The Defiled Rune is an item that can be activated and deactivated while in Revengeance Mode or Death Mode. When active, it has multiple effects on gameplay:

  • Halves the player's maximum life.
  • Increases the damage resistance (DR) of all enemies by a varying percentage that causes them to take half as much damage as they originally would have.
  • If an item's drop chance is less than 5%, it will be raised to 5%.
    • For some Calamity-only items, this allows them to be dropped twice, albeit with a very low chance.
    • The Halibut Cannon is the sole exception to this rule.
  • Doubles the amount of money that drops from enemies.
  • Some enemies will drop items that they normally will only drop in certain biomes.

It can be crafted at an Altar and does not have any ingredients.

Drops[edit | edit source]

While the Defiled Rune is active, some enemies will drop items that they normally will only drop in certain biomes.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If used while a boss is alive, it will instantly kill the player and despawn any active bosses.
  • The effect of this item tends to cause some bosses to spawn twice at the same time.
