Water is a fluid block found throughout the world which players can swim in and certain blocks can be submerged in.

Obtaining[]

Water can be found throughout Orbis in the Emerald Grove, Howling Sands, and Borea in the form of oceans, lakes, rivers and ponds. Water must be picked up using a bucket.

Usage[]

Water can be used to irrigate crops.

Behavior[]

A river with submersed reeds.

Submersibility[]

Certain blocks such as reeds and seagrass grow submerged in water and other blocks like chests can be placed submerged into a body of water.

Swimming[]

Players and certain other NPCs are able to swim in the water, which makes them move quicker than if they were to wade through it. Players use a special swim animation when swimming in water.

Drowning[]

Non-aquatic NPCs will drown in water if they are submerged in it for too long. There are tools the player can craft that are meant to be used for underwater breathing and/or faster underwater swimming.

Animations[]

  • A reflection of the environment above can be seen on the surface of the water.
  • Ripples can be seen on the floors or walls of a body of water.
