The Ruler is an autoswinging shortsword on Desktop version Desktop version. On pre-1.4 versions of Terraria (Console VersionOld-gen console versionMobile Version) it is an informational accessory which creates measuring lines for counting blocks while building. It is purchased from the Goblin Tinkerer for 1000*10 Desktop Version / 10000*1 Console VersionOld-gen console versionMobile Version.

In Desktop versions prior to 1.4, the ruler was necessary to display a grid framework that aids with the precise placement of blocks. This effect is now always available and can be toggled on or off with the third of the three small buttons in the upper left of the pause menu.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
