The Encumbering Stone is a pre-Hardmode item that prevents item pickup while inside the character's inventory. It is sometimes found in Sandstone Chests in the Underground Desert.

While in the inventory, the Encumbering Stone will prevent the pickup of any items, even if the player already have a stackable item in their inventory. This can be very useful while farming events or mining out hellevators. The Encumbering Stone will also prevent the entry of items into Void Bags.

Items reeled in from fishing are still placed in the player's inventory. Hearts and Stars will also be picked up even with the Encumbering Stone in the inventory.

Pressing Open / Activate on the Encumbering Stone in the player's inventory will toggle it between Encumbering Stone and Uncumbering Stone. Toggling it to the Uncumbering Stone disables its functions, allowing the player to pick up items again.

Notes

  • If the Encumbering Stone is in the player's inventory, opening any grab bag will prevent its contents from entering the player's inventory.
  • If the Encumbering Stone is placed inside a Void Vault, it will not block items from entering it nor prevent the player from picking up items.

Trivia

  • The tooltip for the item is likely a reference to the warning text that appears in some RPGs (such as in The Elder Scrolls series) when the character is carrying more than they can lift.

History

  • Desktop 1.4.4: Now can be toggled to the Uncumbering Stone, which temporarily disables its functions.
