The Honey Dew is a craftable Pre-Hardmode accessory. It grants 30 max life and the life regeneration effects of the Honey buff anywhere. It also halves the duration of all sickness debuffs. While the player is in contact with honey, standing still, and not using any items, the player gains 3 additional life regen and significantly accelerates in natural life regen.

  • The natural life regen boost from standing still in honey sets the lower bound of the lifeRegenTime variable to 1800 if it exceeds 90, and increases by 3 additional per frame. This effectively quadruples natural life regeneration rate and provides a headstart of 30 seconds.
  • The effects of honey life regen provided by Honey Dew will not stack with any of its upgrades, nor the Honey buff itself.


These history sections are still a work-in-progress, and may not yet contain changes relevant to the current version of the Calamity Mod.
  • Tooltip now clarifies its life regeneration.
    • Reworked:
      • No longer increases defense, damage reduction, and life regeneration while in the Jungle, grants immunity to Poisoned and Acid Venom, or reduces damage from bee and hornet enemies.
      • Now increases max health by 30, halves the duration of sickness debuffs, gives permanent honey life regeneration, and makes standing still in honey massively boost life regeneration.
    • Now uses 3 Bee Wax and 3 Murky Paste in its recipe instead of Living Dew, 3 Beetle Juice, Butterfly Dust, and 2 Trapper Bulbs, and now requires an Anvil to craft instead of a Hardmode Anvil.
    • Now uses the Rarity Level: 2 rarity instead of Rarity Level: 5.
    • Buffed defense boost while in the Jungle from 5 to 9.
    • Now uses the Rarity Level: 5 rarity instead of Rarity Level: 4.
  • Now uses 1 Butterfly Dust in its recipe instead of 1 Gypsy Powder.
  • Now uses 3 Beetle Juice, 1 Gypsy Powder, and 2 Trapper Bulbs in its recipe instead of Bezoar and 10 Bee Wax.
  • Nerfed life regeneration boost while in the Jungle from 2 to 1, and life regeneration while under a damaging debuff from 3 to 2.
    • Removed the "-like" from "Honey-like" in tooltip.
    • Nerfed damage reduction boost while in the Jungle from 10% to 5%, life regeneration boost while submerged in Honey from 4 to 3, and life regeneration time boost from 2 to 1.
  • Nerfed damage reduction towards bee/hornet enemies from 50% to 25%.
  • Fixed an oversight where it didn't provide protection against The Plaguebringer Goliath's large Plague Chargers.
