I'm trying to figure out wiring; I have the following diagram, a heart statue hooked up to a 1-second timer. The timer is on, but the statue is not activating. What's wrong with my wiring?

  • Are you waiting 10 seconds? The Heart Statue can only be activated once every 10 seconds. terraria.gamepedia.com/Heart_Statue – William Jackson Oct 13 '13 at 13:13
  • I waited a lot longer than that; nothing happened. – user17879 Oct 13 '13 at 16:36
  • @WilliamJackson the first activation is instantaneous, you don't need to wait 10 seconds for the first heart to pop. – kotekzot Oct 14 '13 at 13:19

According to the Terraria Gamepedia page about Heart Statues it could be because of this:

The statue also will not spawn a heart if there are 10 or more hearts anywhere in the world, 6 or more hearts within 800 pixels (100 blocks), or 3 or more hearts within 300 pixels (36 blocks).

Perhaps there are a few hearts somewhere underground below you?

  • Fighting bosses often leaves many loose hearts lying around. Save and reload to clear them. – kotekzot Oct 14 '13 at 13:20

You need to use a 5 second timer. It worked for me.

  • While it's no more advantageous to use a 1-second timer than a 5-second timer, due to the 10-second minimum delay on statue activations, either timer works equally well. A 3-second timer, on the other hand, would not be recommended. – Michaellogg Jul 27 '15 at 1:24
