Caden

Graveyards provide special opportunities for players to obtain unique drops, NPC items and crafting recipes! Do you want to create this biome? Read this FULL guide to know more!

Although a resting place for the dead, the Graveyard Biome is anything but peaceful. Hostile mobs spawn here regardless of the time of day, and zombies can open doors!

How do you create a Graveyard?

Graveyards are created when 5 or more tombstones are close to the player.

There are two ways to obtain tombstones:

  • Through the death of a player
  • The death of an NPC in a world containing a hardcore character

Graveyards can either be created manually by placing tombstones, or created naturally through player-dropped tombstones.
