The Thermal Stone, also known as Heat Stone, is a Survival item in Don't Starve. It requires an Alchemy Engine to prototype, and costs 10 Stones, 1 Pickaxe, and 3 Flint to craft. Its purpose is to delay body temperature change, preventing the player from Freezing in the Winter.

A Thermal Stone absorbs heat from a fire, regardless of whether it is on the ground, in a Chest, or in the player's inventory. The size of the fire affects the maximum charge the stone can attain. A Thermal Stone itself has 120 points of insulation. A Red Hot Thermal Stone can emit enough light to ward off Charlie.

Temperature StagesEdit

A Thermal Stone's temperature ranges between -20° and +90°. There are five states that depend on the temperature differential between its own temperature and the world temperature.

Thermal Stone Stage 1 Freezing White : more than 30° below the world temperature
Thermal Stone Blue : between 30° and 10° below the world temperature
Thermal Stone Stage 3 Gray : between 10° lower and 10° higher than the world temperature
Thermal Stone Stage 4 Yellow : between 10° and 30° above the world temperature
Thermal Stone Stage 5 Glowing Red : more than 30° above the world temperature

The Thermal Stone has its own temperature; even if it is Freezing White or Glowing Red, it may not be fully charged. A Thermal Stone requires about 90 seconds to be fully charged.

Gift Icon Downloadable ContentEdit

In all DLCs, cold Thermal Stones can be used in the Summer or Dry Season to prevent Overheating. A Thermal Stone can be cooled by placing it next to an Endothermic Fire, in an Ice Box, or in Snow Chester. Thermal Stones placed in Snow Chester will cool at half the rate that they would in an ice box.

While carried in any Backpack, including the Insulated Pack, Thermal Stones can still affect the player's temperature.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Moleworms can steal Thermal Stones, so caution must be taken, especially around Deciduous Forest biomes. Thermal Stones no longer emit light.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, Thermal Stones are an ingredient for the Ice Maker 3000.

Don't Starve Together icon Don't Starve Together Edit

The Thermal Stone in Don't Starve Together has some differences from Singleplayer and its DLCs:

  • Every time the Thermal Stone goes from Freezing White or Glowing Red to Gray, the Thermal Stone loses 12.5% of its durability. It can, however, be repaired with a Sewing Kit, one use of which will fully repair it.
  • Carrying multiple Thermal Stones has no benefit. The Thermal Stone emits a fixed temperature, based on temperature stage, to the character.
  • The Thermal Stone does not combine well with insulation clothing due to its mechanics in DST. A Thermal Stone is a good insulation item, comparable to a single Beefalo Hat.
  • A level 5 or Glowing Red Thermal Stone can emit enough light to ward off Charlie.
  • Thermal Stones stored in Snow Chester will cool at half the rate of a normal Ice Box.

Blue and gray Thermal Stones can be given to the Antlion to appease it, delaying its rage by 2.98 days. When offered white, yellow or red Thermal Stones it will become enraged.

Prototype TipsEdit

  • The crafting recipe will accept pickaxes of any durability, so it is advised to use pickaxes that are at 3% durability to avoid wasting their use.
  • In Winter, the Thermal Stone actually freezes the player at its coldest state, and during Summer hot Thermal Stones overheat the player. Chester, Packim Baggims or Hutch can be utilized to carry the cold/hot Thermal Stones, without affecting player temperature. Companions are immune to the effects of Freezing and Overheating.
  • Having more than one Thermal Stone, one carried with the player, the other one kept charged (near a fire for warmth, or in an Ice Box for cold) allows quick switching, instead of waiting for a single one to charge. 

Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • This item was added in the Doorway to Adventure update.
  • The Thermal Stone was renamed from Heat Stone to best fit its functionality in the Reign of Giants DLC, since it can also be used to cool the player.
  • In the final release of the DLC, Where there's a Wilson..., the Thermal Stone received a new, cleaner asset for when it is at minimum temperature. Also in this update, the minimum temperature for the Thermal Stone was set to 25 in the Summer, solving the previous issue where holding a frozen Thermal Stone would cause freezing damage in the Summer.

Mosquito Bugs Edit

  • A Dropped Thermal Stone can be used to dry off a player with as much efficiency as a fire. As long as wetness is going down, the player can stand next to a thermal stone of any color to dry off quickly. This can help while using an Endothermic Fire, as it does not dry the player like a regular Fire.
  • In the console edition of Don't Starve Together, Thermal Stones sometimes may not heat up, even when placed next to a fire.
  • In Shipwrecked, placing a Thermal Stone in a Backpack can raise the player's temperature. [Verification Needed]
