We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The Ragged Caster is a Hardmode enemy found in the post-Plantera Dungeon.

They rapidly teleport and fire three shots before teleporting to a new location on screen. Unlike the other Hardmode dungeon casters, the Ragged Caster will not teleport immediately after being hit. However, Ragged Casters have no delay between teleporting and firing their shots.

A Ragged Caster's projectiles will home in on the player, and inflict the Blackout debuff when they hit. They are immune to the Poisoned and Venom debuffs.

Ragged Casters are much more common in dungeon areas backed by Slab Walls.

Like several other post-Plantera dungeon enemies, Ragged Casters have different variants with slightly different statistics.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • A weapon that has homing projectiles will be extremely effective against ragged casters.
