Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Star Cloak is effective even when deep underground, as the stars will pass through blocks until they are near or past the height of the point where the player took damage. After that point, any foreground block will stop them.
  • The effect of the Star Cloak is similar to that of the Starfury, but the stars that fall are faster, cause double the damage, and the focal point is the player rather than the cursor.
    • Furthermore, unlike the Starfury's effect, the stars emit light while insubstantially passing through blocks. This lighting effect is much more pronounced than that of the light particles that fall after the stars hit the ground and can be exploited by deliberately taking damage to map out dark areas above the player.
  • The Star Cloak is of less use when dealing with a ranged attacker, as the stars will not impact any enemy that is not close to the player at the time.
  • Console VersionOld-gen console versionMobile version3DS version With high defense, one can stand on a Spike with the Star Cloak equipped to accumulate large numbers of stars. The Bee Cloak can be used to a more potent effect.
  • Desktop version Despite the 1.4.1.2 changes, stars will still fall when the player takes damage from their own Exploding Bullets. The rate at which stars fall can be maximized by using an automatic gun with a use time of 8, such as a Damaged Minishark for the lowest possible self-damage, or an Annoying Gatligator or Megashark for reduced ammo consumption.
  • The Star Cloak may be preferable to the Star Veil; while the player will take damage faster, stars will also fall faster, doing more damage.
