The Wizard

The Crystal Ball is a Hardmode furniture item that, when placed and pressed Open / Activate on, grants the Clairvoyance buff for 10 minutes. It also functions as a crafting station for certain items. It is purchased from the Wizard for 10.

The Clairvoyance buff boosts the following magic-related stats:

This lasts for 10 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon (Desktop version), by selecting the icon and canceling it in the equipment menu (Console versionOld-gen console version), by double-tapping the buff icon (Mobile version), or by canceling the buff from the buffs screen (3DS version). The Clairvoyance buff can be refreshed limitlessly, with no cooldown period or restrictions on use.

The Crystal Ball is not equipable in an accessory slot, and must be placed instead in order to activate the buff. It can be mined with a pickaxe or drill and picked up again, even while the buff is active, which will not cancel the buff.
