Are you here for a peek at my crystal ball?

Emote Town Wizard.gif The Wizard

The Crystal Ball is a Hardmode furniture item which functions as a crafting station. It is purchased from the Wizard for 10 GC. Placing and pressing Open / Activate on a Crystal Ball grants the Clairvoyance buff.

The Clairvoyance buff boosts the following magic-related stats:

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, the Clairvoyance buff lasts until the player dies or leaves the world. On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and Nintendo 3DSNintendo 3DS version version, it lasts for 10 minutes. On all versions, the buff can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon using Cycle Next/Previous Buff and then pressing Remove Buff (Console version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Old-gen console version), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (Nintendo 3DS version).

Unlike equipment buff items, the Crystal Ball must be placed in order to activate the buff. It can be mined with a pickaxe or drill and picked up again, even while the buff is active, which will not cancel the buff. Placement is only dependent on an adequate space of 2×2 tiles being available.

Notes

  • The Crystal Ball can be activated limitlessly with no cooldown period. It is never consumed, and all players may use it to give themselves the buff.
    • (Old-gen console and 3DS versions) Activating the Crystal Ball while the Clairvoyance buff is already active resets the 10-minute buff duration.
