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.

The realmstone to this dimension is dropped by tricksters and the mobs of the bloodhunt event. When the player enters the Abyss, they will receive a Strength buff from Erebon.

What to bring[edit | edit source]

AmethindArmorIcons.png - Armor equivalent to diamond or higher. Despite how surprisingly killable the mobs are (thanks to Erebon's Strength buff), Web Reapers are a pain to deal with.

Void Sword.png Sapphire Sword.png - You should always carry a potent weapon with you. Swords are especially potent in Erebon's dimensions due to how well their base damage synergizes with his Strength buff. Void Swords, Sapphire Swords, and casual Diamond Swords are certainly desirable picks.

Cooked Halycon Beef.png Golden Gullfish.png Violet Skipper.png - Bringing at least 1 full stack of food or more is handy, especially if you wish to go hunting for Flesh Eaters. It's especially recommended you bring food that can heal you, such as Golden Apples, Golden Gullfishes, and Violet Skippers. Golden Gullfishes and Violet Skippers can be found in the Overworld by fishing.

HunterAtt.png - Hunter level 14 is required to defeat Jawes. However, it must be level 35 in order to defeat Flesh Eaters. Fortunately, both can only be found in randomly generated structures.

Why come here[edit | edit source]

Shadow Sword.png Illusion Sword.png - Swords better than Sapphire - such as the Shadow Sword, Illusion Sword, and Bloodstone Sword - can be obtained from the Abyss. The latter can be crafted by mining Bloodstones, whereas the Shadow Sword and Illusion Swords can be found by defeating Elusive and the Shadowlord.

Blood Iron.png - Guns better than the Moonshiner and Hotshot- such as the Blood Iron and Bomb Launcher- can be obtained from the Abyss. Both of these guns can be obtained from fighting mobs.

Generation[edit | edit source]

The landscape of the Abyss is a combination of hills and flat areas. The underground of the dimension is made of abyssal stone, with a layer of abyssal grass on the surface. Bedrock exists at the bottom of the world. There is no dirt in the Abyss. The entirety of the dimension takes on a red color scheme.

The underground of the dimension is filled with caves. Bloodstone ore veins can be commonly found generating underground in the Abyss. Lakes filled with toxic blocks can be found deep underground, far below the surface, close to bedrock layer.

The surface of the Abyss is dotted with trees and gore-based plants and foliage. The Abyss is divided into three biomes - with the foliage varying depending on the biome. Lava lakes spawn on the surface of the Abyss.

The Abyssal Shadow Forest biome.

Biomes[edit | edit source]

The Abyssal Eyelands biome.

There are a total of 3 biomes in the Abyss:

  • Abyssal Void: The Abyssal Void contains the most diverse foliage out of the three biomes. In this biome, trees made of shadow wood and blood wood generate semi-commonly. Tentacles and shrubs cover the surface. Some of the trees and tentacles have eyes in them. The player may find the occasional tree with blood strands and eye blocks hanging off its branches. Huge archways made of abyssal stone also make up the landscape. Tubeicles and eye shrubs can be found on the surface.
  • Abyssal Shadow Forest: The Abyssal Shadow Forest is filled with tall trees made of shadow wood. Shadow leaves appear in clusters on the ground. Shadicles and shadow shrubs generate here as plants.
  • Abyssal Eyelands: The Abyssal Eyelands is populated with trees with blood strands and eye blocks. The trees are a lot smaller than the trees in the other biomes. Stacks of bulb stocks appear amongst the trees, alongside tubeicles.
