The Flask of Fire is a flask that will cause any melee weapons (and Whips) to inflict the On Fire! debuff. On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, this effect will not be lost when the player dies.

The Flask of Fire cannot be used in conjunction with other flasks, and using it will remove any existing flask effects.

This item currently does not apply the debuff in PvP scenarios. The debuff lasts for 3–6 seconds.




  • The flask of fire is a cheap way of providing light when exploring underground in early Hardmode. While the hellstone cost may be high, the buff lasts for quite a long time and persists after death.
