Shell Piles are a decorative block found naturally in the Ocean biome in large clumps. They are affected by gravity and will fall if supporting blocks are removed, dealing damage to any player or enemy they land on. They can also be found in Ocean Crates or in Seaside Crates.

Notes[]

  • Falling Shell Pile blocks will not land on platforms, like most other falling blocks. The only exception are Sand Blocks.
  • Since Shell Piles are affected by gravity, they can Block Swap Sand and other gravity-affected blocks.
  • Because Shell Piles randomly generate near oceans, they have no value to NPCs, even though their component materials have a value between 2 silver and 1 gold.
  • Shell Piles is considered a soft tile by the Gravedigger's Shovel.
