Fairy dust!


Gold Dust is a Resource introduced in the Hamlet DLC. It is obtained by mining artichoke shaped Boulders, using a Gold Pan at a Sparkling Pool, or mining Ruined Sculptures in the Ancient Pig Ruins. Six Gold Dust can be refined to a Gold Nugget. This recipe can be prototyped with a Science Machine.

If Gold Dust is dropped on the ground near a Pangolden, the Pangolden will eat it. After consuming three Gold Dust, the Pangolden will produce a Gold Nugget. This is more efficient than refining Gold Dust into Gold Nuggets, as it requires three instead of six Gold Dust.
