The Iridium Scythe is a tool obtained from the Mastery Cave after choosing the Farming Mastery path.

The Iridium Scythe has the following benefits:

  • Can harvest items grown on tilled soil within its swing range, including regular crops, those grown in Garden Pots, Spring Onions, and other forageables grown from Wild Seeds.
  • Its radius is larger than the Golden Scythe[1] and it is more likely to cut all grass in its radius.
  • 100% chance per swipe to harvest hay from grass, up from 75%.[2]
  • Inflicts 20 damage, up from 13.[1]

It is the most powerful version of the Scythe. It increases the effectiveness of the Scythe and Golden Scythe by a substantial amount and adds a purple hue.


  • The Iridium Scythe currently yields no foraging experience/mastery experience for harvesting forageables made from wild seeds.
