  • The Chaos Candle is the direct opposite of the Tranquility Candle, which drastically decreases spawn rates.
  • Similar to the Water Candle, the player can receive the effects of the candle while holding it.
  • The Chaos Candle and its counterpart were implemented based on a community suggestion made by Celest on the mod's Discord server.
  • It is possible to stack spawn rate increases with other sources, such as the Water Candle, Battle Potion or Zerg Potion.
    • This can be used to farm more efficiently for rare drops.
