This is a Town NPC. A House may be required in order for it to appear.

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, 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 VersionConsole VersionMobile Version 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 VersionConsole VersionMobile Version.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Dungeon contains a large number of open areas that may provide the most frequent opportunities for the Wizard to spawn. Until defeating Plantera, no new Hardmode enemies spawn there, making it a safe and quick place to search for him.
  • A Hunter Potion can be used to locate the Wizard.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Wizard may be slightly senile or have prosopagnosia, as he confuses the player with NPCs of the same gender that have moved in.
  • Most of the Wizard's names refer to wizards from popular culture:
  • The quote "Ever wanted an enchanted ring that turns rocks into slimes? Well neither did I." is a reference to the first mod in Terraria which allowed turning blocks into enemies.
  • The quote "Someone once told me friendship is magic. [...]" is a reference to the Canadian-American children's animated fantasy television series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic.
  • The quote "I once tried to bring an Angel Statue to life. It didn't do anything." is a continuation of a running in-game joke about how the Angel Statue is utterly useless.
  • The quote "Are you here for a peek at my crystal ball?" refers to the Wizard selling a Crystal Ball. A crystal ball is furthermore very commonly associated with sorcery and clairvoyance.
  • The quote "You know, I think I've seen a portal like that before, but it was gold." is most likely a reference to Coin PortalsDesktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version.
