The Staircase is a craftable item used to instantly create a ladder that leads down one level in The Mines or Skull Cavern. It cannot be placed on level 0 or 120 of the mines. Staircases cannot be stacked in inventory or chests.

Staircases work just like the game-supplied down-ladders. Each one works only for one use. If you leave the mine or return to a higher level and look for one you placed earlier, you will find that it is gone. In addition, once a staircase has been placed, it cannot be picked up again, even if it has not been used.

If you do not have enough Stone to craft a staircase, you can buy Stone from Robin at the Carpenter's Shop. In game year 1, the cost is 99 Stones × Gold.png20g = Gold.png1,980g per staircase. In game year 2+, the cost is 99 Stones × Gold.png50g = Gold.png4,950g per staircase.

Tips

  • Use a staircase to evade one or more monster fights. Some mine levels can be especially challenging. Consider upgrading your weapon instead, though.
  • Use staircases in the Skull Cavern to quickly descend to lower levels for greater chances of valuable items, like Iridium Ore and Prismatic Shards.
