My flute!


The Pan Flute is a Magic item. It requires 5 Cut Reeds, 1 Mandrake, and 1 Rope to craft, and a Prestihatitator to prototype.

When played, it puts all Mobs within 15m to sleep, except for those that are incapable of sleeping.

It takes 1 second to begin playing the Pan Flute after clicking it. Mobs will be put into a deeper sleep than usual, allowing the player to move closer to them without waking them up; for example, the Tallbird.

If a mob that was put to sleep is attacked, all of the similar nearby mobs will wake up after a couple of seconds. Mobs sometimes sleep all day after they have been put to sleep by the Pan Flute.

The Pan Flute can be used to cool down enraged Dragonfly, outrun Bee Queen's Grumble Bees, buy time against Toadstool when it is trying to summon Sporecaps, shave Beefalo, or steal Tallbird Eggs and Pengull Eggs. The Pan Flute also complements the Feather Hat when looking for Morsels and Feathers.

Mandrakes are rare and if the player wishes to use Pan Flute more, they can deconstruct a Pan Flute using a Deconstruction Staff and craft it again to renew its durability. Mandrakes also have a chance to be obtained from Klaus's loot.

Placeholder Trivia[]

  • The Pan Flute is named after Pan, the Greek god of animals and music.
  • The Pan Flute is one of the 7 ways to put mobs to sleep, with the others methods being the Sleep Dart, Life Giving Amulet, NapsackWickerbottom's book Sleepytime Stories, and eating or cooking a Mandrake.
  • Using a Pan Flute near a Bird in flight will cause it to fall to the ground, ready to be picked up for a short time.
  • It is also apparently Wortox's flute, according to his character quote. This would make sense as the Pan Flute is shown to be shadow magic, and Wortox is an imp, which, according to folklore, dabble in the dark arts.
    • It is also shown in the portrait for his Verdant skin, which has similarities to Satyrs, which in folk tales would use Pan Flutes.
  • Making a Pan Flute out of a Mandrake is a much more efficient use of a Mandrake, as cooking and eating Mandrakes only have two uses, destroy the Mandrake, and also put the user to sleep. Pan Flutes have ten uses, but if used only nine times can be renewed with Deconstuction Staves, and do not put the user to sleep.
