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.

The Ruler is an accessory purchased from the Goblin Tinkerer for 1 Gold Coin. It aides intricate construction, as less trial and error is involved in judging distances, symmetry, and achieving a desired block layout.

  • Desktop only.png Displays a line or L-shaped overlay showing x and y distance from the player to the mouse.
  • Console only.png Creates a semi-transparent grid over the screen. Operates identically to the Desktop only.png Mechanical Ruler.
  • Mobile only.png / 3DS logo.svg Currently unobtainable.

The Ruler's effect is purely visual and only affects the player who has it equipped.
