The Ragged Caster is a monster that spawns in the Dungeon during Hard Mode. As with all Hardmode Dungeon monsters, they can't be found until one has killed Plantera. They can only be found in the Rusted Company area in the dungeon, where you also can find Rusty Armored Bones and Skeleton Snipers. These areas are marked by Rusted Company Standard banners.
Shortly after spawning, Ragged Casters will fire a constant barrage of homing projectiles that inflict Blackout, making it very difficult to navigate to and kill the caster as there is no accessory or potion that prevents this debuff. This makes them very dangerous and potentially lethal to players who have been caught off-guard.
Unlike the other mage-type enemies that spawn after Plantera's defeat (Diabolist and Necromancer), Ragged Casters will not teleport away upon being hit, allowing you to use weapons such as the Nettle Burst to render them useless and defeat them quickly. However, they can still be very dangerous to weaker players, as they will teleport away very quickly if not taking constant damage, much faster than the Dark Caster, so caution should be advised when facing one.
