This is a Town NPC. A House may be required 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 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.

Desktop VersionConsole Version When enemies are in his vicinity, the Wizard hurls fireballs at them in a similar fashion to the Flower of Fire.

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.
  • The Bound Wizard is one of the few entities that can be detected by the Lifeform Analyzer.
  • A Hunter Potion can be used to locate the Wizard.

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 possibly a reference to Weeping Angels in Doctor Who.)
  • "Are you here for a peek at my crystal ball?" (reference to him selling a Crystal Ball, which is also the item most commonly bought from the Wizard)
  • "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."

During a party

  • "Clearly I throw the most magical of parties."

After defeating Tier 1 of the Old One's Army:

  • "You know, I think I've seen a portal like that before, but it was gold."
