Heartstone is a block which was added during Valentine's Week 2013. Breaking one will drop a limited Valentine's item. Heartstones stopped spawning starting from 2016's Valentine's Week. Instead, 4 Golden Booty Chests spawn randomly in worlds with high-rarity items placed. They can still be made by spraying Love Potion #8 on Rocks, however. Breaking your first Heartstone or Golden Booty Chest will cause the player to earn the achievement Heartbreaker.
History and Obtaining
When first introduced during Valentine's Week 2013, the Heartstone would spawn every Valentine's Week in worlds with 'high-rarity items', replacing any Rocks placed or naturally spawned in the world. However, players began to exploit this and would make worlds filled with Rocks and filled with farmable items to make up for the high rarity.
During Valentine's Week 2016, Heartstones no longer spawned and were instead replaced with Golden Booty Chests that would naturally spawn in worlds. Heartstones could still be created by consuming a Love Potion #8 on a Rock. Players continued to abuse the new Golden Booty Chests, filling worlds with high rarity items.
In 2017, Golden Booty Chests no longer spawned. Instead, Golden Booty Chests were given out to players through the Share the Love special event which could be randomly spawned during Valentine's Week if a world is populated with players. The Ruby Lock was also introduced which would give a 1% chance of spawning a Heartstone in a world.
- The world needs to have existed before Valentine's Week.
- The world must have a certain rarity. During the 2014 Valentines Event, a single row (100) of medium rarity farmables (e.g. Sugar Cane, Sharp Bass) could already yield Heartstones.
- Back in 2015 when ex-developer @Hamumu had a Q&A session, he mentioned an alternative way to create an existing item that nobody had found yet, which referred to the Heartstone's harmonized crystal-based recipe.
