Terraforge Icon.png

A massive ancient machine. What could it be used for?

Unobtainable Object

Terraforge is an object unobtainable by players through normal means. This item's information is present in the game files, but not intended by developers to be in players' possession.

The Terraforge is a special crafting station found only in Ancient Vaults. Players can exchange Ancient Essence and elemental drops for a variety of planetary Terraformers.

The only way to access a terraforge is to clear past the guardian inside an Ancient Vault. The terraforge is found immediately before the exit from the vault.

Though it can be accessed through normal gameplay, it cannot be picked up or printed at a Pixel Printer. Players must clear a vault dungeon each time they wish to access a terraforge.


All terraformers must be crafted using 3000 Ancient Essence and 50 units of an elemental Monster drop material:
