The Oyster is a grab bag-type item that always drops a Shucked Oyster, and has a 1/5 (20%) chance to drop (in order of increasing rarity) a White, Black, or Pink Pearl. It is acquired by fishing in the Desert biome. The Desert biome must not overlap with Corruption or Crimson.

  • As with other types of grab bags, it is always worthwhile to open Oysters. Along with the edible Shucked Oyster, which can be sold for 20 SC, the pearls will sell for, on average, 51 SC11 CC per Oyster.
