Usage[edit | edit source]
The Oil Jar is a clay jar that is full of a highly flammable, petroleum mixture that can be thrown down and connected to make a trail of flammable materials that can be lit on fire to burn anything in its path including creatures and players that come in contact with it. This makes it good for attacking smaller bases during raids. For example, one could use it for defense of a base by making a trail all the way around it and lighting the oil on fire as the enemies draw near or it could be used aggressively by spamming them on the ground before lighting them up.
One of the best ways to use the Oil Jar however, is in a tight space where creatures, players, and certain creatures can constantly be burned till death.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- An oil puddle that is not ignited will last 5 minutes before disappearing.
- When you ignite an oil puddle, the puddle will burn for 30 seconds before disappearing.
- Despite the plethora of things and creatures that could ignite an oil blob, from the fiery blaze of a Fire Wyvern or Phoenix, to the combustion of a Grenade, to the burning from a Campfire; only 3 things in the entire game can actually light the oil. These things are a thrown Torch, a shot Flame Arrow, or flames from a Flamethrower.
- Beware ignited oil puddles hitting a spike wall as they may cause large amounts damage to the player that ignited it continuously for the burning duration, likely a bug similar in association to the flamethrower.
- Ignited Oil Jars can be used to tame the Phoenix.
