"By using an Alchemy Bench, you can combine different items to make different smells. You can get one from Dr Sto over to the West!"
Incense are a set of special items used in an Incense Burner to produce special effects and buffs.
Incense is made by combining Incense Base with other items in an Alchemy Bench. Different recipes create different types of incense, and the ratios used also cause the duration of the incense to last for longer or shorter periods of time.
Each item in the game falls under one of 5 categories: Nature, Flowers, Bees, Man-Made, and Hallowed. When these items are placed in the Alchemy Bench you will see an icon appear on the slot representing the element that it belongs to. A stack of at least 5 items in one slot is needed for it to be counted.
By combining different amounts of different elements, you can create different types of incense.
|Flora, Logs, Salt, Tree Acorn, Shrub Sapling Lilypad, Stone, some Spices
|Any Flowers or Seeds
|Most Special Produce, Beeswax, or Honeycomb
|Any item that doesn't fall into the other categories, basically anything crafted or a machine
|Apise, Honeycore, Blessed Pearl,Hallowed Dye
There are currently 11 different incenses that you can create in the game. Assuming each element is shortened to a single letter like so, Nature (N), Flowers (F), Bees (B), Man-Made (M), Hallowed (H), these are the combinations and ratios needed for each type of incense:
|Increases the chance of butterflies spawning nearby
|Increases the chance of solitary bees spawning nearby
|Increases the chance of blessed offspring nearby (social bees)
|Increases the amount of drops when using tools nearby
|Increases your luck when nearby (for social bee mutations and butterfly/solitary bee spawning)
|Increases the chance of golden butterflies nearby
|F & N
|Gives a chance that nearby hives will fill 2 frames instead of 1
|B & N
|Increases the repopulation speed of Bee Habitats nearby
|B & F
|Decreases the shop prices of NPCs nearby
|M & H
|Freezes the time of day when nearby
|F & N & B & M
|INCENSE NOT FOUND (causes a visual glitching effect when nearby)
|Any combination that contains Cube or Random Jelly
When used in an Incense Burner, the incense item will have it's duration counted down each second, when it runs out the item will be used up entirely.
The duration of incense is based on the total number of slots belonging to the dominant element in the combination (i.e. 3 green slots and 2 red slots, dominant total (DT) is 3), using the following formula: Duration (s) = DT*60*2
