Bound Wizard.png
Internal NPC ID: C

The Wizard is a Hardmode NPC that sells magic-related items. The Wizard can be acquired via open areas 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 Stylist, 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.

When enemies are in his vicinity, the Wizard hurls fireballs at them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • He may be slightly senile, as he confuses the player with NPCs of the same gender residing in Town.
  • Most of the Wizard's names refer to wizards from popular culture: Merlin from the Matter of Britain, Michael Moorcock's Elric of Melniboné, 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, or to the DC Comics character Sargon the Sorcerer. Many of the rest refer to elves from the Silmarillion and The Lord of the Rings including Hirael, Maelor, Arwyn, and possibly Berwyn.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

  • "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 TV 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."
