Water Fountains are mechanisms that change the color of all nearby Water. They can be activated via Open / Activate, or via wire. There are currently 8 different obtainable Fountains, all of which are purchased from the Witch Doctor for 4 Gold Coin each at any time. On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and 3DS version DS versions, they are able to be purchased for free, but are only available after Plantera has been defeated.

There is a ninth fountain that remains unobtainable, as there is no item associated to it and only exists as a placed sprite.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Fountains work in priority from right to left. The furthest fountain to the right of a group of fountains will take priority over the water color of the overlapping affected areas.
  • If using the Biome Hair Dye from the Stylist, your hair will change color to that of the biome represented by the fountain.
  • The effects of Fountains are purely cosmetic. They have no effect on Fishing, etc.
  • Before, all Water Fountains were free.
  • Water Fountains will not color Waterfall Blocks, or their respective wall.
  • Water Fountains will change the color of water when you are within about 100 blocks of the fountain.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The unobtainable fountain sprite in the game files resembles water found in the Underground and Caverns biomes.
