Brief details about the NPCs

Having NPCs in your homes is one of the best aspects of Terraria, as the characters will help you perform in the game. To avoid surprises, it is convenient to know some information related to them:

  • Having NPCs in a house will reduce the spawn level of enemies in the area. If you have three or more NPCs fairly close to each other, no more enemies will spawn except in special events.
  • For an NPC to move to one of your houses, there must be at least one room of at least 10x6 dimensions, with light, a bed, a flat piece of furniture, another comfort piece, and a door. The walls, ceiling, and floor must not be made of earth.
  • If an NPC dies, to make it respawn you must continue to meet the requirements. Until then, the NPC will not revive.
  • In case something happens in the houses or rooms where the NPCs live, they will leave until you repair the homes or create new houses for them.
  • You can't attack NPCs unless you use Rotten Eggs, get them to fall into lava, or drown them in water. They regenerate health over time and can be targeted by an enemy.
