Fullscreen map background

The Briar is a biome that generates on world creation. It is a fairly large biome similar to the Forest, with yellow-green trees and dark green grass, Skulls on a Stick, a large Living Tree-like structure, a fairly large system of caves beneath the surface containing Briar Huts where Briar Chests and Wildwood Altars can be found, and a small cavern where the boss of the biome can be summoned. When exploring the Briar, it will start raining constantly until the biome is exited; defeating Vinewrath Bane for the first time stops the rain, and the message "The torrential downpour in the Briar has lifted!" will appear in the chat. Water in the biome inflicts Poisoned unless the Vinewrath Bane has been defeated.

The Adventurer will be found tied up in one of the Briar Huts.

When exploring the Briar during the day, its own music track Seedless Garden will play. Once the moon rises, the track Briar Night, will play instead.
