Did your Stairs get destroyed by an enemy? If you are high enough, you will take fall damage once you land!

Fall Damage Ignores Your Shield!

Even if you are shielded up, taking fall damage will directly affect your health! Remember this when making stairs so you can be more cautious!

Using a Wall to reinforce your Stairs is a great way to negate some of the dangers of the Stairs.
