The Wooden Potato Thing is the Shipwrecked equivalent to the Metal Potato Thing in both Sandbox Mode and Adventure Mode.

It spawns naturally in the world in its own Set Piece. The player will find a Drying Rack, a Fire Pit, a Skeleton, and some Rocks, all underlayed with Magma Turf.

The only purpose of the Wooden Potato Thing is to be used on the Wooden Thing. It's an important gameplay Item and as such it cannot be destroyed or stolen by Mobs (e.g. Krampus, Splumonkeys etc.)

Prototype.png Tips[edit | edit source]

  • If player manages to find the Wooden Potato Thing Set Piece when starting in a world, this is a rather good place to take shelter. The area around is usually safe from dangers, and can even be "upgraded" to a better base.
