The Magnifying Glass is a craftable Item exclusive to the Hamlet DLC. It is found in the Treasure Hunting Tab, requires an Iron Ore, a Blue Gem and Twigs to craft, and an Alchemy Engine to prototype. It is also a starting item for Warbucks.
The Magnifying Glass can be used to light burnable objects on fire from a distance, however, its main purpose is to investigate Peculiar Objects and Suspicious Cracks in the Ancient Pig Ruins. After using a Magnifying Glass to investigate a Peculiar Object or Suspicious crack, the Character will state clearly whether or not the Object conceals an item or the Crack conceals a door to a hidden room. In the first case, destroying the Object (e.g. chopping down a Tree and digging up its stump or mining a Boulder) will reveal one of the following items:
- As applies to all items crafted in the Treasure Hunting Tab, Warbucks is also able to use the Magnifying Glass twice as many times as other Characters.
- Peculiar Objects are also found in Hamlet compatible Shipwrecked worlds.
