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. It is crafted using Flint instead of Papyrus as well. 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.
