Terraria Chinese Lantern


  • The Chinese character on the Lantern, pronounced kāi, means "open" or "modified".
  • Today the Chinese lantern is used in festivals such as Lunar New Year, Mid-Autumn Festival, and Lantern Festival.
  • The Chinese lantern is made in Terraria with silk, but real Chinese lanterns are made with paper, this could be a reference to China's excessive use of silk in the past.

Update Info


  • Added to the game.
