Graveyard Biome in Terraria Journey's End

Journey’s End is the final update for Terraria, and it adds a ton of new content for players to explore. In this guide, we’ll be looking at one of the new mini-biomes introduced into the game. Here’s everything there is to know about the Graveyard Biome in Terraria Journey’s End.

This post may contain spoilers, so turn back if you are not ready to learn about the new biome.

Where to Find Graveyard Biome in Terraria Journey’s End

The Graveyard Biome is a new area in the game where zombies and other undead can spawn even during the daytime. It is a unique biome that can be created by the player, and it’s not something you can stumble across randomly. To get a Graveyard Biome, you need to place eight tombstones on the ground next to each other to get the full effect. 

You might be wondering how to get tombstones. Dying assuredly spawns them on the ground, but what about hardcore players? Re-Logic came up with a solution where NPCs drop them when they die as well. If you play hardcore, you can start by desecrating your villagers and NPCs to get your hands on eight tombstones.

To remove the Graveyard Biome, use your pickaxe to dig up the tombstones, and the area will go back to normal. Careful, though, because a ghost may spawn after you destroy them! 

Benefits of the Graveyard Biome in Terraria Journey’s End

So, what’s the point of this new biome? NPCs sell unique items when they have a house near the Graveyard Biome, such as Gravedigger Coat, Funeral Coat, Funeral Hat, and much more. New crafting options also exist within the graveyard like the Gravedigger’s Shovel

In pre-update Terraria, many background walls were impossible to get. You can now craft walls in this mini-Biome like the Craggy Stone Wall, Ivy Stone Wall, and Emerald Stone Wall. All you need to do is place a workbench in the dirt of the Graveyard Biome to be able to craft dozens of these new items.

Craftable Items in the Graveyard Biome in Terraria Journey’s End

There are dozens of new craftable items within the Graveyard Biome, and here are a few:

  • Tattered Wood Sign – Requires Wood
  • Stone Accent Slab – Requires Stone
  • Wrought Iron Fence – Requires Iron 
  • Boulder Statue – Requires Boulders
    • Can be hung from the ceiling and activated by a switch once per fifteen seconds

After defeating Plantera and unlocking Cyborg, you can move him into the Graveyard Biome for more new items: Echo Block and Spectre Goggles.

Echo Blocks are the first completely invisible block in Terraria. You can only see them when wearing Spectre Goggles, the other new item from the Cyborg NPC. These blocks have many uses like making invisible walls, preventing grass from growing on surfaces, and so on.
