The Distorting Artifact is a utility item used to save the player from falling into the void. When the player falls into the void with the item in their hotbar, they will be teleported to y = 257.

Usage[edit | edit source]

If the player goes below y = -3 with a Distorting Artifact in their hotbar, they will be saved by being teleported to y = 257 at identical x and z coordinates. This can easily be very helpful in void dimensions such as the Haven or Lunalus where the player would otherwise die if they fell into the void. Each teleportation costs a single durability point.

The Distorting Artifact also resets distance fallen to -20 blocks, such that they must fall another 20 blocks before fall damage accumulates as normal. However, due to teleporting the player to y = 257, this reset is almost never noticeable and without other fall damage mitigation the player will die anyway upon hitting the ground. It is important to bring items such as Gravitators or Ender Pearls, or armor that is immune to fall damage.
