The Haunted Mirror is a decorative item that looks like a 2-block tall mirror with cobwebs in the corners. Despite its name, it is not actually reflective - the "mirror" part is simply a bluish color. It was added during the Halloween event of 2020.
How to obtain
Haunted Mirrors can be crafted in your Crafting Menu (to be opened by pressing "q" as the default key), but only after obtaining the corresponding crafting recipe from The Great Pumpkiru, either during a Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign Halloween event, or by summoning The Great Pumpkiru with a Mysterious Bauble.
Like all other placeable items, you can also obtain Haunted Mirrors by buying a building kit for a Blueprint that contains Haunted Mirrors.
How to unlock the crafting recipe
You can learn all of the rare crafting Recipes that you can find either by clicking on their icon in your inventory/bag with the right mouse button (by default).
Then the crafting Recipe will vanish from your inventory and a message will appear telling you that you have successfully learnt this rare Recipe. You can then find it in your Crafting Menu, where it will be permanently available, even on worlds with the "Pro" world option "world-bound recipes" enabled.
If you already know this rare Recipe and find it again, the new one will have a check mark over its icon and you cannot learn it a second time.
How to craft
To craft one Haunted Mirror, you'll need:
- 2 Melted Waxes made in the Forge from Beeswax, obtained as loot or pet harvest from any kind of Keepas or Hot Feet, or found in Wood Treasure Chests, Stone Treasure Chests or Obsidian Treasure Chests
- 2 blocks of Glass made in the Forge from Sand
- 4 Iron Rods made in the Processor from Iron Bars
How to use
Haunted Mirrors can be placed into the game world for decorative purposes by putting (a stack of) them into your quickbar, selecting the according quickslot and clicking the right mouse button while pointing at a spot in the game world with your cursor.
Like most other placeable items, Haunted Mirrors can be rotated into all directions by pressing and holding R and then pointing the mouse cursor at the Haunted Mirror and moving the mouse while holding the left mouse button.
The chosen rotation angle can be "locked" too by simply typing "r" while looking at an already rotated object or block; then all items of the same stack in the selected quickslot will automatically be facing the same direction when being placed.
Like most other placeable blocks, Haunted Mirrors can be painted, with the primary color influencing the color of the frame of the mirror. They are not affected by the secondary color. They can also be put into displays, where they will be shown at a reduced size.
You won't need any Power Cells (Mining Cell) to pick up Haunted Mirrors that have been placed into the game world. Of course you won't be able to pick up such objects on game worlds, on player claims or in Adventures where your Permission rank is not sufficient (mainly when you are merely a visitor), which can only be changed by the owner of the game world, claim owner or Adventure creator.
