The Enchanted Sundial skipping a day. Note the clouds and sun speeding across the top of the screen.

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 usable again until 7 in-game days (2 hours and 48 minutes in real time) have passed normally. On the Desktop only.png PC version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and tModLoader version tModLoader 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 Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, Old Chinese version Old Chinese version, and tModLoader 1.3-Legacy version tModLoader 1.3-Legacy 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 60 times faster than usual (1 hour of in-game time, which would usually take 1 minute of real-life time, takes only 1 second while while the Enchanted Sundial is active). Sleeping in a Bed won't make time pass faster while the Enchanted Sundial is active.


  • 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 shares its color palette and architectural theme with much of the Skyware furniture set, though there is no direct correlation between the two.


  • Desktop Fixed an issue where Enchanted Sundial would cause heavy FPS drops.
  • Desktop Fixed a bug where speeding time up with an Enchanted Sundial would make some unusual visual effects.
