For the vanilla Jungle Shrine, see here.

Shrines are structures generated at world creation in certain areas of the world. The Calamity Mod currently adds 9 types of shrines, each generating within a different biome. These include the Surface/Underground, Desert, Snow, Granite Cave, Marble Cave, Corruption, Crimson, Glowing Mushroom biome, and Abyss. Each shrine has a unique visual design and structure, and contains a chest which holds a special item depending on the shrine type, alongside normal chest loot.

  • The Underground Shrine uses a similar shape as the Enchanted Sword Shrine. Just like the Enchanted Sword Shrine, it will also have a 1-tile wide shaft extending up to the surface, making it easier to find than the other shrines.
  • The Desert Shrine is based on Luxor's Gift, the shrine's main item.
  • The Glowing Mushroom Shrine is based on the Fungal Symbiote, the shrine's main item.
  • The Crimson Shrine is based on one of the large skeletons found within one of the Crimson's backgrounds.
