The water candle on Terraria is a blue-shaped cylinder object with a white-to-blue glow, and you can typically find one in chests or underground cavern areas of the game.

The water candle effect can be stacked with other items with a spawn rate increase, like a battle potion and works underground and overground. You can deactivate it by putting a torch on top of the candle.

Tips For Crafting Water Candles & Using Them

Now we know how to easily craft a water candle rather than buying them, we’ve listed our best tips below on how to use them.

  • Use it strategically – Using a water candle in the game makes it significantly more dangerous. Therefore only use it when you need to farm specific screen enemies for drop points. 
  • Put it in a safe place – Make sure the water candle is safe so enemies cannot attack in holes or behind.
  • Make sure it’s in your hot bar – Having your water candle in the hot bar needs to be selected so that you can hold the candle; having it in your inventory will not work.
  • Avoid using a peace candle – The peace candle does the opposite of a water candle and decreases the enemy spawn rate. By using both at the same time, neither will affect the spawn rate.
  • Combine with other items – Combining your water candle with other things helps with the spawn rate and gives you a higher chance of finding rare enemies and items.
  • Deactivate when you need – If the hostile enemies start to become too many, deactivate the candle by putting a torch on top.
  • Enhance the effect – Having a gem corn or coral on top of the water candle can increase its effect further.
