This is a town NPC. You may need a home in order for it to appear.

The Wizard is a Hardmode NPC that sells magic-related items. The Wizard can be acquired via open areas in a Dungeon or anywhere underground during Hardmode. He can be found at the cavern layer or lower, where he spawns rarely and appears to be bound, much like the Goblin Tinkerer and Mechanic. Talking to him will free him, after which he will respawn as long as a vacant house is available, even if killed.

Once the Wizard has been freed, he will sell the following:

[edit] Names

The wizard may have any of the following names: Dalamar, Dulais, Elric, Arddun, Maelor, Leomund, Hirael, Gwentor, Greum, Gearroid, Fizban, Ningauble, Seonag, Sargon, Merlin, Magius, Berwyn, Arwyn, Alasdair, Tagar, Wizard, and Xanadu.

Most of these names refer to famous wizards in popular culture: Merlin from the Matter of Britain, Ningauble from the adventures of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, Leomund, Fizban, and Dalamar from Dungeons & Dragons settings Greyhawk and Dragonlance. The name Sargon may be a reference to Sargon, an ancient Akkadian king.

[edit] Tips

  • The Dungeon contains a large number of open areas that may provide the most frequent opportunities for the Wizard to spawn.

[edit] Trivia

  • He may be slightly senile, as he confuses the player with NPCs of the same gender residing in Town.
  • The name "Elric" is likely a reference to Edward Elric, a character from Fullmetal Alchemist
  • During night, his quotes always ends with (no? ok). This might be a reference to the meme (no? ok).

[edit] Quotes

  • "Well, hi there, [name of another NPC same gender as the player]! What can I do for you today?"

During night:

  • "Want me to pull a coin from behind your ear? No? Ok."
  • "I make a rather enchanting hot chocolate if you'd be inter... No? Ok."
  • "Do you want some magic candy? No? Ok."

During day:'

  • "Ever wanted an enchanted ring that turns rocks into slimes? Well neither did I." (reference to the first mod in Terraria where you could get a ring which turns blocks into monsters)
  • "Someone once told me friendship is magic. That's ridiculous. You can't turn people into frogs with friendship." (a reference to the popular children's show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic)
  • "I once tried to bring an Angel Statue to life. It didn't do anything." -- (a continuation of a running in-game joke about how the Angel Statue is utterly useless, and a possible reference to the Doctor Who series "weeping angels" which can only move when you cannot see them)
  • "Are you here for a peek at my crystal ball?"
  • "I can see your future now... You will buy a lot of items from me!"

When homeless

  • "Ohh, my hero!"
  • "Oh, how heroic! Thank you for saving me, young (man/lady)!"
  • "Now that we know each other, I can move in with you, right?"

When rescued

  • "Thanks for saving me, friend! This bondage was starting to chafe."

[edit] History

  • 1.1.1: Now can be untied with Autopause enabled.
  • 1.1: Introduced.

[edit] Bugs

Anomaly.png
Anomaly: The Wizard has a chance to be named "Wizard"
Bug.png
Bug : Sometimes, when the wizard is killed during a blood moon (needs to be confirmed), his icon will still be available under the NPC housing registry. He can still be assigned to an available house, but he will not spawn and his name in the registry will be "Wizard" (multiplayer)(needs to be confirmed).
  • Possible fixes may include:
  • Wait for about 10-15 minutes, then double check the registry. If a name appears when you mouse over his icon, place his housing flag and move away, allowing him to spawn.
  • Restart your world.
  • If 2 doesn't work, restart your client.
  • Have all the members of your world (if you're running a private world and not a dedicated server) leave and then rejoin.
  • If you're running a world with a server application, restart the server completely, then check the NPC registry.
