The Stalking Stick is an equippable Item exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. Just like the Walking Cane, it is a speed increasing item, which can also be used as a weapon. It is made by drying a Flytrap Stalk on a Drying Rack. It increases the character's movement speed by 30% while equipped (which is 5 percent points faster than the Walking Cane). It has a durability of three in-game days, and it can be repaired to 100% durability by a Sewing Kit.
The Stalking Stick can also be used while sailing on Boats, providing the same speed boost.
- The Stalking Stick may be used as a weapon, although it is among the weakest in the game, as it only deals a little more than half the damage of a Spear when used as a weapon. However using it as a weapon does not drain its durability.
- The Stalking Stick's speed boost puts the character on the same level as many other creatures who could otherwise outrun them, including followers like Chester. This is amplified by both natural Road, Stone Road and Cobblestone, for a combined increase of movement speed by 60%, allowing players to outrun most mobs in the game.
- One can stack the speed bonus with the Magiluminescence to have a total increase of 50% movement speed while both items are worn, which means that while on a road, the player will have a 80% speed boost. This can further be increased with WX-78's overload, Wolfgang's mighty speed boost or Wilbur's, Wheeler's and Blooming Wormwood's speed boost, or after eating Coffee, Tropical Bouillabaisse, Iced Tea and/or Tea.
- The Stalking Stick used to not be flammable before the February 13, 2019 update.
