  • The Herb Bag can appear in Surface Chests in stacks of 1–4, but higher amounts are rarer. If a chest contains any amount of Herb Bags, the chance it has just one is 84%, the chance of two is 12.33%, the chance of three is 3.33%, and the chance of four is just 0.33%.
  • Upon opening a Herb Bag,[1] a certain number of rolls will be performed, with each roll selecting a type of item and a stack size. The number of rolls is initially between 2 and 4, but has a 1/3 (33.33%) chance to be additionally incremented by 1:
No. of rolls Chance
2 2/9 (22.22%)
3 3/9 (33.33%)
4 3/9 (33.33%)
5 1/9 (11.11%)
The average number of rolls is 3.33.
Upon each roll, the 14 possible items have equal chances to be selected and the same item can be selected in multiple rolls. Each item starts in a stack of 2–4, but has a 1/3 (33.33%) chance to increase its stack size by a random number from 1 to 4:
Stack size per roll Chance
2 8/36 (22.22%)
3 9/36 (25%)
4 10/36 (27.78%)
5 3/36 (8.33%)
6 3/36 (8.33%)
7 2/36 (5.56%)
8 1/36 (2.78%)
The average stack size per roll is 3.83.
  • The maximum number of items that can be obtained from a Herb Bag is 40 (5 item rolls, each in stacks of 8) and the minimum number is 4 (2 item rolls in stacks of 2). The average number of items is 12.78.


  • The Herb Bag is the best way to obtain herbs in early pre-Hardmode, especially in Expert/Master Mode, as some seeds are in biomes where enemies are stronger.
  • If two Herb Bags are found, they can be researched in Journey Mode to provide an infinite amount of herbs and seeds without having to grow and research them manually.


  • The bag's sprite shows a Daybloom, Moonglow, Waterleaf, and what appears to be a Fireblossom at the rear.
