First Appearance

Update 0.11.0

Desert Wells are Generated Structures added in Update 0.11.0. They are wells made out of Sandstone.


Desert Wells can be rarely found in Desert Biomes.


Desert Wells are structured similarly to Village wells, and have an infinite stream of Water in the middle. The building material is Sandstone. The Wells serve as a source of water for the Player as Deserts usually contain little to no Water.

No loot is found in Desert Wells, and no Strongholds generate below Desert Wells, contrary to popular belief.


  • A single Desert Well has a 1/10 chance to generate in a Desert.
  • Desert Wells can spawn in Old Worlds, however, the chance of this occuring is very rare due to the latter's limited size.
