The Chaos Candle is a craftable Hardmode furniture item that will emit light and grant the Chaos Candle buff, which boosts all spawn rates by 66.67% and maximum spawn count by 150%.




  • The Chaos Candle is the direct opposite of the Tranquility Candle, which drastically decreases spawn rates.
  • Similar to the Water Candle, the player can receive the effects of the candle while holding it.
  • The Chaos Candle and its counterpart were implemented based on a community suggestion made by Cei on the mod's Discord server.
  • It is possible to stack spawn rate increases with other sources, such as the Water Candle, Battle Potion or Zerg Potion.
    • This can be used to farm more efficiently for rare drops.
