Item description[edit | edit source]

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Star-Shell can be obtained in the following ways:

  • In The Corridors of Frostfound - The Dark Room, by choosing the Harvest a Star-Shell action.

This method only requires a single crate of Foxfire Candles, and can be repeated after selling or using your Star-Shell.
