Touch Stone is a structure found randomly on the surface world. Activating it will allow the player to be resurrected upon death.

A Touch Stone is always surrounded by 4 Pig Heads. The Pig Heads are not needed for the Touch Stone to function and can safely be deconstructed using a Hammer. The Wooden Flooring can also be taken without affecting the Touch Stone's usability.

When a Touch Stone is activated (by clicking on it), a small platform will rise out of the ground. After being revived on the platform, the Touch Stone will be destroyed by a lightning strike, dropping 2 Rocks, 2 Marble, and 1 Nightmare Fuel. Wilson and Webber will be beardless when resurrected. WX-78 will become overcharged by the lightning during the resurrection. Unless another Touch Stone or revival item is found, the next death will cause "Game Over" which will require the player to restart from scratch.

By default, there are two (2) Touch Stones per world. Touch Stones cannot spawn in Caves and Ruins. Both Touch Stones can be activated at the same time. The player will always respawn at the closest resurrection device.

In Don't Starve Together, Touch Stones work a bit differently. They spawn in their activated state, meaning they cannot be activated by a living player. They are only usable by Ghost Characters as a means of resurrection via haunting. A single Touch Stone can be used more than once by different players, regenerating quickly after use. Every resurrection produces Marble and Nightmare Fuel. However, each player can only use any single Touch Stone once; haunting it again will do nothing. Players can tell which Touch Stones they have and haven't used by the runes present on the Stone's surface; if the runes are glowing the Touch Stone can be used, while if the runes aren't glowing the Touch Stone has already been used.

It is advisable for other players to remain off-screen during a resurrection as the Lightning produced may strike them instead of the Touch Stone.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, Touch Stones have the same function, and differences are due to item replacements in the DLC. Instead of Pig Heads, a Touch Stone is surrounded by Wildbore Heads. Using the stone to resurrect will yield Limestone instead of Marble.

Resurrection Penalties

  • HealthMeter.png is set to 50
  • Hunger.png is set to 2/3 of maximum
  • Sanity.png is set to 1/2 of maximum
  • Empty inventory (items can be recovered at the place of death)

Tentacle Spike.png Tips

  • Being revived by the Touch Stone does not put any nearby Mobs to sleep.
  • Placing a Fire Pit and a chest (or two) near the Touch Stone can increase chances of survival after being resurrected. Because of the resurrection penalties, this is especially useful in Winter or Summer in RoG.
    • Useful items to stock the chest(s) or nearby include:
      • A Thermal Stone (remember that Moleworms will steal them if they are nearby)
      • A Weapon and Armor
      • Tallbird Egg or any food source that doesn't spoil easily such as nearby berry bushes
      • Healing Salves
      • Portable light such as a Miner Hat or extra resources/tools to create enough light to make it back to a base/camp. For example, a spare Axe.
      • Wetness resisting items like a Straw Hat or Umbrella for the Spring.
      • Cooling Items like a Chilled Amulet and resources for an Endothermic Fire for the Summer.
      • Overheating protection items for the Summer, Insulating items for the Winter
  • Do not leave flammable items in the wooden square around the Touch Stone. The Lightning that strikes can ignite nearby items.
  • Breaking down the Pig Heads near a Touch Stone is an easy way to get Pig Skin.
  • Placing a Meat Effigy next to a Touch Stone might save the Touch Stone to be used at a later time.
