The Guide to Plant Fiber Cordage is an accessory that, when equipped, allows the player to collect Vine Rope when destroying vines. It can be found inside surface Chests or in Wooden Crates and Pearlwood Crates obtained from fishing. It can also be purchased at the Skeleton Merchant for 2 GC50 SC during First Quarter.


  • It only works on regular and Jungle vines, and does not work on any other vines.
  • In single player, this affects any vines that are destroyed by whatever means, including breaking the blocks they hang from. Minions can also break vines as they shoot at passing enemies, and these too will drop as Vine Rope.
  • In Multiplayer, vines will only drop if the player closest to the vine has the Guide to Plant Fiber Cordage equipped, regardless of who destroyed them.


  • The Vine Rope produced by this item is identical to ordinary Rope in every way but appearance (which is more visible), and vines are naturally occurring and abundant. Finding this item early can greatly decrease the difficulty of exploring deep caves before acquiring mobility aids like Grappling Hooks.
  • It is especially useful in Large worlds, where a single hellevator can use up a significant chunk of a 9999-stack of ropes just for the straight distance. With this item, a lot of Vine Ropes can be gathered in just a few minutes of bouncing around surface or Jungle caves.


  • The symbol on the book appears to be a Vine Rope, the item this book allows the player to collect.
  • Among all the "Guide to" book items, this is the only item that is an accessory.
