Miasma is an environmental hazard that spawns around Shadow Rifts, in varying amounts increasing with the phase of the rift. Standing within the miasma will damage the player by 2 hp every 2 seconds, slow them down, as well as apply an overlay to the screen to obscure their vision.

Applying fire to the Miasma via methods such as building a Campfire, Fire Pit, or interestingly, a Night Light, will cause the miasma to dissipate temporarily. Walking through it with a torch will also cause it to disappear as well as prevent any damage as they make contact with it. Endothermic fires do not provide the same effect. Additionally, Desert Goggles, Astroggles or the Brightshade Helm will nullify the slowing effect and lessen the intensity of the overlay, but will not prevent the HP depletion.

Prototype.png Tips

  • It is recommended to avoid the Miasma entirely, as warding it away is only a temporary measure, and one may opt to simply fight the Fused Shadeling that spawn from the Shadow Rift outside of the Miasma instead.
