Overview[edit | edit source]

WARNING: If you are using version 2.4.B or below, then do not save and quit in this dimension. Due to a bug, doing so will cause the player to be dumped into the void upon returning to the Overworld. This bug is partially fixed in the latest version.

Gardencia is harder to survive in than dimensions of the likes of Precasia and Mysterium, but easier than most more brutal late-game dimensions like Dustopia. The Realmstone to this dimension is dropped by Dyrehorns and Giant Slugs, both of which spawn in Precasia. When you enter Gardencia you will receive a Resistance buff from Selyan.

What to bring?[edit | edit source]

PoisonArmorIcons.png SubterraneanArmorIcons.png - Because the mobs of Gardencia almost exclusively use melee attacks, Subterranean Armor is a very potent armor set for when exploring the dimension. Poison Armor is also a fair set to bring if you wish to spend a lot of time grinding Pod Plants, as their attacks leave a strong Poison debuff.

SwordCrystallite.png SwordSkeletal.png - Most of the mobs of Gardencia either have a strong HP pool or a strong HP regen. Bringing a sword that can deal a good amount of damage is highly advised.

Boat.png - Seeing as Gardencia is basically a giant archipelago, swimming from island to island is not only tedious - but dangerous! The water's ability to crush the player makes swimming here difficult. Not bringing a Boat to Gardencia would only make traversing the dimension harder than it needs to be.

HunterAtt.png - Your Hunting experience should be level 34 at least, as you cannot harm Daysees at any level lower. If you wish to fight Pod Plants, it must be even higher - level 37.

Why come here?[edit | edit source]

Vox Ponds Realmstone.png Ancient Cavern Realmstone.png - The Realmstones for Vox Ponds and the Ancient Cavern can both be obtained here.

Emerald.png - Because Daysees can drop Emeralds, grinding them is a good idea in order to trade with Villagers from the Overworld.

RosidRifle.png BowRosidian.png Rosidian Staff.png SwordRosidian.png RosidianGreatblade.png - Many types of decent weapons. A majority of the weapons from here spawn Rosids (more specifically the ones dropped by Vinocorne), so they can be handy in combat.

Generation[edit | edit source]

Gardencia is composed of many islands surrounded by a sea. The islands are composed of purple rock and green grass. Massive flowers dot the landscape. These flowers can reach the clouds and come in many different colors (e.g.: red, blue, etc). The oceans in Gardencia are colored purple. However, unlike regular Overworld oceans, the oceans in Gardencia will kill the player if the player goes too low, due to high water pressure. The player can only swim on the surface.

Biomes[edit | edit source]

There are a total of 3 biomes in Gardencia:

  • Gardencia: The regular Gardencia biome.
  • Gardencian Marsh: Similar to Gardencia, except the giants plants are very close together.
  • Gardencian Fungal: Giant Mushrooms replace the giant flowers here.

Tips for Hunting Mobs and exploring Gardencia![edit | edit source]

  • Be careful when fighting Archvines. They heal heavily, so if you do not have a high-damage dealing weapon, do not fight one.
  • Pod Plants can't be harmed until hunter level 37, and they inflict Poison III upon hit. If you are planning to fight Vinocorne prior to reaching hunter level 37, Poison Armor is a good armor set to take with you. Just be warned that it'll be very difficult to dodge these pests.
  • The oceans in Gardencia are shallow (only 2 blocks deep), but everything in the ocean below that depth is air (not including the floor) and it will pretty much guarantee death due to the water pressure. Because of this, either learn to swim really really well or bring a boat.
  • Vinocorne is easier to defeat if you fight with other players, but Vinocorne can get stuck in between the steps that lead to his lair. Sure, exploiting this weakness is cheap, but granted he won't let you come back up the stairs if you try to.
  • Gardencia does contain some caves, but there's little point in making a mineshaft due to the risks of breaking into the ocean and the lack of natural minerals.
  • All mobs in Gardencia heal in rain, so if it's raining in Gardencia, take extra precaution.
