|Function||Allows the Reforging of items and the purchase of certain other items|
In order to spawn the Goblin Tinkerer in a world, the only thing you need to do is defeat the Goblin Army at least once in that world. You do not need to beat the Wall of Flesh to find him. He will then be found in the dungeon (though he technically can be found anywhere under sea level,) bound much like the Mechanic or Wizard. You will need to rescue the Goblin Tinkerer by right-clicking on him. In the dungeon, he may be found above or below sea level, though he is usually in the rocky layer.
Once rescued, the Goblin Tinkerer will stay in the vicinity until you build and/or assign a suitable Home for him. If he dies before you rescue him, he will respawn at a random location and will still need to be rescued. Reloading the game or dying after finding the Tinkerer without rescuing him will also cause him to respawn at a random location, and he will still need to be rescued. It is highly recommended that you have a suitable house already built for the Goblin Tinkerer before you set out to find him. If you have a suitable house for him when you find him, he won't move in until he dies so that he can respawn near your home.
An easy way to find the Goblin Tinkerer is to just search the entire dungeon and exit the world if he's not there. When you enter the world again, the Goblin Tinkerer will respawn in a different location. If you search the dungeon and exit/enter the world enough times, eventually he will respawn in the dungeon and you can rescue him there. The easiest way to teleport him from the dungeon to his house is to use the King Statue.
|Note: Upon adding a new name, make sure you add it in alphabetical order (abc)
- Judging by his dialogue, he appears to be an outcast from the Goblin Army.
- When the Goblin Tinkerer remarks how the Goblin Army will fight over cloth, it gives a clue on how to summon them using the Tattered Cloth. This might also be a reference to a quest in Runescape where goblins are fighing over colored cloth.
- One of his quotes refers to the fact that in reality, gold is a far weaker metal than iron. It could also be a reference to the game Minecraft (which is often compared to Terraria), where gold items are also inferior to iron items.
- Another quote is a reference to an internet meme "Yo Dawg Xzibit"
- He seems to have a crush on the Mechanic and vice versa.
- If the Goblin Tinkerer dies after being freed, he will respawn like any other NPC near your house and won't have to be freed again.
- He is the only NPC that stays in a normal state on a Blood Moon. This is likely because he is a goblin. (Santa Claus also stays normal during Blood Moons, probably because it's unlikely that you'll get a Blood Moon during the short amount of time he's present in your world.)
- The name "Dalek", along with "The Doctor's Outfit", is a reference to British television show Doctor Who.
- As of version 1.2 - 18.104.22.168 (remaining unpatched as of now) the Goblin Tinkerer's Reforge function can be used to duplicate certain weapons by specific movements of the mouse, and placement of the item in the box.
- If you reforge using the language Spanish the object that you reforge may disappear
- Can now be unbound while playing with autopause on.
- Added to the game.
