"The Tide has waned!"

The Tide is a Pre-Hardmode event which takes place in the Ocean. The Tide may begin once a player uses a Seabreak Pearl if the criteria stated below are met. This event introduces new enemies along with new drops. The event divides into 5 waves with each wave getting significantly difficult as you progress and with new enemies replacing previous ones in new waves.

During the event, its own music track Drowning Tides will play.

The criteria needed to begin The Tide are as follows:

  • The player must be in the Ocean.
  • There must be no Tide event already in progress.

Not fulfilling these requirements will notify the player by displaying "The Tide only ebbs by the calm of the sea." in the chat.

  • The event is completed when the player has defeated R'lyehian in the final wave, in which the status message, "The Tide has waned!" will appear and the event will end.


  • Tide enemies override the current biome's enemies in the same way as Meteor Heads.
  • The invasion will not prevent most other events, so it is possible to fight The Tide and a Boss at the same time. A Blood Moon or a Solar Eclipse may begin during The Tide, but their related enemies only spawn after The Tide has been defeated.
  • The Kakamora enemies heavily featured in the event are likely a reference to the characters of the same name in the 2016 Disney film Moana.


  • 1.4.2: Reworked event with a whole new wave system.
    • Added new Tide track.
    • Introduced new enemies, drops, and much more.
