I wonder what enchantments have been placed on the moon- It's all blue!

The Enchanter

"The Mystic Moon is rising..."

A Mystic Moon is a fairly common randomly occurring event in Hardmode that takes place over the course of an entire night (7:30 p.m-4:30 a.m.) It causes several hazards for its duration such as multiple new dangerous enemies. Mystic Moons are signaled by the message "The Mystic Moon is rising..." in the lower left corner of the screen, and the moon, sky, water, and rain will appear blue for the duration of the event. A blue filter will also be present in all above-ground areas.

A Mystic Moon will only occur if the world is in Hardmode. It can happen any night with a 1 in 25 chance or if the player uses a Turquoise Lens at night.

During a Mystic Moon, its own music track Blue Moon will play.

NotesEdit

  • Similar to a Solar Eclipse, you can take refuge from the Mystic Moon by hiding underground for safety.

TriviaEdit

  • In real life, the Moon appears blue by smoke or dust particles in the atmosphere. This has happened during the forest fires in Sweden and Canada in 1950 and 1951.
  • A Blue moon in real life is the second Full moon in a single month.
  • Multiple enemies in the event are references to the “Alice in Wonderland” series.
