An Ocuvigil is a Don't Starve Together exclusive Structure, introduced in A New Reign. It is found in the Tools Filter and Shadow Magic Filter, requires a Purple Moonlens, a Compass and 2 Boards to craft, and a Prestihatitator to prototype. It serves as a Map marker and is also used for revealing the Fog of War in a certain location to all players. Contrary to popular belief, it does not keep the area around it loaded.

  • Placing Ocuvigil next to Bee Queen's hive will keep the players informed whenever she respawns. There are multiple similar uses of this structure such as keeping an eye on the spider dens, the Ruins awaiting to respawn.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • The Ocuvigil was added in the East or West, Base is Best update.
  • It's referred to as a "sentryward" in the game files. Also, a similar structure with the same name and function exists in multiple MOBAs.
  • The name "Ocuvigil" is a portmanteau of "oculus" and "vigil".
  • It used to be crafted with a Yellow Moonlens, that was replaced by a Purple Moonlens in a later update, as Yellow Gems are not easily available in worlds without Caves.
  • Placing Ocuvigil on a boat that's been moved with an oar used to result in a slow and random, but automatic exploration of the ocean. Creating such set would've cost 6 planks, compass and a purple moonrock. As of the Waterlogged Update, this can no longer happen, since boats now no longer retain their momentum after rowing only once.
