The Merchant is an NPC who appears when all players on a world have a combined total of at least 50 Silver Coins and there is a Home for him to live in. Once the requirements are met, the Merchant will move into a vacant home in the player's world and begin to buy and sell items.

Notes

  • Considering how easily one can obtain 50 within the first few nights of a new game, the Merchant is considered the easiest NPC to obtain (besides the Guide).
  • Sometimes on the iOS version you will get a second Safe on purchase.

Trivia

  • It is possible to have both your Merchant and Clothier named Alfred, but this is very uncommon.
  • Before v1.1, it was possible to get up to three Merchants in your world at a time. The second Merchant required at least 3 players with 50 , while the third required at least 5 players with 5 .
  • The Merchant seems to be very interested in the Eye of Cthulhu.

Update Info

v1.1

  • Is now designated a randomly generated name when spawned.
  • No longer possible to have multiple Merchants in one world.

v1.0.0

  • Introduced.
