Name Stone
Launcher Throwing / Hunting sling / Fustibalus
Base damage 2
A small chunk of dense but otherwise unremarkable natural mineral. It can be thrown by hand or launched with a sling.

"How happy is the little Stone
That rambles in the Road alone,
And doesn't care about Careers
And Exigencies never fears -
Whose Coat of elemental Brown
A passing Universe put on,
And independent as the Sun
Associates or glows alone,
Fulfilling absolute Decree
In casual simplicity -"

-Emily Dickinson, "How happy is the little Stone". ca. 1865.

Stones are an extremely common form of ammo which can be either thrown by hand for minimal damage or launched from a hunting sling or fustibalus with additional launcher damage. While stones may seem unimpressive, they do have a few useful features:

  • Stones can be used for softening up early-game enemies.
  • Sandblast spell consumes one stone per casting directly from inventory, but no longer functions without ammo as of 0.20.


Before 0.11, mulching a large rock would create a stack of stones.
