I wonder what enchantments have been placed on the moon- It's all blue!
"The Mystic Moon is rising..."
A Mystic Moon is a fairly common randomly occurring event in Hardmode that takes place over the course of an entire night (7:30 p.m-4:30 a.m.) It causes several hazards for its duration such as multiple new dangerous enemies. Mystic Moons are signaled by the message "The Mystic Moon is rising..." in the lower left corner of the screen, and the moon, sky, water, and rain will appear blue for the duration of the event. A blue filter will also be present in all above-ground areas.
A Mystic Moon will only occur if the world is in Hardmode. It can happen any night with a 1 in 25 chance or if the player uses a Turquoise Lens at night.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Similar to a Solar Eclipse, you can take refuge from the Mystic Moon by hiding underground for safety.
Trivia[edit | edit source]

- A Blue moon in real life is the second Full moon in a single month.
- Some of the enemies in the event are references to the “Alice in Wonderland” series.
