Wraiths are Hardmode ghost-like enemies that can travel through blocks. They can inflict the Slow debuff on the player. They have black bodies, which render them almost completely invisible in dark areas, but have two glowing red eyes that are visible from within the darkness. They spawn at the surface layer at night.

Wraiths appear to be flying, however within empty space they can only hover slightly off the ground. They can only fly upwards when they have foreground blocks to "swim" through.

Wraiths are immune to the Poisoned, On Fire!, Cursed Inferno, Venom, Confused, and Shadowflame debuffs.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • One or two Wraiths spawn upon destroying a Demon or Crimson Altar, regardless of the time of day.
  • Wraiths are more common during a new moon.
  • Wraiths can be attacked through walls with melee weapons or other weapons whose attack animation does not end when it hits a wall - this makes spears especially effective.
  • Wraiths will not trigger pressure plates, and will just go through them instead. This makes them incapable of activating any sort of trap.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Any structure raised least 8 tiles above the surface will prevent a Wraith from levitating up and through it.
  • Wraiths can be spawned pre-Hardmode by using a Wraith Statue.
