The Enchanted Sundial is a Hardmode furniture item that can be placed. Pressing the ⚷ Open / Activate button on it will advance time to sunrise (4:30 AM) the following day. It has a 7-day cooldown period, so once used, it will not be useable again until 7 in-game days (2 hours and 48 minutes in real time) have passed normally. On the Desktop version, Console version, and Mobile version, the Enchanted Sundial is obtained from fished Pearlwood (
0.5*1/200 (0.5%) chance), Mythril, ( 1.67*1/60 (1.67%) chance), and Titanium Crates ( 5*1/20 (5%) chance), while on the Switch version and tModLoader version, it is obtained from Wooden ( 0.5*1/200 (0.5%) chance), Iron ( 1.67*1/60 (1.67%) chance), and Golden Crates ( 5*1/20 (5%) chance) during Hardmode.
The Enchanted Sundial does not turn the time to the next day immediately. It instead "fast-forwards" time, causing it to pass more quickly than usual.
- Its 7-day cooldown is shared between all Enchanted Sundials in the current world, so a second Sundial cannot be used to circumvent it.
- The chances of invasions and other events are calculated as if the time actually passed.
- In multiplayer, the Sundial will only count a cooldown day passing if there are players online when the in-game day changes.
- The Enchanted Sundial has a few noteworthy uses:
- On the Desktop version, Console version, and Mobile version, it is also possible to speed up time by sleeping in a Bed and in Journey mode there is an option to speed up time as well.
- The Enchanted Sundial shares its color palette and architectural theme with much of the Skyware furniture set, though there is no direct correlation between the two.
