Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "Which doctor am I? The Witch Doctor am I."
  • "Choose wisely, [Name of Character], my commodities are volatile and my dark arts, mysterious."
  • "[Name of Nurse] may help heal your body, but I can make you embody healing." (Only if Nurse is present)
  • "The heart of magic is nature. The nature of hearts is magic."
  • "I sense a kindred spirit in the Etherian Dark Mages. A pity they are our enemies, I would have liked to learn from them."

During a Party

  • "I wanted to see how your kind celebrate, I am not disappointed"

Names[edit | edit source]

The Witch Doctor may have any of the following names:

  • Abibe
  • Gboto
  • Jamundi
  • Kogi-ghi
  • Konah
  • Opuni
  • Tairona
  • U'wa
  • Xirigua
  • Zop'a

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Players do not need to move the Witch Doctor to the Jungle biome, placing 80 Jungle blocks (Jungle Grass Seed on Mud) near his house will change the Biome and allow you to buy from his Jungle specific inventory.
  • Players can also summon the Witch Doctor to the Jungle using the King Statue to gain access to his special buys.
  • Lihzahrd blocks will also count towards a Jungle biome, but won't spawn Jungle hostiles.
  • A house counts as within a Jungle biome if the background changes to the Jungle-themed background while in the housing, or Jungle-themed music starts to play.
  • The Witch Doctor is a Lihzahrd, as can be seen by his green skin and tail. This is especially evident by his party quote, "I wanted to see how your kind celebrate". This was confirmed by Leinfors on the Terraria forums.[1]
