Ghost Players or Ghost Characters appear whenever a player dies in Don't Starve Together . They can fly around and haunt objects. Ghost Players may resurrect themselves via Touch Stones , Meat Effigies , or Life Giving Amulets . Other players are able to resurrect them using a telltale heart . Wanda can also use Second Chance Watch to revive herself and other characters. They also emit just enough light to ward off Charlie .
In Survival Mode, if any players have died and become ghosts, a ghost icon will appear by all other players' Sanity meter and their Sanity will decrease by 3.3/min (0.055/sec) for every ghost. This penalty encourages the resurrection of fallen players. When all players have died and become ghosts, a 120 second timer will begin that will end the game and generate a new world (the timer will be reset back to 120 seconds if the server is shut down and then reconnected). If a Ghost Player revives (via Touch Stone for example) before the countdown ends, the world will continue.
In Wilderness Mode, the player respawns at a random location on the map after being killed, so ghosts do not appear in this mode.
In Endless Mode, the game will go on even when every player has become a ghost. Ghost Players will be able to revive at the Florid Postern for a maximum Health penalty. In addition, Ghost Players will not drain Sanity in this mode, unlike Survival mode.

Haunting [ ]
Haunting is an action that can only be performed by Ghost Players. It has a variety of different effects, depending on the entity that is being haunted.

How to revive yourself & others | don’t starve together guide.
While various revival methods exist, the best strategy is often to avoid death altogether. Staying alive not only saves resources but also keeps your progress uninterrupted. Careful planning, awareness of your surroundings, and understanding the risks associated with different areas are key to surviving in this challenging game.
How to Revive in Don't Starve Together
To revive in Don't Starve Together, choosing the right revival strategy is crucial. Each method has its benefits and drawbacks, and understanding these can significantly impact your survival and gameplay experience.
You can revive using the Telltale Heart crafted by another player, Touchstones found in the world for one-time use, the Life-Giving Amulet for self-revival, Meat Effigies that require health to craft, or character-specific methods like Wanda's Second Chance Watch.
Reviving in Don't Starve Together isn't without its costs. Your health drops to 50, hunger to two-thirds of its maximum, and sanity to half. These reductions challenge you to quickly stabilize your condition post-revival.
Using the portal or Telltale Heart for revival adds an extra layer of difficulty. You'll face an additional maximum health penalty, making survival post-revival even more challenging. This mechanic pushes you to strategize your revival methods carefully.
Using the Telltale Heart to Revive
The Telltale Heart is a craftable item that revives players. Crafting it costs three gears, one spider gland, and 40 of your health. When you revive someone with it, you gain a significant sanity boost of 80 points.
To use the Telltale Heart, another player must apply it to your ghost. This requirement adds a cooperative element to the revival process, emphasizing teamwork and player interaction. You cannot use the Telltale Heart on yourself, so having allies is crucial for this revival method.
Use Touch Stones to Revive
Touch Stones are scattered throughout the world, each offering a single-use revival opportunity. Once you use a Touchstone, it's gone for good, so plan your revivals strategically. Their limited nature makes them precious resources in your survival journey.
Despite their helpfulness, Touchstones have a significant limitation: they can only be used once per player. This constraint means you need to be mindful of when and how you use them, as they are not a reliable long-term revival solution.
Use Life-Giving Amulet to Revive
The Life-Giving Amulet is crafted using specific materials and can be a game-changer in revival scenarios. Unlike the Telltale Heart, it requires no other player to activate, giving you more control over your revival process.
This amulet stands out with its ability to put nearby mobs to sleep during your revival, providing a crucial window for escape or reorientation. It's a powerful tool that offers significant advantages, especially in hostile environments.
Use Meat Effigy to Revive
The Meat Effigy, another revival option, demands a portion of your health for its creation. Each Effigy requires a sacrifice of 40 health points, making its use a careful balance between risk and reward.
Once crafted, the Meat Effigy becomes your resurrection point. You automatically attune to the nearest Effigy upon death. However, remember to create and attune to a new Effigy before your next demise to ensure continuous revival capability. This method provides a more reliable, albeit health-costly, revival strategy compared to other options.
Use Wanda's Second Chance Watch to Revive
Wanda's Second Chance Watch offers a distinct revival method exclusive to her character. This tool allows for immediate revival without the need for external assistance.
Crafting the watch is relatively easy and cost-effective. However, it comes with a cooldown period of four minutes. This cooldown adds a strategic element to its use, requiring you to time your revivals wisely.
A significant risk with this watch is that it revives you at your point of death. If you died in a dangerous situation, you would be resurrected right back into it. This feature demands careful consideration of where and when you might face peril.
Different characters in Don't Starve Together have unique traits that affect their revival. For instance, Wilson loses his beard upon death, impacting his insulation and beard hair resource. Weber and WX face similar losses, like circuits, which are integral to their abilities.
These character-specific considerations require you to play strategically, keeping in mind what you might lose upon death and how it affects your gameplay.
Survival Mode vs. Endless Mode
In Survival Mode, you face a critical two-minute timer upon death. If you and your teammates all perish, you have only this brief window to revive before the game ends. This mode demands quick thinking and fast action in dire situations.
Endless Mode offers a more forgiving approach. Here, the Florid Postern serves as an infinite revival point. Even if your entire team falls, you can keep coming back without the stress of a countdown. This mode allows for a more relaxed playstyle, focusing on exploration and experimentation without the fear of abrupt game over.

Don't Starve Together: How To Respawn
Respawning in Don't Starve Together can make or break the party's game, and thankfully there a few ways to do this
Survival games are ruthless in many ways. From keeping up with character’s health and hunger to fending off potentially dangerous foes that are traversing through the unknown land, players face many dangers. Even by eating some unknown food could send players to their death. Thankfully, not all survival games are cold-hearted, some allow players to come back quickly without restarting everything they worked so hard to make.
Related: Don't Starve Together: How To Get Spools
Don’t Starve Together has created one of these luxuries. Respawning is a great asset for this game, especially when the map is so large and making progress can be difficult depending on the game settings. However, there are only a few ways players can respawn, or resurrect, so watching out for key items is crucial. While Don’t Starve Together has created a hard game to challenge players, they also understand the frustration of making so much progress, only to have everything fall apart because they walked a little too long in the dark or waited a little too much to stock up on food.
Resurrecting, or respawning, in Don't Starve Together is different from its single player game. In Don't Starve , players will automatically resurrect if there is something the character has interacted with or is wearing that allows them to do so. However, in the multiplayer game, players will turn into a ghost upon dying , and will need to either wait for the party to help them, or travel around the map to find a respawn location.
When all players turn to ghosts, they will have 120 seconds to either find a respawn location or they will start over in a new generated map. For those playing with the Endless mode, there is a structure called the Florid Postern that ghosts can go to for respawning .
These structures are found throughout the map. Unlike Don't Starve , these touchstones are already activated around the map. And thankfully, a Touchstone can be used multiple times by different players, however, the same player cannot use a Touchstone multiple times .
Related: Don’t Starve Together: How To Increase Sanity
The Stones will grow white if it is ready to be used, and if they are not glowing, it will need to regenerate before use. Thankfully, it does have a quick regeneration time. The Stones will also give Nightmare Fuel and Marble after resurrecting someone.
Life Giving Amulet
While the single player games automatically respawns characters if worn, the multiplayer game does not. Ghosts will have to haunt a dropped Amulet in order to be resurrected . Note that, unlike the single player game, if the Amulet drops in the water, it will sink to the bottom, not allowing players to respawn over water.
Second Chance Watch
This watch is crafted by Wanda. When dying and if she crafted this item, it will be dropped for her to haunt. She can also craft this item to revive other ghost characters as well.
When ghost characters are resurrected, they will instantly be teleported and revived at the location of death , making it easier to grab all of their inventory items without getting lost. To craft this, Wanda will need 1 Time Piece, 2 Living Logs and 4 Bone Shards.
To craft these Effigy's, players will need 4 Boards, 4 Beard Hairs and 40 Health. Many Effigy's can be made, however, players need to make sure to attune their Effigy to themselves, allowing only them to use it . Attuning it will cost the 40 Health mentioned.
As a ghost character, players will need to click the button on the top right that says "Activate Meat Effigy". If there is an Effigy attuned to players, they will not be able to activate a Touchsone.
Specifically for Don't Starve Together , this Heart can be crafted to revive ghost characters. By combining 3 Cut Grass and 1 Spider Gland, the character who crafted it will instantly lose 40 Health , but will be able to revive their partner.
Related: Don’t Starve Together: How To Farm
Thankfully, if players don't have enough health to give, they will be lowered to 1 point, meaning they will be very vulnerable, but crafting it will not kill them. After giving the ghost the Heart, the player who is alive will receive 80 Sanity. To give it to a ghost character, simply hold it and left-click the ghost.
While resurrecting is always a great tool to keep the party going to complete the game, there are some penalties that players will face each time they are brought back to life. While the positive of being alive again certainly outweighs the punishment, keep in mind that players do not come back at 100% like they started the game with.
Characters Health begins at 50, their Hunger is set 2/3 of the maximum for that character, and Sanity is set at ½ of the maximum for that character. And since players drop all their inventory when dying, their inventory will be empty, and players must find their spot of death to regain their items.
For players who are using Telltale Hearts and do not want to the penalty or removing additional health after revive, this is an added crafting recipe that can help give them the extra boost they need to get back into gear. By combining 8 Rot, 2 Nitre, and 1 Stinger, the revived player can use this on themselves and gain their maximum Health .
Don't Starve Together is available on PlayStation 4, macOS, Xbox One, Linux, Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows.

Death, Resurrection & Ghost Guide | Don’t Starve & DST
Last Updated January 4, 2021 By Johnny Salib / FlamingGaymer Leave a Comment
There are plenty of ways players can die while playing Don’t Starve and Don’t Starve Together, including being attacked by Mobs, starving to death, freezing to death or overheating. Although death can very much feel like the end of the game when playing any version of Don’t Starve , resurrection and getting back into the Don’t Starve grind is a lot easier then it comes while in the multiplayer-realms of Don’t Starve Together .
The following guide will take you through all the different ways players will find themselves dying, how they can prevent death and the ways they can resurrect in each version of Don’t Starve . This guide will also take you through all the most useful uses of being a Ghost in Don’t Starve Together , so if you’ve got a group of friends who are constantly dead, you want to pay very close attention!
MOST COMMON FORMS OF DEATH
One of the best ways to equip yourself for survival is by avoiding things that can kill you or taking the proper measurements to protect yourself by being one-shotted by them. The number one solution to resurrecting yourself is making sure that you don’t die in the first place, especially in single-player Don’t Starve as upon death, a player’s world will cease to exist.
While it’s clear that one of the primary ways of death players can experience is through starvation, there are a number of causes of death that aren’t as straight forward as others. In my experience, I tend to die from the obscure ways of death much more frequently than the more “dangerous” straight forward ways of death, thus making me one of the players who should have read a bit more before starting to play Don’t Starve .
The following are the most common and sometimes even shocking ways players can expect to die in all versions of Don’t Starve:
Every character is prone to starvation in Don’t Starve though players may want to avoid characters like Wes and Wolfgang for their increased Hunger or even take is as far as avoiding Winona , since she loses Hunger for crafting and Wigfrid , who cannot eat anything without Meat.
Characters who don’t seem to have problems when it comes to food include Wickerbottom , who can make food grow with Applied Horticulture, Wurt (DST) , who, while being vegetarian gains more stats from foods and Wortox (DST) , who can eat the souls dropped by felled Mobs. Players can also choose to be Warly (SW & DST) , who arrives into The Constant with a Portable Crock Pot and has a higher amount of Hunger, however, his challenge is that he cannot eat non-Crock Pot foods. Players can also choose to play Wagstaff , who comes with a variety of downfalls, though players will have access to 225 Hunger.
To avoid starvation, players should regularly munch on snacks such as seeds, carrots (especially in DST) or fruits and veggies like Pumpkin, which can often provide a big chunk of Hunger without the need of using a Crock Pot . Players may be quick to dispose of foods that provide low amounts of Hunger, but whether you’re a new player or an old player, munching on small snacks will always be helpful when tithing you until your next Crock Pot meal.
After setting up my farms and getting enough Dragon Fruit seeds from birds in Birdcages , I will eat regular seeds upon picking them up. I will also pick up any seeds I see on the ground while travelling just so I don’t waste them. Might as well eat the seeds, or a bird will, which serves no benefit to you.
If starvation doesn’t kill you on your first day of survival, there is a big chance that nightfall will be your initial demise. The Constant has three times of day, being Daytime, Dusk and Night. During Night, players will not be able to see anything, and in Don’t Starve Together players will not be able to interact with any resources, such as bushes, without light; though, in single-player Don’t Starve , players will be able to interact with resources in the dark, while still at risk of dying.
But Johnny, how does one die in the darkness? Well, secretly lurking in the Darkness is Maxwell’s love interest, Charlie, who spoiler alert is also Winona’s sister. Oh? That’s not how you’re supposed to do a spoiler alert? Aw well.
Upon being in complete darkness for between 5-10 seconds, players will receive damage from Charlie in the form of a hit, dealing 100 damage and 20 Sanity loss. To avoid being attacked by Charlie, players must use a light source like a Torch or Fire Pit.
The only character who is a bit safer from the wrath of Charlie is Winona who gets a damage-free hit every time she gets attacked for the first time in the darkness.
DEATH BY BOOMERANG
It’s going to be very tempting to craft yourself a Boomerang while playing any version of Don’t Starve , especially if you are a player who is struggling with food.
Boomerangs can be prototyped using an Alchemy Engine and require 1 Boards, 1 Silk, and 1 Charcoal to craft.
Most notably, Boomerangs are useful for killing birds and other small Mobs in one-hit. The only catch to using a Boomerang is, if the player does not catch it by using their action key upon the return of the Boomerang, players will receive some damage. If players are too low on health or are not wearing any armour, players will be at risk of an early and gruesome death.
Trust me, you’re going to want to practice using a Boomerang with high health before crafting one because damn is it annoying when you kill yourself after 40 days because you stupidly forgot to catch a Boomerang. My biggest advice is, build yourself armour like a Log Suit as soon a possible, especially if you’re going to use a Boomerang.
BEING TOSSED AROUND BY MOBS
Another obvious form of death is by being killed or attacked by Mobs. While Mobs come in a variety of forms, it’s important to note certain Mobs as they are more aggressive than others.
Mobs players will want to make sure they note as quickly as possible are Treeguards , which spawn from chopping down enough trees; Tentacles, which hide in the swamp until idled on top of; Hounds, which come every few days in waves; Pigs, which are usually docile, but will attack players in swarms once one is attacked or if the player is a Monster like Webber , Wurt or Wortox; and Merms, who also live in the swamp and are much like Pigs, though they attack all players except for Wurt.
The reason I bring up the Mobs above is due to the fact that they tend to sneak up on players in the worst times, especially Hounds and Tentacles. Although I recommend revealing the whole map within the first few days of exploration, I would recommend taking it slow in the Swamps and Rockylands especially if you spot a Hound Mound.
Hound Mounds are by far the most challenging types of “spawners” in the Don’t Starve world, as they will spawn an unlimited amount of Hounds over the course of the day. The only time Hound Mounds will not spawn Hounds is if they are destroyed, which is obviously not ideal for players who hope to farm Hounds in the late-game.
OVERHEATING & FREEZING
Depending on which version of Don’t Starve you’re playing, players will become vulnerable to both the heat and cold. Most notable in Winter and Summer , players will have to carry a Thermal Stone or clothing to combat the weather and make sure their temperature doesn’t drop too low or get too high.
A player will notice that they are Overheating when their screen gets bordered with red or Freezing when their screen is bordered with blue. In both cases, players will see a steady decline in Health and should stand either next to an Endothermic Fire Pit or regular Fire Pit depending on the season.
BEING SET ON FIRE
There are a few Mobs out there in The Constant who are troubling and will set you on fire, though in many early cases being caught on fire is self-inflicted. Players who stand too close to burning structures or resources will catch on fire and will either need to be put out or players will have to suffer through taking a bit of damage before the fire puts itself out.
Things to keep in mind when it comes to Fire are that Campfires (not to be mistaken for Fire Pits, which have stones to keep the fire in) that are too big will set nearby structures and resources on fire and that you have to be extra careful when trying to burn down trees with a Torch as fires spread very quickly. Players should also be careful when using magic weapons such as the Fire Staff as it can be easy to misclick and set everything on fire.
The oddest mistake many players make is lighting a Beefalo on fire while trying to sheer them with a razor. If players find themselves lighting Beefalo on fire regularly, craft yourself a Lantern or place a Fire Pit to light up the area instead. I personally sheer all Beefalo quickly and pick up all of the Beefalo Wool in the Daytime to ensure that I don’t mistakenly strike a Beefalo with a Torch by pressing the action key too close to the Beefalo. *sigh* dumb ways to die!
PICKING A SPIKY BUSH & CACTUS
A really frustrating way to die early on in the game is by picking a Spiky Bush or Cactus. In my first week of playing Don’t Starve, I died by trying to pick a Cactus, because I wanted to get back my Sanity, forgetting that each time you pick a Cactus (without armour) it causes 6 damage. Let me tell you, I Alt+F4’d immediately and debated uninstalling Don’t Starve, because I can be a rage-quit baby.
I would recommend avoiding using Spiky Bushes as your main source of Twigs, especially if you’re a new player who isn’t comfortable managing their health . Taking damage from Spiky Bushes, Cacti and other sharp resources can be avoided by either wearing a Bramble Husk, supplied by the ever-adorable Wormwood or Cactus Armor, which can be built only in Shipwrecked .
EATING BAD FOODS
Unless you have a mod running, chances are you’re either attempting to remember how much Hunger or Health a food item gives you, or you’re eating anything that you can to keep yourself alive.
Well, there are some foods I would highly recommend you stay away from and those include:
Raw Monster Meat (-20 Health)
Cooked Monster Meat (-3 Health)
Monster Lasagna (-20 Health)
Hot Dragon Chilli Salad (-3 Health)
Powdercake (-3 Health)
Raw Cactus Flesh (-3 Health)
Rot (-1 Health)
Raw Red Cap (-20 Health)
Cooked Green Cap (-1 Health)
Cooked Blue Cap (-3 Health)
Pepper (-20 Health)
Cooked Pepper (-3 Health)
Potato (-3 Health)
Although many foods of the foods above only cause small amounts of Health loss, eating multiple pieces can be the end of a player. In general, it’s a good idea to avoid eating all raw foods, especially Mushrooms. Mushrooms have been the end of my friends and family a number of times, and while Mushrooms can be helpful for a variety of purposes , they can be detrimental for new players.
As mentioned, if you want a safe snack, you should stick to seeds, carrots or other safe veggies.
EARTHQUAKES IN CAVES
If you’re low on health while spelunking in the Caves, it’s a very good idea to make sure that you always have some extra armour or some foods that can heal you.
While Earthquakes are a bit sporadic, they can be fatal to players who are low on health or don’t realize they must dodge the falling rocks.
RAIN & LIGHTNING
Unshockingly, Rain and Lightning can both lead to various forms of death. While playing the base game of Don’t Starve , players will not have as much of a problem dealing with rain, though in all other versions of Don’t Starve (DST, HAM, SW & RoG) players will have to watch over the Wetness Meter which begins to show during rainfall, if the player has drowned or with other means. Let’s focus on the Rain and Lighting though.
In Don’t Starve Together and Reign of Giants players will have a chance to freeze if their temperature falls below 0. Well, at half Wetness, a player’s temperature will reduce by 15 degrees, ultimately raising the chances of freezing earlier than expected. Players should take off their clothes, no jokes, and stand by a Fire Pit to dry off.
Alternatively, players can also use the Eyebrella, which can be made using the Deerclops Eyeball to avoid being struck by Lighting and avoid Wetness by 100%.
Players using the character WX-78 will have to be extra careful in the rain, as WX-78 takes incremental-immediate damage when wet .
Now, as for Lightning, players who are struck by Lightning will take 10-20 damage from a player’s health depending on how wet the player is. As mentioned, players can use the Eyebrella to protect themselves from Lighting or can stand next to Lightning Rods. There are a few other objects that will protect from Lighting, however the other stats these items provide are much lesser than the Eyebrella.
HOW DO I RESURRECT IN DON’T STARVE ?
Ressurection works very differently in single-player and multiplayer Don’t Starve . It’s no secret that single-player is a much more difficult game to play than Don’t Starve Together and that’s because, even if you die in multiplayer, as long as there is another player on the server and it is either set to Survival or Endless, players will always be able to resurrect.
In most cases of resurrection, players will come back to life with 50 Health, 2/3 their maximum Health and 1/2 their maximum Sanity. Players will also have an empty inventory, though their items can be found at their place of death.
The following are all of the ways players can resurrect themselves in the various versions of Don’t Starve . Note that in Don’t Starve Together players must either set their worlds to Survival or Endless if they wish to resurrect.
The most important method of resurrection players should be aware of is the Touch Stone.
Touch Stones are structures that are found in various locations on the map and are surrounded by 4 Pig Heads and commonly placed on Wooden Flooring.
In single-player, players must activate Touch Stones by either clicking on it or interacting with it with their action button. Upon activating the Touch Stone it will appear that the Touch Stone rises from the ground, ultimately making that Touch Stone useable.
Upon death, players will immediately be resurrected by the nearest Touch Stone, causing Lightning to strike the Touch Stone, ultimately breaking the Touch Stone and providing the player with 2 Rocks, 2 Marble and a piece a Nightmare Fuel .
Players will not be able to re-use a Touch Stone, however players can activate multiple Touch Stones without any penalties.
Touch Stones will act the same way in Reign of Giants, Hamlet and Shipwrecked , however, work differently in Don’t Starve Together .
In Don’t Starve Together all Touch Stones found on the map will be spawned into The Constant already activated. So, once players become Ghosts, they must locate a Touch Stone and ultimately haunt the Touch Stone to activate it.
Upon using the Touch Stone, that player will no longer be able to said Touch Stone, however, other players will be able to use said Touch Stone after a short period of time.
Similar to single-player, players will receive Marble and Nightmare Fuel, all while the Touch Stone is struck by Lightning.
If players are uncertain whether or not they used a Touch Stone, they will be able to quickly identify its use by whether or not the sigil on the Touch Stone is glowing. If the sigil is glowing, hop on and get resurrected, but if it’s not, you’re out of luck and will have to use another method of resurrection.
It is important to note that there are no Touch Stones in Caves or the Ruins in single-player Don’t Starve; however , there are Touch Stones in Caves in Don’t Starve Together .
Although not as useful in Don’t Starve Together , Meat Effigies are going to be the primary way players resurrect themselves in single-player Don’t Starve .
Meat Effigies require a Prestihatitator to prototype and will need 4 Boards, 4 Beard Hairs and 4 Meat to craft.
The most notable resource players need to construct the Meat Effigy is Beard Hair. Beard Hair can either be collected by shaving Wilson’s beard or can be collected from Beardlings or Beardlords (Rabbits and Bunnymen) when the player is below a certain amount of Sanity .
It’s important to note that upon constructing a Meat Effigy, players will sacrifice 30 Health permanently until the player has consumed the Meat Effigy or the Meat Effigy is destroyed. The permanent reduction in Health will be made known by the player’s Health gauge being blacked out by 30 Health.
Most characters will only be able to craft 5 Meat Effigies at a time, though the reality is that players will not need that many Meat Effigies in the first place. I personally build one Meat Effigy at a time when playing single-player but leave all of the resources required to build another in nearby Chests. My reason for doing not constructing extra Meat Effigies is to ensure that I always have as much Health as I can have so there’s less of a chance I’m going to actually need to rely on said Effigies.
Alternatively, players can craft said Meat Effigies and leave them in their inventory as players will only receive the Health penalty once an Effigy is placed.
It is important to note that players will resurrect by the nearest resurrection platform in Don’t Starve , so if you’ve already activated a Touch Stone and have a Meat Effigy out, you may consume the Touch Stone before the Meat Effigy. If you are concerned about using up all of your Touch Stones, as they are most useful as a last resort, build a Meat Effigy closer to where you are or in between you and an active Touch Stone.
In Don’t Starve Together players will have to use 4 Boards, 4 Beard Hairs and 40 Health to craft the Meat Effigy, however, players will not receive a maximum Health penalty from crafting said Meat Effigies. Also unlike single-player Don’t Starve , players will not automatically resurrect when a Meat Effigy is constructed. Instead, players will have to hit the “Activate Meat Effigy” button that is found on the top-right of their screen.
Also unlike Don’t Starve , in Don’t Starve Together players will only be able to build themselves 1 Meat Effigy at a time, so there is no real need to stockpile on the resources for Meat Effigies… though truthfully, I’ve never built myself a Meat Effigy in Don’t Starve Together , which I’ll cover why late.
LIFE GIVING AMULET
We’ve recently covered the beauty of the Life Giving Amulet in my Nightmare Fue l post, but in short, players can use a Prestihatitator along with 3 Gold Nuggets, 2 Nightmare Fuel and 1 Red Gem to craft themselves this powerful magic item.
Upon reaching 0 Health, players who are wearing the Life Giving Amulet will resurrect player, though in Don’t Starve Together players will have to haunt the Life Giving Amulet in order to resurrect themselves.
Although more expensive, the Life Giving Amulet tends to be the better choice when it comes to resurrecting as it also provides players with 2 Sanity per minute. Players will also receive 5 Health for the cost of 5 Hunger + 5% durability if the players are below their maximum Health. Players are recommended to use the Life Giving Amulet for healing until it reaches only 5% durability as it will still resurrect a player when it loses its durability. The most important thing is to make sure that the Life Giving Amulet doesn’t break before you die. That would be bad.
TELLTALE HEART (DON’T STARVE TOGETHER)
Remember when I said Meat Effigies are useless in Don’t Starve Together ? Well, it’s because Don’t Starve Together sees the addition of the Telltale Heart.
Telltale Hearts are always available and require 3 Cut Grass, 1 Spider Gland and 40 Health to craft. Telltale Hearts do come with a couple of catches though, being that a player who is alive must revive the ghost player and players who are resurrected will permanently lose 25% of their health until they are given a Booster Shot (8 Rot, 2 Nitre, and 1 Stinger).
The reality is that Booster Shots aren’t much of an ordeal to construct, though it can be annoying to walk around with a chunk of your Health missing. It is nice to have a really cheap way to revive though.
As a bonus, players who revive ghost players will receive 80 Sanity. Awesome perk, tbh.
FLORID POSTERN (DON’T STARVE TOGETHER)
The absolute best way players can revive themselves while playing Don’t Starve Together is by using the Florid Postern. The Florid Postern will only be able to revive players if they have set their game mode to Endless and upon being haunted the player will be resurrected with the regular penalties plus the same penalty as the Telltale Heart (25% of their maximum Health).
If you’re on a server with many players, it’s a good idea to keep a number of Booster Shots in your base or by the Floral Postern, as it will be useful for getting your Health up quickly.
If the Florid Postern is turned into the Celestial Portal, players will still be able to resurrect with it, even when under construction.
PUTTING BEING A GHOST TO USE (DON’T STARVE TOGETHER)
To close off this guide, I want to say that being a Ghost isn’t useless. Upon death, you can help your fellow players in a variety of ways without being resurrected. The following are the best ways players can help their fellow teammates:
GETTING EVIL FLOWERS WHERE THERE ARE NONE
For players struggling to farm Nightmare Fuel , look no further than being a Ghost. Players have a 50% chance to change regular flowers into Evil Flowers (or Petals into Dark Petals, though not as useful).
It is recommended that players haunt a few regular flowers in order to create Evil Flowers as Evil Flowers release more Butterflies and if players have enough Evil Flowers, homeless Bees will be able to spawn in more .
CHANGING THE COLOUR OF RESOURCES (HOUNDS & MUSHROOMS)
One of my favourite uses of being a ghost is changing Hounds into other colours in hopes of grinding out the Gems that you want. Whether you need more Blue Gems for Ice Staves or Red Gems for Fire Staves, players may want to ensure that all of the Hounds that are spawned are elemental to get as many Gems as they can get at a time.
Upon haunting a Hound there is a 50% change the hound will change colours, regenerating said Hound’s Health and also causing it to panic after the transformation.
Players will also have a 25% chance to change the colour of a Mushroom that is in the ground. Players are recommended to change all of their Mushrooms to Green Mushrooms as they are the most useful, though I recommend reading my guide to see if Green Mushrooms are the best for you .
CHANGING BLUEPRINTS INTO OTHER BLUEPRINTS
A very underrated use of being a ghost is to change the type of Blueprints you have at your disposal. Haunting a Blueprint has a 50% chance of turning into a random Blueprint that can be made using the same tab. So, if you have a Lazy Deserter Blueprint, you have a chance of getting another magic Blueprint.
I’ll be honest in saying that I’ve been sitting on 8 Lazy Deserter Blueprints and I completely forgot I could change them into more useful Blueprints… *sigh* Off to logging onto the server!
FEEDING THE CROPS
If you’re really bored as a ghost and have nothing better to do, I would recommend chilling by your farm and helping the plants grow. Every time players haunt a crop, the crop will grow as if it was fertilized by a piece of Rot.
In saying that, players will also cause the Farm to lose fertilzation meaning that once the player is resurrected, they may want to put some Rot or Manure onto the farm to re-fertilize it.
UNCOVERING SUSPICIOUS DIRT PILES
I’ll be honest in saying that I’m not the biggest fan of Suspicious Dirt Piles and going on “the hunt.” I quite frankly always ask other members of the server to do hunts or more often I will set up other farms to ensure that we don’t need to hunt unless trying to find the Ewecus.
For players who rely on hunts for food and other resources, ghost players can travel around uncovering the Suspicious Dirt Piles until ultimately resurrected.
SUMMONING OR EMPOWERING MOBS
Players can choose to haunt a Rabbit Hole or Moleworm Burrow if they want to release the Rabbit or Moleworm inside. Note that if there is no Rabbit or Moleworm in the hole, haunting it will do nothing.
A mechanic I tend to forget about is the ability to both fuel Pig Torches, effectively spawning a Guardian Pig if one is not already out, or having a 25% chance to turn any Pigs into Werepigs.
Pigs who are transformed into Werepigs will be permanently stuck in a panic state, making it one of the best and safest ways to collect a supply of Meat and Pig Skin.
Players will have a 50% chance of summoning creatures from Beehives, Killer Bee Hives, Hound Mounds, Rundown Houses (Mermhouse/Merm Huts), Splumonkey Pods and Spider Dens. If players Haunt a Tier 3 Spider Den they will also have a 10% chance to spawn in the Spider Queen.
Rock Lobsters have a 25% chance to grow by 500 seconds once haunted by a ghost.
Players have a 0.1% chance of turning Evergreen trees into Treeguards and Birchnut Trees into Poison Birchnut Trees.
LIGHTING CAMPFIRE & FIRE PITS
It can be really frustrating when players return to base only to die to the Darkness, well, players can help avoid this by haunting both Fire Pits or Campfires.
Campfires have a 25% chance of receiving 7.5 seconds of fuel, while Fire Pits have a 10% chance of receiving 15 seconds of fuel. Although not the most beneficial amount of fuel, players can scurry to their bases to help get things started so when their teammates arrive to resurrect them, they already have a roaring fire to settle by.
USING WEAPONS ON THE GROUND OR ATTACKING MOBS
Although I don’t consider it a great perk, players have a 10% chance of chilling all nearby enemies with an Ice Staff and a 25% chance of chilling enemies with a Chilled Amulet. Although this can be helpful in tough situations such as Hound Waves, it’s not a reliable perk.
Players have a 10% chance to use a Telelocator Staff, ultimately transporting the nearest Mob that isn’t a Ghost, a 10% chance to spawn a Dwarf Star with a Star Caller Staff and a 10% chance to use a Deconstruction Staff on a nearby object/structure.
Players will have a 25% chance of making Mosquitoes explode, which is pretty useless.
Most notably, players have a 75% chance to reset Tooth Traps and Wormwood’s Bramble Traps .
CHOPPING DOWN TREES
Although I wouldn’t recommend it, players can haunt trees to cut them down. Each time a player haunts the tree it acts as one swing by a regular Axe.

How To Revive In Don't Starve Together
In Don't Starve Together, death isn't the end; instead, there are numerous methods you can use to revive your character, or your friends' characters, to make sure that your adventure doesn't end prematurely. But how do you come back from the dead using items? Thankfully, the secret to resurrection is a simpler process than it might seem.
Keep reading for our complete guide on how to revive dead players in Don't Starve Together, so you can come back from the afterlife and continue on your quest to survive with friends.
Table of Contents
Use touch stones, use life giving amulet, craft a meat effigy, how to revive a friend in don't starve together.
How to Revive Dead Players in Don't Starve Together
Thankfully, there are multiple ways to revive yourself in Don't Starve Together using items. It's a good idea to craft some items to help you revive long before you die, so you'll have them ready and on hand when and if you do.
Touch Stones are the only way to revive in Don't Starve Together that does not require the player to craft anything. To revive using a Touch Stone, you'll have to find one of the several ones around each map and simply float over it as a ghost. You can only revive once at each Touch Stone, so if you end up dying again, you'll need to try one of the other methods on this list or locate another Touch Stone.
Amulets are another method to bring yourself back to life in Don't Starve Together. To revive using the Life Giving Amulet, just craft it and float over it, just as you did with the Touch Stones.
Here's what you'll need to craft a Life Giving Amulet:
- 2 Nightmare Fuel
- 3 Gold Nuggets
Like all other revive items except the Touch Stones, you'll need to craft the Meat Effigy if you want to use it to bring yourself back. Also like those other items, to use it, all you need to do is float through it as a ghost.
You'll need the following ingredients to make your own Meat Effigy:
- 4 Beard Hairs
The only method to revive your friends in Don't Starve Together is to use the Telltale Heart. To make it, you'll need:
- 1 Spider Gland
- 3 Cut Grass
Next, you'll just need to approach the ghost of the dead player and interact with them to bring them back.
While this is a great method to bring friends back into the game who don't have another way to come back on their own, it isn't exactly foolproof. Once you come back after being resurrected by the Telltale Heart, your health will be decreased by 25%, making it hard to find your footing and remain alive in the long run. It will also steal 40 HP from the player who made it, which isn't ideal, but either way, it's certainly better than being dead that's for sure.
Those are all of the methods you can use to bring yourself back from the dead, or revive friends, in Don't Starve Together. Now that you know all of the different ways you can bring your character back, you can use whichever one is optimal for the situation at hand.

How to revive yourself in Don’t Starve
Death is not the end!
- April 9, 2022
- Don't Starve Together Guides
Image via Klei
Death is a constant companion in Don’t Starve, as every playthrough will eventually end. It’s abrupt, and will often happen out of nowhere, but it will always get you. Don’t get dismayed, though, as you are meant to die. Don’t Starve is a challenging survival game that hinges on the mechanic of permadeath and consequence. However, death is not always final as there is more than one way you can cheat on your trip to the afterlife.
Revival works three different ways in the base Don’t Starve game, and the multiplayer version Don’t Starve Together. In the base game, death is final if you haven’t prepared for its inevitable coming. All forms of resurrection require magic or magical intervention (as most things do in Don’t Starve), so you’ll need to build a presthatitator. The presthatitator only takes four rabbits, four wooden boards, and one top hat to craft, so you can do it reasonably soon during your run.
Once you have your presthatitator, you can craft a life-giving amulet. The life-giving amulet is a torso clothing option that you need to be wearing at the time of death for it to work. Luckily, the resources needed to craft the amulet are simple enough to gather, as it will require four gold, two nightmare fuel, and one red gem.
Gold can be acquired from rocks or by giving meat to the Pig King, nightmare fuel can be crafted by gathering enough evil flowers, which spawn worldwide, and red gems can be found by digging up graves or killing red hounds. Bring these ingredients to your presthatitator, and you’ll be able to craft your life-giving amulet. Remember to wear it, though, even if death may not be on your mind.
The next item that will bring you back to life is a meat effigy, which is easiest to build if you’re playing as Wilson, as it requires four beard hairs, four cooked pieces of meat, and four boards. The boards you craft from wood, and the meat you can get from killing pig men, catcoons, or beefalo. Like the life-giving amulet, you’ll need to be around your presthatitator to craft the meat effigy. Using this method to revive yourself will take thirty points of your maximum health away, so be wary of how often you use it.
The third and final way to revive yourself is through resurrection stones — random set pieces that will spawn across the world of Don’t Starve. It’s a simple slab of rock surrounded by four pig men heads on spikes. These require no crafting, and you’ll be transported to them the second you die. If you’re in winter, it may be good to build a chest with some logs and warm clothing so that you don’t instantly freeze to death upon spawn. Resurrection stones are destroyed upon use, so you don’t want to abuse them.
Don’t Starve Together
Death works a bit differently in Don’t Starve Together, as it is not exactly the end of your playthrough. Instead of getting a classic game over, you turn into a ghost and can still move around the map.
When your character turns into a ghost, you can haunt particular objects. You will be revived when haunting the objects mentioned above: the life-giving amulet, the meat effigy, or a touchstone. There is also a fourth means of revival, though, the Telltale Heart. The Telltale Heart is a survival item that is built with four pieces of grass, one spider gland, and a forty-point deduction to your health permanently. As with the other resurrection items, you’ll also have to haunt the Telltale Heart.
Death is something you’ll always have to worry about in Don’t Starve, as you can freeze, burn, get crushed by rocks, be killed by spiders, and, as the title says, even starve. But is it not the end if you prepare for its eventual coming. Just make sure you use this guide as a contingency plan for your demise.

Don’t Starve Together: How to Revive
Don’t Starve Together includes many complex mechanics that players can use to survive in the harsh world. In Don’t Starve, when you die, you lose it all. To create an environment for players to learn the game, there’s a way for players to revive if they die. Here’s our guide on how to revive in Don’t Starve Together.
How to Revive in Don’t Starve Together
If you manage to survive for many days in the harsh and cruel world of Don’t Starve Together, it can be very frustrating to die. Luckily, you have a few options available at your disposal to revive and keep progressing in your save.
Here are a few things to know before diving in:
- All revive options are at specific locations and require prior interaction BEFORE dying.
- Reviving has a “Resurrection Penalty” that negatively impacts you
- When you revive, you spawn WITHOUT items
All the revive options spawn in random locations, so make sure you know where you are when you revive so you don’t die again instantly and lose your save. Also, since you’re spawning without items when you revive, don’t start the resurrection process at midnight just to instantly die because you had no light source.
And finally, keep in mind the season your world currently is in. If you respawn without items in the middle of the winter, you will die of cold. Make sure to place some useful items like a chest with basic resources, a fireplace, or a thermal stone around your resurrection locations.
Haunt the Florid Postern (Only available in Endless mode)
The Florid Postern is the gate that spawns you into the world of Don’t Starve Together when you start a new save, and it’s also a place you can revive at. If you die in the endless mode, you spawn as a ghost. Since the Florid Postern is the first thing you interact with in the world, it will be marked on your map.
Just navigate to the Postern as a ghost and haunt it, and you will respawn. Respawning with the Florid Postern does not require any additional resources, you can just interact with it and you will respawn.
When you use the Florid Postern, besides the Resurrection Penalty debuff, you will receive a -25% on your Base HP. To recover from this, you’ll need to craft a booster shot and use it to heal. Keep in mind that this is only available in the Endless mode of Don’t Starve.
Touch Stones are scattered throughout the world at random locations. To activate a touch stone, simply interact with it while you are alive. When you are dead, you’ll have to make your way from the place of your demise to the nearest touch stone that you have activated.
This is why touch stones are a much less convenient option to revive because when you die in Don’t Starve Together, you have a time limit to respawn before your world gets reset. If you are far away from one, you may lose your save. They are also one-time use per world, per player. This is the only revival option for the Hardcore mode.
The Telltale Heart is the best way to revive your friends if you’re playing in co-op. The Telltale Heart is a craftable item that requires only three grass, one spider gland and an alchemy machine to create.
If one of your friends is dead, simply give this item to their ghost and they will revive. Keep in mind that this item also gives a -25% to base HP debuff. It is one of the simplest methods of revival, however, it requires a lot of sanity to craft and the debuffs are pretty hard to ignore.
The Meat Effigy is the best, and simplest method for solo players to revive. The Meat Effigy is a placable structure that can be crafted with 4 boards, 4 beard hair, and 40 HP. Upon crafting it, you can place it wherever you want inside your base.
If you die while you own a Meat Effigy, a button will appear under your calendar that can activate your effigy and spawn you where you have placed it, consuming it. It is one of the better methods of revival because you can choose where you spawn and you don’t have to worry about supplies when respawning.
The Life-Giving Amulet is another craftable item that can resurrect players. It is one of the best late-game items to craft in Don’t Starve Together. It requires 3 gold, 2 nightmare fuel, and a red gem. You can also get it as a drop from certain monsters.
When you die, you can just haunt it as a ghost and you will respawn right where you died, putting all monsters to sleep in the process. It also heals you while you hold it in your inventory every 30 seconds, but it makes you lose hunger.

How To Revive in Don’t Starve Together
Don’t Starve Together transforms the popular survival game into a cooperative adventure, pitting groups of players against various vicious threats. Unlike the main game, Don’t Starve Together doesn’t feature any plot, simply putting the characters in the alternate dimension and forcing them to work together to survive. Don’t Starve has a much more hefty narrative focus, adding to the spookiness factor.
How to revive yourself in Don’t Starve
Revival works three different ways in the base Don’t Starve game, and the multiplayer version Don’t Starve Together. In the base game, death is final. When you get taken out, you will not be coming back unless you have a very specific item, the presthatitator . Upon death in Adventure Mode, all items from before the transition from Sandbox to Adventure Mode will remain on your person. So that’s handy, but with the base game locking off the resurrection for all but one method.
You need to build the presthatitator using the following items:
How to revive yourself in Don’t Starve Together
In Don’t Starve Together, resurrection mechanics have changed compared to the base game. In Don’t Starve Together , you turn into a ghost upon dying. Players in this mode can use the Florid Postern in Endless Mode as well. You can still revive in Don’t Starve Together, but it takes some extra work. There are currently four Items that can allow you to revive in Don’t Starve Together with other methods.
Resurrection incurs a maximum-health penalty, unless a Life Giving Amulet, a Meat Effigy, a Second Chance Watch, or a Touch Stone was used for the resurrection. You must keep some of these items handy if you’re going to keep playing long-term.
The Life Giving Amulet is an item that you can craft in Don’t Starve Together. You need the following items to make it:
- 2x Nightmare Fuel
- 3x Gold Nuggets
You can also make a Meat Effigy with the following items:
- 4x Beard Hairs

Don’t Starve Together Reviving Players And Yourself Guide
Don’t Starve Together, the popular multiplayer survival game, can be a challenging and thrilling experience as you and your friends navigate the dangerous world. One of the most crucial aspects of the game is learning how to revive yourself and your teammates when the going gets tough. In this guide, we will explore the various revival mechanics and provide tips to help you and your friends overcome the challenges of Don’t Starve Together. So, let’s dive into the world of resurrection and revival, and learn how to come back from the brink of death.
If you’re new to Don’t Starve Together, touchstones will likely be your first encounter with revival mechanics. These rune-infused stones of resurrection function a bit differently in the multiplayer version compared to their solo counterparts, but they still serve the same purpose. When you resurrect at a touchstone, your health will be at 50, and your hunger and sanity will be at 2/3 of their maximum value. Keep in mind that touchstones are one-time use for each player, so it’s essential to have alternative revival plans in place.
Be aware that touchstones can also be found in caves, which is unique to Don’t Starve Together. However, remember to bring a light source and plan ahead to avoid getting caught in a dangerous situation.
Meat effigies, available in both solo and multiplayer versions of Don’t Starve, work differently in Don’t Starve Together. To craft one, you’ll need a Prestihatitator, four boards, four beard hairs, and 40 points of your own health. When you build a meat effigy, it takes your health away and displays a new icon near your health bar.
After you die and revive through the meat effigy, your health will be at 50, and your hunger and sanity will follow the same pattern as with touchstones. Be mindful that meat effigies are also a one-time use item.
Telltale hearts are another revival item in Don’t Starve Together that come with their own set of pros and cons. Crafting a telltale heart requires sacrificing 40 points of your own health. When you give the heart to a ghost, you instantly gain 80 sanity, while the revived player suffers a 25% reduction in their maximum health.
The revived player’s hunger and sanity will also be affected similarly to the touchstone and meat effigy methods. Although telltale hearts are easy to use, you’ll need booster shots to fix the maximum health reduction eventually.
As you progress through Don’t Starve Together, life-giving amulets become an essential item for reviving yourself and your friends. You can craft these amulets with a shadow manipulator or obtain them through grave-digging, killing Klaus, or destroying pseudoscience machines. To revive using a life-giving amulet, haunt one, and your health, hunger, and sanity will be affected similarly to the other methods. Additionally, wearing a life-giving amulet grants you five health for every five points of hunger every 30 seconds, consuming 5% of its durability with each use.
In the endless mode of Don’t Starve Together, players can use the Florid Postern to revive themselves. However, this method comes with a significant penalty: a 25% reduction in your maximum health. While the Florid Postern offers a convenient way to come back to life, the impact on your overall health makes it a less-than-ideal option for long-term survival.
Helpful Tips for Reviving in Don’t Starve Together
To make the revival process smoother, consider implementing these useful strategies:
- Resource Management: Leave resources near revival locations, so returning players have an easier time getting back on their feet. This can be a game-changer in helping your friends recover and continue their journey in Don’t Starve Together.
- Save Touchstones for Emergencies: Touchstones are a valuable, one-time use resource. It’s wise to save them for major emergencies or situations where other revival methods are unavailable. This ensures that you and your friends have a backup plan when things get dire.
Mastering the art of reviving in Don’t Starve Together is essential for you and your friends to survive and thrive in the game. Familiarize yourself with touchstones, meat effigies, telltale hearts, life-giving amulets, and the Florid Postern in endless mode to ensure you’re prepared for any situation.
Remember to manage your resources, save touchstones for emergencies, and communicate with your team to make the most of your reviving strategies. With these tips and insights, you’ll be well on your way to conquering the challenges of Don’t Starve Together. Good luck, and happy gaming!

How to get insight in don't starve together.
To get Insight in Don't Starve Together , you have to survive for several days . The more days your character survives, the more Insights they will get. Even if the character eventually fails, the Insight build-up continues in the next playthrough, and, eventually, you’ll manage to collect all the Insight points a character can have.
Staying in Ghost form and letting the days pass won’t build the Insight meter.
It’s important to know that each character gains up to 15 Insight points, which isn’t enough to maximize their Skill Tree. For players that accidentally upgraded a skill or didn’t like what they bought with Insight, you can reset the Skill Tree by heading to the character’s Skillset and pressing the Reset Insight button . It will give all the Insights back, and you can place them back again in any order. Changing Skills won’t affect ongoing playthroughs , however, and only works on new gameplays.
The first Insight is gained after five days of surviving, then it takes eight days to get the second. After that, the more Insights you acquire, the longer days it takes to get another. It ends up requiring players to survive 15 days to get one Insight, which sums up a total of a whopping 160 days to collect all 15 Insights in one go.

In Don't Starve Together , Ghosts cannot be revived with a Telltale Heart , and attempting to do so will result in a unique quote from the player character.
Ghosts are fairly slow, and the player can easily outrun them. They have a very large insanity aura, so they can be noticed pursuing the player via the aura while they're not visible on screen. Ghosts will attack anything in their path, often killing small animals in a single blow, so they can be led to mobs if the player wants to lose them.
A Ghost will have a sad appearance, similar to Abigail , when at low health.
In Don't Starve Together , Ghosts are neutral towards Wendy .
Below is the number of hits it takes with each weapon to kill Ghosts when playing with characters with a default damage modifier. The Weather Pain is not included due to the random nature of its projectile.
- Because Ghosts will disappear after a while and do not drop anything, it is best to just let them be. The easiest way to kill a Ghost is by luring it to a few Pigs or a Beefalo ; this way the Pigs or Beefalo will kill the Ghost.
- A Ghost can also be used as a grinder; let it kill whatever enemy it comes across, then take the drops.
- Ghosts are very slow and can be easily outrun. After the player has run a distance, the pursuing Ghost will likely have found another mob to be aggressive against.
- Despite levitating above the ground, Ghosts are not immune to Tooth Traps .
- Ghosts try to kill planted Mandrakes , despite them being invulnerable while planted; this causes them to simply hover above it.
