yield the same results as fishing in a Desert (see below). Thus, it is possible to create an artificial Oasis by placing water in the surface layer of a Desert biome.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Animal skulls may spawn in the Oasis biome as a type of background object (they will not respawn once destroyed).
- Several Oasis biomes may spawn in a single world: up to 2-3 in Small worlds, 3-4 in Medium worlds, and 4-5 in Large worlds. However, it is also possible that none will spawn.
- An Oasis may generate on top of any kind of Desert biome, including those with the Underground Desert biome underneath. Although unusual, multiple Oasis biomes can generate in the same Desert.
- In the case of the Desert above the Underground Desert, other structures may generate instead of an Oasis. See Underground Desert § Surface Desert for more information.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Fishing in the Oasis biome will sometimes drop Oysters, which once opened will produce a Shucked Oyster, which gives the player the Well Fed buff for 10 minutes. Oysters will also rarely give Pearls, which are the main materials for making various Luck Potions.
- A very useful item gained from fishing up Oasis Crates is the Magic Conch, which allows the player to teleport to the Ocean biome in similar fashion to the Magic Mirror.
