Honey is a liquid found in pools or honeyfalls in Hive Biomes, located within the larger Underground Jungle biome. It's mechanics are similar to those of water and lava. If submerged in the honey, the breath meter will start to decrease, and after it has fully decreased will deplete the player's health bar. It moves slower and also slows players, NPCs, and monsters which are touching the honey. You can duplicate honey the same way you do with lava and water. Honey can also be created when breaking hive blocks, which also spawn bees.
When water touches honey, a Honey Block is created.
When lava touches honey, a Crispy Honey Block is created.
When touching honey you gain the "Honey" Buff, which increases life regeneration. When leaving honey, players are left with a 30 second honey buff.
- Because honey provides life regeneration buff, it can be used in low-hp situations. For example, the player can always have a honey bucket by him or her in case he or she needs it.
- You can run out of oxygen in honey, but the life regeneration will prevent you from losing health.
- Honey can be used with two pumps (one input, one output) to grow exponentially. Basically, if you have enough honey from a beehive, where it covers over the top of the input, it will come out of the output, and, if the output is directly over the pool of the input, the honey will grow, and you will have an infinite amount, wherever you want, with enough wire, and space! See more here, in the "Bugs" section.
- If you use the Rod of Discord while standing in honey, your movement will continue to be slowed while underwater. Once you jump in air, your movement will speed up again.
- After stepping out from honey deep enough to give you a regeneration buff and you talk to an NPC or open your inventory, and if timed correctly, a nearby liquid particle will continue to grow in size forever. As long as the dialog or shopping screen is kept open, it will grow. Once the dialog is closed, the particle will rotate and shrink until it dissapears. This can only be done in Singleplayer.
- There is a bug that allows a player to duplicate Campfires by placing them in a thin strip of Honey, deep enough to give the Honey Buff.
- Pumping honey will no longer turn honey into water
- Added to the game.
