The Wizard is a Hardmode NPC vendor who sells magic-related items. As soon as the Wall of Flesh has been defeated, he rarely spawns in the cavern layer or below. Similar to the Goblin Tinkerer, Mechanic, Golfer, and Stylist, he first spawns as the stationary Bound Wizard. Talking to him will free him, after which he will respawn as long as a vacant house is available, even if killed.

Desktop, Console, and Mobile versions When enemies are in his vicinity, the Wizard hurls fireballs at them in a similar fashion to the Flower of Fire.

The Bound Wizard is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform AnalyzerDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions.

Items sold[edit | edit source]

Note: All item prices can be decreased by equipping a Discount Card or Greedy RingDesktop, Console, and Mobile versions. On the Desktop version Desktop version, prices can also be higher or lower based on the NPC's happiness level.
