Djinn's Curse is a Hardmode vanity item that can be equipped in the "pants" slot. It visually replaces the player's feet with a genie-like effect, similar to the Desert Spirit's appearance. It has a
3.33*1/30 (3.33%) chance of dropping from Desert Spirits. However, the Desert Spirit will only drop one of its special drops at a time (i.e. it may drop either the Desert Spirit Lamp or the Djinn's Curse, but never both).
- While running with the Hermes Boots or any other boots, it will instead use the Spectre Boots' flying sound effect.
- This item and the Featherfall Potion are the only items that can prevent fall damage while the Stoned debuff is active.
- Due to programming limitations, Djinn's Curse does not appear on Mannequins like it does on players; instead, it is shown as a pair of purple pants:
- Djinn, jinn, or genies are creatures from Arabian mythology that were the basis of stories about genies who grant wishes. As many genie stories involve the granting of a selfish wish at some horrible unforeseen expense, Djinn's Curse refers to the player being granted the ability to float, at the expense of having to sacrifice their feet (and potentially, defense from armor pieces), which is reflected in the tooltip.
- The Djinn's Curse is labeled in-game as a "vanity item", despite having a functional effect when worn in the main armor slot.
