Minimum viable Merchant NPC room. See full requirements, below.

Merchant NPCs are non-player characters that will sell items to the player in exchange for other items. They are factionally neutral and passive, but can take damage from players, die and respawn.

They have special room requirements to move in. But can also be found out in the world, before accessing their summoning item.

Merchant NPC List[edit]

Room Requirements[edit]

In order for an NPC to move into your base, the following conditions must be met:

  • Room fully enclosed with any wall type and optional door.
  • Room can be shared with other NPCs.
  • 4 to 64 tiles of floor area (e.g. 2x2 to 8x8).
  • One tile of empty floor space (including free of Torches and 2x2 Stone Tiles or Core Relief Tile).
  • One crafted Bed per NPC (can be shared with a player but not another NPC).
  • Their specific NPC summoning item is placed on the ground. E.g. Slime Oil or Mysterious Idol.
  • If moving the NPC from another room, their old bed must be picked up.
  • They will teleport while on-screen and player is in the new room. But may linger in player is close to their current position.
  • If they won't appear, try exiting and reloading the world.
  • If they still won't appear, try to hunt them down at their natural spawn scene - Caveling Merchant in The Forgotten Ruins, Fishing Merchant in Azeos' Wilderness.

Tips and Tricks[edit]

Thunder beam proc on NPC
  • Holding their summoning item in your hand will coax an NPC to walk towards you.
  • Placing the summoning item behind a door in a side wall will allow you in and out while trapping them inside.
  • The NPCs have a massive 100k health and can be hit to activate your Soul of Azeos thunder beam ability. This will break almost any wall in its path and leave permanent illumination, that can be shut off by placing any block in that tile.
