Thulecite is a craftable Item found in the Ancient Tab. It requires 6 Thulecite Fragments and a Broken Ancient Pseudoscience Station to be crafted. Thulecite is generally acquired by destroying Ancient Statues and Ruins Sinkholes with a Pickaxe, Gunpowder etc., but they also have a 10% chance to be found in Ornate Chests and a 75% chance in Large Ornate Chests. Thulecite also can randomly drop when destroying Relics or damaging Ancient Pseudoscience Stations with a Hammer, Gunpowder etc. Like all items from the Ancient Tab, Thulecite cannot be prototyped and Characters always need to be near an Ancient Pseudoscience Station to craft them again.

Its main use is as a crafting material used to craft items in the Ancient Tab. It can also be used to repair a Broken Ancient Pseudoscience Station.

Since none of the objects that drop it respawn and Thulecite Fragments are not renewable, only a limited number of Thulecite can be acquired.

Reign of Giants icon Reign of GiantsEdit

In the Reign of Giants DLC, players have a small chance of finding Green Gems inside Tumbleweeds, thus making Thulecite renewable, since more Thulecite can be gained with the use of Construction Amulets and Deconstruction Staves as explained below.

Don't Starve Together icon Don't Starve TogetherEdit

In Don't Starve Together, Thulecite can be gathered in the Caves from Cave Holes by using The Lazy Forager.

Prototype Tips Edit

  • Although Green Gems are somewhat rare, it is possible to use a Construction Amulet to craft 5 Thulecite Suits for 15 Thulecite, then use a Deconstruction Staff on those 5 Thulecite Suits to get 30 Thulecite back for a profit of 13 Thulecite (the Amulet costs 2 Thulecite). This practice makes it possible to collect big amounts of Thulecite from a few Green Gems.
  • Slurtles, Snurtles and Rock Lobsters will attempt to eat dropped Thulecite, so players should be careful and collect all Thulecite before they successfully eat it. Slurtles will also attack a player holding Thulecite if there aren't any other minerals around for them to eat.
    • When a Slurtle or Snurtle has eaten 2 pieces of Thulecite they will produce Slurtle Slime. When players feed Thulecite to a Rock Lobster, they will become friendly and follow the player around for 3 minutes (6 Clock segments).
  • In the Reign of Giants DLC, Moleworms will attempt to eat dropped Thulecite. Since the former drops from the ceiling during Earthquakes, players have to be careful to not let them collect any Thulecite.

Placeholder Trivia Edit

  • Thulecite may have been based off of real-life mineral thulite, which is also a variety of zoisite.
  • Like much of the Ruins, Thulecite was inspired by the Cthulhu Mythos, and may have derived its name from the name of Cthulhu, an ancient god-like being associated with insanity, magic, abnormal geometry, and tentacles.
    • A secondary inspiration for the name may have come from Thule, a northern region in ancient geography that is usually described as being the farthest north one can travel. Later, writers would use the term Ultima Thule to describe something far off and unattainable. This is more than likely inspiration for Thulecite's status as an endgame material.
  • The material itself is quite similar in color and use to the "Dwarven Metal" that is found in the Elder Scrolls series, as both the Dwemer and the Ancient Civilization used their own material (Dwarven metal for the Dwemer, and Thulecite for the ancient), and when they became extinct, their respective material were left behind and could be used by those who found their ruins. This is perhaps unsurprising, as it is a believable explanation for the rarity of the resources required for rare elite items.
