Expert Mode-Only Content: This information applies only to Expert mode and Expert mode worlds.

The Phylactery is a Hardmode accessory that is obtained from the Treasure Bag of The Lich in Expert Mode only. When equipped, it grants the player death prevention, returning them to 25% of their maximum health after taking fatal damage. This effect can only be active every 5 minutes, so it does not provide infinite avoidance of death.

While the player has the death prevention effect available, their life recovery is increased by 5, restoring health regardless of natural life regeneration or debuffs.
