The Compass is an item used to tell the orientation of the player. When examined, the player will state what direction they're facing (the camera is rotated with the E and Q buttons). The player will start out oriented Northeast.
Don't Starve Together Edit
In Don't Starve Together, the Compass is equipped in the hand slot and loses durability over time. Additionally, a small compass icon opens up above the hand slot showing the player the direction they are facing.
- The Compass was introduced in the It's not a rock! update.
- The Compass is used for determining direction and is one of the three instruments used for navigation by mariners. The other two instruments are a sextant and marine chronometer, used to measure positions and time, respectively.
- The Compass is made from gold, which makes it a Golden Compass. This may be a reference to the American edition of the first book of the famous His Dark Materials trilogy, by Philip Pullman, later made into a movie.
